Genetic polymorphisms in oxidative stress pathway genes and modification of BMI and risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
New Haven, United States. In Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev, 2012
RESULTS: Polymorphisms in AKR1A1, AKR1C1, AKR1C3, CYBA, GPX1, MPO, NCF2, NCF4, NOS1, NOS2A NOS3, OGG1, ATG9B, SOD1, SOD2, SOD3, RAC1, and RAC2 genes after false discovery rate adjustment did not modify the association between BMI and risk of NHL overall and histologic subtypes.
Polymorphisms in autophagy genes and susceptibility to tuberculosis.
Nijmegen, Netherlands. In Plos One, 2011

HLA-linked immune suppression in humans.
Fukuoka, Japan. In Immunol Suppl, 1988
There is no doubt that HLA-DR molecules are acting as the products of HLA-linked immune response genes (Ir-genes), because (i) HLA-DR molecules are the restriction elements in the interaction between CD4+ helper T cells and antigen-presenting cells (APC) to respond to many antigens such as streptococcal cell wall antigen (SCW) (Nishimura & Sasazuki, 1983; Sone et al., 1985; Hizayama et al., 1986), schistosomal antigen (Sj) (Hirayama et al., 1987), Mycobacterium leprae antigen (ML) (Kikuchi et al., 1986) and so on; and (ii) anti-HLA-DR monoclonal antibodies completely abolish the immune response to those antigens (Nishimura & Sasazuki, 1983; Sone et al., 1985).
