Relationship between serum cytokines and growth factors level and coronary artery disease.
Mashhad, Iran. In Clin Biochem, 21 Mar 2015
Twelve cytokines (IL-1α, IL-1β, IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, TNF-α, MCP-1, IFN-γ, EGF, and VEGF) were measured using a sandwich chemi-luminescence assays, on the Evidence Investigator® system.
Endophilin marks and controls a clathrin-independent endocytic pathway.
Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Nature, 22 Feb 2015
This pathway mediates the ligand-triggered uptake of several G-protein-coupled receptors such as α2a- and β1-adrenergic, dopaminergic D3 and D4 receptors and muscarinic acetylcholine receptor 4, the receptor tyrosine kinases EGFR, HGFR, VEGFR, PDGFR, NGFR and IGF1R, as well as interleukin-2 receptor.
Insights Into Cytokine-Receptor Interactions from Cytokine Engineering.
Stanford, United States. In Annu Rev Immunol, Jan 2015
Here we review the theory and practice of cytokine engineering and rationalize the mechanisms of several engineered cytokines in the context of structure.Wediscuss specific examples of how structure-based cytokine engineering has opened new opportunities for cytokines as drugs, with a focus on the immunotherapeutic cytokines interferon, interleukin-2, and interleukin-4.
Tailored therapy for severe asthma.
Reggio nell'Emilia, Italy. In Multidiscip Respir Med, Dec 2014
The most promising agents are targeted against cytokines of Th2 pattern and related receptors, such as IL-2 (daclizumab) and IL-13 (lebrikizumab) or IL-5 in patients with hypereosinophilia (mepolizumab, reslizumab and benralizumab).
