Interferon (IFN)-alpha upregulates serotonin (5-HT) uptake and serotonin transporter (5-HTT) messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) expression in immune cells, which implies the mechanism underlying IFN-alpha-induced depression. However, the signal transduction of this effect remains unclear. We investigated whether the effects of IFN-alpha on the functions of(More)
BACKGROUND The Janus kinase-2 (JAK-2) V617F mutation has been recently reported in patients with myeloproliferative disorders (MPD), which is believed to underlie growth factor hypersensitivity displayed by haematopoietic progenitors in these disorders. However, its frequency has been rarely determined in Taiwanese patients. METHODS The frequency of(More)
All-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) can induce acute respiratory distress syndrome in patients with acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL). The current study investigated the role of monocyte chemotactic protein (MCP)-1 in the chemotactic transmigration of ATRA-treated NB4 (ATRA-NB4) APL cells toward A549 alveolar epithelial cells. NB4 and A549 cells were(More)
