T cell receptor (TCR) phosphorylation requires the kinase Lck and phosphatase CD45. CD45 activates Lck by dephosphorylating an inhibitory tyrosine of Lck to relieve autoinhibition. However, CD45 also dephosphorylates the TCR, and the spatial exclusion of CD45 from TCR clustering in the plasma membrane appears to attenuate this negative effect of CD45. To(More)
Several pathological studies have revealed a prominent involvement of the cerebral cortex in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). In order to better understand the events that lead to the progressive neuronal dysfunction in MS, herein we explore the contribution of the glutamatergic release in cerebral cortex synaptosomes isolated from rats with(More)
