Activation of immune cells induces the expression of inflammatory
cytokines, chemokines, enzymes, and adhesion molecules that play
critical roles in the host response to microbial infection and tissue injury.
Under normal conditions, inflammation is tightly regulated and resolves
once the infection is cleared or the tissue is repaired. However,
uncontrolled and excessive inflammation may lead to the development
and progression of inflammatory diseases. Therefore, understanding the
regulation of inflammatory signaling in immune cells is essential for the
development of new therapeutic options for inflammatory diseases.
