Abstract

An allergen-stimulating cytokine, interleukin-13 (IL-13), plays a significant role in allergic inflammation. Benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC), derived from several cruciferous vegetables, significantly suppressed the IL-13 expression in the calcium iono-phore-stimulated human basophilic KU812 cells. Down-regulation of phosphorylated mitogenactivated protein kinases as well as nuclear transcriptional factors might be involved in the underlying mechanism.
