Eos is one kind of immunocyte. The activation of Eos can release an array of cytotoxic granule cationic proteins that are capable of inducing tissue damage and dysfunction.[sup][32] We speculated that the genotype distribution difference of Eos might imply the potential immune effect during the disease course of arteritis.
Regulatory factors include transcription factors, signaling molecules, and signal transduction mediators and modulators; they can be roughly divided between those that control immunocyte development and those that control differentiated immune function.
