Autosomal recessive interleukin-12 receptor β1 (IL-12Rβ1) deficiency has been described as the most common cause of Mendelian susceptibility to mycobacterial disease (MSMD), characterized by clinical disease due to weakly virulent mycobacteria such as Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccines and environmental mycobacteria (EM) in children who are normally(More)
We have performed proteomic analysis in the cerebrospinal fluid in an animal model of Parkinson's disease induced by axotomy of the medial forebrain bundle. In this model, the degeneration of dopaminergic neurons was completed in 14 days, with a loss of about 50% dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra and a loss of more than 80% dopamine terminals in(More)
A full-length cDNA clone (LeST3), encoding a putative tomato sugar transporter, was isolated from mycorrhizal roots by using a PCR-based approach. Based on sequence similarity, conserved motifs and predicted membrane topology, LeST3 was classified as a putative monosaccharide transporter of the sugar transporter subgroup of the major facilitator(More)
Proteins differentially expressed in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients versus Normal controls were identified by 2-DE and MALDI-MS. Thus, S100A9 expression was significantly increased in SLE PBMCs relative to Normal PBMCs at both mRNA and protein levels. Increased S100A9 levels in SLE PBMCs(More)
The aim of the present study was to explore the potential for using vermicompost from olive-mill waste as an organic amendment for enhanced bioremediation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)-contaminated soils. The focus was to analyse the genetic potential and the naphthalene dioxygenase (NDO) expression of the bacterial communities involved in the(More)
Kinases have been implicated in the immunopathological mechanisms of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). v-akt murine-thymoma viral-oncogene-homolog 1 (AKT1) and mitogen-activated-protein-kinase 1 (MAPK1) gene expressions in peripheral mononuclear cells from thirteen SLE patients with inactive or mild disease were evaluated using quantitative real-time(More)
UNLABELLED Collagen type II-induced arthritis (CIA) is an inflammatory and autoimmune disease. Spleen protein extracts were subjected to 2D-DiGE and MS-MALDI-TOF/TOF analysis to identify protein species that differ in abundance in CD38-KO versus B6 WT mice either with arthritis or with inflammation. Using multivariate analyses, in Col-II-immunized mice, 23(More)
In this article, we study the effects of ethanol intake during pregnancy and lactation on hepatic and pancreatic elongation factor-2 (EF-2) of 21 d old progeny. At the same time, the effect of ethanol on the level of other relevant hepatic proteins was determined using proteomic analysis. The results show that ethanol not only produces a general increase of(More)
BACKGROUND A role for the innate immune system in driving the autoimmune T cell cascade in psoriasis has been proposed. Toll-like receptors-(TLR)-2 and -4 play a role in inflammation, atherosclerosis, and their specific role in psoriasis remains unclear. OBJECTIVE To evaluate TLR2 and TLR4 gene expression levels in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from(More)
We have evaluated the effect of N,N-bis (2-chloroethyl)-N-nitrosourea (BCNU), an inhibitor of glutathione reductase (GR), on the oxidative status along with the integrity of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic system of the rat. The oxidative status was studied by the quantification of carbonyl groups coupled to protein homogenates. Moreover, the specific(More)
