Sterile Triggers Drive Joint Inflammation in TNF- and IL-1β-Dependent Mouse Arthritis Models
Using two independent transgenic mouse arthritis models, either TNF- or IL-1β dependent, investigators demonstrated that arthritis developed independently of the microbiota and intestinal inflammation.
[Cell Metabolism] Using exercise and sarcopenia models, mice lacking IL6Rα on T cells demonstrated deficits in regulatory T cells, their functional maturation, and a more pronounced decline in muscle mass.
[Communications Biology] Based on the up-regulation of catabolism and down-regulation of anabolism, researchers showed genetic mutation-mediated metabolic reprogramming in the progression of cancer cachexia by screening for metabolites and investigating their direct effect on muscle atrophy.
[Acta Pharmacologica Sinica] Researchers investigated the effect of myeloid-derived growth factor to postinjury neointimal formation and the underlying mechanisms. Rat carotid arteries balloon-injured model was established.
