Circadian rhythms are endogenous and need to be continuously entrained (synchronized) with the environment. Entrainment includes both coupling internal oscillators to external periodic changes as well as synchrony between the central clock and peripheral oscillators, which have been shown to exhibit different phases and resynchronization speed. Temporal(More)
Systemic low doses of the endotoxin lipopolysaccharide (LPS) administered at CT15 (circadian time 12 corresponds to locomotor activity onset) induce phase delays of locomotor activity rhythms in mice. To evaluate if this effect was mediated by the Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4), our present aim was to characterize the circadian behavior and LPS-induced(More)
Elevated levels of interleukin 10 (IL-10) were previously described for chronically hepatitis C virus (HCV)-infected patients. We determined by a sequence-specific oligonucleotide probing technique the IL-10 promoter genotypes in 286 Argentinean HCV patients grouped according to disease outcome. The GG genotype (position -1082) is known to be associated(More)
UNLABELLED Systemic low doses of the endotoxin lipopolysaccharide (LPS, 100 µg/kg) administered during the early night induce phase-delays of locomotor activity rhythms in mice. Our aim was to evaluate the role of tumor necrosis factor (Tnf)-alpha and its receptor 1/p55 (Tnfr1) in the modulation of LPS-induced circadian effects on the suprachiasmatic(More)
The immune and the circadian systems interact in a bidirectional fashion. The master circadian oscillator, located in the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) of the hypothalamus, responds to peripheral and local immune stimuli, such as proinflammatory cytokines and bacterial endotoxin. Astrocytes exert several immune functions in the CNS, and there is growing(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND The relation between circadian dysregulation and cancer incidence and progression has become a topic of major interest over the last decade. Also, circadian timing has gained attention regarding the use of chronopharmacology-based therapeutics. Given its lack of functional T lymphocytes, due to a failure in thymus development, mice(More)
