Regarding the cellular source of the observed IL-33-dependent type 2 cytokines (Figure 3A,B,F), many cells in the lung, including Th2 cells, macrophages, mast cells, and innate lymphoid cells type 2 (ILC2), have the capacity to release type 2 cytokines after IL-33 stimulation (Chang et al.

Table 1 indicates that after 7 days of daily administration of this polysaccharide, the total number of non-NK lymphoid cells in the bone marrow were, like NK cells, decreased significantly (p < 0.004), to only one-third control numbers, while all other hemopoietic cell lineages, in both the bone marrow and the spleen of these 7-day-treated mice, remained unchanged relative to control.
