Caption: FIGURE 1: The relationship between different pathophysiological processes implicated in AP and susceptibility genes is concluded as follows: PRSS1: cationic trypsinogen; SPINK1: serine protease inhibitor Kazal type 1; CTRC: chymotrypsin C; ACE: angiotensin- converting enzyme; MIF: migration inhibitory factor; iNOS: inducible nitric oxide synthase; COX-2: cyclooxygenases 2; MYO9B: myosin IXB; TLRs: toll-like receptors; MCP-1: monocyte chemoattractant protein-1; HBDs: human [beta]-defensin 2; MBL2: mannose-binding lectin
2; TNF-[alpha]: tumor necrosis factor-[alpha]; IL-10: interleukin 10; TLR4: toll-like receptor 4.

Researchers from Washington University, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research and the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, report a new finding that a part of the immune system called mannose-binding lectin
(MBL) is involved in targeting dengue viruses for destruction.
