Group 2 innate lymphoid cells and asthma.
Tokyo, Japan. In Allergol Int, 31 Jul 2015
Group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) are recently identified cell populations that produce type 2 cytokines such as IL-5 and IL-13 in response to epithelial cell-derived cytokines.
Complex host genetic susceptibility to Staphylococcus aureus infections.
Marshfield, United States. In Trends Microbiol, 22 Jul 2015
Mouse models show variable susceptibility to S. aureus infections across mouse strains and disease models with roles for signaling pathways involving Toll-like receptors (TLR-1, TLR-2, and TLR-6), interleukins (IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, and IL-13), chemokines [CXC ligand (CXCL)-1 and CXCL-2], and T helper (Th)1/Th2 responses.
Thyroid dysfunction: an autoimmune aspect.
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In Int J Clin Exp Med, Dec 2014
Various cytokines IL-1α, IL-1β, IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12, IL-13, IL-14, TNF-α and IFN-γ are found in thyroid follicular cells which enhance inflammatory response with nitric oxide (NO) and prostaglandins.
GATA-3 function in innate and adaptive immunity.
Rotterdam, Netherlands. In Immunity, Sep 2014
The zinc-finger transcription factor GATA-3 has received much attention as a master regulator of T helper 2 (Th2) cell differentiation, during which it controls interleukin-4 (IL-4), IL-5, and IL-13 expression.
