26106150 Data suggest that serum amyloid P (SAP) activates CD209 DC-SIGN to regulate the innate immune system differently from C-reactive protein (CRP), and that DC-SIGN is a target for antifibrotics.
25084341 Here, it is reported that X-ray analysis of the SAP complex with CPHPC and cadmium ions provides higher resolution detail of the interaction than is observed with calcium ions.
25024390 plasma protein serum amyloid P binds to FcgammaRI on monocytes to inhibit fibrocyte differentiation, and binds to FcgammaRIIa on neutrophils to reduce neutrophil adhesion.
24933153 The effects of SAP and Xiapex (Collagenase Clostridium histolyticum) on fibrocytes derived from Dupuytren's disease, was evaluated.
24695531 Compared to wildtype C57BL/6 mice, we find that in Apcs-/- "SAP knock-out" mice, bleomycin induces a more persistent inflammatory response and increased fibrosis.
23992930 In the late phase post-myocardial infarct there is a coordinated decrease in immune response-inflammation proteins, except for SAP which showed an increase related to the specific activation of the classical complement pathway.
23966633 These results indicate that SAP functions as a host defense factor, similar to other peptidoglycan recognition proteins and nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain-like receptors.
23600950 Human SAP binds phosphoethanolamine, while rabbits seem to have low levels of SAP that bind to a lesser extent.
23544079 SAP may act as an effective receptor mimic to limit influenza A virus infection of airway epithelial cells.
23527487 [review] On the basis of structure, serum amyloid P component is a prototype of the short pentraxin family.
