Possible Interaction: Glucosamine and Interferons



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

At 80 mM d -glucosamine or at 8 mM 2-deoxy- d -glucose, interferon production was inhibited by approximately 95%; however, at 20 and 2 mM, respectively, these inhibitors allowed interferon production at about 50% of levels produced by leukocytes not treated with the inhibitors.

Interferon production was inhibited in the Namalwa line of human lymphoblastoid cells by treatment with 2-deoxy-D-glucose or D-glucosamine.

Interferon synthesized in the presence of partially inhibitory concentrations of 2-deoxy-D-glucose or D-glucosamine were found to differ from interferons made in control cultures in some physical properties.

Residual active interferon made in the presence of d -glucosamine was less efficiently neutralized by anti-interferon antibody than control interferon.

Galactose (±uridine), glucosamine (±uridine), and N‐acetylmannosamine (ManNAc) (±cytidine) feeding resulted in 12%, 28%, and 32% increase in IFN‐γ sialylation as compared to the untreated control cultures.

The present data show that GlcN , but not GlcNAc, inhibits CD4+ T‐cell proliferation, the generation of alloreactive cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) and the secretion of interferon‐γ (IFN‐γ) and interleukin‐5 (IL‐5) in primary MLC.
