- Inflammation and ischemia: macrophages activated by fibronectin fragments enhance the survival of injured cardiac myocytesJoAnn Trial
Clinical Immunology, Department of Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine, and Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Houston, TX 77030, USA
Exp Biol Med (Maywood) 229:538-45. 2004..These results suggest that tissue degradation products, released in the early hours of an inflammatory response, stimulate tissue-infiltrating macrophages to protect injured but still viable parenchymal cells from death by apoptosis...
- Monocyte activation by circulating fibronectin fragments in HIV-1-infected patientsJoAnn Trial
Research Center for AIDS and HIV Infections, Immunology Research Laboratory, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and Department of Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX 77030, USA
J Immunol 173:2190-8. 2004..These results suggest that monocyte behavior in HIV-1-infected patients may be influenced by FNf and the ratio of protease and antiproteases in the cells' microenvironment...
- Impact of fibronectin fragments on the transendothelial migration of HIV-infected leukocytes and the development of subendothelial foci of infectious leukocytesHolly H Birdsall
Research Center for AIDS and HIV Infections, Immunology Research Laboratory, Michael E DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX 77030, USA
J Immunol 173:2746-54. 2004..The ability of FNf to stimulate transendothelial migration of HIV-1-infected MNLs may help to explain the dissemination of this infection into cardiac, renal, and CNS tissues...
- Monocytes stimulated by 110-kDa fibronectin fragments suppress proliferation of anti-CD3-activated T cellsHolly H Birdsall
Research Center for AIDS and HIV Infections, Immunology Research Laboratory at the Michael E DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Houston, TX 77030, USA
J Immunol 175:3347-53. 2005..Thus, in addition to activating MNL and causing them to migrate to sites of injury, FNf appears to induce suppressor monocytes...
