Many viruses, including retroviruses, are characterized by their specific cell tropism. Lymphadenopathy-associated virus (LAV) is a human lymphotropic retrovirus isolated from patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) or related syndromes, that displays selective tropism for a subset of T lymphocytes defined by the expression of a surface(More)
The effect of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) in protecting against atherosclerosis is usually attributed to its role in 'reverse cholesterol transport'. In this process, HDL particles mediate the efflux and the transport of cholesterol from peripheral cells to the liver for further metabolism and bile excretion. Thus, cell-surface receptors for HDL on(More)
A complete physical map of the 11p13 region containing the Wilms' tumor locus has been developed and used to localize a candidate Wilms' tumor gene. Our strategy to construct the map combined the use of pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and irradiation-reduced somatic cell hybrids. These hybrids, which contain limited segments of human chromosome 11(More)
We have previously demonstrated on human hepatocytes that apolipoprotein A-I binding to an ecto-F(1)-ATPase stimulates the production of extracellular ADP that activates a P2Y(13)-mediated high-density lipoprotein (HDL) endocytosis pathway. Therefore, we investigated the mechanisms controlling the extracellular ATP/ADP level in hepatic cell lines and(More)
Human Vgamma9Vdelta2 T lymphocytes recognize phosphorylated alkyl Ags. Isopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP) was previously proposed as the main Ag responsible for Vgamma9Vdelta2 T cell activation by cancer cells. However, triphosphoric acid 1-adenosin-5'-yl ester 3-(3-methylbut-3-enyl) ester (ApppI), a metabolite in which the isopentenyl moiety is linked to ATP,(More)

Human V 9V 2 T lymphocytes recognize phosphorylated alkyl antigens. Isopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP) was previously proposed γ δ as the main antigen responsible for V 9V 2 T cell activation by cancer cells. However ApppI, a metabolite in which the isopentenyl γ δ moiety is linked to ATP, was reported in cells activated with aminobisphosphonates. The(More)
