    Abstract  Hepatocyte growth factor activator inhibitor type 1 (HAI-1)/spint-1 is a membrane-bound protease inhibitor that is thought to regulate the activities of hepatocyte growth factor activator, matriptase, hepsin, and prostasin. In this study, we show that the membrane form of HAI-1...

    Mice heterozygous for the N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea-induced Waved-5 (Wa5) mutation, isolated in a screen for dominant, visible mutations, exhibit a wavy coat similar to mice homozygous for the recessive Tgfawa1 or Egfrwa2 alleles. In this study, we show that Wa5 is a new allele of Egfr (EgfrWa5)...

  • High doses of dietary zinc induce cytokines, chemokines, and apoptosis in reproductive tissues during regression. Sundaresan, N. R.; Anish, D.; Sastry, K. V. H.; Saxena, V. K.; Nagarajan, K.; Subramani, J.; Leo, M. D. M.; Shit, N.; Mohan, J.; Saxena, M.; Ahmed, K. A. // Cell & Tissue Research;Jun2008, Vol. 332 Issue 3, p543 

    In chickens, high levels of dietary zinc cause molting, and the reproductive system undergoes complete remodeling concomitant to feather replacement. In the present study, the expression profiles of cytokines and chemokines were investigated in the ovary and oviduct of control hens and of hens...

  • Comparison of LPS-stimulated release of cytokines in punch versus transwell tissue culture systems of human gestational membranes. Miller, Mark F.; Loch-Caruso, Rita // Reproductive Biology & Endocrinology;2010, Vol. 8, p121 

    Background: Cytokine signaling within the amnionic, chorionic and decidual extraplacental gestational membranes plays an important role in membrane rupture and the timing of birth. The predominant in vitro explant culture system for evaluating cytokine induction in human gestational membranes...

  • Essential role of ICAM-1/LFA-1 interaction in synergistic effect of IL-18 and IL-12 on IFN-γ production in human PBMC. Yoshida, Atsushi; Kohka Takahashi, Hideo; Iwagaki, Hiromi; Yoshino, Tadashi; Morichika, Toshihiko; Yokoyama, Minori; Itoh, Hideyuki; Mori, Shuji; Akagi, Tadaatsu; Nishibori, Masahiro; Tanaka, Noriaki // Naunyn-Schmiedeberg's Archives of Pharmacology;Mar2002, Vol. 365 Issue 3, p181 

    IL-18 (0–100 ng/ml) specifically upregulated ICAM-1 expression on monocytes in human PBMC as demonstrated in our previous study. In the present study, we examined whether the synergistic upregulation of ICAM-1 occurred after the stimulation with the combination of IL-18 and IL-12 and...

    The protective role of hemeoxygenase-1 (HO-1) in various inflammatory conditions is mediated in part by its products, carbon monoxide (CO) and biliverdin. Here we investigated a therapeutic role for CO and CO-primed cells in acute pancreatitis (AP). In a mouse model of AP, treatment with...

    The novel protein kinase C (PKC) isoform, PKCθ, is expressed in a relatively selective manner in T lymphocytes (and muscle). Recent analysis of this PKC isotype in T cells and the characterization of PKCθ-deficient mice revealed important clues about its function and regulation. PKCθ...
