Role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in apoptosis induction
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) and mitochondria play an important role in apoptosis induction under both physiologic and pathologic conditions. Interestingly, mitochondria are both source and targetExpand

Nerve growth factor displays stimulatory effects on human skin and lung fibroblasts, demonstrating a direct role for this factor in tissue repair
Nerve growth factor (NGF) is a polypeptide which, in addition to its effect on nerve cells, is believed to play a role in inflammatory responses and in tissue repair. Because fibroblasts representExpand

What is the physiological function of mast cells?
Abstract:  Under physiological conditions, skin mast cells preferentially localize around nerves, blood vessels and hair follicles. This observation, which dates back to Paul Ehrlich, intuitivelyExpand

The inhibitory receptor IRp60 (CD300a) suppresses the effects of IL-5, GM-CSF, and eotaxin on human peripheral blood eosinophils.
Allergic, inflammatory, and immune responses carried out by eosinophils are regulated by the cross talk between activatory and inhibitory signals. While much data has been obtained on activatoryExpand

Intracellular localization of interleukin-6 in eosinophils from atopic asthmatics and effects of interferon gamma.
Eosinophils, prominent cells in asthmatic inflammation, have been shown to synthesize, store, and release an array of up to 18 cytokines and growth factors, including interleukin-6 (IL-6). In thisExpand

Food allergy as a risk factor for life-threatening asthma in childhood: a case-controlled study.
BACKGROUND No objective clinical risk factors exist for pediatric life-threatening asthma. OBJECTIVES In this study, we address whether persistent food allergy and degree of atopy are risk factorsExpand

Anti‐apoptotic signals of granulocyte‐macrophage colony‐stimulating factor are transduced via Jak2 tyrosine kinase in eosinophils
Cytokine‐mediated inhibition of eosinophil apoptosis is a mechanism causing tissue eosinophilia. Previously published work suggested that activation of the Lyn‐Ras‐Raf‐1‐MAP kinase pathway isExpand
