Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) is important in attracting monocytes to sites of inflammation. Besides induction of monocyte recruitment, MCP-1 can also affect chemotactic response of endothelial cells. The molecular mechanisms involved in MCP-1-induced cell migration are poorly understood. In the current investigation, we demonstrate activation(More)
The intracellular signal cascades involved in chemokine-stimulated migration of in vitro activated human peripheral blood CD4+ T-lymphocytes were investigated. IP-10-mediated chemotactic response of lymphocytes was decreased in the presence of selective inhibitors of Src-kinases (by 40–45%), PI3-kinases (35–40%), and MAP-kinases ERK1/2 (35– 40%) and p38(More)
The content of marker foxp3 of regulatory T cells and chemokines in atherosclerotic plaques of human coronary arteries was measured by the polymerase chain reaction. In vitro migration of regulatory CD4+CD25+foxp3+ cells in the CD4+ lymphocyte population from healthy donors was studied after treatment with chemokines I-309, IP-10, and SDF-1. mRNA for the(More)
The time course of inflammatory reaction markers in the blood of patients with unstable angina was studied during therapy including arixtra. Plasma concentration of monocytic chemotaxic protein-1 (MCP-1) decreased on days 2 and 3 in patients receiving arixtra and a trend to an increase in MCP-1 concentration was observed on day 7 after the drug was(More)
Rapamycin contributes to the expansion of regulatory T cells (Tregs) in vitro. We investigated CD4(+)CD25(high)CD127(low) Treg level dynamics as well as the major parameters of cell immunity and sCD25 and highly sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP) concentrations in the blood of patients after coronary stenting (CS) with sirolimus (rapamycin)-eluting stents(More)
Inflammation plays an important role in vessel wall remodeling that occurs in atherosclerosis and postangioplasty restenosis. Monocytic chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) is one of the main attractors of monocytes and some lymphocyte subsets to the damaged vessel. The aims of the study were to confirm MCP-1 participation in the development of acute coronary(More)
Inflammation is a factor involved in numerous diseases, including oncogenesis, atherosclerosis, autoimmune disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, etc. In view of this, compounds responsible for immune response formation are of special interest, because they may be used for designing new drugs. Chemotactic cytokines (chemokines), which have been discovered(More)
Malignant gliomas are most common and fatal primary brain tumors. In addition to neoplastic cells, the tumor tissue contains microglial cells and monocyte-derived macrophages. It is an established fact that monocyte recruiting promotes the tumor growth and dissemination. Monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1) is the major attractant for monocytes. We have(More)
Urokinase receptor (uPAR) associates in cis with complement receptor 3 (CR3). In the present study, we addressed whether this coupling regulates CR3-mediated phagocytosis. CR3-mediated attachment of iC3b-opsonized sheep red blood cells to human neutrophils and internalization of these cells were reduced by removal of cell-bound uPAR by(More)
