Abstract

Background: Interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) or interleukin-4 (IL-4) drives widely different transcriptional programs in macrophages. However, how IFN-gamma and IL-4 alter expression of histone-modifying enzymes involved in epigenetic regulation and how this affects the resulting phenotypic polarization is incompletely understood.
