|Abstract:||Present results showed that interleukin-1 (IL-1), IL-6 and transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) were constitutively expressed in the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei of the rat hypothalamus. Immunoreactive cells were also detected, but to a lesser extent, in other parts of hypothalamus as well as in the cerebral cortex. In rats immunized with IgG, there was moderate increase in immunoreactivities of the cytokines. A notable feature, however, was the induction of the cytokine expression in the lateral hypothalamic area and the amygdaloid nuclear complex, suggesting that the neurons in these two areas are involved in possible immune regulation.
