BACKGROUND Mutations in the transcription factor SOX18 are responsible for specific cardiovascular defects in humans and mice. In order to gain insight into the molecular basis of its action, we identified target genes of SOX18 and analyzed one, MMP7, in detail. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS SOX18 was expressed in HUVEC using a recombinant adenoviral(More)
X-linked inhibitior of apoptosis (XIAP) is known as a potent inhibitor of apoptosis, but more recently has been shown to also act as a modulator of the nuclear factor kB (NF-kappaB) signaling pathway. To investigate whether XIAP also affects other signalling pathways, we studied the transcriptional regulation of interleukin 6 (IL-6), a gene that is strongly(More)
Myeloperoxidase is abundantly present in inflammatory diseases where activation of monocytes/macrophages and T-cell-mediated immune response occurs. The potent oxidant hypochlorous acid (HOCl), generated by the myeloperoxidase-H(2)O(2)-chloride system of activated phagocytes, converts low-density lipoprotein (LDL) into a proinflammatory lipoprotein(More)
Export of macromolecules via extracellular membrane-derived vesicles (MVs) plays an important role in the biology of Gram-negative bacteria. Gram-positive bacteria have also recently been reported to produce MVs; however, the composition and mechanisms governing vesiculogenesis in Gram-positive bacteria remain undefined. Here, we describe MV production in(More)
