Cytokines can be functionally active across species barriers. Bovine IL-10 has an amino acid sequence identity with human IL-10 of 76.8%. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate whether bovine IL-10 has immunomodulatory activities on human monocytes and dendritic cells. Peripheral blood monocytes were isolated from healthy donors, and used directly(More)
Archaeal C/D box small RNAs (sRNAs) are homologues of eukaryotic C/D box small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs). Their main function is guiding 2'-O-ribose methylation of nucleotides in rRNAs. The methylation requires the pairing of an sRNA antisense element to an rRNA target site with formation of an RNA-RNA duplex. The temporary formation of such a duplex during(More)
