Abstract

Myocardial inflammation is one of the commonest mechanisms in cardiomyopathy (CMP). Mannose binding lectin (MBL) is a key molecule in innate immunity, while macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is a constitutive element of the host defenses. We investigated the possible associat...read more

Structure and Function of DNA

The double helix structure of DNA is important for its biological function. Discover the latest research on the Structure and Function of DNA here.

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Complement Pathway: Mannose-Binding Lectin

The Mannose-Binding Lectin Complement Pathway is activated when mannose-binding lectin binds to mannose found on the surface of pathogens. Subsequent complement activation is similar to the classical complement pathway, but without the need for antigen-antibody complexes. Discover the latest research here.

Macrophage Activation

Macrophages are phagocytic cells that are found in virtually all tissues. Upon activation by external stimuli, they can take on broadly inflammatory or anti-inflammatory phenotypes and aid in clearing infection or damaged cells and in tissue repair. Find the latest research on macrophage activation here.

Myocarditis

Myocarditis is an acute or chronic inflammatory disease of the myocardium which can be viral, postinfectious immune or primarily organ-specific autoimmune. Discover the latest research on myocarditis here.
