Pentraxins are a family of multimeric pattern-recognition proteins highly conserved in evolution. Based on the primary structure of the subunit, the pentraxins are divided into two groups: short pentraxins and long pentraxins. C-reactive protein and serum amyloid P-component are classic short pentraxins produced in the liver, whereas the prototype of the long pentraxin family is PTX3. Innate immunity cells and vascular cells produce PTX3 in response to proinflammatory signals and Toll-like… Expand

Pentraxins: Multifunctional proteins at the interface of innate immunity and inflammation
Pentraxins are a family of multimeric pattern recognition proteins highly conserved in evolution. On the basis of the primary structure of the protomer, pentraxins are divided into two groups: shortExpand
The yin-yang of long pentraxin PTX3 in inflammation and immunity
TLDR
The general properties of CRP andPTX3 are reviewed, emphasizing the differences between the two molecules and the regulatory functions exerted by PTX3 in innate immunity and inflammation. Expand
The long pentraxin PTX3 at the crossroads between innate immunity and tissue remodelling.
TLDR
A number of predominantly non-coding polymorphisms have been identified in the PTX3 gene which, when associated in particular haplotypes, have been shown to be relevant in clinical conditions including infection and fertility. Expand
Pentraxins in innate immunity: lessons from PTX3
TLDR
Evidence has been presented that soluble PRMs participate in the regulation of inflammatory responses and interact with the cellular arm of the innate immune system, providing a paradigm for the mode of action of humoral innate immunity. Expand
Host-protective effect of circulating pentraxin 3 (PTX3) and complex formation with neutrophil extracellular traps
TLDR
A proteomic study of PTX3 ligands in septic patients revealed thatPTX3 forms a complex with certain NET component proteins, which suggests a role for PTx3 in which it facilitates the efficiency of anti-microbial protein pathogen clearance by interacting with both pathogens and anti- microbial proteins.

An integrated view of humoral innate immunity: pentraxins as a paradigm.
TLDR
The innate immune system consists of a cellular and a humoral arm which also includes complement components, collectins, and ficolins and is an integrated system consisting of different molecules and sharing functional outputs with antibodies. Expand
Pathogen Recognition by the Long Pentraxin PTX3
TLDR
The long pentraxin PTX3 is a prototypic soluble PRM that is produced at sites of infection and inflammation by both somatic and immune cells and exerts important functions at the cross-road between innate immunity, inflammation, and female fertility. Expand

TLDR
The association of circulating PTX3 with components of the neutrophil extracellular traps in sepsis suggests a role forPTX3 in host defense and as a potential diagnostic target. Expand
