The chemokine receptor CXCR4 and its ligand CXCL12 is overexpressed in the majority of tumors and is critically involved in the development and metastasis of these tumors. CXCR4 is expressed in malignant tumor cells whereas its ligand SDF-1 (CXCL12) is expressed mainly by cancer associated fibroblasts (CAF). Similarly to CXCR4, the chemokine CCL20 is(More)
OBJECTIVES Autocrine and paracrine chemokine/chemokine receptor-based interactions promote non-small-cell-lung-cancer (NSCLC) carcinogenesis. CCL20/CCR6 interactions are involved in prostatic and colonic malignancy pathogenesis. The expression and function of CCL20/CCR6 and its related Th-17 type immune response in NSCLC is not yet defined. We sought to(More)
C lassical NK cells are non-T cell lymphocytes lacking the expression of TCRs. These cells express a variety of cell surface markers, including CD56 in humans and NK1.1 and DX5 in mice (1). NK cells are dependent on the bone marrow (BM) 4 for development and are present as mature populations in blood, spleen, and liver (1, 2). NK cells express unique(More)
Multiple myeloma (MM) cells specifically attract peripheral-blood monocytes, while interaction of MM with bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) significantly increased monocyte recruitment (p<0.01). The CXCL12 chemokine, produced by both the MM and BMSCs, was found to be a critical regulator of monocyte migration. CXCL12 production was up-regulated under(More)
BACKGROUND The acute effect of parathyroid hormone (PTH) on phosphate transport has been reported to be mediated by rapid downregulation of sodium-phosphate transporter (NaPi-IIa) protein, but the association was observed with pharmacological doses of PTH. OBJECTIVE To explore the effects of physiological doses of PTH on NaPi-IIa protein and its(More)
