A binary module for microbiota-mediated regulation of γδ17 cells, hallmarked by microbiota-driven expression of programmed cell death protein 1.

Journal Article Cell Rep · August 29, 2023 Little is known about how microbiota regulate innate-like γδ T cells or how these restrict their effector functions within mucosal barriers, where microbiota provide chronic stimulation. Here, we show that microbiota-mediated regulation of γδ17 cells is bi ... Full text Link to item Cite

Enterococcus Intestinal Domination is Associated with Increased Mortality in the Acute Leukemia Chemotherapy Population.

Journal Article Clin Infect Dis · December 20, 2021 BACKGROUND: Enterococcus intestinal domination (EID), a state of dysbiosis wherein enterococci comprise ≥30% abundance within the microbiota, has been associated with Enterococcus bacteremia, graft-versus-host disease, and mortality in the allogeneic hemat ...

A Modern-World View of Host-Microbiota-Pathogen Interactions.

Journal Article J Immunol · October 1, 2021 The microbiota-the diverse set of commensal microbes that normally colonize humans-represents the first line of defense against infectious diseases. In this review, we summarize the direct and indirect mechanisms by which the microbiota modulates susceptib ... Full text Link to item Cite

Transcriptional and proteomic insights into the host response in fatal COVID-19 cases.

Journal Article Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A · November 10, 2020 Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the global pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2, has resulted thus far in greater than 933,000 deaths worldwide; yet disease pathogenesis remains unclear. Clinical and immunological features of patients with COVID-19 have high ... Full text Link to item Cite

Hepatitis C Virus Infection Is Inhibited by a Noncanonical Antiviral Signaling Pathway Targeted by NS3-NS4A.

Journal Article J Virol · December 1, 2019 The hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3-NS4A protease complex is required for viral replication and is the major viral innate immune evasion factor. NS3-NS4A evades antiviral innate immunity by inactivating several proteins, including MAVS, the signaling adaptor f ... Full text Link to item Cite

The arginase inhibitor Nω-hydroxy-nor-arginine (nor-NOHA) induces apoptosis in leukemic cells specifically under hypoxic conditions but CRISPR/Cas9 excludes arginase 2 (ARG2) as the functional target.

Journal Article PLoS One · 2018 Cancer cells, including in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), depend on the hypoxic response to persist in hosts and evade therapy. Accordingly, there is significant interest in drugging cancer-specific hypoxic responses. However, a major challenge in leukemi ... Full text Link to item Cite
