Teleosts rely on innate immunity to protect themselves from pathogens. Colony stimulating factor-1 (CSF-1) and its cognate receptor CSF-1R control survival, proliferation, differentiation and function of macrophages. Recently, a novel soluble form of CSF-1R (sCSF-1R) was identified in goldfish....
Fungal pathogens are recognized by Dectin-1, a pattern recognition receptor expressed on mammalian innate immune cells. Dectin-1 detects β-glucans, which are polymers of glucose that are a main component of the fungal cell wall. While purified, soluble β-glucans have been used in the clinic as...
Commercial naphthenic acids and the organic fraction of oil sands process water downregulate pro-inflammatory gene expression and macrophage antimicrobial responses
Commercial naphthenic acids and the organic fraction of oil sands process water induce different effects on pro-inflammatory gene expression and macrophage phagocytosis in mice
Effects of macrophages and noggin suppression on the BMP-2-induced osteogenesis of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cellsDownload
The osteogenic effects of bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) on human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are less profound than expected as compared with rodent cells, and supraphysiological dose of BMP-2 is required to achieve desired clinical outcome. The mechanism for this phenomenon is unclear....
Examination of the Regulation of Phosphorylation Events in Macrophage Adhesion and Response to ZymosanDownload
Macrophages play a central role in innate immunity, most notably in tissue repair, phagocytosis of dead or infected cells, secretion of chemokine and cytokines at sites of infection, as well as the activation of other immune cells. These roles are highly dependent on their capacity to migrate...
Inhalable nanoparticles in lung cancer treatment; efficacy, safety, distribution and nanoparticle-macrophage interactionsDownload
In 2002, lung cancer was responsible for 17.6% of the total worldwide deaths from cancer. Beyond the three traditional forms of cancer treatment, surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy, targeted drug delivery therapy has shown to be a potential treatment option. The design of a successful...
The two types of rejection identified in the Banff histopathologic diagnosis are T cell-mediated rejection (TCMR) and antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR). TCMR is most common early post-transplant while ABMR is the main cause of late graft loss. Kidney transplant TCMR is diagnosed histologically...
