  2. Steinberg F, Bearden M, Keen C. Cocoa and chocolate flavonoids: implications for cardiovascular health. J Am Diet Assoc. 2003;103:215-23 pubmed
    ..Applications of this knowledge include recommendations by health professionals to encourage individuals to consume a wide range of phytochemical-rich foods, which can include dark chocolate in moderate amounts. ..
  3. Rolán H, Tsolis R. Inactivation of the type IV secretion system reduces the Th1 polarization of the immune response to Brucella abortus infection. Infect Immun. 2008;76:3207-13 pubmed publisher
    ..These results suggest that early differences in cytokine responses contribute to a stronger Th1 polarization of the immune response in mice infected with wild-type B. abortus than in mice infected with the virB mutant. ..
  4. Zeki A, Yeganeh B, Kenyon N, Post M, Ghavami S. Autophagy in airway diseases: a new frontier in human asthma?. Allergy. 2016;71:5-14 pubmed publisher
    ..We end by offering two opposing but plausible hypotheses as to how autophagy may be directly involved in airway fibrosis. ..
  5. Rolán H, Tsolis R. Mice lacking components of adaptive immunity show increased Brucella abortus virB mutant colonization. Infect Immun. 2007;75:2965-73 pubmed
    ..These results show that in the murine model host, the T4SS is required for persistence beyond 3 to 5 days after infection and suggest that the T4SS may contribute to evasion of adaptive immune mechanisms by B. abortus. ..
  6. Capitanio J, Abel K, Mendoza S, Blozis S, McChesney M, Cole S, et al. Personality and serotonin transporter genotype interact with social context to affect immunity and viral set-point in simian immunodeficiency virus disease. Brain Behav Immun. 2008;22:676-89 pubmed publisher
  7. Lee K, Wikelski M, Robinson W, Robinson T, Klasing K. Constitutive immune defences correlate with life-history variables in tropical birds. J Anim Ecol. 2008;77:356-63 pubmed publisher
    ..Our results suggest that, despite probably widespread differences in the intensity and diversity of pathogen exposure, species-level variation in constitutive immune defences is understandable within the context of life-history theory. ..

  9. Choi Y, Baumgarth N. Dual role for B-1a cells in immunity to influenza virus infection. J Exp Med. 2008;205:3053-64 pubmed publisher
    ..With that, our data reveal fundamental differences in the response regulation of B-1 and B-2 cells during an infection. ..

    ..This self/non-self discrimination did not require physical contact and is a necessary first step towards possible kin recognition and kin selection. ..
  2. Bart R, Chern M, Vega Sánchez M, Canlas P, Ronald P. Rice Snl6, a cinnamoyl-CoA reductase-like gene family member, is required for NH1-mediated immunity to Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae. PLoS Genet. 2010;6:e1001123 pubmed publisher
    ..These results suggest the existence of a conserved group of CCR-like genes involved in the defense response, and with the potential to alter lignin content without affecting development. ..

    ..Our findings suggest that chronic HIV infection enhances the responsiveness of APCs to commensal lactobacilli, a mechanism that may partly contribute to chronic immune activation. ..
