Regulation of Inflammatory Signaling in Health and Disease (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology) 1st ed
[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=9811059861]
This book discusses recent research in innate immunity, which has revealed a large number of receptors that sense the presence of microorganisms or cellular damage in tissues. In complex tissues, many of these sensing events occur simultaneously. Thus, the downstream signaling pathways need to be integrated so that an appropriate cellular inflammatory response can be initiated. In addition, the inflammasome defines the molecular and cellular processes of inflammation in response to microbial infection. Previous data suggested that regulation of inflammasomes is mediated by microbes, but inflammasomes also have antimicrobial functions. Increasing evidence in mouse models, together with human data, strongly implicates an involvement of the inflammasome and uncontrolled inflammation in the initiation and progression of diseases with a high impact on public health.
The book reviews novel aspects of functional genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, post-translat
ional modifications, microbiome and immunometabolism in order to understand inflammatory signaling and responses, covering recent findings on the mechanisms underlying the regulation of inflammatory responses to pathogens, dysregulation of these responses in inflammatory disease, and the use of such mechanisms to boost or subdue the inflammatory response. Bridging the gaps in understanding between the fields of human and mouse immunology, it provides valuable insights into inflammatory-mediated disease and immune defense. Such innovative perspectives in both basic and clinical research promote the translation of knowledge to the clinic.
About the Author
Dr. Dakang Xu is Professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Institute of Ageing Research, Hangzhou Normal University, China. The main focus of his research team is to used a combination of genetically modified mouse models of disease, cell signalling, bioinformatics
analyses and clinical applications, to understand the mechanisms of regulation of epigenetic factors in inflammatory signalling. He has also studied how modulation of the activity of those key factors affects the inflammatory response and tumour progression, through the function of immune cell subsets and cytokines in cancer and inflammatory diseases. This work has led to 50 peer-reviewed publications in high impact journals, including Nature Immunology, Immunity, Nature Communications, PNAS and Cancer Research.
