Co-culture Models of Endothelial Cells, Macrophages, and Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells for the Study of the Natural History of Atherosclerosis
Investigators presented a fast, affordable, and reproducible three-cell co-culture system that could represent the different cellular mechanisms of atherosclerosis, extending from atherogenesis to pathological intimal thickening.
[Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation] The National Institutes of Health recently awarded Dr. Xiao-Hong Sun a $3.4 million grant to continue unraveling mysteries about innate lymphoid cells, including whether they may offer clues about the differences in immune reactions between children and adults.
[Science Immunology] Scientists identified OTULIN deficiency as a cellular condition that licenses RIPK3-mediated cell death in murine macrophages, leading to Nlrp3 inflammasome activation and subsequent IL-1β secretion.
[Cellular & Molecular Immunology] Investigators showed that mice deficient in Zbtb24 in the hematopoietic lineage recapitulated the major clinical features of patients with immunodeficiency, centromeric instability, and facial anomalies (ICF) syndrome.
