In vitro Inflammasome Assay
Authors:  Mario M. Zaiss and Kendle M. Maslowski, date: 06/05/2014, view: 4474, Q&A: 0
Innate immune cells sense pathogen and danger-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs and DAMPs) through a range of innate immune pattern recognition receptors (PRRs). One type of PRRs are the Nod-like receptors (NLRs), which form inflammasomes; a ...
Identification of Helminth-induced Type 2 CD4+ T Cells and ILC2s
Authors:  Mario M. Zaiss and Kendle M. Maslowski, date: 06/05/2014, view: 2905, Q&A: 0
After activation, T cells differentiate into different T helper (Th) subsets, namely Th1, Th2, and Th17. These different Th subsets are associated with the production of particular cytokines endowing them with different functions. In immunity ...
