Two families of GTPases dominate the complex cellular response to IFN-gamma.
IFN-gamma induces a number of cellular programs functional in innate and adaptive resistance to infectious pathogens. It has recently become clear that the complete cellular response to IFN-gamma isExpand

Porcine peripheral blood dendritic cells and natural interferon‐producing cells
Peripheral blood contains two major particular infrequent dendritic cells (DC) subsets linking the innate and specific immune system, the myeloid DC and plasmacytoid DC equivalent to the naturalExpand

Intravenous immunoglobulin contains a broad repertoire of anticarbohydrate antibodies that is not restricted to the IgG2 subclass.
BACKGROUND Specificities for carbohydrate IgG antibodies, thought to be predominantly of the IgG2 subclass, have never been broadly examined in healthy human subjects. OBJECTIVE To examineExpand

PUMA‐G, an IFN‐γ‐inducible gene in macrophages is a novel member of the seven transmembrane spanning receptor superfamily
IFN‐γ is a key immunoregulatory cytokine that plays a predominant role in innate immunity. By employing PCR‐Select to search for genes differentially expressed in IFN‐γ/TNF‐α stimulated macrophages,Expand

Oral Passive Immunization With Plasma-Derived Polyreactive Secretory-Like IgA/M Partially Protects Mice Against Experimental Salmonellosis
Secretory immunoglobulins have a critical role in defense of the gastrointestinal tract and are known to act by preventing bacterial acquisition. A stringent murine model of bacterial infection withExpand

A Decentralized Anonymity-Preserving Reputation System with Constant-time Score Retrieval
TLDR
We present a reputation system that is decentralized yet secure and efficient, and could therefore be applied in a practical context. Expand
