Enhanced Dissociation of HLA-DR-Bound Peptides in the Presence of HLA-DM
Human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DM is a critical participant in antigen presentation that catalyzes the release of class II-associated invariant chain-derived peptides (CLIP) from newly synthesizedExpand

Analysis of HLA-E Peptide-Binding Specificity and Contact Residues in Bound Peptide Required for Recognition by CD94/NKG2 1
The MHC class Ib molecule HLA-E is the primary ligand for CD94/NKG2A-inhibitory receptors expressed on NK cells, and there is also evidence for TCR-mediated recognition of this molecule. HLA-EExpand

Regulated Expression of Human Histocompatibility Leukocyte Antigen (HLA)-DO During Antigen-dependent and Antigen-independent Phases of B Cell Development
Human histocompatibility leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DO, a lysosomal resident major histocompatibility complex class II molecule expressed in B cells, has previously been shown to be a negative regulatorExpand

DM enhances peptide binding to class II MHC by release of invariant chain-derived peptide.
Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II molecules bind antigenic peptides rapidly after biosynthesis in antigen-presenting cells (APCs). By contrast, the rate of peptide binding to purifiedExpand

Guanylate-binding protein-1 is expressed at tight junctions of intestinal epithelial cells in response to interferon-γ and regulates barrier function through effects on apoptosis
Guanylate-binding protein-1 (GBP-1) is an interferon inducible large GTPase involved in endothelial cell proliferation and invasion. In this report, expression and function of GBP-1 were investigatedExpand

Positive selection of a Qa-1-restricted T cell receptor with specificity for insulin.
The phenotype and development of T cells from transgenic mice expressing a T cell receptor with specificity for insulin presented by the MHC class Ib molecule Qa-1(b) was investigated. Peripheral TExpand

Effects of phenol on barrier function of a human intestinal epithelial cell line correlate with altered tight junction protein localization.
Phenol contamination of soil and water has raised concerns among people living near phenol-producing factories and hazardous waste sites containing the chemical. Phenol, particularly in highExpand

Inefficient peptide binding by cell-surface class II MHC molecules.
The efficiency of peptide loading onto surface class II MHC molecules in intact APC was investigated, using a previously defined europium immunoassay as well as a simplified Western blot procedure.Expand

Novel structural determinants on SIRP alpha that mediate binding to CD47.
Signal regulatory proteins (SIRP-alpha, -beta, and -gamma) are important regulators of several innate immune functions that include leukocyte migration. Membrane distal (D1) domains of SIRPalpha andExpand

Contribution de la photogrammetrie numerique a l'etude spatio-temporelle de versants instables; l'exemple du glissement de terrain de Super-Sauze (Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, France)
Recent developments in image processing and digital photogrammetry offer to the geomorphologists increasingly accessible and effective tools for the spatio-temporal knowledge of landslides. TheseExpand
