Summary of "Ouabain Decreases Regulatory T Cell Number in Mice by Reducing IL-2 Secretion."

Ouabain (OUA) is a cardiotonic glycoside originally extracted from African plants. It has also been described as an endogenous component in mammals, being released in stress situations mainly by the adrenal gland. OUA has been reported to be capable of inhibiting mitogen-induced lymphocyte proliferation and also affects B and T lymphocytes.

Ouabain Accelerates Collective Cell Migration Through a cSrc and ERK1/2 Sensitive Metalloproteinase Activity.

Studies made in the Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) epithelial cell line showed that ouabain regulates cell adhesion and cell-adhesion-related biological processes, such as migration. Here, we demons...

Defective exocytosis and processing of insulin in a cystic fibrosis mouse model.

Cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD) is a common complication for patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), a disease caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR)...

Regulatory B1a cells suppress melanoma tumor immunity via IL-10 production and inhibiting Th1 cytokine production in tumor-infiltrating CD8 T cells.

In tumor immunity, the participation of IL-10-producing regulatory B cells (Bregs), which play an important role in suppressing immune responses, is unclear. In this study, we demonstrated an increase...

Interleukin-22 accelerates thymus regeneration via Stat3/Mcl-1 and decreases chronic graft-versus-host disease in mice after allotransplants.

High-dose chemotherapy and/or radiation given before an allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation severely damage thymic epithelial cells (TECs) resulting in poor posttransplant immune recovery. I...

Ouabain Modulates the Adherens Junction in Renal Epithelial Cells.

Ouabain, a well-known plant-derived toxin, is also a hormone found in mammals at nanomolar levels that binds to a site located in the a-subunit of Na⁺,K⁺-ATPase. Our main goal was to understand th...

The Effect of an Acute Increase in Plasma IL-6 on Glucose Tolerance When a Meal is Administered Intraduodenally

The aim of the study is to investigate and clarify whether the effect of IL-6 on glucose tolerance and insulin secretion are secondary to the changes in gastric emptying. The literature p...

Use of Erythropoietin to Expand Regulatory T Cells in Autoimmune Liver Disease

This study evaluates the effect of erythropoietin on the number and function of regulatory T cells in adults with autoimmune hepatitis. Participants will receive a single dose of erythropo...

Preop Digifab in CABG to Reduce Ouabain Levels and Prevent AKI

Acute kidney injury (AKI) occurs in up to 30% of patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, and often requires patients to go on dialysis. In patients needing dialysi...

Immune Biomarkers of Residual Beta-cell Mass in Type 1 Diabetes

There is currently no imaging technique allowing to directly visualize and measure pancreatic beta-cell mass. Consequently, the best parameter to estimate this mass is the insulin (and its...

A Study to Evaluate the Effect of Ticagrelor in Reducing the Number of Days With Pain in Patients With Sickle Cell Disease

The purpose of this study is to determine whether ticagrelor is effective in reducing the number of days of pain, intensity of pain, and reducing the use of analgesics due to sickle cell d...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The secretion of histamine from mast cell and basophil granules by exocytosis. This can be initiated by a number of factors, all of which involve binding of IgE, cross-linked by antigen, to the mast cell or basophil's Fc receptors. Once released, histamine binds to a number of different target cell receptors and exerts a wide variety of effects.

A number of different cardioactive glycosides obtained from Strophanthus species. OUABAIN is from S. gratus and CYMARINE from S. kombe. They are used like the digitalis glycosides.

Mice homozygous for the mutant autosomal recessive gene "scid" which is located on the centromeric end of chromosome 16. These mice lack mature, functional lymphocytes and are thus highly susceptible to lethal opportunistic infections if not chronically treated with antibiotics. The lack of B- and T-cell immunity resembles severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) syndrome in human infants. SCID mice are useful as animal models since they are receptive to implantation of a human immune system producing SCID-human (SCID-hu) hematochimeric mice.

A strain of ENCEPHALOMYOCARDITIS VIRUS, a species of CARDIOVIRUS, usually causing an inapparent intestinal infection in mice. A small number of mice may show signs of flaccid paralysis.

A myogenic regulatory factor that controls myogenesis. Myogenin is induced during differentiation of every skeletal muscle cell line that has been investigated, in contrast to the other myogenic regulatory factors that only appear in certain cell types.
