Although the CpG DNA immune response mediated by Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) has been extensively studied in a number of immune cells, the response to CpG DNA in endothelial cells (EC) is not well understood. In this study, we show that both mouse and rat lung EC display constitutive expression of TLR9 mRNA. Exposure to CpG DNA induced a potent(More)
Pulmonary endothelium plays an important role in the maintenance of normal pulmonary physiology and its dysfunction is involved in a number of pulmonary diseases. Correction of endothelial dysfunction via antisense oligodeoxynucleotides (ODN) is dependent on the development of a delivery vehicle that can efficiently deliver the ODN to pulmonary endothelium(More)
