Cutting Edge: 1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 Is a Direct Inducer of Antimicrobial Peptide Gene Expression1
The hormonal form of vitamin D3, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3), is an immune system modulator and induces expression of the TLR coreceptor CD14. 1,25(OH)2D3 signals through the vitamin DExpand

BAP31 Interacts with Sec61 Translocons and Promotes Retrotranslocation of CFTRΔF508 via the Derlin-1 Complex
BAP31 is an endoplasmic reticulum protein-sorting factor that associates with newly synthesized integral membrane proteins and controls their fate (i.e., egress, retention, survival, or degradation).Expand
