TRPV1 receptors modulate retinal development
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2011)
We investigated the possible participation of TRPV1 channels in retinal apoptosis and overall development. Retinas from newborn, male albino rats were treated in vitro with capsazepine, a TRPV1 antagonist. The expression ...
An aryl hydrocarbon receptor agonist amplifies the mitogenic actions of estradiol in granulosa cells: evidence of involvement of the cognate receptors
(Society for the Study of Reproduction, 2006-02)
The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) is a ligand-activated transcription factor that, besides mediating toxic responses, may have a central role in ovarian physiology. Studying the actions of AHR ligands on granulosa cells ...
Helper Activity by Human Large Granular Lymphocytes in in Vitro Immunoglobulin Synthesis

Propolis: lymphocyte proliferation and IFN-gamma production
(Elsevier B.V., 2014)
Pharmacological activities of a toxic phospholipase A isolated from the venom of the snake Bothrops asper
A toxic phospholipase A was isolated from the venom of Bothrops asper. It induced skeletal muscle damage, anticoagulant effects and edema in the foot pad. The toxin had an intravenous LD50 of 95 micrograms/16-18 g mouse ...
Foot-and-mouth disease virus infection of dendritic cells triggersphosphorylation of ERK1/2 inducing class I presentation and apoptosis
Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a highly contagious viral disease of cloven-hoofed animals. This pathol-ogy is caused by foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV). Over time, the development of vaccines to preventthe spread of ...
Treatment with galectin-1 eye drops regulates mast cell degranulation and attenuates the severity of conjunctivitis
Galectin-1 (Gal-1) is a β-galactoside-binding protein with diverse biological activities in the pathogenesis of inflammation, however the mechanisms by which Gal-1 modulates cellular responses in allergic inflammatory ...
p38 MAPK regulates IL-1β induced IL-6 expression through mRNA stability in osteoblasts
Osteoblast-derived IL-6 functions in coupled bone turnover by supporting osteoclastogenesis favoring bone resorption instead of bone deposition. Gene regulation of IL-6 is complex occurring both at transcription and ...
Expression of low-density lipoprotein receptors in peripheral blood and tonsil B lymphocytes
(Clin Exp Immunol, 2015)
