Screening for Novel Endogenous Inflammatory Stimuli Using the Secreted Embryonic Alkaline Phosphatase NF-κB Reporter Assay
Authors:  Lorena Zuliani-Alvarez, Anna M. Piccinini and Kim S Midwood, date: 04/05/2017, view: 2776, Q&A: 0
An immune response can be activated by pathogenic stimuli, as well as endogenous danger signals, triggering the activation of pattern recognition receptors and initiating signalling cascades that lead to inflammation. This method uses THP1-BlueTM ...
