Mechanisms and regulation of Toll-like receptor signaling in Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection

2015/16-2019/20 • $138,456 • PI
Mechanism of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection remains incompletely defined. We showed that Toll-like receptor (TLR) signaling pathways (the MyD88-IRAK pathway and the TRIF-IRF3/7 pathway) are activated by P. aeruginosa . Activation signals are subsequently inhibited by the negative signals that...

Bioactive paper that can detect and deactivate dangerous bacteria and viruses in food and water will deliver health benefits around the world. Bioactive Paper is a made-in-Canada concept articulated in the first phase (2005-2010) of the Sentinel Bioactive Paper Network, an NSERC strategic...

A role of TRPV6 calcium channel inhibition on cytokine and chemokine production by epithelial cells

2015/16 • $25,000 • PI
Peptides derived from soricidin (C-peptides, eg SOR-C13 and SOR-C27), the paralytic peptide in saliva of the Northern Short-tailed shrew (Blarina brevicauda) bind the calcium ion channel TRPV6 (Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid family number 6). Binding of the C-peptides to TRPV6 inhibits...
