Expression and in vitro assessment of tumorigenicity for NOD1 and NOD2 receptors in breast cancer cell lines
(BioMed Central, 2018)
Abstract Objective Immune-related pathways have been frequently associated to tumorigenesis. NOD1 and NOD2 are innate immune receptors responsible for sensing a subset of ...
Nucleotide sequence of the Rhizobium etli nods gene
Bacteria of the genera Rhizobium, Bradyrhizobium and Azorhizobium can develop nitrogen-fixing nodules on leguminous plants in a host-specific way. The first stage of this interaction leads to the activation of ...
The pattern recognition receptors Nod1 and Nod2 account for neutrophil recruitment to the lungs of mice infected with Legionella pneumophila
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2010)
The intracellular bacterium Legionella pneumophila induces a severe form of pneumonia called Legionnaires diseases, which is characterized by a strong neutrophil (NE) infiltrate to the lungs of infected individuals. Although ...
Opening the "black box" of nodD3, nodD4 and nodD5 genes of Rhizobium tropici strain CIAT 899.
(BMC Genomics, v. 16, n. 1, p. 864, Oct. 2015., 2015)
NOD1 in the modulation of host–microbe interactions and inflammatory bone resorption in the periodontal disease model
Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory condition characterized by destruction of non-mineralized and mineralized connective tissues. It is initiated and maintained by a dysbiosis of the bacterial biofilm adjacent to teeth ...
Role of NOD2 and RIP2 in host-microbe interactions with Gram-negative bacteria: Insights from the periodontal disease model
NOD2 is a member of the NLR family of proteins that participate in the activation of the innate immune response. RIP2 is a downstream kinase activated by both NOD1 and NOD2. There is scarcity of information regarding the ...
Effects of experimental diabetes on the structure and ultrastructure of the coagulating gland of C57BL/6J and NOD mice
Diabetes mellitus can lead to reproductive disorders that in turn result in weakened fertility brought about by morphofunctional changes in the testes and accessory sex glands. However, doubts persist concerning the basic ...
VIP limits LPS-induced nitric oxide production through IL-10 in NOD mice macrophages
(Elsevier Science, 2007-10)
The spontaneous non obese diabetic (NOD) mouse model of Sjögren's syndrome provides a valuable tool to study the onset and progression of both autoimmune response and secretory dysfunction. Vasoactive intestinal peptide ...
Anti-tissue transglutaminase antibody inhibits apoptotic cell clearance by macrophages in pregnant NOD mice
(Elsevier Ireland, 2013-12)
Autoimmunity is a feature of celiac disease (CD) with tissue transglutaminase (tTG) as a major autoantigen. A correlation between gynecological-obstetric disorders in CD patients and the presence of circulating antibodies ...
