HIN-200 Proteins Regulate Caspase Activation in Response to Foreign Cytoplasmic DNA
The mammalian innate immune system is activated by foreign nucleic acids. Detection of double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) in the cytoplasm triggers characteristic antiviral responses and macrophage cellExpand

Expression of human DEC-205 (CD205) multilectin receptor on leukocytes.
DEC-205 (CD205) belongs to the macrophage mannose receptor family of C-type lectin endocytic receptors and behaves as an antigen uptake/processing receptor for dendritic cells (DC). To investigateExpand

Impact of Procedural Steps and Cryopreservation Agents in the Cryopreservation of Chlorophyte Microalgae
The maintenance of traditional microalgae collections based on liquid and solid media is labour intensive, costly and subject to contamination and genetic drift. Cryopreservation is therefore theExpand

B cells do not take up bacterial DNA: an essential role for antigen in exposure of DNA to toll‐like receptor‐9
Murine dendritic cells (DC) and macrophages respond to bacterial CpG DNA through toll‐like receptor 9 (TLR9). Although it is frequently assumed that bacterial DNA is a direct stimulus for B cells,Expand

Interaction between PU.1 and Another Ets Family Transcription Factor Promotes Macrophage-specific Basal Transcription Initiation*
Numerous macrophage-restricted promoters lack TATA boxes or other conventional initiation motifs but contain high affinity binding sites (PU boxes) for the macrophage-restricted Ets familyExpand
