Progress of research on the immune tolerance of chronic HBV infection

of CHB patients is diminished [ 13 ]. HBcAg can activate Toll-like receptor 2 on Kupffer cells, causing Kupffer cells to secrete additional IL-10 and inhibit the immune function of HBV-specific CD8 + T lymphocytes [ 14 ]. This process mediates the depletion of anti-HBV CD8 + T lymphocytes and induces liver immune tolerance to HBV. Programmed death molecule 1 (PD-1)/B7 homolog 1 (B7-H1) signaling pathway can negatively regulate the immune response of T and B lymphocytes, is closely related to the functional depletion of HBV-specific CD8 + T lymphocytes, and

Research progress on human microecology and infectious diseases

natural antibodies to trigger natural defense mechanisms, and prevent the spread of malaria. McClemens et al . [ 44 ] observed that the use of Lactobacillus bulgaricus (JB-1) strains can mediate IL-10 signaling pathways during intestinal parasite infection to promote the elimination of parasites. 3 Expectations Human microecology has been extensively investigated. The microecological system has been regarded as an organ with physiological functions in the human body. The normal flora plays an important role in human immunity, metabolism, development, nutrition

Evaluation of long-term antibody response and cross-serotype reaction in ducks immunised with recombinant Riemerella anatipestifer outer membrane protein A and CpG ODN

constructs containing three copies of GACGTT motifs enhanced both humoral and cell-mediated immunity elicited by a rOmpA vaccine in ducks up to five weeks after the primary immunisation ( 3 , 8 ). Results from the homologous challenge showed that ducks immunised with a rOmpA + CpG ODN vaccine had a 90%-reduced pathological score in comparison with the control. In the present study, long-term antibody production (up to nine months post-immunisation) and cross-serotype reaction of the antibody were investigated in ducklings immunised with the rOmpA + CpG ODN vaccine

Review on the laboratory diagnosis of Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection

traditional PCR, nested PCR, real-time quantitative PCR, nucleic acid sequence-based amplification (NASBA), loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) technology, and RNA simultaneous amplification and testing (SAT). On the basis of the basic principles of these experimental methods, domestic and foreign scholars have developed a composite technology that can simultaneously detect multiple pathogens. The target genes frequently amplified in the experiment include P1 protein coding gene, 16S rRNA, card gene, ATPase gene, etc. The types of clinical specimens available are

Mouse (Mus musculus) embryonic cerebral cortex cell death caused by carbofuran insecticide exposure

-administered groups. This finding indicated that the higher the CF exposure, the more embryonic cerebral cortex neurons express p53 protein, despite the difference between the CF groups being insignificant. In the normal situation, p53 (wild-type p53) is maintained at a low level through degradation mediated by Mdm2 protein in the N-terminal domain area. The concentration of p53 increases when there is DNA damage, chromosomal aberration, hypoxia, and/or telomere contraction ( 24 ). Rapid increase and activation of p53 may be brought about by intracellular and extracellular
