This review summarizes the existing knowledge regarding the role of receptor for advanced glycation end products in pathogenesis of psoriasis. This receptor plays a crucial role in the inflammatory response. By interacting with multiple ligands and activating several signaling mechanisms, receptor for advanced glycation end products regulates gene… (More)
Receptor for advanced glycation end-products is implicated in a development of chronic inflammatory response. Aim of this paper is to provide a review on commercial and experimental medicines that can interfere with RAGE and signaling through RAGE. We searched three bibliographical databases (PubMed, Web of Science and MEDLINE) for the publications from… (More)
A standard draft genome sequence of the white rot saprotrophic fungus Trametes hirsuta 072 (Basidiomycota, Polyporales) is presented. The genome sequence contains about 33.6 Mb assembled in 141 scaffolds with a G+C content of ~57.6%. The draft genome annotation predicts 14,598 putative protein-coding open reading frames (ORFs).
Psoriasis is a chronic recurrent disorder that affects predominantly the skin and is autoimmune in nature. Experimental models help to study the development of psoriasis in controlled conditions and investigate particular aspects of the pathological process. Many mouse models were obtained to reproduce, to a certain extent, the psoriasis signs seen in… (More)
Proinflammatory cytokines TNF, IFNG, and IL17 play an important role in eruption of psoriasis. The activation of epidermal keratinocytes with the named cytokines alters their terminal differentiation program and causes their hyperproliferation in the diseased skin. HaCaT cells, which are immortalized human keratinocytes, are often used as a cellular model… (More)
Experimental data obtained in this study had shown the involvement of A. thaliana immunophilin genes At2g16600, At4g33060, and At5g48570 in plant defense responses to the Xanthomonas campestris invasion. We had found not only that the expression levels of these genes changed upon bacterial infection, but also that the plant’s resistance to the pathogen was… (More)
Gene expression analysis for EPHA2 (EPH receptor A2), EPHB2 (EPH receptor B2), S100A9 (S100 calcium binding protein A9), PBEF (S100 calcium binding protein A8), LILRB2 (nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase), PLAUR (leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptor, subfamily B (with TM and ITIM domains), member 2), LTB (plasminogen activator, urokinase receptor),… (More)
