Abstract Allergic diseases including asthma are worldwide on the rise and contribute significantly to health expenditures. Allergic diseases are prototypic diseases with a strong gene by environment interaction component and epigenetic mechanisms might mediate the effects of the environment on the disease phenotype. MicroRNAs, small non-coding RNAs (miRNAs), regulate gene expression post-transcriptionally. Functional single-stranded miRNAs are generated in multiple steps of enzymatic processing ...

Abstract Sjogren–Larsson syndrome (SLS) is an autoimmune disorder inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. To date, 80 missense mutations have been identified in association with the Aldehyde Dehydrogenase 3 Family Member A2 (ALDH3A2) gene causing SLS. Disruption of the function of ALDH3A2 leads to excessive accumulation of fat in the cells, which interferes with the normal function of protective membranes or materials that are necessary for the body to function normally. We retrieved 54 mis...

Abstract Blau syndrome (BS), which affects the eyes, skin, and joints, is an autosomal dominant genetic inflammatory disorder. BS is caused by mutations in the NOD2 gene. However, there are no direct treatments, and treatment with conventional anti-inflammatory drugs such as adrenal glucocorticoids, anti-metabolites, and biological agents such as anti-TNF and infliximab have all been attempted with varying degrees of success. In this study, we tried to identify all the reported mutations in the ...

Abstract Antibodies have provided invaluable treatment options for many diseases, with immunotherapy revolutionising the treatment of several inflammatory disorders including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Accumulating evidence suggests that IBD results from an inappropriate response to intestinal microbes and environmental factors in genetically susceptible individuals, with overactivity of the pro-inflammatory pathways. On a pathophysiological level, IBD is a complex disease with intestinal...

Abstract The complement system is one of the first barriers and consists of well-balanced cascades of reactions which generates anaphylatoxins such as C5a and C3a. A G-protein coupled receptor C5a anaphylatoxin chemotactic receptor 1 (C5AR1, also known as CD88) is the receptor for C5a which is present on cells of myeloid origin. Owing to difficulty in obtaining crystal structures of GPCRs in either inactive or active state, accurate structural modeling is still highly desirable for the majority ...
Abstract Periodontitis is an infection-driven inflammatory disease, which is characterized by gingival inflammation and bone loss. Periodontitis is associated with various systemic diseases, including cardiovascular, respiratory, musculoskeletal, and reproductive system related abnormalities. Recent theory attributes the pathogenesis of periodontitis to oral microbial dysbiosis, in which Porphyromonas gingivalis acts as a critical agent by disrupting host immune homeostasis. Lipopolysaccharide, ...
Abstract Morbidity of inflammatory gastrointestinal (GI) diseases continues to grow resulting in worsen quality of life and increased burden on public medical systems. Complex and heterogenous illnesses, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) encompass several inflammation -associated pathologies including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. IBD is often initiated by a complex interplay between host genetic and environmental factors, lifestyle and diet, and intestinal bacterial components. IBD i...
Abstract The rheumatological diseases are a group of chronic, painful, degenerative and debilitating conditions with an increasing prevalence across the globe. The pathogenesis of these disorders is complex, overlapping and not fully understood. As such, it is difficult and time consuming to achieve correct diagnosis and complete remission for an individual patient. In this review we describe the most common forms of inflammatory arthritis and discuss how the management and treatment options for...

Abstract The interactome – the network of protein-protein interactions (PPIs) within a cell or organism – is technically difficult to assess. Bioinformatic tools can, not only, identify potential PPIs that can be later experimentally validated, but also be used to assign functional meaning to PPIs. Saliva's potential as a non-invasive diagnostic fluid is currently being explored by several research groups. But, in order to fully attain its potential, it is necessary to achieve the full character...
