LPS induction of gene expression in human monocytes

Lipopolysaccharide (LPS [endotoxin]) is the principal part of the outer membrane of Gram-negative micro organism. Recent research have elucidated how LPS is acknowledged by monocytes and macrophages of the innate immune system. Human monocytes are exquisitely delicate to LPS and reply by expressing many inflammatory cytokines. LPS binds to LPS-binding protein (LBP) in plasma and
