IRAK-4 kinase activity-dependent and -independent regulation of lipopolysaccharide-inducible genes.
We examined the LPS-induced response in IRAK-4 KD mice in more detail. We show that IRAK-4 kinase activity is required for certain aspects of TLR-mediated signaling but not for others. We found that IRAK-4 KD cells displayed reduced JNK and p38 signaling, while NF-kappaB was activated to a normal le...
Isolation, cultivation and phenotypic characterization of rat thymic dendritic cells.
I and class II molecules as well as CD45. Most TDC were LFA-1 (CD11a)+, CD18+, ICAM-1 (CD54)+ and CD53 (OX- 44)+, but only certain subsets expressed CD11b and thymocyte markers Thy1, CD2, CD4 and CD8. Upregulation in the expression of almost all the markers was observed after cultivation of TDC. In...
Studies on the biological effects of ozone: 5. Evaluation of immunological parameters and tolerability in normal volunteers receiving ambula...
We have undertaken an investigation in normal rabbits and in normal volunteers aiming to evaluate eventual changes of some cytokine levels in plasma as well as of immunological parameters such as the Mx protein, neopterin, beta 2-microglobulin and of some acute-phase proteins after single or repeate...
Papillomavirus type 16 oncogenes downregulate expression of interferon-responsive genes and upregulate proliferation-associated and NF-kappa...
We used cDNA microarrays to examine global alterations in gene expression in differentiating cervical keratinocytes after infection with retroviruses encoding HPV type 16 (HPV-16) E6 and E7. Expression of 80 cellular genes (approximately 4% of the genes on the array) was altered reproducibly by E6 a...
Theoretical accounts of Gulf War Syndrome: from environmental toxins to psychoneuroimmunology and neurodegeneration.
We also present evidence that the pattern of symptoms produced by the pro-inflammatory cytokines reflects a shift in immune system functioning towards a (T-helper-1) Th1 profile. This position contrasts with other immunological accounts of GWS that suggest that the immune system demonstrates a shift...
Amelogenins promote an alternatively activated macrophage phenotype in vitro
Amelogenins are extracellular matrix proteins used for the topical treatment of chronically inflamed tissues. The influence of amelogenins on human monocyte-derived macrophages was studied by measuring the concentrations of cytokines in culture supernatants. The interactions of cells and protein aggr...

[Expression of nuclear factor-κB and its regulated cytokines in dendritic cells in patients with chronic severe hepatitis B and its clinical...
To investigate the correlation of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) level and its regulated cytokines in monocyte-derived dendritic cells (MoDC) with illness severity and prognosis in patients with chronic severe hepatitis B (CSHB). Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were isolated by Ficoll density...
Biological responses in low-dose range
Out of the wealth of biological responses a few have been selected for discussion, namely, those which point to sensitive cellular reactions with possible consequences, or, those which might be promising in occupational medicine as indicators of a possible burden to persons, radiological or nuclear w...
