We focused on five points (1)endogenous ligands for TLR4 (2)homeostasis inflammation (3)pathological condition (4)translational research, and (5)generation of knockout mice. We showed conclusion as below.
(1)We showed binding between TLR4/MD-2 and peptide SAA3 (20-86). Binding site of S100A8 was center domain of TLR4. (2)Bronchial Clara cells contribute to lung metastasis by amplifying SAA3. (3)We found that C1D, a DNA-binding protein, is a novel endogenous ligand for TLR9. We found that TLR4 signaling plays a role in resistance to BCR-ABL kinase inhibitor, imatinib, in Chronic myeloid leukemia. (4)We identified mTOC as a Cerastramycin binding protein. We created human SAA3 ELISA system to quantitate SAA3 protein in culture media. We are investigating whether KB-R7785, an ADAM12 inhibitor, effect on lung metastasis by reduction of cleaved form of ephrin-A1. (5)To examine the homeostasis inflammation related to S100A8 and SAA3, we are trying to establish knockout mouse system.
