A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

B cell activating factor (BAFF) plays a key role in promoting B lymphocyte activation. We investigated whether danger signals induce BAFF secretion by cultured salivary gland epithelial cells (SGEC), which are the target of primary Sjögren’s syndrome, a prototypic systemic autoimmune disease. SGEC cultures were established from minor salivary glands obtained from ten patients with pSS or sicca symptoms. BAFF mRNA and protein were measured after stimulation of the different Toll-like receptors (TLR) by agonists or viruses. The expression of TLR2, -3, and -7 was detected in SGEC. Poly (I:C) (a synthetic TLR3 agonist) and reovirus-1 (a dsRNA virus) induced high expression of BAFF mRNA (multiplied by a factor of 246 +/- 39 (SEM) and 347 +/- 66, respectively) and of BAFF protein secretion (58.49 +/- 4.34 pg/mL and 69.73 +/- 5.67). Inhibition of both the endosomal (by chloroquine) and IFN (by anti-IFNAR antibody) pathways partly inhibited BAFF expression. Treatment with both dsRNA virus and poly (I:C) induced high levels of BAFF mRNA and protein expression by SGEC, through pathways dependent on and independent of TLR and dependent on and independent of IFN. BAFF induction by target organs of autoimmune diseases after viral infection may be a link between innate immunity and autoimmunity.
