beta-amyloid peptides that accumulate within the brain of individuals with Alzheimer's disease bind to C1q and activate the classical C pathway via a specific interaction with a site within the collagen-like domain of C1q (C1q-CLF). Synthetic analogues of beta-amyloid peptides, beta 1-42 and beta 1-40, bound to C1q and were strong activators of C as(More)
We show that six proteasome-associated proteins are induced by IFN-gamma, corresponding to three proteasome beta-type subunits and their precursors: the MHC-linked subunits (LMP-2 and LMP-7) and LMP-10. Concurrently, incorporation of LMP-9, LMP-17, and LMP-19 into proteasomes is reduced. LMP-10 appears to be the product of a previously cloned proteasome(More)
The arylhydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator (ARNT) is a member of the basic helix-loop-helix, PER-ARNT-SIM family of heterodimeric transcription factors, and serves as a dimerization partner for arylhydrocarbon receptor (AHR) and hypoxia-inducible factor-1alpha. To assess the function of ARNT in T cells, we disrupted the Arnt gene specifically in T(More)
