E-GEOD-45382 - Gene expression in tolerogenic TGFb-treated macrophages
Released on 22 March 2013, last updated on 2 June 2014
F4/80+ macrophages treated with TGFb2 are potently tolerogenic. Our understanding of the molecular mechanisms mediating the development of these tolerogenic properties is incomplete. We used microarray analysis to identify molecules that are involved in the tolerogenic mechanisms in murine TGFb-treated macrophages. Thioglycolate-elicited peritoneal exudate cells (F4/80+ macrophages) were treated with either PBS or TGFb2 overnight then total RNA extracted and subjected to microarray analysis.
