Activation of NLRP3 inflammasome enhances the proliferation and migration of A549 lung cancer cells.
Nanjing, China. In Oncol Rep, Feb 2016
Moreover, these effects were inhibited by the following treatments: i) downregulating the expression of NLRP3 by short hairpin RNA (shRNA) interference, ii) inhibiting the activation of NLRP3 inflammasome with a caspase-1 inhibitor, iii) blocking the interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and IL-18 signal transduction with IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra) and IL-18 binding protein (IL-18BP).
Evaluation and validation of biomarkers in granulomatosis with polyangiitis and microscopic polyangiitis.
Innsbruck, Austria. In Nephrol Dial Transplant, Oct 2015
RESULTS: The review indicated abundant expression of sC5bC9, C3a, C5a and monocyte chemotactic protein (MCP)-1 in urine, whereas granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor, C-reactive protein (CRP), soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1, interleukin-17A (IL-17A), C5a, hyaluronan, C3a and interleukin-18 binding protein (IL-18BP) were identified to be highly diverse in active and inactive disease in blood samples.
Negative regulatory receptors of the IL-1 family.
Rozzano, Italy. In Semin Immunol, 2014
In this review, the negative regulation mediated by decoy receptors are presented and include IL-1R2 and IL-IL-18BP as well as atypical receptors, which include TIR8/SIGIRR, IL-1RAcPb, TIGIRR-1 and IL-1RAPL.
The interleukin-1 family: back to the future.
Rozzano, Italy. In Immunity, 2014
Members of the IL-1 Receptor (IL-1R) family include six receptor chains forming four signaling receptor complexes, two decoy receptors (IL-1R2, IL-18BP), and two negative regulators (TIR8 or SIGIRR, IL-1RAcPb).
