We have previously shown that acute psychological stress alerts the adaptive immune response causing an increase in antigen-experienced effector T cells in the peripheral blood. T regulatory cells (Tregs) play a central role in maintaining self-tolerance and controlling autoimmune responses. Here, we analyzed for the first time the behaviour of Tregs in the(More)
Botulinum toxin is used to induce transient graded paresis by chemodenervation in the treatment of focal hyperkinetic movement disorders. While the molecular events occurring in motoneurons after mechanical nerve lesioning leading to muscle paresis are well known, they have been investigated to a lesser extent after chemodenervation. We therefore examined(More)
Leukemic stem cells (LSCs) are considered a major cause of relapse in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Defining pathways that control LSC self-renewal is crucial for a better understanding of underlying mechanisms and for the development of targeted therapies. However, currently available culture conditions do not prevent spontaneous differentiation of LSCs,(More)
Multipotent long-term repopulating hematopoietic stem cells (LT-HSCs) can self-renew or differentiate into the less primitive short-term repopulating stem cells (ST-HSCs), which themselves produce progenitors that ensure the daily supply of all essential blood components. The Polycomb group (PcG) protein BMI1 is essential for the activity of both HSCs and(More)
