BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Since statins and angiotensin receptor blockers are a frequently prescribed combination in patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases, we tested the interactive effects of simvastatin and losartan on atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E (apoE)(-/-) mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS Apolipoprotein E(-/-) mice were fed a(More)
In this study, we investigated changes in protein expression of fish cells induced by infection of infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV) using two-dimensional electrophoresis and matrix-assisted laser desorption-time of flight proton motive force analysis and identified a novel type of salmon annexin 1 that is induced in fish cells by infection with(More)
Interleukin-6 (IL-6), which is increased in patients who are suffering from septic shock, is an important mediator of the inflammatory response. Here, we examined the priming effect of lipoteichoic acid (LTA) and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) on IL-6 production in a monocyte-like cell line. THP-1 cells were primed by treatingwith a low or high dose of LTA(More)
We studied centrifugation-mediated mechanical stress-induced tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) production in the monocyte-like cell line THP-1. The induction of TNF-alpha by mechanical stress was dependent on the centrifugation speed and produced the highest level of TNF-alpha after 1 h of stimulation. TNF-alpha production returned to normal levels(More)
