CD160 is an Ig-like activating NK cell receptor expressed on the majority of circulating NK cells. This population corresponds to the nonproliferating, highly cytolytic, CD56dimCD16+ subset. CD160 engagement by HLA-C molecules mediates cytotoxic function. In this study, we report that upon specific activation by the physiological ligand HLA-C, or Ab(More)
CD100 represents the first semaphorin described in the immune system. It is expressed as a 300-kDa homodimer at the surface of most hematopoietic cells, but is also found in a soluble form following a proteolytic cleavage upon cell activation. We herein established that soluble CD100 (sCD100) impaired the migration of human monocytes and immature dendritic(More)
A recombinant GST-Fyn-SH2 domain was used to purify proteins from lysates of pervanadate treated EL4 cells. N-terminal sequencing and molecular cloning of one of the purified polypeptides resulted in the identification of a novel adaptor protein that shares strong structural homology to the recently cloned Fyn-associated adaptor protein SKAP55. This protein(More)
Circulating human natural killer (NK) lymphocytes have been functionally defined by their ability to exert cytotoxic activity against MHC class I-negative target cell lines, including K562. Therefore, it was proposed that NK cells recognized the "missing self." We show here that the Ig-like CD160 receptor expressed by circulating CD56(dim+) NK cells or(More)
Differentiation between Sézary syndrome and erythrodermic inflammatory dermatoses can be challenging, and a number of studies have attempted to identify characteristic immunophenotypic changes and molecular biomarkers in Sézary cells that could be useful as additional diagnostic criteria. In this European multicenter study, the sensitivity and specificity(More)
It has previously been reported that in resting T-lymphocytes the protein tyrosine kinase p59 constitutively co-precipitates with four phosphoproteins of 43, 55, 85, and 120 kDa, respectively. We have recently cloned the 55-kDa protein that was termed Src kinase-associated phosphoprotein of 55 kDa (SKAP55). Here we demonstrate that the recently(More)
CD160 has been initially identified as a GPI-anchored MHC-class I activating receptor mainly expressed on peripheral blood NK cells. Herein, we report the identification of three additional CD160-related mRNAs generated through alternative splicings of the CD160 gene, among which one encoded a putative CD160 transmembrane isoform (CD160-TM). We first(More)
In human T-lymphocytes the Src family protein tyrosine kinase p59(fyn) associates with three phosphoproteins of 43, 55, and 85 kDa (pp43, pp55, and pp85). Employing a GST-Fyn-Src homology 2 (SH2) domain fusion protein pp55 was purified from lysates of Jurkat T-cells. Molecular cloning of the pp55 cDNA reveals that the pp55 gene codes for a so far(More)
Inhibitory immunoreceptors downregulate signaling by recruiting Src homology 2 (SH2) domain-containing tyrosine and/or lipid phosphatases to activating receptor complexes [1]. There are indications that some inhibitory receptors might also perform other functions [2] [3]. In adherent macrophages, two inhibitory receptors, SHPS-1 and PIR-B, are the major(More)
The molecular mechanisms regulating recruitment of intracellular signaling proteins like growth factor receptor-bound protein 2 (Grb2), phospholipase Cgamma1, or phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3-kinase) to the plasma membrane after stimulation of the T cell receptor (TCR)- CD3-zeta complex are not very well understood. We describe here purification,(More)
