    • Beta2-adrenergic receptor signaling in CD4(+) Foxp3(+) regulatory T cells enhances their suppressive function in a PKA-dependent manner 

      Guereschi, Marcia Grando [UNIFESP]; Araujo, Leandro Pires [UNIFESP]; Maricato, Juliana Terzi [UNIFESP]; Takenaka, Maisa Carla [UNIFESP]; Nascimento, Vanessa de Mendonça [UNIFESP]; Vivanco, Bruno Camolese [UNIFESP]; Reis, Vanessa Oliveira dos [UNIFESP]; Keller, Alexandre de Castro [UNIFESP]; Brum, Patricia C.; Basso, Alexandre Salgado [UNIFESP] (Wiley-Blackwell, 2013-04-01)
      Beta2-adrenergic receptor (B2AR) signaling is known to impair Th1-cell differentiation and function in a cAMP-dependent way, leading to inhibition of cell proliferation and decreased production of IL-2 and IFN-. CD4+ Foxp3+ ...

    • Circulating renin-angiotensin system and catecholamines in childhood: is there a role for birthweight? 

      Franco, Maria do Carmo Pinho [UNIFESP]; Casarini, Dulce Elena [UNIFESP]; Carneiro-Ramos, Marcella S.; Sawaya, Ana Lydia [UNIFESP]; Barreto-Chaves, Maria Luiza M.; Sesso, Ricardo de Castro Cintra [UNIFESP] (Portland Press Ltd, 2008-03-01)
      There have been only a few reports on the sympathoadrenal and renin-angiotensin systems in children of small gestational age. the purpose of the present study was to investigate plasma levels of ACE (angiotensin-converting ...

    • Neuroimmune interactions: dendritic cell modulation by the sympathetic nervous system 

      Takenaka, Maisa C. [UNIFESP]; Guereschi, Marcia G. [UNIFESP]; Basso, Alexandre S. [UNIFESP] (Springer Heidelberg, 2017)
      Dendritic cells are of paramount importance bridging innate and adaptive immune responses. Depending on the context, after sensing environmental antigens, commensal microorganisms, pathogenic agents, or antigens from the ...

    • Role of noradrenaline on the expression of the Na+/K+-ATPase alpha(2) isoform and the contractility of cultured rat vas deferens 

      Quintas, Luis Eduardo Menezes; Lafayette, Simone Sette Lopes [UNIFESP]; Caricati-Neto, Afonso [UNIFESP]; Jurkiewicz, Aron [UNIFESP]; Noel, François (Elsevier B.V., 2002-11-15)
      Rat vasa deferentia were cultured for 3 days in Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium in the absence or presence of 1 muM noradrenaline (NA) to investigate if the lack of NA release is the key factor to explain the selective ...
