Evidence that high teleromerase activity may induce a senescent-like growth arrest in human fibroblasts

Expression of the catalytic subunit of human telomerase (hTERT), in normal human fibroblasts allows them to escape replicative senescence. However, we have observed that populations of hTERT-immortalized human fibroblasts contain 3-20% cells with a...

The phosphatidylinositol phosphatase PTEN is under control of costimulation and regulates proliferation in human T cells

The phosphatidylinositol phosphatase gene PTEN is a dual specific phosphatase acting on phospho amino acids but also on three phosphorylated inositol phospholipids. Present results demonstrate that PTEN is inducible by costimulatory signals in human...

Efficient transfection method for primary cells

Transfection of primary cells and stem cells is a problem in the laboratory routine and further in tissue engineering and gene therapy. Most methods working effectively for cell lines in culture fail to transfect primary cells. Here we describe the...

RGS13 regulates germinal center B lymphocytes responsiveness to CXC chemokine ligand (CXCL)12 and CXCL13

Normal lymphoid tissue development and function depend upon directed cell migration. Providing guideposts for cell movement and positioning within lymphoid tissues, chemokines signal through cell surface receptors that couple to heterotrimeric G...

Weibel-Palade bodies recruit Rab27 by a content-driven, maturation-dependent mechanism that is independent of cell type

The identification of organelles is crucial for efficient cellular function, yet the basic underlying mechanisms by which this might occur have not been established. One group of proteins likely to be central to organelle identity is the Rab family...

Targeting combinatorial transcriptional complex assembly at specific modules within the interleukin-2 promoter by immunosuppressant SB203580

The proximal promoter sequence of the interleukin-2 (IL-2) gene contains a series of composite sites or modules that controls much of its responsiveness to environmental stimuli. The integrated targeting of these modules is therefore a major mode of...

Imaging antigen-induced PI3K activation in T cells

Imaging antigen-induced PI3K activation in T cells. Harriague J, Bismuth G. Departement de Biologie Cellulaire, Institut Cochin, INSERM U567, CNRS UMR 7627, Universite Rene Descartes, 22 rue Mechain, 75014 Paris, France. Activation of...

The cyclic adenosine 5' monophosphate response element modulator supresses IL-2 production in stimulated T cells by a chromatin-dependent mechanism

The production of IL-2 is tightly controlled by several transcription factors that bind to the IL-2 promoter. The cAMP response element modulator (CREM) is known to form complexes with CREB and bind to the -180 site of the IL-2 promoter in anergic...

Regulation of Bcl-2 expression by C/EBP in t(14;18) lymphoma cells

In follicular lymphomas with the t(14;18) translocation, there is increased expression of the bcl-2 gene, which is dependent upon regulatory elements within the bcl-2 5' flanking region and the immunoglobulin heavy-chain gene enhancers. We found that...

NF-kappaB regulates the expression of human complement receptor 2 gene

CR2 is a key regulator of the B cell response to Ag. Here we show that NF-kappaB enhances the expression of the human CR2 gene. Promoter truncation, deletion, and mutagenesis studies indicated a functional role for a consensus NF-kappaB promoter...
