Leishmania major is a parasite that resides and replicates in macrophages. We previously showed that the parasite enhanced CD40-induced Raf-MEK-ERK signaling but inhibited PI3K-MKK-p38MAPK signaling to proleishmanial effects. As Raf and PI3K have a Ras-binding domain but exert opposite effects

The impact of isoosmolar versus low-osmolar contrast media (CM) administration on contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) and extended renal dysfunction (ERD) is unclear. We retrospectively examined incidences of CI-AKI and ERD in patients who received iodixanol (isoosmolar) versus iohexol (low-osmolar)

Fractional flow reserve (FFR) measurements accurately assess functional relevance in intermediate grade coronary lesions. A significant relationship between hemodynamic stenosis severity and optical coherence tomography (OCT)-derived intraluminal dimensions has recently been demonstrated. However, morphologic thresholds to identify significant stenoses are

SR-A mediated macrophage adhesion to modified ECM proteins in a process that involves physical attachment of SR-A to modified ECM and activation of Lyn-PI3K and PLA2-12/15-lipoxygenase signaling pathways. Structurally, SR-A-mediated cell adhesion requires a 6-aa membrane-proximal cytoplasmic motif. However, the
