The cytokines controlling the development of human interleukin (IL) 17--producing T helper cells in vitro have been difficult to identify. We addressed the question of the development of human IL-17--producing T helper cells in vivo by quantifying the production and secretion of IL-17 by fresh T cells ex vivo, and by T cell blasts expanded in vitro from(More)
Roifman Syndrome is a rare congenital disorder characterized by growth retardation, cognitive delay, spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia and antibody deficiency. Here we utilize whole-genome sequencing of Roifman Syndrome patients to reveal compound heterozygous rare variants that disrupt highly conserved positions of the RNU4ATAC small nuclear RNA gene, a minor(More)
With a cDNA probe for the DQ beta gene, two variants of the DR4-linked DQw3 (3.1 and 3.2) allele were analysed in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), healthy individuals, and homozygous cell lines. The DQw3.1 allele, identified by 3.4 kb (HindIII), 2.3 kb (SstI), and 3.7 kb and 6.9 kb (BamHI) restriction fragment lengths, was expressed in 100% (of 18)(More)
