The impact of high-performance work systems in the health-care industry: employee reactions, service quality, customer satisfaction, and customer loyalty
The purpose of this study is to empirically test the effects of high-performance work systems (HPWS) on employee attitude, service quality, customer satisfaction, and customer loyalty in health-careExpand

IFN‐γ‐STAT1 signal regulates the differentiation of inducible Treg: Potential role for ROS‐mediated apoptosis
Regulatory CD4+ T cells are important for the homeostasis of immune cells, and their absence correlates with autoimmune disorders. However, how the immune system regulates Treg homeostasis remainsExpand

Immunosuppressive Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells Can Be Converted into Immunogenic APCs with the Help of Activated NKT Cells: An Alternative Cell-Based Antitumor Vaccine1
Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs), which are known to be accumulated in the blood, spleen, and bone marrow of tumor-bearing mice and cancer patients, were tested as APCs for a cellular vaccineExpand

Cutting Edge: Programmed Death-1/Programmed Death Ligand 1 Interaction Regulates the Induction and Maintenance of Invariant NKT Cell Anergy1
Invariant NKT (iNKT) cells are a distinct subset of T lymphocytes that recognize glycolipid Ags. Upon TCR stimulation, iNKT cells promptly secrete a wide range of cytokines and therefore have beenExpand

Cutting edge: Programmed death-1/programmed death ligand 1 interaction regulates the induction and maintenance of invariant NKT cell anergy.
Invariant NKT (iNKT) cells are a distinct subset of T lymphocytes that recognize glycolipid Ags. Upon TCR stimulation, iNKT cells promptly secrete a wide range of cytokines and therefore have beenExpand

Glucocorticoid-induced tumor necrosis factor receptor–related protein co-stimulation facilitates tumor regression by inducing IL-9–producing helper T cells
T cell stimulation via glucocorticoid-induced tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR)-related protein (GITR) elicits antitumor activity in various tumor models; however, the underlying mechanism ofExpand

Lipid raft proteome reveals ATP synthase complex in the cell surface
Since detergent‐resistant lipid rafts are involved in pathogen invasion, cholesterol homeostasis, angiogenesis, neurodegenerative diseases and signal transduction, protein identification in the raftsExpand

Optimization of Codon Usage Enhances the Immunogenicity of a DNA Vaccine Encoding Mycobacterial Antigen Ag85B
ABSTRACT In spite of its many other benefits, DNA vaccine is limited in its application by its insufficient immunogenicity. One promising approach for enhancing its immunogenicity is to maximize itsExpand

4-1BB Engagement Costimulates NKT Cell Activation and Exacerbates NKT Cell Ligand-Induced Airway Hyperresponsiveness and Inflammation1
Multiple studies have demonstrated that 4-1BB (CD137), a member of the TNF receptor superfamily, is expressed on several immune cells including activated T cells. However, the expression and the roleExpand

The restoration of myeloid‐derived suppressor cells as functional antigen‐presenting cells by NKT cell help and all‐trans‐retinoic acid treatment
Myeloid‐derived suppressor cells (MDSCs), which accumulate during tumor progression, have been shown to function as important suppressor cells. In a previous study, we showed that immunosuppressiveExpand
