The importance and need for this special issue:
Currently, more than 200 histohormones of a protein nature are known as “cytokines”. They are involved in different processes: autocrine, paracrine, and endocrine regulation of the immune response as well as the inflammation. Inducible cytokine synthesis is associated with cell stress (CS). Interacting activated cells form a cytokine network. Stress develops in response to a wide range of factors of damage or potential damage, including changes in many parameters of homeostasis. Almost all nucleated cells produce some spectrum of cytokines. Cell stress development is associated with formation of an inducible network of transcriptional and other regulatory factors. Cell stress can be considered as a complex of particular processes, including the following: 1) oxidative stress; 2) DNA-damage response; 3) stress of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER-stress), including an increasing in cytoplasm of calcium ions concentration and production of inducible heat stroke proteins; 4) intensification of autophagy (lysosomal stress); 5) formation of inflammasomes in some cells; and other processes.
