Abstract

Many studies have linked ambient fine particulate matter (aerodynamic diameters less than 2.5 μm, PM₂.₅) air pollution to increased morbidity and mortality of cardiovascular diseases in the general population, but the biologic mechanisms of these associations are yet to be elucidated.

Neutrophils

Neutrophils are an essential component of the innate immune response and a major contributor to inflammation. Here is the latest research on neutrophils.

Inflammation & Obesity

Obesity is the accumulation of abnormal or excessive fat that may interfere with the maintenance of an optimal state of health. The excess of macronutrients in the adipose tissues stimulates them to release inflammatory mediators such as tumor necrosis factor α and interleukin 6, and reduces production of adiponectin, predisposing to a pro-inflammatory state.

Interferon Signalling

Via interaction with their specific receptors, interferons (IFNs) activate signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) complexes. STAT activation initiates the classical Janus kinase-STAT (JAK-STAT) signaling pathway. In this pathway, JAKs associate with IFN receptors and, following receptor engagement with IFN, phosphorylate both STAT1 and STAT2. As a result, an IFN-stimulated gene factor 3 (ISGF3) complex forms—this contains STAT1, STAT2 and a third transcription factor called IRF9—and moves into the cell nucleus. Inside the nucleus, the ISGF3 complex binds to specific nucleotide sequences called IFN-stimulated response elements (ISREs) in the promoters of certain genes, known as IFN stimulated genes. Discover the latest research on interferon signalling here.

Respiratory: Allergy, Immunology & Inflammation

This feed has been developed in conjunction with the American Thoracic Society for the benefit of its Allergy, Immunology, and Inflammation Assembly. It highlights new and impactful papers on allergy, asthma, genetics, and the pathogenesis of lung diseases.

Chemokines & Chemokine Receptors

Chemokines are a subset of cytokines which induce chemotaxis in cells expressing chemokine receptors. Chemokines can be broadly categorized into two functional subgroups, homeostatic (basal expression in lymphoid tissues for surveillance purposes) or inflammatory (released during injury to recruit immune effector cells). Chemokine receptors are G-protein coupled receptors which, upon chemokine binding, induce calcium influx into the cell. Find the latest research on chemokines and chemokine receptors here.
