P2X7-stimulated secretion of IL-1β. Splenocytes were primed in vitro with lipopolysaccharide and were then stimulated with 2'-3'-O-(4-benzoylbenzoyl)-adenosine 5'-triphosphate (BzATP) as indicated. The graph shows IL-1β secretion by cells from New Zealand Black mice (open squares) and New Zealand White mice (filled squares). Each line represents IL-1β secretion by cells from a single mouse.
