We have previously described enrichment of antigen-presenting HLA-DR+ nuclear RelB+ dendritic cells (DCs) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) synovium. CD123+HLA-DR+ plasmacytoid DCs (pDCs) and their precursors have been identified in human peripheral blood (PB), lymphoid tissue, and some inflamed tissues. We hypothesized recruitment of pDCs into the inflamed RA(More)
Preterm delivery increases the risk of inadequate systemic blood flow and hypotension, and many preterm infants fail to respond to conventional inotrope treatments. If the profile of cardiac adrenoceptor subtypes in the preterm neonate is different to that at term this may contribute to these clinical problems. This study measured mRNA expression of β1, β2,(More)
Fetuses of pregnant ewes, which were subtotally nephrectomized prior to mating, were studied to assess whether mild maternal renal impairment would affect fetal tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) under control conditions and after the inhibition of macula densa-derived nitric oxide (NO). Based on previous observations we hypothesized that, the TGF curve of(More)
