Relevance of the Myeloid Differentiation Factor 88 (MyD88) on RANKL, OPG, and Nod Expressions Induced by TLR and IL-1R Signaling in Bone Marrow Stromal Cells
The myeloid differentiation factor 88 (MyD88) plays a pivotal role in Toll-like receptor (TLR)- and interleukin-1 receptor (IL-1R)-induced osteoclastogenesis. We examined the role of MyD88 on p38 mitogen-activated protein ...
Comparison of effects of clodronate and zoledronic acid on the repair of maxilla surgical wounds - histomorphometric, receptor activator of nuclear factor-kB ligand, osteoprotegerin, von Willebrand factor, and caspase-3 evaluation
(John Wiley & Sons A/SPorto Alegre, 2012)
BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to compare clodronate and zoledronic acid regarding their influence on the repair of surgical wounds in maxillae (soft tissue wound and tooth extraction) and their relation to ...
Helix 12 Dynamics and Thyroid Hormone Receptor Activity: Experimental and Molecular Dynamics Studies of Ile280 Mutants
(Academic Press Ltd- Elsevier Science LtdLondonInglaterra, 2011)
Over-expression of forkhead box P3 and its association with receptor activator of nuclear factor-k B ligand, interleukin (IL) - 17, IL-10 and transforming growth factor-b during the progression of chronic periodontitis
(John Wiley, 2009)
Aim: T regulatory (Treg) cells have been detected in periodontitis lesions, and forkhead box P3 (Foxp3) expression has been negatively correlated to receptor activator of nuclear factor-k B ligand (RANKL). The aim of ...
Helix 12 dynamics and thyroid hormone receptor activity: experimental and molecular dynamics studies of Ile280 mutants
Nuclear hormone receptors (NRs) form a family of transcription factors that mediate cellular responses initiated by hormone binding. It is generally recognized that the structure and dynamics of the C-terminal helix 12 ...
Biophysical Characterization of Interactions Involving Importin-α during Nuclear Import
Proteins containing the classical nuclear localization sequences (NLSs) are imported into the nucleus by the importin-α/β heterodimer. Importin-α contains the NLS binding site, whereas importin-β mediates the translocation ...
