Leukocyte rolling has been postulated to be mandatory for subsequent leukocyte adhesion and tissue injury observed during ischemia/reperfusion. The objective of this study was to systematically assess this hypothesis at the microvascular level by examining the effects of various concentrations of a selectin-binding carbohydrate (fucoidin) on the increased(More)
High levels of the proto-oncogene product, pp60c-src, have been found in developing and adult neural tissues as well as in certain fully mature cells of the hematopoietic lineage, e.g., platelets and myelomonocytes. Adrenal medullary chromaffin cells exhibit characteristics of both types of cells, i.e., they are derived from the neural crest and carry out(More)
Evidence shows that leukocyte recruitment into inflamed liver sinusoids does not require selectins, with one notable exception: ischemia-reperfusion (I/R). We used intravital microscopy to directly visualize the liver microcirculation during I/R and localized endotoxemia (liver superfused with lipopolysaccharide). General anti-selectin therapy (fucoidan) or(More)
Nitric oxide (NO), in addition to being a potent vasodilator, also prevents leukocyte adhesion in the microvasculature. Based on the antiadhesive properties of NO and work suggesting that NO is transported by proteins in the circulation, we tested the possibility that inhaled NO could impart antiadhesive effects in peripheral microvessels. We also(More)
BACKGROUND The AGE-RAGE-oxidative stress (AROS) axis is involved in the onset and progression of metabolic syndrome induced by a high-fructose diet (HFD). PPARγ activation is known to modulate metabolic syndrome; however a systems-level investigation looking at the protective effects of PPARγ activation as related to the AROS axis has not been performed.(More)
One very important functional domain of proteins is the protein-protein interacting region (PPIR), which forms the binding interface between interacting polypeptide chains. Post-translational modifications (PTMs) that occur in the PPIR can either interfere with or facilitate the interaction between proteins. The ability to predict whether sites of protein(More)
There is a growing body of evidence that leukocyte recruitment into inflamed liver sinusoids does not require selectins, with one notable exception being ischemia/reperfusion. In this study we used intravital microscopy to directly visualize the liver microcirculation during ischemia/reperfusion and during localized endotoxemia (LPS superfused on liver). In(More)
