Background: A substantial proportion of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients discontinue interferonbeta (IFNβ) treatment due to various adverse effects, most of which emerge at the early phase after initiation of the treatment and then diminish with time. At present, the molecular mechanism underlying IFNβ-related adverse effects remains largely unknown. The(More)
BACKGROUND A substantial proportion of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients discontinue interferon-beta (IFNbeta) treatment due to various adverse effects, most of which emerge at the early phase after initiation of the treatment and then diminish with time.

The 14-3-3 protein family consists of seven isoforms, most of which are expressed abundantly in neurons and glial cells, although the sigma isoform, a p53 target gene originally identified as an epithelium-specific marker, has not been identified in the human central nervous system. Here, we show that human astrocytes in culture expressed 14-3-3sigma under(More)
The 14-3-3 protein family consists of acidic 30-kDa proteins composed of seven isoforms in mammalian cells, expressed abundantly in neurons and glial cells of the central nervous system (CNS). The 14-3-3 isoforms form a dimer that acts as a molecular adaptor interacting with key signaling components involved in cell proliferation, transformation, and(More)
