ABSTRACT

Alarmins known as danger associated molecular patterns(DAMPs) are released into the extracellular endogenous bi-ological mediate by white blood cells and epithelial cells when body in a state of tissue injury and inflammation or physiological stress. Immunological and adaptive immune responses are activated and strengthened by chemotaxis and activation of antigen presenting cells(APC). They are closely associated with the disease development and outcome,and have important guiding significance for clinical diagnosis and treatment.

ABSTRACT

The IL-36,which is a member of IL-1 family,consists of three ligands IL-36α,IL-36β and IL-36γ. The cytokines exert their proinflammatory effects through a specific IL-36 receptor(IL-36R),IL-36Ra is an antagonist of IL-36R.IL-36 acts as a helper,involved in dendritic cell and T cell activation, maturation, polarization, antigen presentation and stimulating inflammatory factor production,and so on.IL-36,as a new proinflammatory factor,plays a very important role in many inflammation diseases, including psoriasis,inflammatory bowel disease,arthritis,SLE,lung diseases and so on.

ABSTRACT

This study was aimed to establish an experimental mouse model of combined transgenic inhibition of both multifunctional Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) and inward rectifier potassium current (Ik1), and to observe whether the specific inhibition of both CaMKII and Ik1 can bring about any effects on cardiac remodeling. Mice were divided into 4 groups: wild type (WT), CaMKII inhibited (AC3-I), Ik1 inhibited (Kir2.1-AAA) and combined inhibition of both CaMKII and Ik1 (AC3-I+Kir2.1-AAA). Mice in each group received electrocardiogram (ECG) and echocardiography examination. ECG in the condition of isoproterenol (ISO) injection was also checked. The whole cell patch clamp technique was used to measure Ik1 and the transient outward potassium current (Ito) from enzymatically isolated myocytes of left ventricle. In the condition of basal status, no significant changes of heart rate, PR interval and QRS interval were observed. No mouse showed ventricular arrhythmias in all of the 4 groups. After ISO injection, each group presented no significant ventricular arrhythmias either. The indexes measured by M-mode (motion-mode) and two-dimensional echocardiography had no significant differences among the four groups. Ik1 in AC3-I group was significantly higher than those in other three groups (P < 0.01) because of the results brought about by CaMKII inhibition. Among the latter three groups, both Kir2.1-AAA group and AC3-I+Kir2.1-AAA group had a significant reduced Ik1 compared with that of WT group, which was due to the Ik1 inhibition (P < 0.01). Ito in AC3-I group was higher than that of the other three groups (P < 0.01), but there were no significant differences in Ito among WT, Kir2.1-AAA and AC3-I+Kir2.1-AAA groups. Thus, combined transgenic myocardial CaMKII and Ik1 inhibition eliminated the up-regulation of Ik1 in CaMKII inhibited mice, and had no effects on cardiac remodeling including heart structure and function as well as arrhythmias at the basic and ISO conditions. The results of this study may provide a basis for the further investigation of combined inhibition of CaMKII and Ik1 in pathogenic cardiac remodeling.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To determine whether 2 polymorphism sites of the high-affinity IgE receptor beta (Fc epsilon RI beta) gene were associated with allergic asthma in Han nationality of Hubei province in China.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>DNA and clinical data were obtained from allergic asthma patients and were compared with those from a group of healthy control subjects. The subjects were genotyped for the -109C/T and a coding variant Glu237Gly in Fc epsilon RI beta gene by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>(1) The genotype frequencies were 0.403 for -109T/T, 0.491 for -109T/C and 0.106 for -109C/C in allergic asthma patients in a Chinese population. No significant difference in the distribution of -109C/T polymorphism was found between allergic asthma patients and healthy control subjects; however, a homozygosity for the -109T allele was associated with increased total plasma IgE levels in patients with allergic asthma (F=7.523, P<0.01). (2) The frequency of Gly237Gly genotype was 0.051 in patient group, and 0.020 in control group. The allele frequencies of Gly237 in the patients and control were 0.236 and 0.136 respectively. There was a significant association between Gly/Gly genotype and allergic asthma. Among allergic asthma patients Gly237Gly was significantly associated with high IgE.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>These data suggested that the Gly237Gly genotype of the Fc epsilon RI beta gene conferred genetic susceptibility to allergic asthma in Chinese, which affected the total plasma IgE levels in the allergic asthma patients. And a homozygosity for the -109T allele was associated with increased total plasma IgE.</p>
