The problem of Alzheimer's disease (AD) exemplifies the challenges of dealing with a broad range of aging-related chronic disorders that require long-term, labor-intensive, and expensive care. As the baby boom generation ages and brain diseases become more prevalent, the need to confront the pending health care crisis is more urgent than ever before.(More)
A combination of metabolic labeling and chemical or enzymatic modification was employed to isolate and biochemically characterize a set of glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol (gly-PI) molecules synthesized by T lymphocytes. Gly-PI displayed unique patterns of synthesis following mitogen activation relative to the phosphoinositides and major structural lipids. The(More)
Neonatal exposure to Gross murine leukemia virus results in a profound inhibition of the virus-specific T and B cell responses of adult animals. Animals exposed to virus as neonates exhibit a marked depression in virus-specific T cell function as measured by the virtual absence of in vivo delayed type hypersensitivity responses and in vitro proliferative(More)
A syngeneic monoclonal antiidiotypic antibody was generated in BALB/c mice after repeated immunization with a BALB/c monoclonal anti-reovirus hemagglutinin (HA) antibody. The resultant syngeneic monoclonal antiidiotypic antibody, in the absence of adjuvant, was found to be capable of priming both BALB/c (H-2d, Igh-1a) and C3H/Hej (H-2k, Igh-1j) mice for(More)
The thymus is considered to play an important role in the pathogenesis of Myasthenia gravis, an autoimmune disease characterized by antibody-mediated skeletal muscle weakness. However, its role is yet to be defined. The studies described herein summarize our efforts to determine how intrathymic expression of the neuromuscular type of acetylcholine (ACh)(More)
Mammalian reovirus type 3 binds to a 67-kD surface glycoprotein on the membrane of neuronal cells. This interaction initiates the infective reovirus cycle. The physiological function of this virus receptor is not known, however, initial studies illustrate a striking structural and antigenic homology to the beta adrenergic receptor family. The earliest known(More)
A syngeneic monoclonal antiidiotype directed against the idiotype of an antireovirus type 3 hemagglutinin demonstrates several of the biological actions of the original viral hemagglutinin and binds to rat and murine cortical neurons grown in dissociated cell culture. Receptor-bearing neurons appear within 24 hours of plating in cultures from mouse or rat(More)
Exposure of newborn mice to Gross murine leukemia virus (GMuLV) results in persistent viral infection of the central nervous system (CNS) white matter. Animals exposed to virus as neonates showed a marked depression in GMuLV-specific B lymphocyte function as evidenced by significant decreases in adult and neonatal anti-GMuLV antibody levels.(More)
We report here a new diagnostic approach to the direct detection of HIV in blood or other body fluids that is rapid, sensitive and potentially applicable in a point-of-care setting. The approach follows on the development of a novel BioNanoSensor (BNS) device that utilizes piezoelectric technology to detect the presence of the HIV surface glycoprotein gp120(More)
