  1. 1. CarcinoEmbryonic Antigen-related Cell Adhesion Molecule 8 (CEACAM8) : Purification, Characterization, Cellular and Clinical Studies

    Author : Linshu Zhao; Per Venge; Claes Dahlgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; human neutrophil; human eosinophil; granule proteins; CEA; CEACAM8; G-CSF; ELISA; subcellular fractionation; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi;

    Abstract : A 95-kDa protein was purified from normal human granulocytes. The protein reacted with a monoclonal antibody against CEACAM8. MALDI-Tof and MS/MS analyses revealed the protein to be a CGM6 gene product. Thus, the protein was proved to be identical to CEACAM8. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulation of human eosinophil transmigration across lung epithelium

    Author : Lixin Liu; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; Eosinophils; regulation; migration; epithelial cells; lung; calcium; CD11b CD18; neutrophils; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : Eosinophil infiltration into the lung tissues and airways is a hallmark of allergic asthma. To reach the lung lumen, eosinophils migrate across the vascular endothelium, through the interstitial matrix and across lung epithelium. READ MORE

  3. 3. Activation of human eosinophils by exogenous danger signals

    Author : Lena Svensson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Human eosinophils; danger signals; WKYMVm; bacteria; allergen; chemotaxis; CR3; free oxygen radicals; degranulation; formyl peptide receptor;

    Abstract : Eosinophilic granulocytes are leukocytes that reside in the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts. Their function in health is unknown. READ MORE

  4. 4. NO Effect on Inflammatory Reaction in Extracorporeal Circulation : Ex vivo Studies

    Author : Mika Lahtinen; Jan Borowiec; Per Venge; Vibeke Videm; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; Cardiac surgery; extracorporeal circulation; inflammatory reaction; NO; degranulation; neutrophil; eosinophil; basophil; complement; contact system; coagulation; Medicin; Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : Nitric oxide (NO) is expressed in inflammatory tissues. However, NO effects are controversial in inflammation; NO is described as acting in a dose dependent manner and possess both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory properties. READ MORE

  5. 5. CC16 in allergy and allergic inflammation

    Author : Sofi Johansson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : CC16; CC10; uteroglobin; Clara cell; allergy; asthma; children; allergen; respiratory syncytial virus; T cell; eosinophil; neutrophil; fMLF; PGD2;

    Abstract : Clara cell 16-kDa (CC16) is an anti-inflammatory protein mainly produced in the lung epithelium by Clara cells. Patients with asthma have lower levels of CC16 in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and serum compared with healthy controls. READ MORE
