Wound repair: role of immune-epithelial interactions.
München, Germany. In Mucosal Immunol, 30 Sep 2015
This process is highly regulated by proteins and lipids, proresolving mediators such as Annexin A1 protein and resolvins released into the epithelial milieu by the epithelium itself and infiltrating innate immune cells including neutrophils and macrophages.
The resolution of inflammation: Principles and challenges.
London, United Kingdom. In Semin Immunol, May 2015
These mediators are diverse in nature, and include specialized lipid mediators (lipoxins, resolvins, protectins and maresins) proteins (annexin A1, galectins) and peptides, gaseous mediators including hydrogen sulphide, a purine (adenosine), as well as neuromodulator release under the control of the vagus nerve.
Annexin A1 in malignant tumors: current opinions and controversies.
Xi'an, China. In Int J Biol Markers, 2014
Annexin A1 is a 37 kDa calcium and phospholipid-binding protein that participates in several biological processes, such as inflammatory reactions, modulation of cell proliferation, regulation of cell death signaling, apoptosis, and, most importantly, tumor formation and development.
