Authors: Biriken D, Yazıhan N, Yılmaz Ş Abstract Macrophages are accepted as cells that initially contact with the pathogens and initiate the innate immune response. They play effective roles in innate immune and inflammatory responses by intercellular relations and inflammatory mediator secretion. Human THP-1 leukemia cells are frequently used for the in vitro determination of the signal pathways, and the functions of macrophages. Phorbol-12-Myristate-13-Acetate (PMA) is commonly used to induce macrophage differentiation of monocytic cell lines but the extent of differentiation in comparison to primary tissue m...
