Research progress on the role of immune cells in Brucella infection

of extracellular and intracellular microbial infections and can defend against invasion of Brucella through cooperation with Th1 cells [ 12 ]. The antibody response to Brucella proteins, mediated by interleukin 17 (IL-17) secreted by Th17 cells, plays a key role in brucellosis vaccine [ 13 ]. Regulatory T cells (Tregs) inhibit the immune function of effector T cells, promoting Brucella invasion [ 14 ]. Therefore, the occurrence of brucellosis may be related to the imbalance in Treg/Th17 cells. Clapp et al. [ 15 ] have observed from nasal mucosa infection that

Analysis of expression of genes responsible for regulation of cellular proliferation and migration – microarray approach based on porcine oocyte model

fertilization process stops the second arrest and terminates meiosis. The duration of oocyte full maturation is dependent on the species, in humans it can last decades [ 4 ]. In in vitro conditions, nuclear maturation is hormone-independent and is initiated by removing the oocytes from their follicular environment [ 5 ]. The proper oocyte development requires close communication with surrounding somatic cells. These cells are affected by wide range of regulatory molecules, proteins and hormones leading to proper oocyte maturation. The somatic cumulus cells (CCs) and

The genes regulating maintenance of cellular protein location are differentially expressed in porcine epithelial oviductal cells during longterm in vitro cultivation

encodes thrombin receptor, which is engaged in the regulation of thrombotic response. Thrombin cleaves fibrinogen to fibrin, also exerting cell-activating properties, such as platelet aggregation, which is crucial in the case of vascular injury [ 19 ]. This gene’s expression hasn’t been described in porcine OECs yet, with our study showing its downregulation after long term culture. NFKBIA on the other hand, which also exhibited a decrease in expression in this study, has been linked with reproductive events, since Paciolla et al. suggested its involvement in bovine

downregulation. KLF4 is also known to induce apoptosis via transcriptional activation of BAX and transcriptional repression of BCL-2 in the setting of oxidative stress in granulosa cells [ 23 ]. PIM1 encodes a serine/threonine protein kinase engaged in hematopoietic development, with its overexpression occurring in many myeloid and lymphoid acute leukaemias [ 24 ]. However, it hasn’t been described in porcine OECs yet. Regarding oxidative stress, PIM1 is thought to be upregulated during transient stress and downregulated during chronic stress [ 25 ]. The last of ten most
