Summary of "Peanut lipids display potential adjuvanticity by triggering a pro-inflammatory response in human keratinocytes."

Currently, the earliest cellular and molecular signals driving allergic sensitization to peanuts are not fully understood, even though peanut allergens have been studied extensively. Meanwhile, lipids contained within allergen sources are emerging as players in the pathogenesis of allergies. Exposure of infants to peanut oil-containing lotions was described as a risk factor for the development of peanut allergy (1). This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The visual display of data in a man-machine system. An example is when data is called from the computer and transmitted to a CATHODE RAY TUBE DISPLAY or LIQUID CRYSTAL display.

The period of time following the triggering of an ACTION POTENTIAL when the CELL MEMBRANE has changed to an unexcitable state and is gradually restored to the resting (excitable) state. During the absolute refractory period no other stimulus can trigger a response. This is followed by the relative refractory period during which the cell gradually becomes more excitable and the stronger impulse that is required to illicit a response gradually lessens to that required during the resting state.

An approximately 230 amino acid membrane glycoprotein characterized by an IMMUNOGLOBULIN V-SET DOMAIN in its N-terminal half. It is expressed by MONOCYTES and NEUTROPHILS in response to INFLAMMATION related to bacterial and fungal infections. It triggers the release of pro-inflammatory CHEMOKINES; CYTOKINES, and expression of cell activation markers and is a critical regulator of SEPTIC SHOCK.

Exuberant inflammatory response towards previously undiagnosed or incubating opportunistic pathogens. It is frequently seen in AIDS patients following HAART.

A member of the CXC chemokine family that plays a role in the regulation of the acute inflammatory response. It is secreted by variety of cell types and induces CHEMOTAXIS of NEUTROPHILS and other inflammatory cells.
