Book Description Table of Contents Reviews Book Description Provides an overview of the structure, transcription regulation and binding characteristics of cellular adhesion molecules and their ligands in the maintenance of function, immunological reactions and inflammatory processes with organ systems. Based on the possible important role of chemokines and adhesion molecules in the immune response during CMV infection, we hypothesized that these molecules could contribute to the development of infection and clinical manifestations of CMV-related disease in renal transplant by: Adhesion molecules Endothelin FIGURE Common pathogenetic mechanisms of renal injury in tropical bacterial infections. Depending on the bacterial species and strain, as well as on the host’s resistance and genetic background, bacteria may directly invade the.
Get this from a library! Molecular biology of cell adhesion molecules. [Michael A Horton;] -- There has been an explosion of interest in adhesion molecules in recent years and this has led to a greater understanding of cell behaviour in physiological and pathological situations. What has. Cell adhesion molecules (CAM) are cell surface molecules which define the temporal, spatial, and cellular selectivity patterns of cell-cell interactions. During ontogenesis, cell adhesion molecules provide tissue- and organ specific information and serve as contact molecules in the arrangement of complex by: 1. The chapter on renal development and disease by Lefkowith and Simon is equally lucid and well organized, beginning with a discussion of renal morphogenesis and adhesion molecules, carrying on to discuss tubular necrosis, glomerulonephritis and renal allografts and finishing with a short discussion of anti-adhesion molecule therapy of graft Author: Stephen H Benedict. Chemokines and soluble adhesion molecules in renal transplant recipients with cytomegalovirus infection Article in Clinical & Experimental Immunology (2) June with 27 Reads.
The recent characterization of cellular adhesion molecules has led to the identification of mechanisms by which leukocytes enter the kidney and subsequently interact with renal parenchymal cells. The therapeutic goal of intervening in the infiltration and activation of particular leukocyte populations can be approached by strategies that Cited by: In a study reporting on results from renal biopsies the formation of interstitial infiltrates and the degree of tubulointerstitial fibrosis was associated with the level of expression of adhesion molecules. The reversibility of renal fibrosis was demonstrated in different animal studies with relatively mild degrees of fibrosis. In this Cited by: 4. This book covers the structure and classification of adhesion molecules in relation to signaling pathways and gene expression. It discusses immunohistochemical localization, neutrophil migration, and junctional, functional, and inflammatory adhesion molecules in pathologies such as leukocyte decompression sickness and ischemia reperfusion injury.
