In this study, we have documented an essential role for ADP-ribosylation factor 6 (ARF6) in cell surface remodeling in response to physiological stimulus and in the down regulation of stress fiber formation. We demonstrate that the G-protein-coupled receptor agonist bombesin triggers the redistribution of ARF6- and Rac1-containing endosomal vesicles to the(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the genetic, clinical and serological characteristics of systemic sclerosis (SSc)-rheumatoid arthritis (RA) overlap syndrome. METHODS Clinical manifestations and immunolaboratory features of 22 SSc-RA patients were assessed. The HLA-DR genotype of the 22 SSc-RA patients determined by SSP-PCR was compared with that of 38 SSc(More)
Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) is one of the initial and rate-limiting enzymes involved in the catabolism of the essential amino acid tryptophan. In cultured cells, the induction of IDO leads to depletion of tryptophan and tryptophan starvation. Recent studies suggest that modulation of tryptophan concentration via IDO plays a fundamental role in innate(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the longer-term efficacy of etanercept in patients with severe and advanced active AS. METHODS Seventy-seven patients who completed the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled 12-week SPINE study enrolled in a 12-week open-label extension and received s.c. etanercept 50 mg once weekly. The etanercept/etanercept group received a(More)
