Still Alive and Kicking: In-Vitro-Generated GM-CSF Dendritic Cells!
Würzburg, Germany. In Immunity, Feb 2016
UNASSIGNED: In a recent article (Helft et al., 2015), murine bone marrow (BM) cultures with granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) were analyzed for macrophage ("GM-Mac") and dendritic cell ("GM-DC") subsets, and the GM-DC subset was compared with conventional or classical DC (cDC) subsets isolated from peripheral and lymphoid organs of mice.
ORF3 of Hepatitis E Virus Inhibits the Expression of Proinflammatory Cytokines and Chemotactic Factors in LPS-Stimulated Human PMA-THP1 Cells by Inhibiting NF-κB Pathway.
Chongqing, China. In Viral Immunol, Feb 2016
In this study, the ELISA assay was used to detect protein levels, and we found that HEV open reading frame 3 (ORF3) protein inhibited the expression of proinflammatory cytokines (tumor necrosis factor-alpha [TNF-α], interleukin [IL]-1β, IL-6, IL-8, IL-12p40, and IL-18) and chemotactic factors (nitric oxide [NO], interferon-inducible protein-10 (IP-10), macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP)-1α, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF)] in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated human PMA-THP1 cells.
Emerging drugs for the treatment of sepsis.
Garches, France. In Expert Opin Emerg Drugs, Feb 2016
Candidate drugs for sepsis include hemoperfusion with polymyxin B coated fibre devices, modulation of the immune system with treatments such as hydrocortisone, intravenous immunoglobulins, mesenchymal stem cells, GM-CSF or interferon gamma.
Cytokines and Blastocyst Hatching.
Bengaluru, India. In Am J Reprod Immunol, Jan 2016
Pro-inflammatory (IL-6, LIF, GM-CSF) and anti-inflammatory (IL-11, CSF-1) cytokines improve hatching rates; they modulate proteases (MMPs, tPAs, cathepsins and ISP1).
