[Genetic risk factors for vasculitis.]
Germany. In Internist (berl), 13 Dec 2013
These studies delivered valuable information with respect to the pathogenesis and therapeutic targets: Apart from HLA-B51 and HLA-A26, distinct polymorphisms in cytokine (IL-10) or cytokine receptor (IL-12R/IL-23R) genes, transcription factors (STAT4) and genes encoding for proteins involved in antigen presentation (ERAP-1) have been identified as risk factors for Behçet's disease.
The genetics of complex cholestatic disorders.
Birmingham, United Kingdom. In Gastroenterology, Jun 2013
In contrast, studies have associated primary biliary cirrhosis and primary sclerosing cholangitis with genes encoding major histocompatibility complex proteins and identified loci associated with microbial sensing and immune regulatory pathways outside this region, such as genes encoding IL12, STAT4, IRF5, IL2 and its receptor (IL2R), CD28, and CD80.
The genetics of Behçet's disease in a Chinese population.
Chongqing, China. In Front Med, Dec 2012
A large number of gene polymorphisms were studied including STAT4, IL23R, CD40, CCR1/CCR3, STAT3, OPN, IL17, JAK2, MCP-1, CTLA4, PD-1, PD-L1, PD-L2, TGRBR3, CCR6, PTPN22, FCRL3, IRF5, SUMO4 and UBAC2.
Cytokine-induced cytokine production by conventional and innate lymphoid cells.
Bethesda, United States. In Trends Immunol, Dec 2012
Usually, there is linkage between the IL-1 family member, the activated STAT and the cytokines produced: IFNγ producers respond to the IL-1 family member, IL-18 and IL-12, a STAT4 activator; IL-13 producers respond to IL-33 (although for ILC2 cells this may be replaced by IL-25) and STAT5 activators; for cells producing IL-17A or IL-22, the combination is IL-1 and a STAT3 inducer.
