Synergistic Proinflammatory Responses by IL-17A and Toll-Like Receptor 3 in Human Airway Epithelial Cells.
Hamamatsu, Japan. In Plos One, 2014
In this study, we demonstrated that IL-17A and polyI:C, the ligand of TLR3, synergistically induced the expression of proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines (G-CSF, IL-8, CXCL1, CXCL5, IL-1F9), but not type I interferon (IFN-α1, -β) in primary culture of normal human bronchial epithelial cells.
Genetic predisposition to calcific aortic stenosis and mitral annular calcification.
Kemerovo, Russia. In Mol Biol Rep, 2014
A number of other polymorphisms, such as PvuII polymorphism within the ORα gene, rs1042636 polymorphism within the CaSR gene, rs3024491, rs3021094, rs1554286, and rs3024498 polymorphisms within the IL10 gene, rs662 polymorphism within the PON1 gene, rs2276288 polymorphism within the MYO7A gene, rs5194 polymorphism within the AGTR1 gene, rs2071307 polymorphism within the ELN gene, rs17659543 and rs13415097 polymorphisms within the IL1F9 gene may correlate with a risk of calcific valve stenosis with moderate level of evidence.
Keratinocyte overexpression of IL-17C promotes psoriasiform skin inflammation.
Ann Arbor, United States. In J Immunol, 2013
ECs stimulated with IL-17C produce increased TNF-α and KCs stimulated with IL-17C/TNF-α produce similar inflammatory gene response patterns as those elicited by IL-17A/TNF-α, including increases in IL-17C, TNF-α, IL-8, IL-1α/β, IL-1F5, IL-1F9, IL-6, IL-19, CCL20, S100A7/A8/A9, DEFB4, lipocalin 2, and peptidase inhibitor 3 (p < 0.05), indicating a positive proinflammatory feedback loop between the epidermis and ECs.
