    Cytokines in Human Reproduction is the first reference to examine the role and effect of cytokines in reproduction, specifically how they cause (and prevent) disease. Edited by one of the foremost authorities in reproductive immunology, this important work includes the latest in cytokine research from leading specialists. Reproductive immunology refers to a field of medicine that studies interactions (or the absence of them) between the immune system and components related to the reproductive system, such as maternal immune tolerance towards the fetus, or immunological interactions across the blood-testis concept has been used by fertility clinics to explain the fertility problems, .

    Book Description. This work offers comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of cytokine biology in veterinary and agricultural species, describing the role of cytokines in physiological and pathological processes. It addresses recent advances and new information on the function of cytokines in reproduction, detoxification of xenobiotics, growth.

    Growth factors and cytokines have historically been classified into ‘families’ based on their apparent activity and/or impact on a given cell type, system, or tissue. Lately however, there has been an effort to establish naming based upon growth factor and cytokine receptors. Cytokines that are involved in chemotaxis of different leukocytes ex.

Cytokines in Human Reproduction is the first reference to examine the role and effect of cytokines in reproduction, specifically how they cause (and prevent) disease. Edited by one of the foremost authorities in reproductive immunology, this important work includes the latest in cytokine research from leading : Hardcover.

Cytokine, any of a group of small, short-lived proteins that are released by one cell to regulate the function of another cell, thereby serving as intercellular chemical nes effect changes in cellular behaviour that are important in a number of physiological processes, including reproduction, growth and development, and injury repair.

This volume presents a complete reference on the roles of cytokines in reproduction. Each chapter focuses on a different primary sex organ (testes, ovaries), stage of pregnancy (preterm, early pregnancy), or disease (endometriois, cancer).

Cytokines released from one cell affect the actions of other cells by binding to receptors on their surface. Through this process, cytokines help regulate the immune response. Cytokines are a broad and loose category of small proteins (~5–20 kDa) important in cell nes are peptides and cannot cross the lipid bilayer of cells to enter the nes have been shown to be involved in autocrine, paracrine and endocrine signaling as immunomodulating definite distinction from hormones is still part of.

Signal transduction from cytokines acting through the JAK/STAT pathway is attenuated via the suppressors of cytokine signalling (SOCS) family of cytoplasmic proteins that complete a negative feedback loop (Alexander, ).

Of the cytokines that utilize gp for signalling, LIF, IL-6 and IL have been implicated in the implantation process. LIFCited by: Cytokines are signaling proteins, usually less than 80 kDa in size, which regulate a wide range of biological functions including innate and acquired immunity, hematopoiesis, inflammation and repair, and proliferation through mostly extracellular signaling.

They are secreted by many cell types at local high concentrations and are involved in cell-to-cell interactions, have an effect on. Many cytokines are crucially important for reproductive processes and their role has been investigated in reproduction.

Cytokines are immunoregulatory molecules responsible for determining the nature of immune response. It has been suggested that lower index of TH1/TH2 immune response is supportive for physiological pregnancy 2, by: 7.

Innate Pattern Recognition Receptors (PRRs) on Dendritic cells and macrophages sense and respond to PAMPs and produce cytokines 2.

Cytokines start the inflammatory response (innate immune response) 3. Cytokines then help mount an adaptive immune response (based on recruitment and activation of leukocytes). ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: pages: illustrations ; 24 cm.

Cytokines are small secreted proteins released by cells have a specific effect on the interactions and communications between cells. Cytokine is a general name; other names include lymphokine (cytokines made by lymphocytes), monokine (cytokines made by monocytes), chemokine (cytokines with chemotactic activities), and interleukin (cytokines made by one leukocyte and Cited by: Chapter Cytokines Definition: secreted, low-molecular-weight proteins that regulate the nature, intensity and duration of the immune response by exerting a variety of effects on lymphocytes and/or other cells.

- Cytokines bind to specific receptors on target Size: 2MB. This book provides comprehensive coverage of the cytokines from a pharmacological approach. The chapters are presented in a consistent format allowing easy cross-reference, with sample diagrams and a summary table of essential facts for each chapter at the end of the book.

Interleukin-1, an established immune mediator, is one of the best-characterized members of the cytokine family. We describe what is known about the interactions between the interleukin-1 system and the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal, the hypothalamic pituitary-adrenal, and the hypothalamic-pituitary Cited by: Understanding immunology is increasingly important in obstetrics and gynecology.

Written primarily to meet the needs of practicing obstetricians and gynecologists, this book explores the role of immunological processes in reproduction. It presents immunologic concepts and illustrates important points with examples familiar to the clinician.

Gene ablation studies in mice can provide clues about the role of cytokines in human reproduction. Some genes associated with human reproduction have been identified using screening methods such as gene arrays, to be differentially expressed between fertile and infertile individuals or by:   The term "cytokine" is derived from a combination of two Greek words - "cyto" meaning cell and "kinos" meaning movement.
