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

Abstract The discovery of "oestrus-producing" hormones was a major research breakthrough in biochemistry and pharmacology during the early part of the 20th century. The elucidation of the molecular weight and chemical structure of major oxidative metabolites of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) led to the award of the Nobel Prize in 1939 to Adolf Frederick Johann Butenandt and Leopold Ruzicka. Considered a bulk androgen in the circulation, DHEA and its sulfated metabolite DHEA-S can be taken up by most tissues where the sterols are metabolized to active androgenic and estrogenic compounds needed for growth a...

The relapsing-remitting disease course contributes to application of a variety of immunosuppressants to prevent further relapses after high-dose methylprednisolone pulse therapy for acute attacks. Azathioprine is one of the most widely used immunosuppressive drugs during the remission stage of NMO due to its good efficacy an...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease characterized by joint infiltration and bone damage. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the beneficial effects of losartan in adjuvant-induced arthritis (AIA). Arthritis was induced in rats by subcutaneous injection of 0.2ml of Complete Freund’s adjuvant (CFA) in the planter surface of the hind paw. Arthritic rats were allocated into three groups (n=10), the first group (arthritis control), received 1% of tween 80, the second and the third groups received prednisolone (10 mg/kg/day; p.o) and losartan (20 mg/kg/day; p.o) respectively for two wee...

AbstractPurpose of reviewCongenital myasthenia syndromes are clinically and genetically heterogeneous but treatable conditions. Careful selection of drug therapy is paramount as the same drug can be effective, ineffective, and even harmful in different congenital myasthenia syndromes. The purpose of this article is to review current treatment options for these conditions.Recent findingsNext-generation sequencing has accelerated the discovery of new genes and facilitated the description of novel congenital myasthenic syndromes. Retrospective therapy data from these newly identified syndromes has provided additional insight ...

ConclusionsPediatric demyelinating diseases in Brazil are similar to the diseases described abroad. In patients with pMS, the EDSS score at the first appointment and the total number of relapses were associated with poor prognosis. NMOSD is more severe than MS in pediatric patients. Treatment with DMD and azathioprine was well tolerated and effective in reducing relapse rate and disability.
