Abstract

Although Interleukin-10 (IL-10) has been recently shown to modulate lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced release of cytokines in human granulocytes, the intracellular signalling pathways of LPS have been only partially defined, while those of IL-10 remain unknown. The present study shows that LPS induces an increase in tyrosine phosphorylation of a discrete number of proteins, in a time- and concentration-dependent manner. In addition, IL-10 negatively influenced protein tyrosine phosphorylation in LPS-treated human polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN). The effect of IL-10 was evident only after 60 min LPS-stimulation and was detected by analysing either cell lysates or lysates which were previously immunoprecipitated with anti-phosphotyrosine antibodies. Amongst the tyrosine phosphoproteins mostly affected by IL-10 in LPS-stimulated cells were the species with molecular weights ranging from 46 to 49 kDa. The identity and possible function of these proteins remain unknown. Taken together, our results suggest th
