These products played an important role in the removal of FS cells in the EPC process.
The removal percentage for FS cells (5x [10.sup.1], and 5 x [10.sup.2] in ml) dramatically increased in presence of ZnO photocatalyst nanoparticles and the LED UV-A lamp.
The generation of transgenic rats (S100[beta]-GFP rats) that express green fluorescent protein in S100[beta]-positive pituitary FS cells in the anterior pituitary [120] led to the characterization of S100[beta]-positive cells [86, 121] and transcripts of CXCL10 (IFN-[gamma] inducible protein 10 kDa, IP-10) were identified in a subpopulation of these cells.
Interestingly, rat FS cells also express CXCR4 and secrete CXCL12, which acts as a potent chemoattractant for these cells.
Immune-like functions of FS cells were impaired since curcumin downregulated Toll-like receptor 4, reduced nuclear factor-kappaB expression and suppressed bacterial endotoxin-induced interleukin-6 (IL-6) secretion.
