Critical role of Th17 responses in a murine model of Neisseria gonorrhoeae genital infection
Host immune responses, including the characteristic influx of neutrophils, against Neisseria gonorrhoeae are poorly understood; adaptive immunity is minimal and nonprotective. The importance of the newly defined Th17 cell ...
Increased expression of Alzheimer's disease related genes in obesity
Many epidemiological studies have demonstrated that obesity is associated with an increased incidence and prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) which is characterized by plaques of β-amyloid (Aβ) peptides formed from its ...
Role of ST6Gal-1 sialyltransferase in inflammation and hematopoiesis
The ST6Gal-1 sialyltransferase is expressed abundantly in liver where it's expression is mediated by the P1 promoter, one of the six known distinct promoter-regulatory region of ST6Gal-1 gene. Hepatic ST6Gal-1 contributes ...
Effect of aerobic exercise training on adipose tissue hypoxia and inflammation in obesity
Background . Current research has begun to examine adipose hypoxia as a possible mechanism for obesity-related chronic inflammation. Purpose . The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of aerobic exercise ...
