Heme oxygenase (HO), the main enzyme deputed to heme metabolism, has been identified as two main isoforms called HO-1 and HO-2 both present in the central nervous system. Heme oxygenase has been shown to regulate the hypothalamic release of neuropeptides such as corticotrophin-releasing hormone and arginin-vasopressin. The aim of this study was to(More)
CD40 is a 50 kDa molecule, a member of the tumor necrosis factor/nerve growth factor receptor family. It is expressed on B cells, monocytes, dendritic cells and various malignant cells. While the critical relevance of this molecule in T cell-dependent B cell activation is already established, the biological role of CD40-CD154 interaction in(More)
Heme oxygenase (HO), the main enzyme deputed to heme metabolism, has been identified as two main isoforms called HO-1 and HO-2. HO-1 is inducible and plays a main role in the cellular oxidant/antioxidant balance whereas HO-2 is constitutive and involved in the physiological metabolism of heme. However, it is noteworthy to mention that HO contribute to the(More)
