The eosinophil suspension was then incubated for 30 minutes at 37[degrees]C (5% C[O.sub.2]) with different concentration of leptin or OPN. After incubation of treated cells, the nonadhered cells were removed, and the remaining cells were washed twice with PBS.

OPN expression and STHMN1 expression were retrospectively evaluated by immunohistochemical staining in biopsy specimens.
OPN is produced by a variety of cell types, such as B and T cells, natural killer (NK) cells, NKT cells, macrophages, neutrophils, dendritic cells (DC), bone cells (osteoblasts and osteocytes), breast epithelial cells, and neurons, and high expression is detected in the bone, lung, liver, brain, joints, adipose tissue, and body fluids such as blood, urine, and milk [4-6].
OPN is produced by cells located in the osteoid matrix, and its name "osteopontin" denotes the property of acting as a bridge ("pons" in Latin) between cells and hydroxyapatite of bone [2, 6].
Osteopontin (OPN) is a highly negatively charged phosphoglycoprotein, which can be synthesized and secreted by different kinds of cells, including osteoblasts, fibroblasts, epithelial cells, vascular smooth muscle cells, a variety of tumor cells, activated T cells, and macrophages [1, 19-23].
Osteopontin (OPN) is a 44-kDa negatively-charged acidic hydrophilic, multifunctional protein encoded by the SPP1 gene that is located on chromosome 4q21-25 and consists of 7 exons (Sato et al., 1999; Mazzali et al., 2002; Forton et al., 2002).
OPN was demonstrated to induce adipose tissue inflammation and to increase pro-inflammatory cytokines release in the bloodstream (6).
The glomeruli, mesangial cells, and the RPC isolated from Pa28[alpha][beta]DKO mice had lower levels of OPN and MCP-1 under high glucose conditions.
The more we can limit peak stormwater flow, the less infrastructure costs the city will incur and peak flood crests in the future will be lower," explains Matthew Stewart, an architect and project manager for OPN. "This prompted the use of pervious pavement, underground detention basins, irrigation storage tanks, and a green roof."
Between May 2003 and May 2013, a retrospective cohort study was performed to evaluate perioperative outcomes among patients who underwent RPN and to compare these results with those of a matched cohort of patients who were selected among the OPN database.
OPN was reserved for patients who were uninephric, had compromised kidney function, or had large tumors in an unfavorable location.
