Invading pathogens are usually sensed by innate immune cells such as macrophages and DCs, which induce innate cytokine production. Upon bacterial and/or protozoan infection, proinflammatory cytokines such as TNFa, IFNg and IL-1b are induced by these innate cells. DCs that engulf pathogens and are activated by Toll-like receptors (TLRs) mature and migrate to the draining lymph node and activate T cells. A subset of DCs produces IL12 upon activation and thus induces Th1 cells (Shortman and Heath, 2010).

1991) are able to produce IL-4 upon stimulation. Basophils produce IL-4 and accumulate in the liver and lung after N. , 2004). , 2008). Basophils also produce TSLP. TSLP was originally identified from thymic stromal cells and thought to support growth and differentiation of T and B cells but is now considered to be a Th2inducing cytokine (Liu, 2006). Intriguingly, basophils are transiently recruited to the draining lymph node where Th2 cells are predominantly induced after T. , 2009). , 2010).
