Immunization studies with HSV-1 and HSV-2 envelope proteins expressed in Escherichia coli were performed. After active immunization of mice with a gD-1 antigen (Leu53-Ala312) expressed as a fusion protein, the animals were protected from a lethal challenge with HSV-1 and HSV-2. In addition, antisera from rabbits immunized with the same gD-1 antigen also(More)
Availability of the semiessential amino acid arginine is fundamental for the efficient function of human T lymphocytes. Tumor-associated arginine deprivation, mainly induced by myeloid-derived suppressor cells, is a central mechanism of tumor immune escape from T-cell-mediated antitumor immune responses. We thus assumed that transmembranous transport of(More)
