BACKGROUND Hyper-IgE syndrome (HIES) is a rare, autosomal-dominant immunodeficiency characterized by eczema, Staphylococcus aureus skin abscesses, pneumonia with pneumatocele formation, Candida infections, and skeletal/connective tissue abnormalities. Recently it was shown that heterozygous signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3)(More)
The purpose of this study was to provide a better understanding of the regulatory role of the nuclear steroid receptor on the nuclear factor of kappa light polypeptide gene enhancer in B cells (NFkappaB) in mouse heart. NFkappaB regulates many nuclear genes and has been associated with many human cardiac diseases. NFkappaB's protein regulator gene, nuclear(More)
A peroxisome proliferator-actived receptor (PPAR) response element (RE) in the promoter region of the adaptor-related protein complex 2, alpha 2 subunit (AP2α2) of mouse heart has been identified. The steroid hormone nuclear PPARs and the retinoid X receptors (RXRs) are important transcriptional factors that regulate gene expression, cell differentiation(More)
