We developed a method for production of antigen-specific, H-2-restricted T cell hybrids. The tumor cell partner in the fusions was itself a T cell hybrid, FS6-14.13.AG2 (or its derivatives), which could be induced to produce the growth factor, interleukin-2 (IL-2), in response to a challenge with concanavalin A, but had no known antigen specificity. The(More)
The fusion of an AKR T cell tumor line to normal B6D2F1, T cells resulted in the production of a cloned T cell hybridoma (FS6-14.13) inducible with the mitogen concanavalin A (Con A). The supernate from Con A-stimulated hybridoma cells was active both in the stimulation of an anti-sheep red blood cell response by partially T cell-depleted B cells and in the(More)
WAMPA (for Wide Area MicroProbe Analyser) represents a new scientific instrument concept for planetary exploration. WAMPA builds on recently published research such as sensor webs and distributed microsensors [1][2] but adds new sensor and localisation concepts. WAMPA is driven by the recurrent theme in spacecraft and sensor design to achieve smaller,(More)
We teamed engineering and art students together to develop assistive technology projects in our sculpture and computer science classes. Together, they and their instructors honed their teamwork skills as teachers <i>and</i> learners, as we all collaboratively designed and fabricated the projects. As a group, we examined the notions of ability, the needs of(More)
While the presence of a robust perivascular neural network accompanying cerebral and dural blood vessels that contain various neuropeptides is well documented, the functional significance of this innervation is unclear. Following experimentally induced subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) in animal models, immunocytochemical studies have revealed that changes(More)
