INTRODUCTION RP105 is a Toll-like receptor homolog expressed on B cells, dendritic cells (DCs), and macrophages. We investigated the role of RP105 in the development of collagen-induced arthritis (CIA). METHODS CIA was induced in RP105-deficient DBA/1 mice and the incidence and arthritis index were analyzed. The cytokine production by spleen cells was(More)
Uterine carcinosarcoma (UCS) represents a true example of cancer associated with epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), which exhibits cancer stem cell (CSC)-like traits. Both Sox and β-catenin signal transductions play key roles in the regulation of EMT/CSC properties, but little is known about their involvement in UCS tumorigenesis. Herein, we focused(More)
This study aimed to investigate phenotype of RP105(-) B cell subsets in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Flow cytometry was used for phenotyping RP105-negaive B cell subsets. Based on CD19, RP105, and CD138 expression, RP105(-) B cells consist of at least 5 subsets of late B cells, including CD19(+)RP105(int), CD19(+) RP105(-), CD19(low)(More)
