Evidence is presented showing that a protein tyrosine phosphatase different from CD45 is present on the membrane of human hematopoietic cells. The molecule recognized by the monoclonal antibody 143-41, which has been classified as CD148 in the VI International Workshop on Leukocyte Differentiation Antigens, was immunopurified and sequenced. The sequence(More)
In this study we have re-examined the molecular mechanisms involved in activation of T cells by dendritic cells (DC). Human peripheral blood DC (PBDC) were derived by 2 h adhesion followed by 7 day culture in a combination of granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor and IL-4, and depletion of residual T and B cells. These PBDC were used to induce(More)
CD148 is a new cluster of differentiation defined in the VI International Workshop on Leucocyte Differentiation Antigens. It has been identified as the hematopoietic form of a formerly described membrane protein tyrosine phosphatase called HPTP eta/ DEP-1. Previous data have demonstrated that this molecule is able to give rise to [Ca2+]i increase. In the(More)
The role of protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTP) is crucial in regulating the phosphorylation status of cells. CD148 is a recently described membrane-type PTP. In this study, we have demonstrated that this molecule is expressed on human eosinophils and eosinophilic cell line EoL-3. Interestingly, our data also showed that this molecule acts as a transduction(More)
