Survivin and autoimmunity; the ins and outs.

Survivin and autoimmunity; the ins and outs. Immunol Lett. 2017 Nov 16;: Authors: Ebrahimiyan H, Aslani S, Rezaei N, Jamshidi A, Mahmoudi M Abstract Autoimmunity is a status that immune mechanisms react against self-structure. The immune mechanisms, including cellular and molecular elements have been developed to immune body against foreign invades. Multiple factors such as genetic and epigenetic background, hormonal status, microbiome, and other factors can cause launching the autoreactive responses, in which the immune tolerance breaks and immune mechanisms are against self-antigens. Apoptosis is one of the important mechanisms in maintaining the tolerance and eliminating the autoreactive lymphocyte clones. Due to survivin roles in apoptosis and proliferation, numerous researches have been paying attention to survivin expression and function in autoreactive lymphocytes and tissue cells, playing important roles in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases. New line of evidence has been supporting the role of survivin dysfunction or aberrant expression in deriving autoreactive lymphocytes or some important immune tissues, which may underpin the autoimmune conditions such as Lichen planus (LP), Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Myasthenia gravis (MG), Multiple sclerosis (MS), Systemic sclerosis (SSc), Psoriasis, and Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Hence, the purpose of the current paper was to review the survivin role in the e...

Authors: Luo Y, Xiao R Abstract Scleroderma (systemic sclerosis; SSc) is a complex and highly heterogeneous multisystem rheumatic disease characterized by vascular abnormality, immunologic derangement, and excessive deposition of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins. To date, the etiology of this life-threatening disorder remains not fully clear. More and more studies show epigenetic modifications play a vital role. The aberrant epigenetic status of certain molecules such as Fli-1, BMPRII, NRP1, CD70, CD40L, CD11A, FOXP3, KLF5, DKK1, SFRP1, and so on contributes to the pathogenesis of progressive vasculopathy, autoi...

Authors: Chan VS Abstract Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an aggravating autoimmune disease that cripples young patients slowly with physical, sensory and cognitive deficits. The break of self-tolerance to neuronal antigens is the key to the pathogenesis of MS, with autoreactive T cells causing demyelination that subsequently leads to inflammation-mediated neurodegenerative events in the central nervous system. The exact etiology of MS remains elusive; however, the interplay of genetic and environmental factors contributes to disease development and progression. Given that genetic variation only accounts for a fraction ...

Epigenetics in Primary Sjögren's Syndrome. Adv Exp Med Biol. 2020;1253:285-308 Authors: Bordron A, Devauchelle-Pensec V, Le Dantec C, Capdeville A, Brooks WH, Renaudineau Y Abstract Primary Sjögren's syndrome (SjS) is a chronic and systemic autoimmune epithelitis with predominant female incidence, which is characterized by exocrine gland dysfunction. Incompletely understood, the etiology of SjS is multi-factorial and evidence is growing to consider that epigenetic factors are playing a crucial role in its development. Independent from DNA sequence mutations, epigenetics is described as inheri...
