A receptor that binds to
extracellular ceramide inhibits
mast cell activation and
allergic responses in vivo.
The bacterial protein flagellin
can promote allergic asthma by
activating Toll-like receptor 5.
The cysteine-rich proteins of Arabidopsis
egg and central cells enable
fusion with just one sperm each.
A protein that promotes NF-κB
signaling during the immune
response is also required for
phagocytosis independently of
A metabolite is identified that
may help cancer cells coordinate
their mode of energy generation
with nutrient conditions.
