Recent studies suggested that interruption of the interaction of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), with the signal-transducing receptor receptor for AGE (RAGE), by administration of the soluble, extracellular ligand-binding domain of RAGE, reversed vascular hyperpermeability and suppressed accelerated atherosclerosis in diabetic rodents. Since the(More)
Carbohydrates with reactive aldehyde and ketone groups can undergo Maillard reactions with proteins to form advanced glycation end products. Oxalate monoalkylamide was identified as one of the advanced glycation end products formed from the Maillard reaction of ascorbate with proteins. In these experiments, we have analyzed human lens proteins(More)
Direct genetic manipulation of hematopoietic cells is limited by the lack of an established hematopoietic stem cell line. It has been demonstrated that embryonic stem (ES) cell<-->tetraploid embryos are completely ES cell-derived and that fetal liver (FL) cells from these embryos support hematopoiesis in lethally irradiated recipients. In this report, we(More)
Our previous studies indicated that lymphotoxin β receptor (LTβR) activation controls and downregulates inflammatory reactions. In this study, we report that LTβR activation on primary mouse macrophages results in induction of tripartite motif containing (TRIM) 30α, which negatively regulates NF-κB activation induced by TLR signaling. LTβR activation(More)
Our previous studies indicated that LTβR activation mainly by T cell derived LTα₁β₂ is crucial for the control and down-regulation of intestinal inflammation. In order to dissect the cellular and molecular role of LTβR activation in the experimental model of DSS-induced intestinal inflammation, we have generated cell type-specific LTβR-deficient mice with(More)
Our previous studies indicated that lymphotoxin b receptor (LTbR) activation controls and downregulates inflammatory reactions. In this study, we report that LTbR activation on primary mouse macrophages results in induction of tripartite motif containing (TRIM) 30a, which negatively regulates NF-kB activation induced by TLR signaling. LTbR activation(More)
Lymphotoxin beta-receptor (LTβR) is involved in the formation and maintenance of secondary lymphoid structures, as well as in the regulation of inflammatory responses. Because LTβR lymphoid structure formation continues to develop in infants, we compared two different chimera models: one using adult mice and the other using a transplantation model of(More)
