Generation and transcriptional programming of intestinal dendritic cells: essential role of retinoic acid.
Stanford, United States. In Mucosal Immunol, 01 Aug 2015
Effects of dietary deficiency were most apparent in the proximal small intestine and were rapidly reversed by reintroducing vitamin A. In cultures of pre-μDC with Flt3L and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), RA induced cDC with characteristic phenotypes of intestinal cDC1 and cDC2 by controlling subset-defining cell surface receptors, regulating subset-specific transcriptional programs, and suppressing proinflammatory nuclear factor-κB-dependent gene expression.
Particle characterisation and cytokine expression in failed small-diameter metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasties.
Singapore, Singapore. In Bone Joint J, 31 Jul 2015
14 cytokines (interleukin (IL)-1ß, IL-2, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-10, IL-13, IL-17, interferon (IFN)-γ, and IFN-gamma-inducible protein 10), chemokines (macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP)-1α and MIP-1ß), and growth factors (granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) and platelet derived growth factor) were detected at significantly higher levels in patients with metal wear debris compared with the control group.
Beyond the age of cellular discovery.
Nashville, United States. In Nat Immunol, Dec 2014
The combination of machine-learning tools and mass-cytometry measurements of more than 30 protein markers per cell comprehensively maps cell identity in the heterogeneous myeloid cell system and reveals the global effect of deletion of the gene encoding the receptor for the growth factor GM-CSF.
Immune tolerance of mice allogenic tooth transplantation induced by immature dendritic cells.
Chongqing, China. In Int J Clin Exp Med, Dec 2014
To test this hypothesis, a mouse model of allogenic and autogeneic tooth transplantation was to established test the immunosuppressive effect of immature dendritic cells (imDCs) derived from donor bone marrows on transplant rejection in allogenic tooth transplantation. 2 × 10(6) imDCs generated with 50 U/ml GM-CSF were injected to each recipient mouse by two ways: tail vein injection 7 days before transplantation or regional dermal injection at day 0 and day 3 after transplantation.
