Todo sobre Superantigenos - Dermatología Peruana

Todo sobre Superantigenos - Dermatología Peruana | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it

Los superantígenos son proteínas bacterianas y virales con capacidad de estimular gran número de células T; se conjugan con MHC-II de la célula presentadora de antígeno de manera diferente a los antígenos comunes, uniéndose a la subfamilia del V beta del TCR del linfocito T, siendo importante en el desencadenamiento de enfermedades sistémicas leves, intoxicación alimentaria o enfermedades severas como el síndrome del shock tóxico y síndrome de Kawasaki; algunas enfermedades cutáneas como la psoriasis y la dermatitis atópica; enfermedades autoinmunes como la artritis reumatoidea y la encefalomielitis alérgica experimental; deleción y apoptosis por superantígenos como el del Mitógeno de Mycoplasma artritidis (MAM), superantígenos virales como el del HIV-1; por ello la utilización de inmunoglobulinas endovenosas para controlar dichos cuadros, o la modificación de toxinas (superantígenos) constituyen avances importantes en el manejo de estas enfermedades autoinmunes.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

Muy buena revisión sobre superantígenos.

Algo antigua (1997)

Innate and adaptive effects of inflammasomes on T cell responses [Current Opinion in Immunology] http://t.co/ShoTXVIxDN
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Inflammasomes are protein complexes that form in response to pathogen-derived or host-derived stress signals. Their activation leads to the production of inflammatory cytokines and promotes a pyrogenic cell death process.

Regulation of intestinal homeostasis and immunity with probiotic lactobacilli

Regulation of intestinal homeostasis and immunity with probiotic lactobacilli | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it
Peter van Baarlen, Jerry M. Wells, Michiel Kleerebezem. The gut microbiota provide important stimuli to the human innate and adaptive immune system and co-mediate metabolic and immune homeostasis.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

The gut microbiota provide important stimuli to the human innate and adaptive immune system and co-mediate metabolic and immune homeostasis. Probiotic bacteria can be regarded as part of the natural human microbiota, and have been associated with improving homeostasis, albeit with different levels of success. Composition of microbiota, probiotic strain identity, and host genetic differences may account for differential modulation of immune responses by probiotics. Here, we review the mechanisms of immunomodulating capacities of specific probiotic strains, the responses they can induce in the host, and how microbiota and genetic differences between individuals may co-influence host responses and immune homeostasis.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

As previously demonstrated, the development of autoimmunity in humans is the endpoint of a complex process involving the immune system, hormonal and environmental factors in a genetically predisposed individual, hence the term ‘mosaic of autoimmunity’.

Immunology in the Gut Mucosa: a great Nature Immunology animation!!!!

Immunology in the Gut Mucosa: a great Nature Immunology animation!!!! | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it
Nature Immunology is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes papers of the highest quality and significance in all areas of immunology. Priority is given to work that provides fundamental insight into the workings of the immune system.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

The gut mucosa is the largest and most dynamic immunological environment of the body. It's often the first point of pathogen exposure and many microbes use it as a beachhead into the rest of the body. The gut immune system therefore needs to be ready to respond to pathogens but at the same time it is constantly exposed to innocuous environmental antigens, food particles and commensal microflora which need to be tolerated. Misdirected immune responses to harmless antigens are the underlying cause of food allergies and debilitating conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease. This animation introduces the key cells and molecular players involved in gut immunohomeostasis and disease.
