Transitional changes in the CRP structure lead to the exposure of proinflammatory binding sites

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5264208
PMID: 28112148
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms14188

[…] default values) to relieve any steric conflicts that may have arisen during the docking or modelling process. The pentameric pCRP* model was constructed by manually moving the individual subunits of pCRP apart until the interacting side chains were >4 Å apart () or the globular head of complement C1q (PDB ID: 1PK6; ref. ) was able to dock inside the inner annular void, bringing the known interact […]


Complement factor H binding of monomeric C reactive protein downregulates proinflammatory activity and is impaired with at risk polymorphic CFH variants

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4785391
PMID: 26961257
DOI: 10.1038/srep22889

[…] es showing mCRP-induced IL-8 and CCL2 upregulation in endothelial cells and neutrophils. By contrast, our results are at odds with a previous report of increased IL-8 expression on ARPE-19 cells upon pCRP stimulation. In this regard, we notice that Wang and colleagues used higher, supraphysiological concentrations of pCRP (up to 100 μg/mL), well above those associated with AMD risk.In our hands, F […]


The in vitro and in vivo effects of constitutive light expression on a bioluminescent strain of the mouse enteropathogen Citrobacter rodentium

PMCID: 4924136
PMID: 27366640
DOI: 10.7717/peerj.2130

[…] dentium, reads were also mapped to the sequenced plasmids pCROD1 (Genbank accession number FN543503.1), pCROD2 (Genbank accession number FN543504.1), pCROD3 (Genbank accession number FN543505.1), and pCRP3 (Genbank accession number NC_003114). […]


The Binding of Monomeric C Reactive Protein (mCRP) to Integrins αvβ3 and α4β1 Is Related to Its Pro Inflammatory Action

PLoS One
PMCID: 3973595
PMID: 24695572
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0093738

[…] Chemotaxis was measured in modified Boyden chambers (Transwells). 50 μg/ml mCRP or pCRP in 600 μl RPMI 1640 medium was placed in the lower chamber, and U937 cells (5×105 cells per well) were placed in the upper chamber. In some case, U937 cells were preincubated with antibodies (25 […]


Transposon and Deletion Mutagenesis of Genes Involved in Perchlorate Reduction in Azospira suillum PS

PMCID: 3884062
PMID: 24381299
DOI: 10.1128/mBio.00769-13

[…] n). The digested products were then ligated into the vector using T4 ligase (NEB). The broad-host-range plasmid pBBR1MCS2 was used as the backbone for the complementation vectors (). For three genes (pcrP, pcrS, and pcrR), pBBR1MCS2 and the amplified gene with its promoter were digested, purified, and ligated as described above. For the pcrABCD and cld complementation vectors, the pcrA promoter wa […]


Opposing effects of monomeric and pentameric C reactive protein on endothelial progenitor cells

PMCID: 3149664
PMID: 21562922
DOI: 10.1007/s00395-011-0191-y

[…] Total RNA was extracted from 2 × 106 EPCs after 72 h of culture in EGM-2 medium in the presence or absence of mCRP (1 μg/ml), pCRP (5 μg/ml) or PBS. The RNA was obtained using Qiagen® RNeasy protect mini kit™ following the manufacturer’s instructions. RNA concentration and integrity was analysed by NanoDrop (Thermo Fischer S […]
