Cytokine mRNA expression in B cells from bovine leukemia virus-infected cattle with persistent lymphocytosis.

We have characterized the expression of six cytokine mRNAs in highly purified B cells from bovine leukemia virus (BLV)-infected cows with persistent lymphocytosis. Selected cytokine mRNAs included those encoding tumor necrosis factor (TNF), lymphotoxin-alpha (LT-alpha), transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1), interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta), interleukin-6 (IL-6) and interleukin-10 (IL-10). Fresh B cells from cows with persistent lymphocytosis constitutively transcribed TNF, LT-alpha and TGF-beta1 mRNAs. Although IL-1beta, IL-6 and IL-10 mRNAs were barely detectable in fresh B cells from cows with persistent lymphocytosis, transcripts encoding these cytokines were strongly and rapidly upregulated in B cells after cell culture. Results from this study provide the first evidence that B cells infected with BLV express specific cytokine mRNAs in vivo.[1]
