Intracellular signal transduction of inflammatory receptors in alert cells in SIVA. In SIRS-associated vasculitis (SIVA), vascular endothelial cells have an intracellular signal transduction to activate transcriptional factors through inflammatory receptors. Nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) and activator protein-1 (AP-1) were activated in alert cells of vascular endothelial cells and lead to produce inflammatory mRNA.
