RATIONALE Receptor expression dictates the spectrum of chemokine actions on immunocompetent cells. We have previously shown that the chemokine receptor CXCR3 is highly expressed by T-helper type 1 (Th1) cells infiltrating the lungs of patients with sarcoidosis. OBJECTIVES The evaluation of the role of Bonzo/CXCR6 and its ligand CXCL16 in the pathogenesis(More)
In B-Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (B-CLL) kinase Lyn is overexpressed, active, abnormally distributed, and part of a cytosolic complex involving hematopoietic lineage cell-specific protein 1 (HS1). These aberrant properties of Lyn could partially explain leukemic cells' defective apoptosis, directly or through its substrates, for example, HS1 that has been(More)
This study aimed to assess platelets as a possible model for screening the accumulation of mitochondrial DNA mutations, particularly during normal ageing. For this purpose we isolated platelets from young and old donors selected by lack of systemic and haematological diseases. We studied the accumulation of a particular deletion (4977-bp deletion) that(More)
BACKGROUND TNF-like ligand 1A (TL1A), a recently recognized member of the TNF superfamily, and its death domain receptor 3 (DR3), firstly identified for their relevant role in T lymphocyte homeostasis, are now well-known mediators of several immune-inflammatory diseases, ranging from rheumatoid arthritis to inflammatory bowel diseases to psoriasis, whereas(More)
Recent findings indicated that the excitotoxicity of glutamate analogues was prevented in the mammalian nervous system by N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) antagonists. The neurodegenerative effects of kainic acid, and the putative protection of MK-801 and 6,7-dinitroquinoxaline-2,3-dione (DNQX), were investigated by morphological studies showing the toxicity of(More)
The toxicity of 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine, intravitreally injected in goldfish eye, involves interplexiform retinal neurons and depletes tyrosine hydroxylase immunoreactivity and dopamine levels. This induced neurotoxicity was prevented by the concomitant administration in non-toxic doses (10 micrograms) of quinolinic acid, an endogenous(More)
