Introduction: What they say:  

A recent study from the Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China shows that “Sox2 functions as a sequence-specific DNA sensor in neutrophils to initiate innate immunity against microbial infection.” This study was published, in the 2 March 2015 issue of the Journal “Nature Immunology” [the number one journal in immunological research with an impact factor of  24.973], by Drs. Zusen Fan, Xia and others.


What we say

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, the Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Oats as an Immune booster: Oats-based immune enhancement therapy: Avenanthramide C, found in Oats, increases SOX2 expression, and promotes innate immunity against bacterial infection, via down-regulation of its target gene


From Research Findings to Therapeutic Opportunity:

This study suggests, for the first time,  Avenanthramide Cby decreasing the expression of its target gene, it may : (1) increase the expression of Sox2; (2) increase the ability of Sox2 to recognize bacterial DNA in the cytoplasm; and (3) promote innate immunity against bacterial infection. 

Figure 1. Avenanthramide C-based immune enhancement therapy. Avenanthramide C, by increasing the expression of its target genes, it increases the expression of Sox-2 and its downstream components in the signaling pathway. And, thereby, promotes anit-bacterial immunity.

Figure 2. Avenanthramide C may increase resistance against bacterial infection through induction of Sox2

Together,pharmacological formulations encompassing “Avenanthramide C  or its analogs,  either alone or in combination with other drugs,” may be used to (1) enhance innate immunity against bacterial infection; and (2) promote bacterial resistance (figs. 1-2).
