A20 is a ubiquitin-editing enzyme that attenuates the activity of proximal signaling complexes at pro-inflammatory receptors. It has been well documented that A20 protein plays an important role in response to liver injury and hepatocytes apoptosis in pro-inflammatory pathways. However, there was little evidence showing that A20 protein was involving in(More)
OBJECTIVE Dietary factors have been indicated to influence the pathogenesis and nature course of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) with their wide variances. The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence and clinical significance of 14 serum food specific immunoglobulin G (sIgG) antibodies in patients with IBD. METHODS This retrospective study(More)
Adipose tissue plays a vital role in the development of obesity and related disorders. Our previous study showed that A20, an ubiquitin-editing enzyme with anti-inflammation function, attenuated free fatty acids (FFAs)-induced lipid accumulation in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. Here, we investigated A20 expression in adipose tissue of obese individuals and(More)
BACKGROUND Intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes that reside within the epithelium of the intestine form one of the main branches of the immune system. A majority of IELs express CD8α homodimer together with other molecules associated with immune regulation. Growing evidence points to the WNT signaling pathway as a pivotal piece in the immune balance and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the response rate to vaccination in different treatment groups (nonimmunosuppressants and immunosuppressants). DATA SOURCES We completed an online systematic search using PubMed to identify all articles published in English between January 1990 and December 2013 assessing the effect of the response rate to vaccination in different(More)
