Basic fibroblast growth factor is expressed in different isoforms which display tissue and species specificity and are differentially regulated during development and after experimental interventions. The differential regulation of the fibroblast growth factor-2 isoforms may indicate specific activities and functions of these molecules. The characterization(More)
Classically, HLA-DR expressed on antigen presenting cells (APC) initiates lymphocyte activation via presentation of peptides to TCR bearing CD4+ T-Cells. Here we demonstrate that HLA-DR alpha 2 domain (sHLA-DRalpha2) also induces negative signals by engaging TIRC7 on lymphocytes. This interaction inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis in CD4+ and CD8+(More)
