Interleukin 10 regulates cell surface and soluble LIR-2 (CD85d) expression on dendritic cells resulting in T cell hyporesponsiveness in vitro

Dendritic cells (DC) are unique in their ability to stimulate naive T cells to proliferate and to differentiate into effector T cells. DC, however, can also inhibit T cell activation and play a role in central and peripheral tolerance. IL-10 has been...

HAX-1, identified by differential display reverse transcription polyerase chain reaction, is overexpressed in lesional psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by epidermal hyperplasia and an inflammatory infiltrate. The normal differentiation from basal to granular keratinocytes with subsequent apoptosis and cornification is disturbed in the...

Mammalian PAR-1 determines epithelial lumen polarity by organizing the microtubule cytoskeleton

Epithelial differentiation involves the generation of luminal surfaces and of a noncentrosomal microtubule (MT) network aligned along the polarity axis. Columnar epithelia (e.g., kidney, intestine, and Madin-Darby canine kidney [MDCK] cells) generate...

Lymphotoxin and lipopolysaccharide induce NF-kappaB-p52 generation by a co-translational mechanism

The 'classical' NF-kappaB activation pathway proceeds via IkappaB kinase (IKK)-beta/gamma-mediated phosphorylation, induced ubiquitination and the degradation of small IkappaBs. An alternative, NF-kappaB-inducing kinase and IKK-alpha-dependent...

Identification of an angiogenic factor that when mutated causes susceptibility to Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome

Angiogenic factors are critical to the initiation of angiogenesis and maintenance of the vascular network. Here we use human genetics as an approach to identify an angiogenic factor, VG5Q, and further define two genetic defects of VG5Q in patients...

ERM proteins regulate cytoskeleton relaxation promoting T cell-APC conjugation

During activation, T cells associate with antigen-presenting cells, a dynamic process that involves the formation of a broad area of intimate membrane contact known as the immunological synapse. The molecular intermediates that link initial antigen...

Human parvovirus B19 nonstructural protein (NS1) induces cell cycle arrest at G1 phase

Human parvovirus B19 infects predominantly erythroid precursor cells, leading to inhibition of erythropoiesis. This erythroid cell damage is mediated by the viral nonstructural protein 1 (NS1) through an apoptotic mechanism. We previously...

B-Myb-Dependent Regulation of c-Myc Expression by Cytosolic Phospholipase A2

Cytosolic phospholipase A(2) (cPLA(2)) cleaves membrane phospholipids to release arachidonic acid, initiating lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase pathways. Mice lacking a gene for cPLA(2) suggested important roles of the protein in allergic responses,...

YY1 transcription factor down-regulates expression of CCR5, a major co-receptor for HIV-1

Expression of CCR5, a major coreceptor for human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), is regulated by a number of transcription factors. Here we report that the YY1 transcription factor down-regulates CCR5 promoter activity and that overexpression...

The Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV/HHV-8) K1 protein induces expression of angiogenic and invasion factors

Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV/HHV-8) has been linked to Kaposi's sarcoma, primary effusion lymphoma, and multicentric Castleman's disease. In addition to endothelial cells and B lymphocytes, KSHV also has been shown to infect...
