خلاصه: Objective: Overwhelming inflammatory chemokines and cytokines characterize the immunological profile and inflammatory settings of Behcet disease (BD). The connection between autophagy-related genes (ATGs) and various perspectives of innate and adaptive immunobiology such as antigen presentation, immune tolerance, lymphocyte development and differentiation, cytokine signaling, and inflammation have been implicated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the mRNA expression profile of ATGs in macrophages of patients with BD. Materials and Methods: ... سال انتشار: 2018
Ankylosing spondylitis monocyte-derived macrophages express increased level of A2A adenosine receptor and decreased level of ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase-1 (CD39), A1 and A2B adenosine receptors  

Ankylosing spondylitis monocyte-derived macrophages express increased level of A2A adenosine receptor and decreased level of ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase-1 (CD39), A1 and A2B adenosine receptors

خلاصه: Macrophages play an important role in the ankylosing spondylitis (AS) auto-inflammatory responses and fibrocartilage destruction. Adenosine is a key modulator of inflammatory conditions. The various effects of adenosine are mediated by its interaction with adenosine receptors (AR). In this study, we investigated the mRNA expression ofA1, A2A, A2B, andA3 adenosine receptors, ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase-1 (CD39), and ecto-5′-nucleotidase (CD73) in the monocyte-derived macrophages from AS patients in comparison to healthy controls. We also explored the ... سال انتشار: 2018
 

Macrophages from Behcet's Disease Patients Express Decreased Level of Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor (AHR) mRNA

مولف: Mohammad Taghi Palizgir1, Maryam Akhtari1, 2, Mahdi Mahmoudi1, Shayan Mostafaei1, Alireza Rezaeimanesh3, Massoomeh Akhlaghi1, and Farhad Shahram1

خلاصه: Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) is a ligand-activated transcription factor, connecting environmental stimulators with the immune system. M1 macrophages are a part of immune system that contribute to the inflammatory events in the pathogenesis of Behcet's disease (BD). The effect of AHR on the macrophages in BD patients is still unclear. In this study, we investigated the mRNA expression of AHR in the monocyte-derived and M1 macrophages in active BD patients ... سال انتشار: 2017
 

Analysis of killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors and their human leukocyte antigen-ligands gene polymorphisms in Iranian patients with systemic lupus erythematosus

Authers: M Akhtari1, A Farazmand1, M Mahmoudi2, M Akbarian2, N Ahmadzadeh2, Z Mirkazemi2, S Mostafaei3 and AR Jamshidi

Abstract: Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an inflammatory autoimmune disease. Natural killer (NK) cells play a critical role in the pathogenesis of autoimmune disorders that mainly express killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIRs). The present study was undertaken to determine the association of the KIR alleles, genotypes, and KIR–human leukocyte antigen (HLA) ligand gene combinations with the susceptibility to SLE. Methods: The genotyping of 17 KIR and 5 HLA loci was performed using the polymerase chain reactionsequence specific ... سال انتشار: 2016
