    The chemokine CX3C-L/FKN is expressed in both soluble and transmembrane/mucin hybrid forms, thus combining chemoattractant functions together with receptor/adhesion molecule properties. In contrast to other chemokine receptors, CX3C-R is expressed not only on lymphoid cell populations, but also...

    Infiltrating leukocytes are thought to contribute to the progression of kidney disease. Locally produced chemokines guide circulating leukocytes into the kidney, which renders therapeutic blockade of respective chemokine receptors on the leukocyte surface as potential targets for the inhibition...

    The immunosuppressive effect of chronic renal failure is correlated with an impaired proliferation of peripheral blood leukocytes in vitro. This is mainly due to an impaired function of the accessory cells rather than the T cells. Here we tried to define a missing accessory signal for T cell...

    The article analyzes the role of chemokines in the initiation and progression of renal disease. Macrophages play an important role not in glomerular but also in tubular and interstitial renal diseases. The infiltrating and resident macrophages release mediators of inflammation and cytokines in...

    Renal disease results from a variety of insults, but whatever its genesis, ongoing inflammation will drive progressive fibrotic disease. Dendritic cells link innate and adaptive immunity by presenting antigens, but they act also in an antigen-independent manner. While systemic dendritic cells...

    Lymphocytes are intrinsically mobile and circulate continuously between the blood and secondary lymphoid tissues. When naive lymphocytes first enter lymph nodes and Peyer's patches, they adhere to and migrate across specific blood vessels known as high endothelial venules (HEVs). The local...
