An Outbreak of Caparinia tripilis in a Colony of African Pygmy Hedgehogs (Atelerix albiventris) from Korea
This is the first report of caparinic mite infestation in hedgehogs from Korea and the mites were identified as Caparinia tripilis. Expand
A hot water extract of Aralia cordata activates bone marrow‐derived macrophages via a myeloid differentiation protein 88‐dependent pathway and protects mice from bacterial infection
It was found that HAC activates bone marrow‐derived macrophages (BMDM) and increases amounts of nitric oxide and proinflammatory cytokines in a dose‐dependent manner and exerts immunostimulatory effects through the TLR/MyD88 and NF‐κB/MAPK signal transduction pathways. Expand
A hot‐water extract of Sanguisorba officinalis ameliorates endotoxin‐induced septic shock by inhibiting inflammasome activation
It was found that a hot‐water extract of Sanguisorba officinalis (HSO) suppresses inflammasome activation triggered by adenosine 5′‐triphosphate, nigericin, microbial pathogens, and double stranded DNA in bone marrow‐derived macrophages. Expand
110: SO-HW01, a medicinal plant extract, inhibits inflammasome activation and prevents endotoxin-induced septic shock in mice
Results demonstrate that HSO inhibits NLRP3, NLRC4, and AIM2 inflammasome activation and it has a potential use in the treatment of inflammsome-mediated diseases. Expand
Validation of the status of a species with high CO1 and low nuclear genetic divergences: the scab mite Caparinia ictonyctis stat. res. (Acariformes: Psoroptidae) parasitizing the African hedgehog
There is a conflict between the mitochondrial (CO1) gene and nuclear genes (i.e mito-nuclear discordance) in two host-specific lineages of scab mites of the genus Caparinia, parasitizing European and African hedgehogs, suggesting that these lineages could belong to a single species with gene flow between them.
