Abstract: Asthma and other allergic inflammation diseases are major contributors to hospitalizations and deaths worldwide. These diseases are the result of over reactive immune responses initiating pro inflammatory mediators. These CD4+ T helper type 2 (Th2) mediated diseases are driven by the transcription factor GATA3 as well as the cytokines IL-4 and IL-13. HuR, an RNA binding protein (RBP), has been shown to posttranscriptionally regulate many early response genes, including these critical allergy mediators.
