Granulysin and NK-lysin are antimicrobial proteins found in the granules of human and swine cytotoxic lymphocytes. A murine counterpart to granulysin has not been identified to date, indicating the importance of additional models to fully characterize the role of granulysin-like molecules in the immune response to infectious disease. Two partial nucleotide(More)
To determine whether the amino acid pattern of human milk is unique, we compared the amino acid pattern of human milk with the amino acid patterns of the milks of great apes (chimpanzee and gorilla), lower primates (baboon and rhesus monkey) and nonprimates (cow, goat, sheep, llama, pig, horse, elephant, cat and rat). Amino acid pattern was defined as the(More)
Although the T cell dependence of autoimmune responses in connective tissue diseases has been well established, limited information exists regarding the T cell targeting of self Ags in humans. To characterize the T cell response to a connective tissue disease-associated autoantigen, this study generated T cell clones from patients using a set of peptides(More)

OBJECTIVES Research suggests that the use of lies and deception are prevalent in dementia care settings. This issue has been explored from the view point of carers and professionals, and the acceptability and ethicality of deception in dementia care remains an area of heated debate. This article explored the issue of lies and deception in dementia care from(More)
Strains of Escherichia coli K-12 carrying mutations at either of two distinct loci (nmpA and nmpB) produce a new outer membrane pore protein which is not present in wild type cells. Mutations at either of these loci result in sensitivity to phage TC45, which can use this new protein as its receptor, and the new protein (the NmpAB protein) appears to be(More)
Genomic DNA blot analyses using probes derived from the BALB/c 3′ flanking region of the L d gene (L d 3′ fl-C) and from near the BALB/c D3 d gene (50.2A) indicate that the B10.GAA37 mouse strain has a multi-locus D (D w16) region distinct from the five-gene organization observed in the D d and D q regions. To isolate the D w16 region class I genes, a(More)
Requirements for human Th17 differentiation in the context of activated dendritic cells (DCs) are still emerging. Here, we demonstrate that several Toll-like receptor (TLR) ligands, particularly LPS and a synthetic lipoprotein, activate human DCs to direct increased human Th17 differentiation. Based on neutralization studies, IL1, IL6, and TGFbeta(More)
Photosynthesis and photosynthate partitioning in leaves of Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench exhibited a cyclic dependence on the duration (10–62 h) of dark periods inserted prior to bright light test periods (550 μmol·s-1·m-2, photosynthetic photon flux). Maximum rates of net photosynthesis and of accumulation of starch and soluble sugars were, in the order(More)
