Virus-specific T-helper cells are considered critical for the control of chronic viral infections. Successful treatment of acute HIV-1 infection leads to augmentation of these responses, but whether this enhances immune control has not been determined. We administered one or two supervised treatment interruptions to eight subjects with treated acute(More)
Southern blotting was used to detect rearrangement of the bcl-2 gene in 104 cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma subclassified by the Working Formulation, 24 cases of B cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) and 14 cases of T cell malignancy. Earlier workers reported rearrangement of this gene (located on chromosome 18) in a major fraction of follicular(More)
The phenotype of three large cell (histiocytic) lymphomas of man has been defined with convential lymphocyte surface marker techniques, a panel of monoclonal antisera of hybridoma derivation (Ortho Pharmaceutical Corp.), and the fluorescence microscope. Two tumors exhibited surface IgG of lambda light-chain type, whereas the third was negative for surface(More)
In the course of analyzing human lymphoma tissue with conventional surface marker techniques and with monoclonal antibodies directed against T cell subsets, five tumors were encountered with dual B and T cell determinants. All bore on their surface membrane IgM of kappa light chain type, complement receptors, and the Ia-like antigen. In each of the five(More)
Dedicator of cytokinesis (DOCK) proteins are guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) controlling the activity of Rac1/Cdc42 during migration, phagocytosis, and myoblast fusion [1-4]. Engulfment and cell motility (ELMO) proteins bind a subset of DOCK members and are emerging as critical regulators of Rac signaling [5-10]. Although formation of a(More)
