The purpose of this study was to define the role of secretory phospholipase A2 (sPLA2), calcium-independent PLA2, and cytosolic PLA2 (cPLA2) in arachidonic acid (AA) release from fMLP-stimulated human neutrophils. While fMLP induced the release of extracellular sPLA2 activity and AA, 70% of sPLA2 activity remained associated with the cell. Treatment with(More)
The newly discovered intracytosolic pattern recognition receptor nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain 2 (NOD2) has been studied as an important indicator of T helper 2 (Th2) inflammation, and its effect on regulatory T (Treg) cells is likely to modulate the immune response. In this study, we attempted to study the expression of NOD2 and its impact in(More)
