CDF

ISO 4217 code for the Congolese franc. It was issued in 1997 when Zaire became the Democratic Republic of the Congo (not to be confused with the Republic of the Congo). The franc replaced the new zaire.

Our studies were able to trace a biochemical pathway through which adverse life circumstances - fight-or-flight stress responses - can activate the IL6 gene.
Whether the present IL6 promoter SNP is an independent determinant of basal physical/aerobic performance should be elucidated further in a larger cohort.
List of proteins analysed in Phase II samples: interleukin (IL)2, IL6, IL8, IL10, and tumor necrosis factor alpha, IL1[beta], IL4, IL5, IL7, IL13, interferon alpha, interferon gamma, eotaxin, fractalkine, interferon gamma-induced protein 10, granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor, epidermal growth factor, fibroblast growth factor 2, granulocyte colony-stimulating factor, melanoma growth stimulatory activity/growth-related oncogene, monocyte chemotactic protein-1, monocyte chemotactic protein-3, macrophage derived chemokine, macrophage inflammatory protein 1 alpha, macrophage inflammatory protein 1 beta, soluble CD40 ligand, transforming growth factor alpha and vascular endothelial growth factor) using the milliplex HCYTOMAG-60SK and HSCYTMAG-60SK kits (Millipore, Billerica, MA).
IL6 promoter polymorphisms have been well characterized in a number of healthy and disease populations, and 2 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been studied in detail--the common -174G>C variant (8) and the less frequent -572G>C allele (9).
Inducible formation of breast cancer stem cells and their dynamic equilibrium with non-stem cancer cells via IL6 secretion.
We tested the regulation of the proinflammatory genes CD14, IL6, IL8, monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP1), CC12, PAH, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFa) and the anti-inflammatory genes CD163, interleukin 1 receptor antagonist (ILIra), and IL10, all reported to code for secreted proteins that are up-regulated in obesity (Fain 2010).
The pertinent differences are statistically significant for IL12p70, IL8 and IL6, and borderline significant (0.
Importantly, IL6 levels were shown to be reduced in the Lodotra group but remained constant in the standard prednisone group indicating that this reformulation of prednisone was exerting a specific inhibitory action on what is thought to be a key biological marker of the inflammatory process in RA.
Several of the gene variants have shown evidence for interaction with smoking [LPL (21), APOE (20), IL6 (22), PECAM1 (17)] or a baseline systolic BP of [greater than or equal to] 160 mmHg [AGTR2 (18), BDKRB2 (16)], and we included these interactions in a 3rd model.
IL6 titres in the supernatants were determined with a commercial ELISA specific for mouse IL6 (R & D DuoSet DY406).
