Figure 8.32The nomenclature and functions of well-defined T-cell cytokines

The major actions are noted in boxes. Each cytokine has multiple activities on different cell types. The mixture of cytokines secreted by a given cell type produces many effects through what is called a ‘cytokine network.’ Major activities of effector cytokines are highlighted in red. ↑, increase; ↓, decrease; CTL, cytotoxic lymphocyte; NK, natural killer cell; CSF, colony-stimulating factor; IBD, inflammatory bowel disease; NO, nitric oxide.
