"Background : Interferon gamma (IFN-γ)-inducible protein 10 (IP-10) and monokine induced by IFN-γ(Mig) are members of CXC-chemokine family, that are produced from macrophage/monocyte activated by IFN-γ. These chemokines especially recruit activated T cell into inflammatory site. Here, we studied effect of lipopolysaccharide (LPS), interleukin (IL)-12/IL-2 or IFN-γon induction of MIG and IP-10 in mouse brain. Methods : In order to evaluate Mig and IP-10 gene expression in brain, we injected LPS, IFN-γor IL-12/IL-2 into mice intraperitoneally, and mea-sured chemokine message in brain by RT-PCR. Results : In vivo injection of LPS induced Mig and IP-10 gene expres-sion in brain of normal mice and IFN-γknockout mouse, however, in vivo injection of IL-12/IL-2 induced Mig and IP-10 gene expression in only the brain of normal mice. IFN-γinduced chemokine expression in cultured brain cells, but anti-inflammatory drugs did not block IFN-γeffects. Conclusions : Immune stimulating agents, LPS or IL-12/IL-2 or IFN-γ, can induce T cell chemokine gene expression in brain cells, and these chemokines may play a role in T cell infil-tration in various brain diseases.
