Plant immunophilins are a broadly conserved family of proteins, which carry out a variety of cellular functions. In this study, we investigated three immunophilin genes involved in the Arabidopsis thaliana response to Pseudomonas syringae infection: a cytoplasmic localized AtCYP19, a cytoplasmic and nuclear localized AtCYP57, and one nucleus directed FKBP(More)
The comparative bioinformatic analysis of psoriasis and Crohn disease pathological processes was carried out using the results of microarray experiments deposited in GEO DataSets database. Several common for both pathologies genes and molecular-genetical processes were found. It is suggested that some transcriptional factors including AP-1 system of(More)
Psoriasis is an autoimmune multifactorial dermatological disease frequently occured in European population. As for other multifactorial genetic diseases success in psoriasis treatment may be achieved due to determination of molecular genetic mechanisms of pathogenesis triggering and psoriasis candidate genes and proteins searching as targets for drugs.(More)
Using real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), we measured mRNA amounts of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs): MMP-1, MMP-2, MMP-9, and MMP-12 genes in psoriatic lesions and unaffected skin of the same patients. We observed significant (about 15-fold) increase in the expression level of matrix metalloproteinase MMP-1 and MMP-12 genes associated with(More)
This review summarizes the contribution of matrix metalloproteinases to the pathogenesis of psoriasis. In psoriasis, matrix metalloproteinases are involved in the structural changes of the epidermis via the modification of intracellular contacts and the composition of the extracellular matrix, promoting angiogenesis in the dermal blood vessels and the(More)
Three-dimensional models of psoriatic skin occupy an intermediate position between cell cultures and animal-based models. Unlike cultured cells, they closely imitate changes in cell differentiation and metabolism, which are characteristic of psoriatic lesional skin. Because 3-dimensional models exclude nonspecific influences of the surrounding organs and(More)
Expression of ATF-3 and ATF-4 genes was examined quantitatively by real-time PCR and changes in the expression of these genes in atherosclerotic lesions and in psoriatic skin were demonstrated. It was found that concomitant pathologies do not affect the expression of these genes. Opposite changes in the expression of ATF-3 and ATF-4 genes in atherosclerotic(More)
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)
