Endophilin marks and controls a clathrin-independent endocytic pathway.
Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Nature, Feb 2015
This pathway mediates the ligand-triggered uptake of several G-protein-coupled receptors such as α2a- and β1-adrenergic, dopaminergic D3 and D4 receptors and muscarinic acetylcholine receptor 4, the receptor tyrosine kinases EGFR, HGFR, VEGFR, PDGFR, NGFR and IGF1R, as well as interleukin-2 receptor.
A toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) variant is associated with asthma severity.
Zhengzhou, China. In Int J Clin Exp Med, Dec 2014
No associations were detected between genotypes at rs11536879 or rs1927907 and CD4(+)CD25(high) regulatory T cell counts in peripheral blood from asthmatic patients (P > 0.05), but the rs1927907 genotype was associated with TLR4 expression on the surface of CD4(+)CD25(high) regulatory T cells (P < 0.05).

BACKGROUND: In previous clinical trials involving children with X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID-X1), a Moloney murine leukemia virus-based γ-retrovirus vector expressing interleukin-2 receptor γ-chain (γc) complementary DNA successfully restored immunity in most patients but resulted in vector-induced leukemia through enhancer-mediated mutagenesis in 25% of patients.
