Mutations in the genes encoding hepatocyte nuclear factor 4alpha (HNF-4alpha) and HNF-1alpha impair insulin secretion and cause maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY). HNF-4alpha is known to be an essential positive regulator of HNF-1alpha. More recent data demonstrates that HNF-4alpha expression is dependent on HNF-1alpha in mouse pancreatic islets(More)
Ficolin-2 is a serum opsonin, which has been shown to be a pattern recognition molecule in the lectin complement activation pathway. Because innate immune mechanisms are involved in maintaining tissue homeostasis we hypothesized that Ficolin-2 also participate in the clearance of dying host cells. We found that Ficolin-2 binds to late apoptotic cells, as(More)
