Vascular and autonomic dysregulation in primary open-angle glaucoma.
Boston, United States. In Curr Opin Ophthalmol, Jan 2016
Interestingly, common genetic variation in nitric oxide synthase 3 (NOS3) and the caveolin 1/caveolin 2 (CAV1/CAV2) genomic regions, which code for proteins involved in setting vascular tone, are associated with POAG.
Patterns of Exposure of Iberian Wolves (Canis lupus) to Canine Viruses in Human-Dominated Landscapes.
Santiago, Chile. In Ecohealth, Dec 2015
With the aim of gaining knowledge in the dynamics of viral infections in Iberian wolves (Canis lupus) living in anthropized landscapes of northern Spain, we analysed between 2010 and 2013 the samples of 54 wolves by serology and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for exposure to four pathogenic canine viruses: canine distemper virus (CDV), canine parvovirus-2 (CPV), canine adenovirus 1 and 2 (CAV-1 and CAV-2) and canine herpesvirus.
Enhanced caveolin-1 expression in smooth muscle cells: Possible prelude to neointima formation.
Valhalla, United States. In World J Cardiol, Nov 2015
The expression of caveolin-1 and its regulatory protein peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) γ, caveolin-2, proliferative and anti-apoptotic factors (PY-STAT3, p-Erk, Bcl-xL), endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) and heat shock protein (HSP) 90 in the lungs were analyzed, and the results from M + H group were compared with the controls, M and H groups.
CAV-2-why a canine virus is a neurobiologist's best friend.
Montpellier, France. In Curr Opin Pharmacol, Oct 2015
Canine adenovirus type 2 (CAV-2) vectors are powerful tools for fundamental and applied neurobiology due to their negligible immunogenicity, preferential transduction of neurons, widespread distribution via axonal transport, and duration of expression in the mammalian brain.
Genetics of primary open angle glaucoma.
Tokyo, Japan. In Jpn J Ophthalmol, 2014
Several association studies have been conducted for candidate genes, and genome-wide association studies recently identified new susceptibility loci for POAG, namely, S1 RNA binding domain 1 region on chromosome 2p21, the caveolin 1 and caveolin 2 regions on 7q31, transmembrane and coiled-coil domain 1 region on 1q24, cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2B antisense RNA on 9p21, the SIX1 and SIX6 regions on 14q24 and, possibly, the regulatory region of 8q22.
Role of Caveolin Proteins in Sepsis.
Columbia, United States. In Pediatr Ther, 2011
Moreover, the most recent report implies that in addition to extensively studied caveolin-1, caveolin-2 is also important in regulating LPS-induced sepsis and might possibly play an opposite role to caveolin-1 in regulating certain pro-inflammatory signaling pathways.
Age and long-term protective immunity in dogs and cats.
Madison, United States. In J Comp Pathol, 2010
Thus, even a single dose of modified live virus (MLV) canine core vaccines (against CDV, cav-2 and cpv-2) or MLV feline core vaccines (against feline parvovirus [FPV], feline calicivirus [FCV] and feline herpesvirus [FHV]), when administered at 16 weeks or older, could provide long-term immunity in a very high percentage of animals, while also increasing herd immunity.
