CD38 is an approximately 45-kDa type II transmembrane glycoprotein expressed by hematopoietic and nonhematopoietic cells. Its surface expression is under complex control and varies during lymphocyte development, activation, and differentiation, suggesting an important role in these processes. Murine CD38 has been mainly characterized on B lymphocytes, and(More)
Transgenic plants have been employed successfully as a low-cost system for the production of therapeutically valuable proteins, including antibodies, antigens and hormones. Here, we report the expression of a cytokine with immunomodulatory function, mouse interleukin-12 (IL-12), in transgenic tomato plants. Single-chain mouse IL-12 driven by the CaMV 35S(More)
A DENV-2 plasmid named pEII*EIII/NS1*, containing sequences encoding portions of the envelope protein that are potentially involved in the induction of neutralizing antibodies and a portion of the NS1 sequence that is involved in protection, is reported in this work. The synthesized subunit protein was recognized by human sera from infected patients and had(More)
In this work, we studied the expression and function of CD22 in murine B cells. CD22 has been previously characterized as an activation marker of mature B lymphocytes. However, we found that CD22 is expressed early during the ontogeny of B cells in the bone marrow and spleen, and was found on B cells isolated from all the different lymphoid compartments. We(More)
Domain III (DIII) of the dengue virus (DENV) envelope (E) protein induces strong neutralizing type-specific antibodies. In addition, a region near the fusion loop in domain II (DII) induces the production of cross-reactive antibodies with neutralizing potential. Thus, this study aimed to generate DENV-2 recombinant fusion proteins (i.e., rEII*EIII and(More)
H. pylori infection is the most important environmental risk to develop gastric cancer, mainly through its virulence factor CagA. In vitro models of CagA function have demonstrated a phosphoprotein activity targeting multiple cellular signaling pathways, while cagA transgenic mice develop carcinomas of the gastrointestinal tract, supporting oncogenic(More)
CD38 is a surface receptor able to induce activation, proliferation, and survival of human and mouse lymphocytes; this molecule is expressed on the surface of both mature and immature B cells. In this work, the function of CD38 in the maturation of murine B lymphocytes in the spleen was analyzed. The results showed that CD38 is highly expressed on(More)

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) inhibits dendritric cells (DC) function in order to delay T cell response. Furthermore, there is increasing evidence that genetic diversity of Mtb strains can affect their interaction with the immune system. Beijing genotype has attracted attention because of its high prevalence and multi-drug resistance. Although it is(More)
