Okito Hashimoto et al.
Brain, behavior, and immunity, 90, 319-331 (2020-09-21)
Allergic dermatitis (AD), associated with pruritus and itchiness, is one of the major stressful conditions early in life. AD also influences the incidence of neuropsychiatric disorders and developmental disorders through neuro-immune interactions. To the best of our knowledge, there is
Igor A Schepetkin et al.
International immunopharmacology, 8(10), 1455-1466 (2008-07-04)
Opuntia polyacantha (prickly pear cactus) has been used extensively for its nutritional properties; however, less is known regarding medicinal properties of Opuntia tissues. In the present study, we extracted polysaccharides from O. polyacantha and used size-exclusion chromatography to fractionate the

Nature communications, 10(1), 2091-2091 (2019-05-09)
Caspase-1 activated in inflammasomes triggers a programmed necrosis called pyroptosis, which is mediated by gasdermin D (GSDMD). However, GSDMD-deficient cells are still susceptible to caspase-1-mediated cell death. Therefore, here, we investigate the mechanism of caspase-1-initiated cell death in GSDMD-deficient cells.

Waleed Al Abdulmonem et al.
Journal of reproductive immunology, 141, 103152-103152 (2020-06-11)
During first trimester of human pregnancy, the maternal system develops immunity against infection and to provide protection of allogeneic foetus from abortion. This study was undertaken to determine the role of trophoblast specific CD74 isoforms in first trimester trophoblast derived
Tao Ni et al.
Science advances, 6(5), eaax8286-eaax8286 (2020-02-18)
Perforin-2 (MPEG1) is thought to enable the killing of invading microbes engulfed by macrophages and other phagocytes, forming pores in their membranes. Loss of perforin-2 renders individual phagocytes and whole organisms significantly more susceptible to bacterial pathogens. Here, we reveal
Taekyoung Kwak et al.
Cell reports, 33(13), 108571-108571 (2020-12-31)
Here, we report that functional heterogeneity of macrophages in cancer could be determined by the nature of their precursors: monocytes (Mons) and monocytic myeloid-derived suppressor cells (M-MDSCs). Macrophages that are differentiated from M-MDSCs, but not from Mons, are immune suppressive
Arjen van den Berg et al.
Respiratory research, 6, 111-111 (2005-09-28)
The adenoviral protein E1A has been proposed to play a role in the pathophysiology of COPD, in particular by increasing IL-8 gene transcription of lung epithelial cells in response to cigarette smoke-constituents such as LPS. As IL-8 production is also
Anup Dey et al.
The EMBO journal, 38(7) (2019-03-08)
BRD4 is a BET family protein that binds acetylated histones and regulates transcription. BET/BRD4 inhibitors block blood cancer growth and inflammation and serve as a new therapeutic strategy. However, the biological role of BRD4 in normal hematopoiesis and inflammation is
Rob C M de Jong et al.
PloS one, 12(10), e0185820-e0185820 (2017-10-11)
Genetic P300/CBP-associated factor (PCAF) variation affects restenosis-risk in patients. PCAF has lysine acetyltransferase activity and promotes nuclear factor kappa-beta (NFκB)-mediated inflammation, which drives post-interventional intimal hyperplasia development. We studied the contributing role of PCAF in post-interventional intimal hyperplasia. PCAF contribution
Jonathan J Hansen et al.
Inflammatory bowel diseases, 15(6), 890-899 (2009-01-13)
While others have described gene expression patterns in humans with inflammatory bowel diseases and animals with chemically induced colitis, a genome-wide comparison of gene expression in genetically susceptible animals that develop spontaneous colitis has not been reported. We used microarray
Minhui Kim et al.
Microorganisms, 9(1) (2021-01-23)
Leuconostoc lactis SBC001, isolated from chive, produces glucansucrase and synthesizes oligosaccharides through its enzymatic activity. This study was conducted to optimize oligosaccharide production using response surface methodology, analyze the structure of purified oligosaccharides, and investigate the prebiotic effect on 24
