We have recently shown that the accumulation of diverse viral and cellular membrane proteins in the ER activates the higher eukaryotic transcription factor NF-kappaB. This defined a novel ER-nuclear signal transduction pathway, which is distinct from the previously described unfolded protein response (UPR). The well characterized UPR pathway is activated by(More)
The adenovirus type 2 encoded protein E3/19K binds to human histocompatibility class I antigens (HLA). This association occurs both in adenovirus-infected cells and in cells that have been transfected with the gene encoding the E3/19K protein. The formation of the HLA-E3/19K complex prevents the HLA antigens from being correctly processed by inhibiting(More)
We have genetically engineered three alleles of the K locus of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) of the mouse. These novel hybrid H-2K genes were introduced into mouse 1T 22-6 cells (H-2q), and their products were shown to be expressed on the cell surface. The hybrid H-2 K antigens were examined for their ability to function as restricting elements(More)
We have previously expressed in transgenic mice a chimeric H-2Kd/Kk protein called C31, which contains the extracellular alpha 1 domain of Kd, whereas the rest of the molecule is of Kk origin. This molecule functions as a restriction element for alloreactive and influenza A-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) but is only weakly expressed at the cell(More)
Clonal deletion plays a major part in the maintenance of natural self-tolerance in both normal and transgenic mice. Self antigens that are expressed in the thymus result in the physical elimination of autoreactive thymocytes at a particular stage in their development. For example, the majority V beta 6- and V beta 8.1-bearing T cells that recognize the(More)
