Two murine mAb have been generated with a reactivity toward a 30,000 m.w. DNA binding protein found on the cell surface of human leukocytes; mAb 12A has an IgG1/k isotype, and mAb 24T has an IgG2b/k isotype. Both react with the DNA binding domain or adjacent region of the putative DNA receptor and inhibit the binding of [3H]DNA to PBMC at concentrations as(More)
Influenza viral infections often lead to increased mortality in older people. However, the mechanisms by which aging impacts immunity to influenza lung infection remain unclear. We employed a murine model of influenza infection to identify these mechanisms. With aging, we found reduced numbers of alveolar macrophages, cells essential for lung homeostasis.(More)
An increasing number of older people receive organ transplants for various end-stage conditions. Although organ transplantation is an effective therapy for older patients (i.e., older than 65 years of age), such as in end-stage renal disease, this therapy has not been optimized for older patients because of our lack of understanding of the effect of aging(More)
We have characterized the activation of the interleukin 1 (IL-1)-responsive T-cell lymphoma LBRM33-1A5-47 to interleukin 2 (IL-2) production by phytohemagglutinin (PHA) and IL-1. The signal provided by soluble IL-1 could be replaced by fixed P388D1 cells and the signal provided by PHA by a monoclonal antibody directed against an allotypic determinant of the(More)
