We hypothesize that a major factor regulating hepatic metastasis is the ability of CEA (carcinoembryonic antigen) producing colorectal carcinomas to activate Kupffer cells. CEA and NCA (nonspecific cross-reacting antigen) bind to an 80 kDa Kupffer cell receptor by the peptide sequence PELPK and stimulate cytokine production. Cytokines induce sinusoidal(More)
Kupffer cells, a majority of the body's fixed macrophages, are a major site of bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) metabolism and are mediators in the body's response to sepsis. Uptake of LPS is different in Kupffer cells than other macrophages. Signal transduction in other macrophages in response to LPS involves phosphorylation of proteins in the 50–60 kDa(More)
Sodium nitroprusside (SNP) is an antihypertensive drug with proven toxic effects attributed mainly to the production of nitric oxide (NO). Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are widely regarded as functional foods and have been shown to ameliorate the harmful effects of many toxicants. This study examined whether feeding of fish oil (FO)/flaxseed oil (FXO)(More)
