Cytokines are proteins that are produced constitutively as well as upon
stimulation by a lot of cell types. And the molecules probably have an even
larger number of target cells. They are important messengers and growth factors
in the system. Without cytokines or imbalance in different cytokines may
contribute to illness and disease.
The larger part of this site is about cytokines. Which cells and which kinds of
stimulation to use to detect a certain cytokine. Using a transport inhibitor or not. The site will not
go into the function and other properties of cytokines. Please
mail us with specific questions
and suggestions to further improve the site!
