A key challenge of functional genomics today is to generate well-annotated data sets that can be interpreted across different platforms and technologies. Large-scale functional genomics data often fail to connect to standard experimental approaches of gene characterization in individual laboratories. Furthermore, a lack of universal annotation standards for(More)
Rat bronchoalveolar cells (99% alveolar macrophages (AM] were obtained by bronchoalveolar lavage and examined for their content of bombesin-like immunoreactivity (BLI) by radioimmunoassay (RIA), immunocytochemistry and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) analysis. Rat AM contained and released in their culture media significant levels of BLI, the(More)
Dectin-1, is a type II transmembrane receptor protein which contains a single extracellular CTLD (C-type lectin domain), stalk, transmembrane domain and an ITAM (immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motifs) in its cytoplasmic tail. Dectin-1 has the ability to recognize fungal β-glucans, which are carbohydrate PAMPs found predominantly in fungal cell(More)
The present study was undertaken to investigate the effect of iron dextran treatment on polyamine oxidase (PAO) activity, iron accumulation, and lipid peroxidation in livers and hearts of rats. PAO catalyzes oxidative deamination of polyamines, the cellular aliphatic cations. This reaction produces highly toxic hydrogen peroxide, 3-acetamidopropanal, and(More)
The initial interactions between macrophages and particles on alveolar surfaces could be significant events in the pathogenesis of certain lung diseases, since these cells are known to secrete a variety of inflammatory mediators and growth factors. It has been determined that the protein and lipid fractions of the extracellular alveolar lining layer (ALL)(More)
