PAX5 is an essential transcription factor for the commitment of lymphoid progenitors to the B-lymphocyte lineage. PAX5 suppression results in retrodifferentiation of B lymphocytes to an uncommitted progenitor cell stage, whereas PAX5 suppression in mature B lymphocytes leads to further development into plasma cells. Here, we have analyzed the fate of plasma(More)
The failure to efficiently introduce genes into normal cells such as human B lymphocytes limits the characterization of their function on cellular growth, differentiation and survival. Recent studies have shown that a new adenoviral vector Ad5/F35 can efficiently transduce human haematopoietic CD34+ progenitor cells. In this study, we compared the gene(More)
B-cell hybridomas are widely used to produce monoclonal antibodies via large-scale cell culture. Unfortunately, these cells are highly sensitive to apoptotic death under conditions of nutrient deprivation observed at the plateau phase of batch cultures. Previous work has indicated that constitutive high-level expression of antiapoptotic genes in hybridoma(More)
Several human histo-blood groups are glycosphingolipids, including P/P1/P(k). Glycosphingolipids are implicated in HIV-host-cell-fusion and some bind to HIV-gp120 in vitro. Based on our previous studies on Fabry disease, where P(k) accumulates and reduces infection, and a soluble P(k) analog that inhibits infection, we investigated cell surface-expressed(More)
The cellular proto-oncogene c-myc is an important transcription factor that plays a role in several cellular activities such as proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. It follows that regulation of c-myc expression is crucial for maintaining cell integrity. Amplification or translocation can convert this proto-oncogene into an activated oncogene,(More)

Adenoviral gene transfer into human B lymphocytes and haematopoietic progenitors would allow the characterization of their function on cellular growth, differentiation and survival. Efficient gene expression is however strongly dependent on the promoter used. In this study, we investigated the relative strength of various promoters by following and(More)
In addition to its classical CD40 receptor, CD154 also binds to αIIbβ3, α5β1, and αMβ2 integrins. Binding of CD154 to these receptors seems to play a key role in the pathogenic processes of chronic inflammation. This investigation was aimed at analyzing the functional interaction of CD154 with CD40, αIIbβ3, and α5β1 receptors. We found that the binding(More)
Burkitt's lymphoma is an aggressive B-cell neoplasm resulting from deregulated c-myc expression. We have previously shown that proliferation of Burkitt's lymphoma cell lines such as Ramos is markedly reduced by iron treatment. It has been shown that iron induces expression of c-myc which, owing to its transcriptional regulatory functions, regulates genes(More)
— A number of residual generation methods have been developed for robust model-based fault detection and isolation (FDI). There have also been a number of offline (i.e., design-time) methods that focus on optimizing FDI performance (e.g., trading off detection performance versus cost). However, design-time algorithms are not tuned to optimize performance(More)
