CXCL13 production in B cells via Toll-like receptor/lymphotoxin receptor signaling is involved in lymphoid neogenesis in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
RATIONALE Little is known about what drives the appearance of lymphoid follicles (LFs), which may function as lymphoid organs in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In animal infectionExpand

Tolerogenic signaling by pulmonary CD1c+ dendritic cells induces regulatory T cells in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease by IL-27/IL-10/inducible costimulator ligand.
BACKGROUND Increased mortality rates in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are largely due to severe infectious exacerbations. Impaired respiratory immunity is linked to theExpand

Activin-A co-opts IRF4 and AhR signaling to induce human regulatory T cells that restrain asthmatic responses
Significance Here, we demonstrate that the cytokine activin-A instructs the differentiation of human IL-10–producing type 1 regulatory T (Tr1)-like cells that exhibit strongly suppressive functionsExpand

Innate immunity as the orchestrator of allergic airway inflammation and resolution in asthma.
The respiratory system is constantly in direct contact with the environment and, has therefore, developed strong innate and adaptive immune responses to combat pathogens. Unlike adaptive immunityExpand

Characterization of intracellular HLA-DR, DM and DO profile in K562 and HL-60 leukemic cells.
Surface class-II antigen expression fires-up the antigen presentation process and development of immune response. The absence of surface HLA-DR is used in various systems to avoid immune recognition.Expand

Comparative analysis of FV vectors with human α- or β-globin gene regulatory elements for the correction of β-thalassemia
β-Globin locus control region (LCR) sequences have been widely used for the regulated expression of the human β-globin gene in therapeutic viral vectors. In this study, we compare the expression ofExpand

Activin-A is overexpressed in severe asthma and is implicated in angiogenic processes
Activin-A is a pleiotropic cytokine that regulates allergic inflammation. Its role in the regulation of angiogenesis, a key feature of airways remodelling in asthma, remains unexplored. Our objectiveExpand

Dendritic cells conditioned by activin A–induced regulatory T cells exhibit enhanced tolerogenic properties and protect against experimental asthma
Background: Previously, we demonstrated that regulatory T (Treg) cells induced by the cytokine activin‐A suppress TH2‐mediated allergic responses and linked airway disease. Still, the effects ofExpand

Activin-A in the regulation of immunity in health and disease.
The TGF-β superfamily of cytokines plays pivotal roles in the regulation of immune responses protecting against or contributing to diseases, such as, allergy, autoimmunity and cancer. Activin-A, aExpand

Lung B cell-derived CXCL13 is critical for lymphoid follicle formation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Lymphoid follicles (LFs) that have a similar organization to lymph nodes are found in small airways and alveoli in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), but the mechanism of their developmentExpand
