Astroglial overproduction of TGF-beta 1 enhances inflammatory central nervous system disease in transgenic mice .
Cerebral expression of the injury response cytokine transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) has been found to be increased in several neurological diseases but it remains unclear whether its function is primarily beneficial or detrimental. Here we show that transgenic (tg) mice that overexpress bioactive (TGF-beta 1 in the central nervous system (CNS) and show no overt phenotype in the unmanipulated state, are more susceptible to the immune-mediated CNS disease experimental autoimmune ...Expand abstract
