beta7 integrin

Differential molecular and anatomical basis for B cell migration into the peritoneal cavity and omental milky spots.

The constitutive migration of B cells from the circulation into the peritoneal cavity and back is essential for peritoneal B cell homeostasis and function. However, the molecular machinery and the anatomical basis for these migratory processes have …

Role of beta7 integrin and the chemokine/chemokine receptor pair CCL25/CCR9 in modeled TNF-dependent Crohn's disease.

BACKGROUND & AIMS: In the present work, we address the requirement for intestinal-specific homing molecules, the chemokine/chemokine receptor pair CCL25/CCR9 and beta7 integrin, in the pathogenesis of the CD8(+) T cell-dependent Tnf(DeltaARE) mouse …

Adult murine hematopoiesis can proceed without beta1 and beta7 integrins.

The function of alpha4beta1 and alpha4beta7 integrins in hematopoiesis is controversial. While some experimental evidence suggests a crucial role for these integrins in retention and expansion of progenitor cells and lymphopoiesis, others report a …

Monoclonal antibody against beta7 integrins, but not beta7 deficiency, attenuates intestinal allograft rejection in mice.

BACKGROUND: beta7 integrins mediate homing and retention of lymphocytes to the normal and inflamed small bowel in a tissue-selective fashion. In the present study, we investigated the expression of beta7 integrins after small bowel transplantation …

Beta7 integrins contribute to skin graft rejection.

BACKGROUND: Because integrins alpha4beta7 and alphaEbeta7 contribute to epidermotropism of T-cells during skin inflammation, we sought to study their role in skin allograft rejection. METHODS: Wild-type (WT) (beta7+/+) and beta7 gene knockout …

beta7 Integrin expression is not required for the localization of T cells to the intestine and colitis pathogenesis.

beta7 Integrins have been shown to have an important role in the localization of T cells to the intestine. Utilizing two different experimental mouse models of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), this study was undertaken to determine if beta7 integrin …

Protective intestinal anti-rotavirus B cell immunity is dependent on alpha 4 beta 7 integrin expression but does not require IgA antibody production.

Rotavirus (RV) is the main cause of severe gastroenteritis in young children; protection has been correlated with intestinal Ab responses. Using a mouse model of RV infection and beta(7)-deficient (beta(7)(-/-)) mice, which do not express …

alpha(4)beta(7) independent pathway for CD8(+) T cell-mediated intestinal immunity to rotavirus.

Rotavirus (RV), which replicates exclusively in cells of the small intestine, is the most important cause of severe diarrhea in young children worldwide. Using a mouse model, we show that expression of the intestinal homing integrin alpha(4)ss(7) is …

Despite high levels of lymphocyte homing receptor alpha4beta7 integrin after small bowel allotransplantation, it is not critical for rejection.

Beta7 integrins contribute to demyelinating disease of the central nervous system.

A role for alpha4 integrins in different forms of the multiple sclerosis- like disease experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) has been demonstrated, but the individual contributions of alpha4beta1, alpha4beta7, and the related alphaEbeta7 …
