UNLABELLED Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH). OSA is associated with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) in obese subjects. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of CIH on the liver in the absence of obesity. Lean C57BL/6J mice (n = 15) on a regular chow diet were exposed to CIH for 12 weeks(More)
CCAAT/enhancer binding protein beta (C/EBPbeta) is one of a 6-member family of C/EBPs. These transcription factors are involved in the regulation of various aspects of cellular growth and differentiation. Although C/EBPbeta has important functions in B- and T-cell differentiation, its expression has not been well studied in lymphoid tissues. We, therefore,(More)
CCAAT/enhancer binding protein (C/EBP ) is one of a 6-member family of C/EBPs. These transcription factors are involved in the regulation of various aspects of cellular growth and differentiation. Although C/EBP has important functions in Band T-cell differentiation, its expression has not been well studied in lymphoid tissues. We, therefore, analyzed its(More)
Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase 1 (TIMP-1) is a stromal factor with multiple functions. Overexpression of TIMP-1 correlates with aggressive clinical behavior of a spectrum of tumors. Here, for the first time, we address the role of TIMP-1 in the pathogenesis of B-cell lymphomas. An Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-negative Burkitt lymphoma cell line with(More)
In contrast to other causes of herpetic lymphadenitis, the histological features associated with human herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6) infection have remained elusive since its discovery in 1986. We describe the histologic and phenotypic changes associated with acute HHV-6 lymphadenitis in two immunocompetent adults who presented with fever, fatigue, generalized(More)
