Generation of tissue-specific and promiscuous HLA ligand databases using DNA microarrays and virtual HLA class II matrices
Most pockets in the human leukocyte antigen–group DR (HLA-DR) groove are shaped by clusters of polymorphic residues and, thus, have distinct chemical and size characteristics in different HLA-DRExpand

Precise prediction of major histocompatibility complex class II-peptide interaction based on peptide side chain scanning
We describe here a new method for predicting class II major histocompatibility complex-binding peptides, based on the preferences observed in a systematic series of peptide binding experiments whereExpand

Phosphoprotein and phosphopeptide interactions with the FHA domain from Arabidopsis kinase-associated protein phosphatase.
FHA domains are phosphoThr recognition modules found in diverse signaling proteins, including kinase-associated protein phosphatase (KAPP) from Arabidopsis thaliana. The kinase-interacting FHA domainExpand

Peptide binding specificity of HLA-DR4 molecules: correlation with rheumatoid arthritis association
We have investigated whether sequence 67 to 74 shared by beta chains of rheumatoid arthritis (RA)-associated HLA-DR molecules imparts a specific pattern of peptide binding. The peptide bindingExpand

A Peptide-binding Motif for I-Ag7, the Class II Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) Molecule of NOD and Biozzi AB/H Mice
The class II major histocompatibility complex molecule I-Ag7 is strongly linked to the development of spontaneous insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) in non obese diabetic mice and to theExpand

The motif for peptide binding to the insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus-associated class II MHC molecule I-Ag7 validated by phage display library.
The MHC class II molecule I-Ag7 is essential for the development of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) in the non-obese diabetic (NOD) mouse but the requirements for peptide binding to I-Ag7Expand

Relationship between peptide selectivities of human transporters associated with antigen processing and HLA class I molecules.
Efficiency of presentation of a peptide epitope by a MHC class I molecule depends on two parameters: its binding to the MHC molecule and its generation by intracellular Ag processing. In contrast toExpand

111In-labeled lactam bridge-cyclized alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone peptide analogues for melanoma imaging.
The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of the lactam bridge cyclization on melanoma targeting and biodistribution properties of the radiolabeled conjugates. Two novel lactamExpand

Synthesis of radiometal-labeled and fluorescent cell-permeating peptide-PNA conjugates for targeting the bcl-2 proto-oncogene.
The B-cell lymphoma/leukemia-2 (bcl-2) proto-oncogene has been associated with the transformation of benign lesions to malignancy, disease progression, poor prognosis, reduced survival, andExpand

Identification of destabilizing residues in HLA class II‐selected bacteriophage display libraries edited by HLA‐DM
HLA‐DM (DM) functions as a peptide editor by catalyzing the release of class II‐associated invariant chain peptides (CLIP) and other unstable peptides, thus supporting the formation of stable classExpand
