S100A8 (A8) has roles in inflammation, differentiation and development and is associated with oxidative defense. Murine A8 (mA8) is up-regulated in macrophages, fibroblasts, and microvascular endothelial cells by LPS. Glucocorticoids (GCs) amplified LPS-induced mA8 in these cells. Relative to stimulation by LPS, GCs increased mA8 gene transcription and mRNA half-life. Enhancement required new protein synthesis, IL-10 and products of the cyclooxygenase-2 pathway, and both ERK1/2 and p38 MAPK....[Show more]
