Right now, in a scholarly study showing up in the March problem of the Journal of Clinical Investigation, Jvrg Kvhl and co-workers from the Cincinnati Children‘s Hospital Research Basis report that a small allergy-inducing proteins called C5a produced in the lungs can prevent or induce asthma, depending upon the timing of allergen exposure.

Whenever we perturbed APC function on the postsynaptic side, we saw adjustments on both relative sides of the synapse, indicating that APC organizes a proteins complex that communicates against the normal flow of visitors,’ said first writer Madelaine Rosenberg, PhD, an affiliate of the department of neuroscience at TUSM.
