Example text

7 integrins β7 integrins such as α4β7 are expressed on eosinophils and a subset of gut-homing lymphocytes. On eosinophils, α4β7 mediates binding to two different ligands on endothelial cells (VCAM-1, and MAdCAM-1). As MAdCAM is not significantly expressed in the lung compared with the GI tract, MAdCAM plays a more important role in homing of cells expressing α4β7 to the gut, but less of a role in mediating eosinophil recruitment to the lung via α4β7 integrins. 3). 3). ICAM-1 deficient mice show substantially impaired lymphocyte and eosinophil trafficking into airways following antigen challenge.

IL-5, GM-CSF, or IL-3 receptor] as well as receptors that when triggered induce eosinophil apoptosis (Siglec-8, Fas). Thus, depending upon the profile of 28 ligands for these receptors expressed at sites of allergic inflammation, eosinophils may undergo apoptosis. Interestingly, incubating eosinophils with the survival cytokine IL-5 does not prevent their apoptosis being induced by activation of Siglec-8 receptors. Remodelling as a consequence of chronic allergic inflammation In contrast to the complete resolution of allergic inflammation without significant structural changes in the vast majority of individuals, a subset of subjects best studied in asthma may be predisposed to develop structural tissue changes termed ‘airway remodelling’.

A given leukocyte often expresses multiple chemokine receptors, and more than one chemokine typically binds to the same receptor. Examples of chemokine receptor expression by circulating cells important to allergic inflammation include: eosinophils and basophils, which express the CC chemokine receptor CCR3, T cells, which express CCR4 and CCR8, and dendritic cells, which express CCR6. CXCR chemokine receptor family Neutrophils express CXCR1 and CXCR2 receptors, which bind IL-8 and this mediates neutrophil tissue recruitment.
