Table 1 Il-4, GM-CSF, and IL-4/GM-CSF Increase CD23 Expression on ASMC (n = 3)

From: Research Upregulation of CD23 (FcεRII) Expression in Human Airway Smooth Muscle Cells (huASMC) in Response to IL-4, GM-CSF, and IL-4/GM-CSF

Cytokine (24 hours) #Cells in Gate D (n = 3) %Cells with Increased CD23 Expression Above the Control
BSA (1 μg/ml) 1,343 ± 122 0
IL-4 (0.5 nM) 1,413 ± 197 25.1 ± 4.2*
GM-CSF (0.4 nM) 1,346 ± 243 15.6 ± 2.7*
IL-4/GM-CSF (0.4/0.5 nM) 1,324 203 32.9 ± 13.9*
IL-5 (0.4 nM) 1,130 ± 251 0
IL-13 (0.4 nM) 1,316 ± 269 0
PGD2 (1 μM) 1,521 ± 123 0
PGD2 (10 μM) 1,159 ± 204 0
LTD4 (10 μM) 2,037 ± 375 0

  1. Alpha-smooth muscle isoactin positive Human ASMC (Clonetics) in T-75 flasks were starved for 24 h in 0.1% FBS containing medium M199. The cells were then stimulated with BSA (1 μg/ml), IL-4 (0.5 nM), GM-CSF (0.4 nM), IL-4 (0.5 nM)/GM-CSF (0.4 nM), IL-13 (0.4 nM), IL-5 (0.4 nM), PGD2 (10 μM), LTD4 (10 μM), tryptase (30 nM) for 24 h. Results are mean ± SEM of the percentage of cells with an increased fluorescence intensity above the control (n = 3). Control values: BSA-stimulated, PE-anti-CD23 labeled, 10.9 ± 1.4 %; BSA-stimulated, PE-mouse IgG1, non-immune, 0.5 ± 0.1 % (n = 3). *denotes significant increase in CD23 expression above the BSA control value.
