Reaserch

Cytokines are polypeptide hormones that mainly regulate hematopoiesis and immune system, and induce growth, differentiation and functional changes of cells. Cytokines are essential for homeostasis and defense against infectious diseases through immunoregulation. Therefore, disorders of cytokine functions are strongly related to autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. However, regulatory mechanism of signaling of cytokines remains to be investigated. We have found the CIS/SOCS family and the Sprouty/Spred family, which are deeply involved in the regulation of immune system and hematopoiesis. Furthermore, we also found that these genes are involved in cancer, inflammation, obesity and allergy. We are trying to uncover the molecular mechanism of cytokine signaling regulation as well as its relationship to diseases.
