The role of macrophages in hypertension and its complications.
(Pflugers Archiv : European journal of physiology, 2017-04)
Circulating monocytes and tissue macrophages play complex roles in the pathogenesis of hypertension, a highly prevalent disease associated with catastrophic cardiovascular morbidity. In the vasculature and kidney, ...
Paracrine Wnt5a-β-Catenin Signaling Triggers a Metabolic Program that Drives Dendritic Cell Tolerization.
Despite recent advances, many cancers remain refractory to available immunotherapeutic strategies. Emerging evidence indicates that the tolerization of local dendritic cells (DCs) within the tumor microenvironment promotes ...
Endosome and INPP4B.
FGF23/FGFR4-mediated left ventricular hypertrophy is reversible.
(Scientific reports, 2017-05-16)
Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) 23 is a phosphaturic hormone that directly targets cardiac myocytes via FGF receptor (FGFR) 4 thereby inducing hypertrophic myocyte growth and the development of left ventricular hypertrophy ...
Epidermal growth factor regulates hematopoietic regeneration after radiation injury.
(Nat Med, 2013-03)
The mechanisms that regulate hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) regeneration after myelosuppressive injury are not well understood. We identified epidermal growth factor (EGF) to be highly enriched in the bone marrow serum of ...
Hedgehog signaling antagonist promotes regression of both liver fibrosis and hepatocellular carcinoma in a murine model of primary liver cancer.
(PLoS One, 2011)
OBJECTIVE: Chronic fibrosing liver injury is a major risk factor for hepatocarcinogenesis in humans. Mice with targeted deletion of Mdr2 (the murine ortholog of MDR3) develop chronic fibrosing liver injury. Hepatocellular ...
Emerging treatment options to improve cardiovascular outcomes in patients with acute coronary syndrome: focus on losmapimod.
(Drug Des Devel Ther, 2015)
Each year, despite optimal use of recommended acute and secondary prevention therapies, 4%-5% of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) experience relapse of ACS or other cardiovascular events including stroke, heart ...
Pleiotrophin regulates the ductular reaction by controlling the migration of cells in liver progenitor niches.
OBJECTIVE: The ductular reaction (DR) involves mobilisation of reactive-appearing duct-like cells (RDC) along canals of Hering, and myofibroblastic (MF) differentiation of hepatic stellate cells (HSC) in the space of Disse. ...
The role of GRK6 in animal models of Parkinson's disease and L-DOPA treatment.
(Sci Rep, 2012)
G protein-coupled Receptor Kinase 6 (GRK6) belongs to a family of kinases that phosphorylate GPCRs. GRK6 levels were found to be altered in Parkinson's Disease (PD) and D(2) dopamine receptors are supersensitive in mice ...
The liver kinase B1 is a central regulator of T cell development, activation, and metabolism.
(J Immunol, 2011-10-15)
T cell activation leads to engagement of cellular metabolic pathways necessary to support cell proliferation and function. However, our understanding of the signal transduction pathways that regulate metabolism and their ...
