Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) has been implicated in angiogenesis, inflammation, cancerogenesis, neurological excitability and immune regulation and is synthesized by two different sphingosine kinases (SphK). It was suggested that mice lacking the gene for SphK1 exhibit no obvious phenotype, because SphK2 compensates for its absence. However, recent(More)
Experimentally, initial steps of leucocyte extravasation, including tethering and rolling, are analysed in endothelial cell flow chambers. Given the complexity and speed of endothelial-immune cell interaction, computer-aided advances of this analysis are highly desirable. Herein, we compared two established methods, hand counting and tracking software, with(More)
The chemokine receptors CXCR3 and CXCR4 are primarily involved in memory Th1 cell-driven autoimmune diseases. Although recent studies in chronic inflammatory disease showed therapeutic success using combined blockade, details of CXCR3 and CXCR4 synergism are not understood. In this investigation, we intended to unravel the interaction of these chemokine(More)
