Systemic Release of High Mobility Group Box 1 Protein during Severe Murine Influenza1
Hypercytokinemia is gaining recognition as the mechanism of fatality from influenza. No work to date has addressed the role of high mobility group box 1 protein (HMGB1) in influenza, the parallel being that in other severe proinflammatory cytokine syndromes (e.g., sepsis and malaria) levels of circulating HMGB1 are elevated and may correlate with death. Using a commercially available ELISA for HMGB1, we found that HMGB1 was not increased in the plasma of influenza virus-infected mice (A/Japan/...[Show more]
