  1. Inhibition of IL-2 inducible T-cell kinase alleviates T-cell activation and murine myocardial inflammation associated with CVB3 infection.

    Molecular Immunology 59(1):30 (2014) PMID 24462896

    We inhibited the ITK expression in Jurkat cells, primary human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC), and mouse splenocytes by ITK-specific siRNA. The inhibition efficiently suppressed cell proliferation (P<0.05). In order to inhibit ITK in vivo, th...
  2. Molecular cloning, expression and functional analysis of B-cell activating factor (BAFF) in yellow grouper, Epinephelus awoara.

    Molecular Immunology 59(1):64 (2014) PMID 24491489

    B cell activating factor (BAFF), a ligand belonging to the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) family is critical to B cell survival, proliferation, maturation and immunoglobulin secretion. In this study, the yellow grouper (Epinephelus awoara) BAFF (designated EaBAFF) gene was cloned using RT-PCR and RACE...
  3. Dissociation and re-association studies on the interaction domains of mannan-binding lectin (MBL)-associated serine proteases, MASP-1 and MA...

    Molecular Immunology 59(1):1 (2014) PMID 24424083

    Activation of the lectin pathway of complement begins with the activation of mannan-binding lectin (MBL)-associated serine proteases, MASP-1 and MASP-2, which are bound to the recognition molecules, MBL and ficolins. MASPs are Ca(2+)-dependent dimers. Dimerization and Ca(2+)-dependent association wi...
  4. Allorecognition of HLA-DP by CD4+ T cells is affected by polymorphism in its alpha chain.

    Molecular Immunology 59(1):19 (2014) PMID 24462895

    We hypothesized that not only polymorphisms in the peptide binding groove encoded by exon 2 of HLA-DPB1, but also in other regions of the molecule and the alpha chain, could play a role in CD4+ T cell allorecognition. To test this possibility, we comparatively investigated CD4+ T cell allorecognitio...
  5. pH dependence of antibody: hapten association.

    Molecular Immunology 36(6):397 (1999) PMID 10444003

    Monoclonal antibody NC6.8 is specific for the superpotent sweetener, N-(p-cyanophenyl)-N'-(diphenylmethyl)-guanidiniumacetic++ + acid. The three-dimensional structure of the complex shows the close proximity of complementary charged residues on the antibody and groups of the hapten. As a result, asso...
  6. The murine p75 TNF receptor promoter region: DNA sequence and characterization of a cis-acting silencer.

    Molecular Immunology 36(2):125 (1999) PMID 10378684

    The promoter region of the murine p75 TNF receptor (TNF-R) was isolated from a mouse genomic DNA cosmid library. The promoter region is devoid of TATA box and has the characteristics of a house keeping gene since it contains multiple SP1 binding sites. Its mRNA has different initiation sites in diff...
  7. Modulation of class I major histocompatibility complex antigen cell-surface stability by transmembrane domain length variation.

    Molecular Immunology 34(11):771 (1997) PMID 9444976

    I proteins is conferred to a large extent by their transmembrane domains (TMs) which exhibit allelic, inter-locus and inter-species variation in both amino acid composition and length. Here, the consequences of TM length variation on trafficking and cell-surface stability were examined using the hum...
  8. Isolation and N-terminal sequence determination of a novel gamma/delta T cell surface antigen.

    Molecular Immunology 34(8-9):583 (1997) PMID 9393961

    We use digestion with the proteolytic enzyme bromelain to selectively release the MAC319 antigen as a soluble fragment, for further characterisation. A cytofluorometric inhibition assay was developed to follow the purification of this fragment, as the conformation sensitivity of the MAC319 epitope p...
  9. Blood clearance in the rat of a recombinant mouse monoclonal antibody lacking the N-linked oligosaccharide side chains of the CH2 domains.

    Molecular Immunology 29(2):213 (1992) PMID 1542298

    The serum half-lives of a wild-type recombinant mouse monoclonal antibody of the IgG2b isotype and a mutant antibody differing from the wild-type antibody by a single amino acid substitution introduced into the CH2 domain, the replacement of Asn 297 by Ala to delete the conserved sit...
  10. A murine monoclonal anti-metallothionein autoantibody recognizes a chemically synthesized amino-terminal heptapeptide common to various anim...

    Molecular Immunology 25(10):1033 (1988) PMID 2464135

    These results demonstrate that the MT 189-14-7 autoantibody recognizes the epitope located within the amino-terminal heptapeptide common to various MTs....
