In turn, ARUP's multiplex panel for the measurement of mononuclear cell cytokine responses to mitogens (phytohemagglutinin, concanavalin A, and pokeweed mitogen) and specific antigens (tetanus and candida) simultaneously detects the TH1-type cytokines referred to as interferon gamma, IL2, and IL12, as well as the TH2-type cytokines referred to as IL4, 6, and 10.

Thus, although MCF-7, but not MDA-MD-231, cells were stimulated by this mitogen in the corncob bedding extract, it is unlikely that the ER is directly involved in this response.
Extracts from fresh corn kernels or cob also contained this mitogenic activity when assayed in MCF-7 cells (Figure 10A) and the mitogen fractionated on Spice C18 cartridges in a manner indistinguishable (Figure 10B) from that isolated from ground corncob bedding (Figure 5B).
