英文摘要:

TNF-alpha is an important pro-inflammatory mediator that influences host defense against infection and cancer. Previous examinations of TNF-alpha release and synthesis within the context of age have provided conflicting data, as both increased and decreased TNF-alpha synthesis have been described in aged populations. The present study was designed to reevaluate TNF-alpha production and synthesis in primary cultured peritoneal macrophages of young and 18-month-old rats. We were also interested in the link between the production of this cytokine and other important mediators, such as prostaglandin I-2 (PGI(2)) and nitric oxide (NO) in these rats, Primary cultured peritoneal macrophages of rat were stimulated with 1.0 mu g/ml of lipopolysacharide (LPS) for 12 h. The level of TNF-alpha protein in culture supernatant was measured by enzyme-linked-immunosorbent-assay (ELISA), and TNF-alpha mRNA production was assessed by semi-quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). At the same time, the levels of NO and PGI(2) were measured, Macrophages from 18-month-old rats produced more TNF-alpha protein, PGI(2) and TNF-alpha mRNA than those From the young rats (2 month). There was no difference in NO production of macrophages between 18-month-old and young rats. The results demonstrate that TNF-alpha and PGI(2) production by rat macrophages increase with age. The results also suggest that NO might not contribute to the increased TNF-alpha production in 18-month-old rat macrophages. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
