The dynamic regulation of NF-κB activity in the uterus maintains a favorable environment of cytokines necessary to prepare for pregnancy throughout the estrous cycle. Recently, the mechanisms that directly regulate the NF-κB transcriptional activity in different tissues are of growing interest. IκBNS and BCL-3 are negative nuclear regulators of NF-κB(More)
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease where the altered regulation in angiogenesis, inflammation, and proliferation of keratinocytes are the possible causes of the disease, and the transcription factor "hypoxia-inducible factor 1-alpha" (HIF-1α) is involved in the homeostasis of these three biological phenomena. In this review, the role of HIF-1α(More)
Pregnancy is a complex process where several physiological pathways interact. The down-regulated inflammatory response and the abundance of anti-inflammatory molecules during gestation may explain the acceptance of the fetus and the lack of immune response against it, even though it is a foreign tissue for the mother. NF-κB is a key regulator of the(More)
The IL-36 subfamily is a recently described group of cytokines with pro-inflammatory behavior, comprising three agonists (α, β, and γ), its receptor (R), and one antagonist (Ra). The expression and function of IL-36 subfamily members in the estrous cycle in healthy and infected pregnancy has not been described. We evaluated mRNA and protein expression of(More)
