The chemokine CX3CL1/fractalkine is expressed by neurons as a transmembrane-anchored protein that can be cleaved to yield a soluble isoform. However, the roles for these two types of endogenous CX3CL1 in neurodegenerative pathophysiology remain elusive. As such, it has been difficult to delineate the function of the two isoforms of CX3CL1, as both are(More)
Atherosclerosis is a lipid related chronic inflammatory disease in which immune mechanisms play a pivotal part. Its lesion is filled with large numbers of immune cells. In 1995 dendritic cells (DCs) were identified in atherosclerotic plaques and thought to play an important part in atherogenesis. DCs express MHCI and ll, HLA-DR, CD1a, ICAM-1 and VCAM1 on(More)
<p>Granular parakeratosis, originally named axillary granular parakeratosis, is an uncommon disease with an unclear etiology. It is thought to result from defective processing of profillagrin to fillagrin, causing retention of keratohyaline granules in the epidermis. A myriad of causative factors has been proposed, including friction, moisture, heat, and(More)
