Magnetosomes eliminate intracellular reactive oxygen species in Magnetospirillum gryphiswaldense MSR-1.
Magnetotactic bacteria synthesize magnetic particles called magnetosomes that cause them to orient to their external magnetic fields. However, the physiological significance and other possibleExpand

Role of STIM1/Orai1-mediated store-operated Ca²⁺ entry in airway smooth muscle cell proliferation.
Hyperplasia of airway smooth muscle cells (ASMCs) is a characteristic change of chronic asthma patients. However, the underlying mechanisms that trigger this process are not yet completelyExpand

CD8+ Treg cells suppress CD8+ T cell-responses by IL-10-dependent mechanism during H5N1 influenza virus infection
Although Treg‐cell‐mediated suppression during infection or autoimmunity has been described, functions of Treg cells during highly pathogenic avian influenza virus infection remain poorlyExpand

Intranasal co-administration with the mouse zona pellucida 3 expressing construct and its coding protein induces contraception in mice.
The zona pellucida 3 (ZP3), an autoantigen, once used to develop contraceptive vaccine has been faced a safety issue. Avoiding its pathogenic T cell activation, we intranasally co-delivered the mZP3Expand

Enhancement of humoral and cellular responses to HBsAg DNA vaccination by immunization with praziquantel through inhibition TGF-beta/Smad2,3 signaling.
Praziquantel (PZQ), which is used to treat all forms of schistosomiasis, has been shown to induce strong T cell activities and decrease T regulatory cell levels. In our study, we investigated whetherExpand
