Profile Picture

Eicosanoids are lipid mediators derived from arachidonic acid that have been implicated in diverse inflammatory and immune responses. The cysteinyl leukotrienes (cys-LTs), leukotriene (LT) C4, LTD4, and LTE4, are a group of bioactive eicosanoids that are produced by hematopoietic cells, such as mast cells, macrophages, and dendritic cells. They constrict bronchial smooth muscle, increase vascular permeability, and promote fibrosis. LTC4 synthase, an integral membrane protein, is the critical enzyme for the cys-LT biosynthesis. There are two classical G protein-coupled receptors for the cys-LTs, termed CysLT1R and CysLT2R. We are focused on elucidating the role of cys-LTs in several models of innate and adaptive immunity and inflammation with mice null for LTC4 synthase and on clarifying the particular receptor functions in these models with mice null for CysLT1R or CysLT2R. We have recently found that there is a novel cys-LT receptor preferential for LTE4 in mice lacking both CysLT1R and CysLT2R. We have also found that an orphan G protein-coupled receptor GPR17 is a negative regulator of the CysLT1R-mediated vascular permeability in vivo. Ongoing projects include (1) the molecular identification and characterization of the LTE4 receptor and (2) the role of GPR17 in allergen-induced pulmonary inflammation.

Dectin-2 is a C-type lectin receptor that associates with the Fc receptor gamma chain to activate the signal through Syk. We have demonstrated that Dectin-2 on dendritic cells can bind to extracts from house dust mite in a mannose-dependent manner, resulting in production of cys-LTs. We are investigating the role of Dectin-2 in allergen-induced pulmonary inflammation.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
