Abstract

Thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) is an epithelial cell-derived immunostimulatory factor, which activates several immune cells such as dendritic cells, T cells, and mast cells. Recently, epithelial cell-derived T S L P has gained im¬ mense attention as a cytokine that induces allergic immune responses. Therefore, understanding the regulation of TSLP production is an important step in uncovering the pathophysiology of allergic diseases. Moreover, the compounds that regulate TSLP production can be used as therapeutic drugs for the treatment of allergic diseases. We aim to elucidate the detailed regulation of TSLP production from epithelial cells, and in doing so discovered new regulating factors and an inhibitor of TSLP production. This review article explains the role of TSLP in allergic diseases, its regulation, and our research results.
