Serum Biomarkers of Allergic Contact Dermatitis: A Pilot Study.
Vilnius, Lithuania. In Int Arch Allergy Immunol, Feb 2016
RESULTS: Serum levels of adiponectin, chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 5 (CCL5), C-reactive protein (CRP), chitinase 3-like 1 (CHI3L1), complement factor D (CFD), endoglin, lipocalin-2, osteopontin, retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4), and platelet factor 4 (PF4) were significantly higher, whereas levels of trefoil factor 3 (TFF3) were significantly lower, in ACD patients than in healthy controls.
Adaptations of the Secretome of Candida albicans in Response to Host-Related Environmental Conditions.
Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Eukaryot Cell, Dec 2015
The genes ENG1, CHT3, and SCW11, which encode an endoglucanase, the major chitinase, and a β-1,3-glucan-modifying enzyme, respectively, are periodically expressed and peak in M/G1.
Human chitotriosidase-catalyzed hydrolysis of chitosan.
Norway. In Biochemistry, 2012
Human chitotriosidase degrades chitosan primarily via an endoprocessive mechanism: the main hydrolysis product is chitobiose, (i.e., the acetylated dimer) fully consistent with its role as a "normal" processive enzyme.
