Avian macrophage: effector functions in health and disease


By: M. Qureshi n, C. Heggen n & I. Hussain*

author keywords: macrophage; macrophage-pathogen interaction; macrophage-environmental interaction; macrophage functions; avian
MeSH headings : Animals; Bird Diseases / immunology; Bird Diseases / microbiology; Bird Diseases / parasitology; Bird Diseases / virology; Macrophages / immunology; Macrophages / microbiology; Macrophages / parasitology; Macrophages / virology
TL;DR: The basic profiles of severalmacrophage effector functions are described and the interaction of macrophages with various pathogens as well as the effect of genetic and environmental factors on macrophage functional modulation is described. (via Semantic Scholar)

The expression and regulation of inducible nitric oxide synthase gene differ in macrophages from chickens of different genetic background


By: I. Hussain n & M. Qureshi n

author keywords: macrophages; chickens; genetic lines; iNOS; gene regulation; transcription
MeSH headings : Animals; Cells, Cultured; Chickens / genetics; Chickens / immunology; Chickens / metabolism; Gene Expression Regulation, Enzymologic; Lipopolysaccharides / pharmacology; Macrophages / enzymology; Macrophages / immunology; Nitric Oxide Synthase / genetics; Nitric Oxide Synthase Type II; RNA, Messenger / genetics; RNA, Messenger / metabolism; Species Specificity
TL;DR: These studies suggest that the previously reported genetically-based difference in iNOS mRNA expression further translates into differences iniNOS enzyme activity, and that the iN OS gene in chickens is transcriptionally regulated. (via Semantic Scholar)

1998 article

Understanding immunology in disease development and control

Qureshi, M. A., Hussain, I., & Heggen, C. L. (1998, August). POULTRY SCIENCE, Vol. 77, pp. 1126–1129.

By: M. Qureshi n, I. Hussain n & C. Heggen n

author keywords: immunosurveillance; cytokines; immunomodulation
MeSH headings : Animals; Antibody Formation; Chickens; Communicable Disease Control; Communicable Diseases / immunology; Communicable Diseases / veterinary; Immunity, Cellular; Immunocompetence; Immunologic Surveillance; Poultry; Poultry Diseases / immunology; Poultry Diseases / prevention & control
TL;DR: The integrity of the immune system and its functional modulation by factors such as genetics, nutrition, and prophylactic approaches continue to be an important focus of attention in current poultry research and production efforts. (via Semantic Scholar)

Nitric oxide synthase activity and mRNA expression in chicken macrophages

POULTRY SCIENCE, 76(11), 1524–1530.

By: I. Hussain n & M. Qureshi n

author keywords: nitric oxide synthase; macrophages; L-arginine; chicken
MeSH headings : Animals; Arginine / analysis; Arginine / pharmacology; Blotting, Northern / veterinary; Cell Line; Cell Line, Transformed; Chickens / metabolism; Dose-Response Relationship, Drug; Lipopolysaccharides / pharmacology; Lymphokines / pharmacology; Macrophages / chemistry; Macrophages / enzymology; Macrophages / metabolism; Nitric Oxide Synthase / analysis; Nitric Oxide Synthase / genetics; Nitric Oxide Synthase / metabolism; Nitrites / metabolism; RNA, Messenger / analysis; RNA, Messenger / genetics; Time Factors
TL;DR: These studies showed that macrophages from varying sources differ in NOS activity and implied that genetic background may dictate the extent of arginine-mediated contribution in various biological and immunological functions. (via Semantic Scholar)
