Network Overlap

The node-based overlap between this network and other networks is calculated as the Szymkiewicz-Simpson coefficient of their respective nodes. Up to the top 10 are shown below.

a(PUBCHEM:14235) increases r(MGI:"chitinase-like 1") View Subject | View Object

Indeed, YKL-40 mRNA expression was robustly activated in tissues surrounding the site of turpentine injection and its induction was accompanied by a very strong induction of both IL-1 and IL-6 mRNAs (Fig. 1A) PubMed:25681350

a(PUBCHEM:14235) increases r(MGI:"avian reticuloendotheliosis viral (v-rel) oncogene related B") View Subject | View Object

RelB mRNA expression was also strongly activated in vivo by turpentine in an IL-1-dependent model of irritant-induced sterile inflammation (Fig. 4E). PubMed:25681350

p(MGI:"chitinase-like 1") association p(MGI:"v-rel reticuloendotheliosis viral oncogene homolog A (avian)") View Subject | View Object

Since p65 subunit of NF-κB and STAT3 were previously implicated in cytokine-induced expression of YKL-40 (8, 34), we knocked down their expression in human astrocytes PubMed:25681350
