found at the site of injury.
In the gut, IgA originates mainly from local tissue immunocytes

in the mammary gland and its secretions.
It is increasingly recognized that fat is not merely an energy store, but that adipocytes may directly produce immunomodulatory factors, or adipose tissue may harbor activated immunocytes
Proinflammatory cytokines (eg, TNF-[alpha], IL-6) released by HIV-infected immunocytes
, or by the adipocytes themselves when exposed to these HIV-infected cells, may lead to increased apoptosis (programmed cell death).
