Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) is caused by activated platelets. The plasma C-type lectin-like receptor 2 (CLEC2) levels in 58 patients with TMA were examined and compared with those in healthy volunteers and other diseases.

This study aimed to determine whether plasma soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) could serve as an activity biomarker in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients. suPAR levels ...
In the brain, various neurotransmitters such as noradrenaline and GABA regulate peripheral sympathetic functions. Previously, it has been reported that both β-adrenoceptor activation and GABA recepto...
Mixed cryobulinemia (MC) is the most common chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV)-associated extrahepatic manifestation. C-type lectin 18 (CLEC18) is a novel secretory lectin that is abundantly expressed in...
Angiopoietin-1 (Agpt-1) and Agpt-2 are cytokine regulators of vascular endothelial integrity. Elevated plasma Agpt-2 levels and ratios of Agpt-2:Agpt-1 are associated with adverse outcomes in adult tr...
Cost- and time-effective markers of Alzheimer's disease (AD), reliable and feasible at the population level are urgently needed. Soluble amyloid-β protein precursor β (sAβPPβ) in plasma has attrac...
To observe the changes of plasma hepatocyte growth factor and soluble receptor s-Met levels in patients with sepsis, and to explore its clinical significance.
This study includes comatose survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest treated with 24 hours or 48 hours of targeted temperature management. The overall aim is to evaluate the importanc...
In critically ill patients, the soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) level is significantly increased. suPAR is an independent prognostic marker, and the change over ti...
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of antagonising GIP after a meal on plasma levels of glucagon. 10 participants are going through four experimental days each, where they...
High levels of mannose-binding lectin (MBL), an activator of a part of the immune system called the complement system, have been associated with increased mortality and risk of early signs...
An interleukin-1 receptor subtype that competes with the INTERLEUKIN-1 RECEPTOR TYPE I for binding to INTERLEUKIN-1ALPHA and INTERLEUKIN-1BETA. The interleukin-1 type II receptor appears to lack signal transduction capability. Therefore it may act as a "decoy" receptor that modulates the activity of its ligands. Both membrane-bound and soluble forms of the receptor have been identified.
An angiotensin receptor subtype that is expressed at high levels in fetal tissues. Many effects of the angiotensin type 2 receptor such as VASODILATION and sodium loss are the opposite of that of the ANGIOTENSIN TYPE 1 RECEPTOR.
A subclass of NK cell lectin-like receptors that associates with a variety of members of NK CELL LECTIN-LIKE RECEPTOR SUBFAMILY C to form heterodimeric receptors for HLA-E antigen.
A subclass of NK cell lectin-like receptors that associates with members of NK CELL LECTIN-LIKE RECEPTOR SUBFAMILY D to form heterodimeric receptors for HLA-E antigen.
A C-type lectin that is a cell surface receptor for ASIALOGLYCOPROTEINS. It is found primarily in the LIVER where it mediates the endocytosis of serum glycoproteins.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
