    ..Because CpG ODNs interact with TLR9 and activate both the innate and the adaptive immune system, the application of CpG ODNs for the treatment of cancers, infectious diseases, and allergies holds great promise. ..
  2. Hanagata N. IFITM5 mutations and osteogenesis imperfecta. J Bone Miner Metab. 2016;34:123-31 pubmed publisher
    ..In this review, the current state of knowledge of OI pathological mechanisms due to IFITM5 mutations will be reviewed. ..

    ..Thus, the resultant hybrids nanosheets had a potential application in the bone regeneration. ..

    ..We propose these CpG ODNs consisting of only a PD backbone as a novel class of CpG ODN. ..

    ..Overall, the effect of Ifitm5 deficiency on bone formation was less than we expected. We hypothesize that this may have resulted from a compensatory mechanism in Ifitm5-deficient mice. ..
  7. Hanagata N, Li X. Osteoblast-enriched membrane protein IFITM5 regulates the association of CD9 with an FKBP11-CD81-FPRP complex and stimulates expression of interferon-induced genes. Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2011;409:378-84 pubmed publisher
    ..Induction of these genes likely resulted from dissociation of CD9 from the FKBP11-CD81-[FPRP/CD9] complex. Cumulatively, these results suggest that IFITM5 is involved not only in bone formation, but also in immune system activity. ..
