Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is a member of the Transforming Growth Factor-beta (TGF-beta) family implicated in the regression of Müllerian ducts in male fetuses and in the development and function of gonads of both sexes. Members of the TGF-beta family signal through two types of serine/threonine kinase receptors called type I and type II, and two types of(More)
Animal models of vitamin A (retinol) deficiency have highlighted its crucial role in reproduction and placentation, whereas an excess of retinoids (structurally or functionally related entities) can cause toxic and teratogenic effects in the embryo and foetus, especially in the first trimester of human pregnancy. Knock-out experimental strategies-targeting(More)
Vitamin A and its active forms (retinoic acids/RAs) are known to have pro-healing properties, but their mechanisms of action are still poorly understood. This work aimed to identify the cellular and molecular processes by which atRA (all-trans RA) improves wound healing, using an in vivo model of mouse corneal alkali burns and an in vitro cellular human(More)
Inhibition of receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGE) improves alveolar fluid clearance and lung injury in a mouse model of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) Rationale The receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGE) is a transmembrane multipattern receptor abundantly expressed on the basal surface of alveolar type (AT) I cells.(More)
