It is not clear whether TREM-2 (the "triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 2") is expressed in fibroblast-like synovial cells (FLSs). In this study, we aimed to determine the expression of TREM-2 in rheumatoid arthritis (RA)-FLSs and explore whether and how TREM-2 modulates the function of RA-FLSs.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Clinical and experimental rheumatology
Triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 1 (TREM-1)-expressing intestinal macrophages are significantly increased in the colons of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We focused here...
Hyperoxia-induced injury to the developing lung, impaired alveolarization and dysregulated vascularization are critical factors in the pathogenesis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD); however, mechan...
In response to tissue injury, fibroblasts migrate into the wound, where they undergo proliferation and differentiation. The persistence of these differentiated fibroblasts (myofibroblasts) is associat...
Dendrobii Caulis (DC), named 'Shihu' in Chinese, is a precious herb in traditional Chinese medicine. It is widely used to nourish stomach, enhance body fluid production, tonify "Yin" and reduce heat. ...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by joint tissue inflammation. Cyanidin-3-glucoside (C3G) is a major component in the flavonoid family and has shown anti-inflamm...
Etiopathology of periodontitis is complex and various risk factors are known : - Bacterial factors: major risk factor. Although the presence of periodontopathogen bacteria is nece...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a protein called TREM-1 can be used to differentiate viral and bacterial pneumonias in children who are on ventilator support. We propose ...
Graves' orbitopathy (GO) affects about 50% of patients with Graves' disease (GD), and some cannot be cured by current treatments. Orbital fibroblasts involves in the pathogenesis of GO by ...
Dexmedetomidine, was reported to prevent postoperative delirium in elderly patients following its use in intensive care units. Possible mechanisms included improved quality of sleep and an...
Specific aim To examine the effect of catecholamines on the modulation of intermittent hypoxia induced TNF- in human monocytes from both healthy subjects and OSA patients (2). To map th...
A fibroblast growth factor that preferentially activates FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR 4. It was initially identified as an androgen-induced growth factor and plays a role in regulating growth of human BREAST NEOPLASMS and PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS.
A fibroblast growth factor receptor that is found in two isoforms. One receptor isoform is found in the MESENCHYME and is activated by FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 2. A second isoform of fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 is found mainly in EPITHELIAL CELLS and is activated by FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 7 and FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 10. Mutation of the gene for fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 can result in APERT SYNDROME.
The most divergent of the known fibroblast growth factor receptors. It does not contain an intracellular TYROSINE KINASE domain and has been shown to interact with FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 2. Fibroblast growth factor receptor 5 is found primarily in skeletal tissue.
A fibroblast growth factor receptor with specificity for FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTORS; HEPARAN SULFATE PROTEOGLYCAN; and NEURONAL CELL ADHESION MOLECULES. Several variants of the receptor exist due to multiple ALTERNATIVE SPLICING of its mRNA. Fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 is a tyrosine kinase that transmits signals through the MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM.
A fibroblast growth factor that was initially identified based on its sequence similarity to FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 4. It is found in MYOBLASTS and plays an important role in MUSCLE DEVELOPMENT.
Cytokine Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF)
TNF is a compound that is classified as a cytokine which plays a central role in the cellular mechanisms of apoptosis or cell death. However, there are a number of different kinds of TNF, just under twenty, but the family of molecules have very similar a...
