Host Protein Biomarkers Identify Active Tuberculosis in HIV Uninfected and Co-infected Individuals.
United States. In Ebiomedicine, Sep 2015
Biomarker panels whose composition differed according to HIV status, and consisted of 8 host proteins in HIV(-) individuals (CD14, SEPP1, SELL, TNXB, LUM, PEPD, QSOX1, COMP, APOC1), or 10 host proteins in HIV(+) individuals (CD14, SEPP1, PGLYRP2, PFN1, VASN, CPN2, TAGLN2, IGFBP6), respectively, distinguished TB from ORD with excellent accuracy (AUC = 0.96 for HIV(-) TB, 0.95 for HIV(+) TB).
Mammalian PGRPs in the spotlight.
Paris, France. In Cell Host Microbe, 2009
In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Saha et al. (2009) report that the mammalian PGRP, PGLYRP-2, functions as a cytokine-like molecule in a PG-induced arthritis model.
Mammalian PGRPs: novel antibacterial proteins.
Gary, United States. In Cell Microbiol, 2006
One mammalian PGRP, PGLYRP-2, is an N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase that hydrolyses bacterial peptidoglycan and reduces its proinflammatory activity.
The peptidoglycan recognition proteins (PGRPs).
Gary, United States. In Genome Biol, 2005
One mammalian PGRP, PGLYRP-2, is an N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase that hydrolyzes bacterial peptidoglycan and reduces its proinflammatory activity; PGLYRP-2 is secreted from the liver into the blood and is also induced by bacteria in epithelial cells.
