Effects of nitric oxide on neutrophil influx depends on the tissue: role of leukotriene B(4) and adhesion molecules
(WILEY-BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, INC, 2009)
Background and purpose: We investigated the effect of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibition on polymorphonuclear cell (PMN) influx in zymosan or lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced arthritis and peritonitis. Experimental ...

Kanashiro A, Pessini AC, Machado RR, Malvar DC, Aguiar FA, Soares DM, Vale ML, Souza GEP. Characterization and pharmacological evaluation of febrile response on zymosan-induced arthritis in rats. Am J Physiol Regul Integr ...
Efeito de frações obtidas da fucoidana de Fucus vesiculosus em modelo experimental de artrite induzida por Zymosan
(Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do NorteBRUFRNPrograma de Pós-Graduação em BioquímicaBioquímica; Biologia Molecular, 2007-06-15)
The fucoidan from Fucus vesiculosus is known for having diverse biological properties. This study analyzed the therapeutic action of populations of commercial fucoidan (F. vesiculosus) on zymosan-induced arthritis. Three ...
Effect of exogenous galectin-1 on leukocyte migration: modulation of cytokine levels and adhesion molecules
(E-century Publishing Corp, 2014)
Endothelins modulate inflammatory reaction in zymosan-induced arthritis: participation of LTB4, TNF-alpha, and CXCL-1
(FEDERATION AMER SOC EXP BIOL, 2008)
Endothelins (ETs) are involved in inflammatory events, including pain, fever, edema, and cell migration. ET-1 levels are increased in plasma and synovial membrane of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients, but the evidence ...
Toll-like receptor 2/MyD88 signaling mediates zymosan-induced joint hypernociception in mice: Participation of TNF-alpha, IL-1 beta and CXCL1/KC
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BVAMSTERDAM, 2012)
Arthritic pain is a serious health problem that affects a large number of patients. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) activation within the joints has been implicated in pathophysiology of arthritis. However, their role in the ...
Efeito do Fucoidam de Fucus vesiculosus em um modelo experimental de artrite reumatóide
(Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do NorteBRUFRNPrograma de Pós-Graduação em BioquímicaBioquímica; Biologia Molecular, 2005-10-11)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is systemic auto imune disorder. It is caracterized by chronic inflammation of joints leading to progressive erosion of cartilage and bone. We investigated the effect of the administration of ...
Zymosan-induced luminol-amplified chemiluminescence of whole blood phagocytes in experimental and human hyperthyroidism
Luminol-amplified CL of whole blood phagocytes was studied in rats given 3 consecutive doses of 0.1 mg L-triiodothyronine T3/kg or in hyperthyroid patients, after stimulation by zymosan. In both cases, CL was significantly ...
Involvement of LTB4 in zymosan-induced joint nociception in mice: participation of neutrophils and PGE(2)
(FEDERATION AMER SOC EXP BIOL, 2008)
Leukotriene B-4 (LTB4) mediates different inflammatory events such as neutrophil migration and pain. The present study addressed the mechanisms of LTB4-mediated joint inflammation-induced hypernociception. It was observed ...
Efeito antiinflamatório de fucana extraída da alga Parda spatoglossum schroederii em modelos experimentais de Peritonite, choque não séptico e colite
(Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do NorteBRUFRNPrograma de Pós-Graduação em Ciências BiológicasBiodiversidade; Biologia Estrutural e Funcional., 2012-05-17)
Fucans is a name used for sulfated polysaccharides, which is most characteristic structure of the presence of sulfated L-fucose, are found in brown seaweed (Phaeophyceae) and echinoderms (sea urchins and sea cucumbers). These ...
