Fms-related tyrosine kinase 3 ligand
Mouse CD8alpha+ DCs and human BDCA3+ DCs are major producers of IFN-lambda in response to poly IC.
Martinsried, Germany. In J Exp Med, 2010
We demonstrate that poly IC injection in vivo induces large amounts of IFN-λ, which depended on hematopoietic cells and the presence of TLR3 (Toll-like receptor 3), IRF3 (IFN regulatory factor 3), IRF7, IFN-I receptor, Fms-related tyrosine kinase 3 ligand (FL), and IRF8 but not on MyD88 (myeloid differentiation factor 88), Rig-like helicases, or lymphocytes.
Cloning and sequencing of ovine Flt3 ligand.
Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Int J Immunogenet, 2007
A cDNA (879 bp) containing the complete open reading frame of ovine Fms-related tyrosine kinase 3 ligand (Flt3-L) was amplified by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), cloned and sequenced.
Microenvironmental changes during differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells towards chondrocytes.
Montpellier, France. In Arthritis Res Ther, 2006
Importantly, we detected the expression of molecules that were not previously associated with MSCs or chondrocytes, namely metalloproteases (MMP-7 and MMP-28), molecules of the connective tissue growth factor (CTGF); cef10/cyr61 and nov (CCN) family (CCN3 and CCN4), chemokines and their receptors chemokine CXC motif ligand (CXCL1), Fms-related tyrosine kinase 3 ligand (FlT3L), chemokine CC motif receptor (CCR3 and CCR4), molecules with A Disintegrin And Metalloproteinase domain (ADAM8, ADAM9, ADAM19, ADAM23, A Disintegrin And Metalloproteinase with thrombospondin type 1 motif ADAMTS-4 and ADAMTS-5), cadherins (4 and 13) and integrins (alpha4, alpha7 and beta5).
