cytokine network

cytokine network

a group of cytokines that together modulate and regulate key cellular functions.

cytokine network

a group of cytokines that modulate and regulate signaling between cells during immune responses. According to the immune network model, T cells and B cells mutually interact, responding to cytokines as well as antigens. This interaction allows the cytokines to direct T cells to antiviral or antitumor functions or to promote allergic reactions.
