Summary of "A Marine Carotenoid, Fucoxanthin, Induces Regulatory T Cells and Inhibits Th17 Cell Differentiation in Vitro."

Fucoxanthin is a non-provitamin A carotenoid contained in brown seaweeds. We found that it suppressed interleukin-17 secretion from CD4(+) T cells under IL-17-producing T (Th17) cell development conditions. By evaluating T cell differentiation in vitro, fucoxanthin and its metabolite fucoxanthinol inhibited T cell differentiation into Th17 cells. This suggests that fucoxanthin can improve inflammatory diseases due to Th17 cells.

Opposite Functions of STAT3 and Smad3 in Regulating Tiam1 Expression in Th17 cells.

We recently showed that Tiam1 expression is induced in pro-inflammatory T helper 17 (Th17) cells differentiated with interleukin (IL)-6 and TGF-β1, and together with Rac1 promote Th17 cell developmen...

β-catenin and PI3Kδ inhibition expands precursor Th17 cells with heightened stemness and antitumor activity.

ICOS costimulation generates Th17 cells with durable memory responses to tumor. Herein, we found that ICOS induces PI3K/p110δ/Akt and Wnt/β-catenin pathways in Th17 cells. Coinhibiting PI3Kδ and β...

CD73 is expressed by inflammatory Th17 cells in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis but does not limit differentiation or pathogenesis.

CD73 works together with CD39 to convert extracellular ATP to immunoregulatory adenosine, thus inhibiting inflammation. TGFβ-mediated CD73 expression on 'regulatory' Th17 cells limits their ability t...

ANTIOXIDANT CAPACITIES OF FUCOXANTHIN-PRODUCING ALGAE AS INFLUENCED BY THEIR CAROTENOID AND PHENOLIC CONTENTS.

Natural antioxidants from sustainable sources are favoured to accommodate worldwide antioxidant demand. In addition to bioprospecting for natural and sustainable antioxidant sources, this study aimed ...

The transcriptional coactivator TAZ regulates reciprocal differentiation of TH17 cells and Treg cells.

An imbalance in the lineages of immunosuppressive regulatory T cells (Treg cells) and the inflammatory TH17 subset of helper T cells leads to the development of autoimmune and/or inflammatory disease....

The Effects of Nanocurcumin on Serum miRNA and Th17 Cells Development Factors in Ankylosing Spondylitis Patients

Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic autoimmune disease in which T cells associated with the disorder. The disease often affects the spine and hip bones. Inflammation involved in the area o...

Comparison of Carotenoid Bioavailability From Fresh Papaya, Tomato and Carrot

The goal of this study is to determine if papaya fruits are an exceptionally good food source for carotenoids in humans, particularly when compared more common carotenoid sources like carr...

The Long-term Effect of Marine Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation in Renal Transplantation

This is a long-term intervention study on the effects of marine n-3 PUFAs in renal transplantation. Our hypothesis is that patients treated with marine n-3 PUFA supplementation will have l...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

CD4-positive T cells that inhibit immunopathology or autoimmune disease in vivo. They inhibit the immune response by influencing the activity of other cell types. Regulatory T-cells include naturally occurring CD4+CD25+ cells, IL-10 secreting Tr1 cells, and Th3 cells.

Subset of helper-effector T-lymphocytes which synthesize and secrete IL-17, IL-17F, and IL-22. These cytokines are involved in host defenses and tissue inflammation in autoimmune diseases.

A free radical gas produced endogenously by a variety of mammalian cells, synthesized from ARGININE by NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE. Nitric oxide is one of the ENDOTHELIUM-DEPENDENT RELAXING FACTORS released by the vascular endothelium and mediates VASODILATION. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, induces disaggregation of aggregated platelets, and inhibits platelet adhesion to the vascular endothelium. Nitric oxide activates cytosolic GUANYLATE CYCLASE and thus elevates intracellular levels of CYCLIC GMP.

A division of predominantly marine EUKARYOTA, commonly known as brown algae, having CHROMATOPHORES containing carotenoid PIGMENTS, BIOLOGICAL. ALGINATES and phlorotannins occur widely in all major orders. They are considered the most highly evolved algae because of their well-developed multicellular organization and structural complexity.
