Molecular mechanism of Be2+-ion binding to HLA-DP2: tetrahedral coordination, conformational changes and multi-ion binding.

Susmita De, Gopika Sabu, Martin Zacharias,

The chemistry of beryllium is rather unusual, however, less explored as compared to other main group elements. This is mainly attributed to the high toxicity of beryllium, leading to chronic granulomatous pneumonitis, called chronic beryllium disease (CBD). It has been reported that Be2+-ion binding to the human leukocyte antigen protein ... Read more >>

Understanding the Localization of Berylliosis: Interaction of Be2+ with Carbohydrates and Related Biomimetic Ligands.

Matthias Müller, Magnus R Buchner,

The interplay of metal ions with polysaccharides is important for the immune recognition in the lung. Due to the localization of beryllium associated diseases to the lung, it is likely that beryllium carbohydrate complexes play a vital role for the development of berylliosis. Herein, we present a detailed study on ... Read more >>

New insight in beryllium toxicity excluding exposure to beryllium-containing dust: accumulation patterns, target organs, and elimination.

Evgenii Drobyshev, Larisa Kybarskaya, Sergey Dagaev, Nikolay Solovyev,

There is much contradiction between different experimental studies on beryllium (Be) toxicity. The majority of studies focus on occupational pathologies, caused by the exposure to Be dust. However, Be pollution may affect wide population groups through other exposure routes. The discrepancies between experimental studies may be attributed to the lack ... Read more >>

Els Beijer, Bob Meek, Hans Kromhout, H Wouter van Es, Kees Seldenrijk, Marjolein Drent, Jos M Rooijackers, Marcel Veltkamp,

A diagnosis of silicosis is made on the basis of exposure and typical radiological findings, according to the ILO's International Classification of Radiographs of Pneumoconiosis. Radiological patterns of silicosis can, however, resemble sarcoidosis. Sarcoidosis is a multi-systemic disorder of unknown etiology, although a role for initiating inorganic triggers such as ...

Felipe de Galiza Barbosa, Marcelo Araujo Queiroz, Rafael Fernandes Nunes, Larissa Bastos Costa, Elaine Caroline Zaniboni, José Flavio Gomes Marin, Giovanni Guido Cerri, Carlos Alberto Buchpiguel,

PSMA PET imaging was originally used to assess biochemical recurrence of prostate cancer (PCa), but its clinical use was promptly extended to detection, staging and therapy response assessment. The expanding use of PSMA PET worldwide has also revealed PSMA ligand uptake in diverse nonprostatic diseases, which raised questions about the ... Read more >>

Isothermal Titration Calorimetry of Be2+ with Phosphatidylserine Models Guides All-Atom Force-Field Development for Lipid-Ion Interactions.

Alison N Leonard, Jeffery B Klauda, Sergei Sukharev,

Beryllium has multiple industrial applications but exposure to its dust during manufacturing is associated with developing chronic inflammation in lungs known as berylliosis. Besides binding to specific alleles of MHC-II, Be2+ was recently found to compete with Ca2+ for binding sites on phosphatidylserine-containing membranes and inhibit recognition of this lipid ...

A Pilot Study Assessing the Ability of 5-Aminosalicylic Acid to Modulate the Immune Response in Chronic Beryllium Disease.

Brian J. Day, Jie Huang, Briana Q. Barkes, May Gillespie, Li Li, Lisa A. Maier,

Chronic beryllium disease is a granulomatous lung disease, characterized by the accumulation of macrophages and beryllium-specific CD4 T-cells that proliferate and produce T-helper cell type 1 cytokines. Previous studies indicate that beryllium-mediated oxidative stress enhances cytokine response in chronic beryllium disease CD4 T-cells. 5-Aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) is currently used to ...

Polymorphism of FCGR3A gene in chronic beryllium disease.

Bing Liu, Lisa A Maier, Nabeel Hamzeh, Kristyn MacPhail, Margaret M Mroz, Hongbo Liu, Li Li,

Previously we showed that alveolar macrophages (AMs) from patients with chronic beryllium disease (CBD) and beryllium sensitization (BeS) demonstrated significantly greater cell surface CD16 (encoded by the FCGR3A gene) than controls. We hypothesized that these differences were related to polymorphisms in the FCGR3A gene. This study was to determine the ... Read more >>
