We have previously confirmed that subjects with psoriasis have an alteration of cell-mediated immune responses. We now report a possible in vitro corollary; the amount of lymphokine (lymphocyte-derived chemotactic factor) released by both antigen-stimulated and control lymphocytes is decreased in psoriatic subjects; 61% of similar values for normal(More)
Hemopoietic cells have been reported to synthesize insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) messenger RNA (mRNA), but the relative contribution of specific cell lineages that express these transcripts remains unknown. Reverse transcription and amplification of complementary DNA (cDNA) by the polymerase chain reaction were used to characterize full-length IGF-I(More)
Because of both experimental and computational challenges, protonated tryptophan has remained the last aromatic amino acid for which the intrinsic structures of low-energy conformers have not been unambiguously solved. The IR-IR-UV hole-burning spectroscopy technique has been applied to overcome the limitations of the commonly used IR-UV double resonance(More)
A series of 1-benzoyl- and 1-phenylisoquinolineacetic acid derivatives was prepared and tested for antiinflammatory activity. The most potent compound synthesized, 1-(4-chlorophenyl)-3-isoquinolineacetamide, was as active as phenylbutazone in the Evans blue carrageenan-induced pleural effusion assay but inactive in the adjuvant-induced arthritis model of(More)
