Commensal bacteria and expression of two major intestinal chemokines, TECK/CCL25 and MEC/CCL28, and their receptorsDownload
Background CCL25/TECK and CCL28/MEC are CC chemokines primarily expressed in thymic dendritic cells and mucosal epithelial cells. Their receptors, CCR9 and CCR10, are mainly expressed on T and B lymphocytes. In human, mouse, pig and sheep CCL25 and CCL28 play an important role in the segregation...
Comparative transcriptomic analysis of rectal tissue from beef steers revealed reduced host immunity in Escherichia coli O157:H7 super-sheddersDownload
Super-shedder cattle are a major disseminator of E. coli O157:H7 into the environment, and the terminal rectum has been proposed as the primary E. coli O157:H7 colonization site. This study aimed to identify host factors that are associated with the super-shedding process by comparing...
Effect of providing a formula supplemented with long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids on immunity in full term neonatesDownload
To determine the effect of feeding formula containing long-chain PUFA (LCP) on immune function, healthy term infants were randomised at age 2 weeks to either a standard term formula (Formula; n 14) or the same formula supplemented with the LCP 20 : 4n-6 and 22 : 6n-3 (Formula+LCP; n 16)....
Lymphocytes in a hypotonic environment: a flow cytometric study
Background: The MS4A gene family in humans includes CD20 (MS4A1), FcRb (MS4A2), Htm4 (MS4A3), and at least 13 other syntenic genes encoding membrane proteins, most having characteristic tetraspanning topology. Expression of MS4A genes is variable in tissues throughout the body; however, several...
Specific Activation of the Na+/H+ exchanger gene during neuronal differentiation of embryonal carcinoma cellsDownload
We examined the regulation of the NaGraphic/HGraphic exchanger gene during differentiation of the P19 mouse embryonal carcinoma cells. Treatment of P19 cells with retinoic acid induces the development of neurons, astroglia, and microglia cells. Upon retinoic acid-induced differentiation of P19...
Sialic acid terminates glycans of glycoproteins and glycolipids that play numerous biological roles in health and disease. Although genetic tools are available for interrogating the effects of decreased or abolished sialoside expression in mice, pharmacological inhibition of the sialyltransferase...
