Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) is a serum protein which initiates innate immune responses to microbial pathogens by binding to non-self surface oligosaccharides. MBL deficiency is the most common congenital immunodeficiency of human and has been shown to predispose to infections, particularly in children and immune compromised. In a matched case-control study(More)
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory condition. Inhibition of the ubiquitin-proteasome system offers promise as a anti-inflammatory strategy, being responsible for the degradation of key proteins involved in crucial cellular functions, including gene expression in inflammation (e.g. inhibitory IkappaB-alpha and the endogenous MAPK deactivator - MKP-1). As MKP-1(More)
Mitogen activated protein kinase phosphatase-1 (MKP-1) has emerged as an important protein mediating breast cancer oncogenesis and chemoresistance to cancer chemotherapies, especially proteasome inhibitors. In this in vitro study, we utilized the breast cancer epithelial cell lines MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231, in comparison to MCF-10A control cells, to examine the(More)
