  • testosterone-regulated KAP promoter activity in proximal tubule cells [ 15 ] as well as estrogen-regulated endothelial cell function [ 16 ] ). Given these limitations, our data suggest that sex steroids do not alter renal cell sensitivity to the cytotoxic effects of this Stx-1.

  • Therefore, a question arises if the rise in LH, reflecting diminution of sex steroids, can also contribute to the initiation and progression of neurodegeneration.

  • IL-8, MCP-1 and RANTES gene expression are regulated by the redox responsive transcription factor NF-κB [ 18 20 23 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 41 42 43 44 ] . The NF-κB signaling pathways have been shown to be differentially affected by antioxidants and glucocorticoid steroids [ 45 ] . To determine whether RSV and TNFα induction of chemokine expression might be mediated by different NF-κB signaling pathways we pretreated A549 cells with the glutathione precursor N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) or the synthetic glucocorticoid dexamethasone (DEX).
