Interleukin-8-induced human peripheral blood B-lymphocyte chemotaxis in vitro.

We studied chemotactic effects of interleukin-8 (IL-8) on human peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) using micropore filter assays. As identification of chemotactic responses depends on the status of activation of cells, magnetic cell sorting (MACS) was performed providing freshly isolated B-lymphocytes of highest purity. B-lymphocytes responded chemotactically to IL-8 in a dose-dependent manner. We conclude that IL-8 may play a role in both T- and B-lymphocyte trafficking by acting directly on the cells.[1]
