NF-Y binds a CCAAT motif found in many eukaryotic polymerase II-dependent promoters. In the HLA-DRA promoter it has been demonstrated that stereo-specific alignment between this motif and the upstream elements X1 and X2 is required for activation. To study the underlying mechanism for this requirement, a panel of transfected cell lines that maintained(More)
The Cbfa1/Runx2 (referred to herein as Cbfa1) transcription factor has been shown to be essential for osteoblast differentiation and bone formation during embryogenesis. PTH given intermittently is a proven bone anabolic agent. Here, we investigated whether PTH regulates the expression and/or activity of Cbfa1 in osteoblastic cells and in a rat metatarsal(More)
OBJECTIVE To review the toxicity issues of commonly used antirheumatic drugs in pregnancy and lactation. METHODS A review of the medical literature using Medline database via Ovid was performed to identify the toxicities of antirheumatic drugs in pregnancy and lactation. RESULTS Many rheumatologic diseases in women often first present during the(More)
BACKGROUND Several studies have noted the significance of measuring anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP) antibodies in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) as an important indicator for destructive disease, as is the case in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). While the role of anti-CCP antibodies in RA and JIA has become better understood, the identity of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) comprises a poorly understood group of chronic autoimmune diseases with variable clinical outcomes. We investigated whether the synovial fluid (SF) proteome could distinguish a subset of patients in whom disease extends to affect a large number of joints. METHODS SF samples from 57 patients were obtained(More)
Purpose Pediatric-onset systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients are prone to develop major organ involvement and a more severe disease course than adult-onset SLE. Early management of the disease is necessary to prevent further complications, which can partly be accomplished by monitoring autoantibody levels and understanding their significance in the(More)
BACKGROUND To determine the prevalence and significance of anti-citrullinated vimentin and anti-citrullinated type II collagen antibodies and elucidate their role in the disease process of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). METHODS Sera were obtained from 95 patients with various subtypes of JIA, 19 systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients, and 10(More)
Several types of voltage sensitive calcium channels (VSCC) including types N and Ln are present in varying degrees in neurons from different locations and they appear to differ from the Lm type VSCC on muscle cells. Omega conotoxin blocks N and Ln channels but not Lm channels. Verapamil blocks Ln and Lm but not N channels. The purpose of this study was to(More)
