Graft-vs-host disease (GVHD) is a major complication of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. Experimentally, lethal GVHD can be induced in MHC-matched strain combinations differing in expression of multiple minor histocompatibility Ags (miHA). Recently, the GVHD potential of C57BL/6By (B6) T cells in irradiated BALB.B (both H2b) and related CXB(More)
A structure-based designed peptide has been engineered to exhibit the same molecular surface as a portion of the CDR3-like region in domain 1 of the murine CD4 molecule. Earlier in vitro experiments indicated that this analog, known as rD-mPGPtide, inhibited T-cell proliferation in mixed lymphocyte reactions and blocked activation of both normal CD4+ T(More)
Dopamine (DA) and orexin neurons play important roles in reward and food intake. There are anatomical and functional connections between these two cell groups: orexin peptides stimulate DA neurons in the ventral tegmental area and DA inhibits orexin neurons in the hypothalamus. However, the cellular mechanisms underlying the action of DA on orexin neurons(More)
