Its pivotal role in many human diseases has led to various in-depth studies regarding its release mechanism, in particular by TNF-aconverting enzyme (TACE). In this study we investigated the inhibitory effect of a TACE-inhibitor on cytokine release (TNF-a,IL-1a and IL-6) in three different cell models, including U937 cells, a recently established equine macrophage cell line, knownas eCAS, and primary equine PBMC. The aim was to show the similarity of TNF-a release through the TACE mechanism inhuman and equine cells after stimulation with LPS. Results indicate that, by using a TACE-inhibitor, TNF-a, IL-1a and IL-6release can be reduced in both equine cell models and achieved comparable results in the human U937 cells. These resultssuggest that equine TNF-a, like its human homologue, is released from its membrane-bound position by TACE.
