Proteomic investigation of whole saliva in Wilson's disease.
Monserrato, Italy. In J Proteomics, Nov 2015
Wilson's disease patient saliva showed high levels of two new fragments of the polymeric immunoglobulin receptor, and of α-defensins 2 and 4. Overall, the salivary proteome of Wilson's disease patients reflected oxidative stress and inflammatory conditions characteristic of the pathology, highlighting differences that could be useful clues of disease exacerbation.
The mucosal immune system: From dentistry to vaccine development.
Tokyo, Japan. In Proc Jpn Acad Ser B Phys Biol Sci, 2014
At effector sites, PP-originated antigen-specific IgA B cells become plasma cells to produce polymeric IgA and form secretory IgA by binding to poly-Ig receptor expressed on epithelial cells for protective immunity.
Functional architecture of the retromer cargo-recognition complex.
Bethesda, United States. In Nature, 2007
The retromer complex is required for the sorting of acid hydrolases to lysosomes, transcytosis of the polymeric immunoglobulin receptor, Wnt gradient formation, iron transporter recycling and processing of the amyloid precursor protein.
