Abstract (English)

Ficolins are members of the collectin family of proteins which in human and mice are able to recognize pathogen associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) on microbial surfaces. Ficolins trigger the activation of the innate immune system by initiating the complement cascade in serum upon binding to their specific PAMPs. Our group recently published the first observation on the cellular localization of ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Ficoline sind Mitglieder der Collectin-Proteinfamilie, die in Mensch und Maus Pathogen-assoziierte molekulare Muster (PAMP) auf Oberflächen erkennen. Ficoline starten das angeborene Immunsystem, indem sie im Serum nach Bindung an spezifische PAMP die Complement-Kaskade aktivieren. Unsere Arbeitsgruppe zeigte als erste, dass Maus-Ficolin-B intrazellulär lokalisiert ist. Im Gegensatz zum humanen ...
