Notch signaling is involved in regulation of LPS-induced macrophage apoptosis through JNK/NF-kB signaling pathway.
Authors: Chen GQ, Wang QM, Yu M, Cheng YD, Zhang ZC, Wang WS, Qiu Y, Sun LH, Peng K, Yang H Abstract Notch signaling plays a critical role in the development and function of macrophages. The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between Notch signaling pathway and macrophage apoptosis after LPS stimulation. In RAW 264.7 cells, the mRNA expression of Jagged1, Hes1, Hes 5 and GM-CSF, and protein expression of NICD1 and GM-CSF were increased after LPS stimulation. Inhibition of Notch signaling by γ-secretase inhibitor DAPT and the suppression of Notch1 expression using siRNA both significa...

Mast cells contribute to coronavirus-induced inflammation: new anti-inflammatory strategy.
Authors: Kritas SK, Ronconi G, Caraffa A, Gallenga CE, Ross R, Conti P Abstract Coronavirus, which can cause respiratory syndrome, to date has affected over seventeen thousand individuals, especially in China. Coronavirus is interspecies and can also be transmitted from man to man, with an incubation ranging from 1 to 14 days. Human coronavirus infections can induce not only mild to severe respiratory diseases, but also inflammation, high fever, cough, acute respiratory tract infection and dysfunction of internal organs that may lead to death. Coronavirus infection (regardless of the various types of corona virus) ...

Authors: Wu ZP, Fang HX Abstract The purpose of this paper was to investigate the dynamic trend of SIRT5 (Sirtuins 5) protein expression in gastric cancer cells, for which a hypoxic gastric cancer cell line was established. Afterward, the parental gastric cancer cell group and hypo group were designed, and the levels of related proteins and mRNAs were detected by using Western blot along with real-time quantitative fluorescence PCR (RT-PCR). The results showed that the expression of SIRT5 in hypoxic gastric cancer cells increased significantly, which could increase the phosphorylation level of c-MET (hepatocyte gro...

Interleukin-2-mediated stat-5 expression levels in CD8+CD25+ regulatory T cells: the relevance for asthma.
Authors: Eusebio M, Kraszula L, Kupczyk M, Kuna P, Pietruczuk M Abstract Preliminary studies demonstrated the potential role of CD8+CD25+ T regulatory cells (Tregs) in asthma. However, published data with regard to the relevance of signaling pathways that govern Tregs homeostasis are limited and conflicting. The first aim of this study was to characterize the phosphorylation of STAT-5 in CD8+CD25+ Tregs. The second aim was to investigate the ability of CD8+CD25+ Tregs from patients and controls to respond to interleukin (IL)-2 treatment in vitro. Twenty-five healthy subjects (NC) and 50 patients with either severe ...

CAR-T cell therapy causes inflammation by IL-1 which activates inflammatory cytokine mast cells: anti-inflammatory role of IL-37.
Authors: Caraffa A, Gallenga CE, Kritas SK, Ronconi G, Di Emidio P, Conti P Abstract Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells are genetically modified T cells that act against cancer. When CAR-T cells are administered they can trigger inflammatory cytokines and increase toxicity. Interleukin (IL)-1 is the classic cytokine that mediates inflammatory reactions including those that occur in CAR-T-cell therapy. IL-1 also induces IL-33 in mast cells (MCs), amplifying the allergic reaction. IL- 37 (ILF7) is an IL-1 family member which binds IL-18 receptor alpha (IL-18Rα) chain and suppresses innate and acquired immu...

Inflammatory markers as prognosticators of cardiovascular dysfunction in hypothyroid patients.
Authors: Naseem Z, Iqbal MA, Ahmad S, Roohi N Abstract INTRODUCTION: To the Editor. Hypothyroidism is a condition characterized by reduced circulating levels of thyroid hormones, T3 (tri-iodothyronine) and T4 (tetra-iodothyronine) which are produced by the thyroid gland, and increased levels of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) from the anterior pituitary (1). The cardiovascular system is among the main targets of thyroid hormones (2), therefore, most descriptive signs and symptoms of thyroid disorders are due to their effects on the cardiovascular system (3). Direct actions of altered thyroid hormones on heart and...
