BACKGROUND The activated NLRP3 inflammasome is associated with the etiology of fibrotic diseases. The role of inflammasomes in SSc is still poorly understood. OBJECTIVES To determine the expression of NLRP3 (nucleotide-binding domain, leucine-rich-repeat-containing family, pyrin domain-containing 3) in the skin of patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc)(More)
AIM To assess the functional consequence of the hepatocyte nuclear factor 1alpha gene (HNF-1alpha) G574S variant previously proposed as a diabetes susceptibility allele, in a group of Mexican Type 2 diabetic patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). METHODS The transcriptional activity of the HNF-1alpha G574S recombinant protein on the human insulin(More)
1 The role of the extraendothelial and constitutive isoforms of cyclo-oxygenase-2 (COX-2) in the contractile effect of angiotensin II (Ang II) was investigated using thoracic and abdominal aortic rings without endothelium from young Wistar rats. 2 Ang II elicited similar contractions in both aortic segments, and the effect was inhibited by pretreatment with(More)
