Although STAT3 is known to initiate Th17 differentiation program, the downstream mechanism is unclear. Here we show that tripartite motif containing 28 (TRIM28) expression in Th17 cells was required for cytokine production and autoimmune diseases. Genome-wide occupancy analysis revealed that TRIM28-bound regions contained almost all Th17-specific super-enhancers, which were impaired after STAT3 or TRIM28 but not ROR t deletion. Importantly, IL6-STAT3 signaling facilitated TRIM28 binding to the Il17-Il17f locus, which was required for epigenetic activation and high-order chromosomal interaction. TRIM28 also formed a complex with STAT3 and RORt, and promoted the recruitment of RORt to target cytokine ge ne. TRIM28 thus is a key player in the epigenetic activation during T cell differentiation

We review the development of exon 51 skipping therapy with eteplirsen for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, including the recent report of long-term, sustained dystrophin production. Studies of the late-life health profile of patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, early detection of left ventricular systolic dysfunction, and caregiver burden are also covered. A study of skeletal muscle magnetic resonance imaging in dysferlinopathies provides an extensive, detailed map of the involved muscles and consistency across phenotypes. Regarding the category of autoimmune myopathies, we discuss an article on the clinical and laborato...

Conclusions: HLA alleles can be used as prognostic biomarkers for immunologic disorders of platelet such as ITP, TTP, and HIT. Different DRB1 alleles enable the assessment of resistance to common ITP treatments as well as disease prognosis. Due to the genetic association between HLA-DR1 and HLA-DQ1 alleles and the role of HLA-DRB1 *11 in TTP, the HLA-DQB1 *02: 02 allele may also play a role in TTP pathogenesis.

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease characterized by islet inflammation and progressive pancreatic β cell destruction. The disease is triggered by a combination of genetic and environmental factors, but the mechanisms leading to the triggering of early innate and late adaptive immunity and consequent progressive pancreatic β cell death remain unclear. The insulin-producing β cells are active s ecretory cells and are thus particularly sensitive to endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. ER stress plays an important role in the pathologic pathway leading to autoimmunity, islet inflammation, and β ce...

A hundred thousand years ago, you’d have no doubt what and how to eat. You would wake up every morning, grab your spear, club or axe and go kill something, wander and gather berries, nuts, or dig in the dirt for roots and tubers, or set traps for fish and reptiles. If you succeeded in the hunt, you would consume every organ that included thyroid, thymus, pancreas, stomach, liver, as well as meat. You’d drink water from streams and rivers, allow skin surface to be exposed to sunlight. You would NOT shower with soap or shampoo, apply hand sanitizer, drink chlorinated water, consume foods laced with herbicides and...
