Participation Of Interleukin 17a In Neuroimmune Interactions.

Authors: Moynes DM, Vanner SJ, Lomax AE Abstract Inflammation involving the helper T cell 17 (Th17) subset of lymphocytes has been implicated in a number of diseases that affect the nervous system. As the canonical cytokine of Th17 cells, interleukin 17A (IL-17A) is thought to contribute to these neuroimmune interactions. The main receptor for IL-17A is expressed in many neural tissues. IL-17A has direct effects on neurons but can also impact neural function via signaling to satellite cells and immune cells. In the central nervous system, IL-17A has been associated with neuropathology in multiple sclerosis, epilepsy syndromes and ischemic brain injury. Effects of IL-17A at the level of dorsal root ganglia and the spinal cord may contribute to enhanced nociception during neuropathic…
