cAMP mediated signaling may play a suppressive role in immune response. We previously found that the cAMP-elevators (CTx and 8-Br-cAMP) inhibited IL-12, IL-la, IL-6 gene expression, but increased the transcriptional levels of IL-10 and IL-1Ra in LPS-treated murine peritoneal macrophages. The present study examined a possible molecular mechanism involved in(More)
OBJECTIVE Atherosclerosis (AS) is widely accepted as an inflammatory disease and monocytes are particularly important in inflammatory immune responses. As an important biomarker of monocytes activation, Siglec-1 is highly expressed on circulating monocytes and atherosclerotic plaques of coronary artery disease (CAD) patients, but the exact role of Siglec-1(More)
OBJECTIVES Elevated expression of Siglec-1 on circulating monocytes has been reported in some inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, but its expression and role in RA has not been elucidated. The aims of this study were to determine the expression of Siglec-1 in peripheral blood and to explore its role in mononuclear cell reactivity to autoantigen in RA. (More)
BACKGROUND Macrophages play a proatherosclerotic role in atherosclerosis via oxLDL uptake. As an adhesion molecular of I-type lectins, Siglec-1 is highly expressed on circulating monocytes and plaque macrophages of atherosclerotic patients, but the exact role of Siglec-1 has not been elucidated. METHODS In this study, oxLDL was used to stimulate Siglec-1(More)
Critical epigenetic regulation of primate embryogenesis entails DNA methylome changes. Here we report genome-wide composition, patterning, and stage-specific dynamics of DNA methylation in pre-implantation rhesus monkey embryos as well as male and female gametes studied using an optimized tagmentation-based whole-genome bisulfite sequencing method. We show(More)
Clinically available red blood cells (RBCs) for transfusions are at high demand, but in vitro generation of RBCs from hematopoietic stem cells requires significant quantities of growth factors. Here, we describe the production of four human growth factors: erythropoietin (EPO), stem cell factor (SCF), interleukin 3 (IL-3), and insulin-like growth factor-1(More)
AIMS As a transcription factor of the nuclear receptor superfamily, neuron-derived orphan receptor 1 (NOR1) is induced rapidly in response to various extracellular stimuli. But, it is still unclear its role in pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells proliferation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Human PASMCs were cultured in vitro and stimulated by serum. The special(More)
