18. Differential Display Analysis of Gene Expression of Macrophages Activated by LPS


By the Differential Display Method, analysis was made of many LPS-inducible genes. Some were previously shown to be immune-system-related genes. Fifty five genes contained unknown sequences. In some cases,these genes may function to strengthen the host-defence mechanism.
