BACKGROUND X11-family proteins, including X11, X11-like (X11L) and X11-like 2 (X11L2), bind to the cytoplasmic domain of amyloid β-protein precursor (APP) and regulate APP metabolism. Both X11 and X11L are expressed specifically in brain, while X11L2 is expressed ubiquitously. X11L is predominantly expressed in excitatory neurons, in contrast to X11, which(More)
Rat thymic grafts reconstituted T cell functions of BALB/c nude (nu/nu) mice to a considerable degree, but multiple organ-localized autoimmune diseases such as oophoritis and thyroiditis generally developed. The effector cell population in this autoimmune model was studied by adoptive transfer of the lesions into syngeneic nude mice. The transfer activity(More)
