The ability of type I IFNs to increase susceptibility to certain bacterial infections correlates with downregulation of myeloid cell surface IFNGR, the receptor for the type II IFN (IFN-γ), and reduced myeloid cell responsiveness to IFN-γ. In this study, we show that the rapid reductions in mouse and human myeloid cell surface IFNGR1 expression that occur(More)
Cyclic-di-GMP and cyclic-di-AMP are second messengers produced by bacteria and influence bacterial cell survival, differentiation, colonization, biofilm formation, virulence, and bacteria-host interactions. In this study, we show that in both RAW264.7 macrophage cells and primary bone marrow-derived macrophages, the production of IFN-β and IL-6, but not(More)
Steroid hormone receptors are multi-domain proteins composed of conserved well-structured regions, such as ligand (LBD) and DNA binding domains (DBD), plus other naturally unstructured regions including the amino-terminal domain (NTD) and the hinge region between the LBD and DBD. The hinge is more than just a flexible region between the DBD and LBD and is(More)
