Association between platelet endothelial cellular adhesion molecule
1 (PECAM-1/ CD31) polymorphisms and acute myocardial infarction: a study in patients from Sicily.
37,38] The pattern of integrins, a type of cellular adhesion molecule
, expressed by basal cell carcinoma was similar to patterns expressed by the more aggressive malignant melanoma.
3], a cellular adhesion molecule
that's also a growth factor for endothelial cells.
The mechanism by which NO inhibits the expression of cellular adhesion molecule
is via inhibiting the activation of the pro-inflammatory transcription factor, NF-[kappa]B (31,103-105).
The above mentioned process is in part mediated by cellular adhesion molecules
(CAMs), which attach to the endothelial cell membrane in response to activation by various inflammatory cytokines, like interleukin-1, tumor necrosis factor, and interferon2.
It is well-known that cellular adhesion molecules
have effects on tumor cell invasion and metastasis.
leprae, lesional infiltration by activated T cells, enhanced local expression of inflammatory cytokines such as TNF-a and cellular adhesion molecules
, increased local macrophage activation and increases in levels of pro-inflammatory circulating cytokines in the blood.
5) These contradictory results encouraged us to perform a study to determine the expression of select proto-oncogenes and cellular adhesion molecules
, with a view to defining a marker that helped identify a biologically aggressive neoplasm.
The outcomes were FMD and markers of endothelial dysfunction, including cellular adhesion molecules
, inhibitors and promoters of fibrinolysis, adiponectin, glucose, insulin, C-reactive protein (CRP), lipids, and apolipoprotein B.
Several circulating inflammation factors such as cellular adhesion molecules
and cytokines are associated with cardiovascular disease (8,12,13).
