B Cell Lipid Rafts Regulate Both Peptide-Dependent and Peptide-Independent APC-T Cell Interaction

Formation of an immunological synapse (IS) between APCs and T CD4(+) lymphocytes is a key event in the initiation and the termination of the cognate immune response. We have analyzed the contribution of the APC to IS formation and report the...

Re-establishment of VWF-dependent Weibel-Palade bodies in VWD endothelial cells

Type 3 von Willebrand disease (VWD) is a severe hemorrhagic defect in humans. We now identify the homozygous mutation in the Chapel Hill strain of canine type 3 VWD that results in premature termination of von Willebrand factor (VWF) protein...

Chemokine receptor CCR7 induces intracellular signaling that inhibits apoptosis of mature dendritic cells

Acquisition of CCR7 expression is an important phenotype change during dendritic cell (DC) maturation that endows these cells with the capability to migrate to lymph nodes. We have analyzed the possible role of CCR7 on the regulation of the survival...

p38 MAPK inhibition enhances PS-341 (bortezomib)-induced cytotoxicity against multiple myeloma cells

Although PS-341 (bortezomib) is a promising agent to improve multiple myeloma (MM) patient outcome, 65% of patients with relapsed and refractory disease do not respond. We have previously shown that heat shock protein (Hsp)27 is upregulated after...

Tec kinase migrates to the T cell-APC interface independently of ist pleckstrin homology domain

Tec is the prototypical member of the Tec tyrosine kinases family, which plays an important role in T cell signaling. We show in this study that Tec translocates to the immunological synapse when a T cell contacts a dendritic cell. Surprisingly, the...

Neuromedin U: a Myb-regulated autocrine growth factor for human myeloid leukemias

The c-myb proto-oncogene has been implicated in leukemogenesis, but possible mechanisms remain ill defined. To gain further insight to this process, we used transcript profiling in K562 cells expressing a dominant-negative Myb (MERT) protein. A total...

Role of Rho/ROCK and p38 MAP kinase pathways in TGF-beta-mediated Smad-dependent growth inhibition of human breast carcinoma cells in vivo

TGF-beta is a multifunctional cytokine known to exert its biological effects through a variety of signaling pathways of which Smad signaling is considered to be the main mediator. At present, the Smad-independent pathways, their interactions with...

Visualizing the site and dynamics of IgG salvage by the MHC class I-related receptor, FcRn

The MHC class I-related receptor, FcRn, plays a central role in regulating the serum levels of IgG. FcRn is expressed in endothelial cells, suggesting that these cells may be involved in maintaining IgG levels. We have used live cell imaging of...

Interleukin-2-induced survival of natural killer (NK) cells involving phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase-dependent reduction of ceramide through acid sphingomyelinase, sphingomyelin synthase and glucosylceramide synthase

Interleukin 2 (IL-2) rescued human natural killer (NK) KHYG-1 cells from apoptosis along with a reduction of ceramide. Conversely, an increase of ceramide inhibited IL-2-rescued survival. IL-2 deprivation-induced activation of acid sphingomyelinase...

Pro-angiogenic signaling by endothelial presence of CEA-related cell adhesion molecule-1 (CEACAM1)

Here, we demonstrate the expression of carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule-1 (CEACAM1) in angiogenic sprouts but not in large mother blood vessels within tumor tissue. Correspondingly, only human microvascular endothelial cells...
