OBJECTIVE A genomic region near the CDKN2A locus, encoding p16(INK4a), has been associated to type 2 diabetes and atherosclerotic vascular disease, conditions in which inflammation plays an important role. Recently, we found that deficiency of p16(INK4a) results in decreased inflammatory signaling in murine macrophages and that p16(INK4a) influences the(More)
Human group IIA secreted phospholipase A(2) (sPLA(2)-IIA) has been characterized in numerous inflammatory and neoplastic conditions. sPLA(2)-IIA can either promote or inhibit cell growth depending on the cellular type and the specific injury. We have previously demonstrated that exogenous sPLA(2)-IIA, by engagement to a membrane structure, induces(More)
