Interaction Information:

Comment Consistent with the gene expression data, there were no CCR2-dependent alterations in the circulating concentration of IL-6. In contrast, lower circulating concentrations of PAI-1 in lean and obese Ccr2-/- mice were detected when compared with weightmatched Ccr2+/+ mice. These data reveal that CCR2 modulates circulating PAI-1 by a mechanism that is not primarily dependent upon adipose tissue expression or the development of obesity.
