Spatial and temporal profiles for anti-inflammatory gene expression in leukocytes during a resolving model of peritonitis
(Journal of Immunology, 2006-04-01) [Artigo]
The recent appreciation of the role played by endogenous counterregulatory mechanisms in controlling the outcome of the host inflammatory response requires specific analysis of their spatial and temporal profiles. In this ...
The involvement of anti-inflammatory protein, Annexin A1, in ocular toxoplasmosis
(Molecular Vision, 2012-06-15) [Artigo]
Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the expression of the protein annexin A1 (ANXA1), a potent endogenous regulator of the inflammatory process, in ocular toxoplasmosis. Methods: C57BL/6 female mice were infected ...
Mast cells modulate the inflammatory process in endotoxin-induced uveitis
(Molecular Vision, 2011-05-30) [Artigo]
Purpose: To investigate the role of mast cells and annexin-A1 (Anxa1) in endotoxin-induced uveitis (EIU). Methods: EIU was induced by injection of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) into the paws of rats, which were then sacrificed ...
Female sex hormones mediate the allergic lung reaction by regulating the release of inflammatory mediators and the expression of lung E-selectin in rats
(Respiratory Research, 2010-08-24) [Artigo]
Background: Fluctuations of estradiol and progesterone levels caused by the menstrual cycle worsen asthma symptoms. Conflicting data are reported in literature regarding pro and anti-inflammatory properties of estradiol ...
Critical protective role for annexin 1 gene expression in the endotoxemic murine microcirculation
(American Journal of Pathology, 2005-06-01) [Artigo]
The inflammatory response is a protective process of the body to counteract xenobiotic penetration and injury, although in disease this response can become deregulated. There are endogenous biochemical pathways that operate ...
