The monoclonal anti-idiotypic antibody (mAb2) 87.92.6 directed against the 9B.G5 antibody specific for the virus neutralizing epitope on the mammalian reovirus type 3 hemagglutinin was previously demonstrated to express an internal image of the receptor binding epitope of the reovirus type 3. Furthermore, this mAb2 has autoimmune reactivity to the cell(More)
OBJECTIVE Under some circumstances the HIV virus may infect cells that do not express receptors essential to HIV-entry. We hypothesized that platelet- and megakaryocyte-derived microparticles (MP) could play a role in such infections. MP are circular membrane fragments shed from the surface of eukaryotic cells. After adhesion to target cells, MP may(More)
In order to assess the importance of interleukin 2 receptor (IL-2R)-positive activated lymphocytes and macrophages in the pathogenesis of autoimmunity, we tested the prophylactic therapeutic efficacy of an anti-IL-2R (M7/20) monoclonal antibody, which recognizes the 55-kDa subunit of the heterodimeric IL-2R in two distinct models: the nonobese diabetic(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the impact of HIV-1 infection on thymocyte development, and the role of thymic infection on the pathogenesis of neonatal HIV-1 infection. DESIGN AND METHODS The consequences of thymic infection by HIV-1 were examined by comparative histologic and molecular analyses of an asymptomatic, HIV-1-seropositive 3-day-old subject, versus(More)
The aim of this study was to learn more about the role of the HIV-related chemokine-chemokine receptor axes in human hematopoiesis. To address this issue we phenotyped 35 selected hematopoietic cell lines for the expression of CD4, CXCR4 and CCR5. We next evaluated the functionality of these chemokine receptors by calcium flux and chemotaxis assays, and by(More)
A cell-surface receptor for the mammalian reovirus type 3 hemagglutinin was isolated by using antiidiotypic anti-receptor antibodies. The receptor is a glycoprotein with a molecular mass of 67,000 daltons and a pI of 5.9. Evidence that the isolated structure represents the reovirus receptor was obtained by electrophoretic immunoblot studies, which(More)
A syngeneic monoclonal anti-idiotope that behaves as an internal image of the mammalian reovirus type 3 cellular attachment protein (viral hemagglutinin) was used in the syngeneic host for the induction of a prophylactic anti-viral antibody response. These studies were performed without the aid of co-stimulation by viral antigens. The high stringency of(More)
