In healthy PBMCs, SoJIA patient serum induced transcription 586 HESSNER et al of numerous genes related to innate immunity, including several members of the IL-1 cytokine/cytokine receptor family (IL-1b, IL-1R1, and IL-1R2), and chemokines involved in the chemotaxis of neutrophils (CXCL1, CXCL3, CXCL5, CXCL6). When directly comparing the expression profiles of SoJIA patient PBMCs versus healthy controls, many of the transcripts that were induced by SoJIA sera were present in SoJIA PBMCs, including IL-1b and the IL-1 decoy receptor (IL-1R2), CXCL1, and CCR1.
