In human peripheral blood, monocytes Interleukin-4 (IL4) and Interleukin-13 significantly downregulate the expression of classical proinflammatory signal transducers, such as Interleukin-1 (IL1), Interleukin-6, Interleukin-8, Interleukin-18, C-C motif chemokine 2 (CCL2) and Tumor necrosis factor (TNF). Expression of Prostaglandin G/H synthase 2 (PTGS2, COX2) and Arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase (ALOX5), enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of the proinflammatory eicosanoids, is also attenuated (Chatidis et al. 2005).
This is a black box event because the mechanism of gene regulation is not fully defined.
