Members of the TNFSF/TNFRSF are involved in the immunoregulation of various immune reactions and diseases. Recently, LIGHT/TR2, GITRL/GITR, and TL1A/DR3 have been reported as playing roles in the inflammatory reactions in atherosclerosis, but a comparative analysis of these molecules has not been conducted. In order to compare their expression patterns, immunohistochemical analyses were performed using six human carotid endoarterectomy samples. The expression of these molecules was detected in… CONTINUE READING
