Modulation of the release of 9-hydroxy-octadecadienoic acid and other fatty acid derived mediators from guinea-pig pulmonary macrophages

International Journal of Immunopharmacology

Non-stimulated guinea-pig pulmonary macrophages (PM) convert arachidonic acid to thromboxane B2 and 12-hydroxy-heptadecatrienoic acid, whereas linoleic acid is metabolized to two hydroxy compounds, i.e. 9-hydroxy- and 13-hydroxy-octadecadienoic acid. Coincubation of PM with immune serum (2% v/v) resulted in a profound reduction of the release of these products. This effect seemed to be due to an inhibitory action on cyclooxygenase activity. Control serum also possessed inhibitory properties towards the release of fatty acid metabolites, possibly due to an effect on phospholipase activity. Because of the radical scavenging properties of 9-hydroxy-octadecadienoic acid, the modulation of the release of this product may be an important determinant in macrophage function.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
