  1. Functional characterization of two novel non-synonymous alterations in CD46 and a Q950H change in factor H found in atypical hemolytic uremi...

    Molecular Immunology 65(2):367 (2015) PMID 25733390

    We also identified two novel heterozygous non-synonymous CD46 alterations (p.E142Q and p.G259V). Presence of G259V caused decreased expression of the recombinant mutant CD46 compared to wild type (WT). Western blot analysis showed that the majority of the expressed G259V protein was in the precursor...
  2. Therapeutic targets for olive pollen allergy defined by gene markers modulated by Ole e 1-derived peptides.

    Molecular Immunology 64(2):252 (2015) PMID 25553522

    Two regions of Ole e 1, the major olive-pollen allergen, have been characterized as T-cell epitopes, one as immunodominant region (aa91-130) and the other, as mainly recognized by non-allergic subjects (aa10-31). This report tries to characterize the specific relevance of these epitopes in the aller...
  3. Characterization of a novel anti-lipopolysaccharide factor isoform (SpALF5) in mud crab, Scylla paramamosain.

    Molecular Immunology 64(2):262 (2015) PMID 25553523

    Anti-lipopolysaccharide factors (ALFs), the potential antimicrobial peptides that bind and neutralize lipopolysaccharide (LPS), are common effectors of innate immunity in crustaceans. In this study, a novel isoform of ALFs (SpALF5) was isolated from the hemocytes of mud crab Scylla paramamosain. The...
  4. Polyclonal, newly derived T cells with low expression of inhibitory molecule PD-1 in tonsils define the phenotype of lymphocytes in children...

    Molecular Immunology 65(1):139 (2015) PMID 25656804

    We tested whether specific lymphocyte subsets recruited from blood to human tonsils participate in PFAPA pathogenesis. Paired tonsils/peripheral blood (PB) samples were investigated (a) from children with PFAPA that successfully resolved after tonsillectomy (n=10) (b) from children with obstructive...
  5. Extracellular, but not intracellular HMGB1, facilitates self-DNA induced macrophage activation via promoting DNA accumulation in endosomes a...

    Molecular Immunology 65(1):177 (2015) PMID 25660970

    We previously reported that a sort of self-DNA, activated lymphocyte-derived DNA (ALD-DNA) could potentially induce macrophage activation, which contributes to the pathogenesis of murine lupus nephritis. However, the mechanism underlying the self-DNA recognition needs to be further elucidated. Serum...
  6. MALT1 induced immune response is governed by miR-2909 RNomics.

    Molecular Immunology 64(1):210 (2015) PMID 25500259

    Our results reported here provide evidence for the first time to support the view that MALT1 exerts its effect upon immune response involving genes coding for retinoic acid-inducible gene 1 (RIG1); interferon-β (IFN-β); apo-lipoprotein B mRNA-editing, enzyme-catalytic, polypeptide-like 3G (APOBEC3G)...
  7. In vivo tracking and immunological properties of pulsed porcine monocyte-derived dendritic cells.

    Molecular Immunology 63(2):343 (2015) PMID 25282042

    Cellular therapies using immune cells and in particular dendritic cells (DCs) are being increasingly applied in clinical trials and vaccines. Their success partially depends on accurate delivery of cells to target organs or migration to lymph nodes. Delivery and subsequent migration of cells to regi...
  8. Multiple IgE recognition on the major allergen of the Parietaria pollen Par j 2.

    Molecular Immunology 63(2):412 (2015) PMID 25284812

    Our results showed that Pj-allergic patients display a heterogeneous pattern of IgE binding to the different recombinant fragments, and that patients reacted simultaneously against several protein domains spread all the over the molecule, even in fragments which do not contain structural features re...
  9. Mast cells in renal inflammation and fibrosis: lessons learnt from animal studies.

    Molecular Immunology 63(1):86 (2015) PMID 24793464

    Mast cells are hematopoietic cells involved in inflammation and immunity and have been recognized also as important effector cells in kidney inflammation. In humans, only a few mast cells reside in kidneys constitutively but in progressive renal diseases their numbers increase substantially represen...
  10. Herpesvirus entry mediator (HVEM) attenuates signals mediated by the lymphotoxin β receptor (LTβR) in human cells stimulated by the shared l...

    Molecular Immunology 62(1):96 (2014) PMID 24980868 PMCID PMC4157106

    We used cell lines with different relative expression of HVEM and LTβR to show that LIGHT-induced signals mediated by these receptors were associated with altered TRAF2 stability and RelA nuclear translocation. Production of the inflammatory chemokine CXCL10 was primarily mediated by LTβR. Higher ex...
