Noncognate or self peptide-MHC (pMHC) ligands productively interact with T-cell receptor (TCR) and are always in a large access over the cognate pMHC on the surface of antigen presenting cells. We assembled soluble cognate and noncognate pMHC class I (pMHC-I) ligands at designated ratios on various scaffolds into oligomers that mimic pMHC clustering and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether common allelic variation at the vitamin D receptor locus is related to bone mineral density and postmenopausal bone loss. DESIGN Cross sectional and longitudinal population study. SETTING Outpatient clinic in research centre. SUBJECTS 599 healthy women aged 27 to 72 and 125 women with low bone mass aged 55-77 had bone(More)
The usage of T-cell-receptor (TCR) alpha beta variable (V) regions among tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) in primary human malignant melanomas was characterized using a method based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). A panel of 57 different variable-region primers specific for the TCR V alpha I-29 and V beta I-28 was designed, and a(More)
The AID/APOBEC family (activation induced deaminase/apolipoprotein B mRNA editing cytokine deaminase) in B cells play important roles in adaptive and innate immunity. Whereas APOBEC3G has been studied in CD4+ T cells and myeloid cells its functional potential in B cells has received little attention. AID combines two critical functions of antibodies, class(More)
Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules expressed on the surface of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are potential targets for neutralizing antibodies. Since MHC molecules are polymorphic, nonself MHC can also be immunogenic. We have used combinations of novel recombinant HLA class I and II and HIV/simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) antigens,(More)
The T cell receptor (TCR) alpha beta variable (V) gene family usage of tumour-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) in four different primary human malignant melanomas and their corresponding metastatic lesions was characterized using a recently developed method based on the reverse-transcription-coupled polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). All patients were typed(More)
Genetic, epidemiological and experimental evidence suggest that the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is critical in controlling human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. The objectives of this study were to determine whether novel recombinant Mamu MHC constructs would elicit protection against rectal challenge with heterologous simian-human(More)
HY-specific T cells are presumed to play a role in acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) after female-to-male stem cell transplantation (SCT). However, infiltrates of these T cells in aGVHD-affected tissues have not yet been reported. We evaluated the application of HLA-A2/HY dextramers for the in situ detection of HY-specific T cells in cryopreserved(More)
A human HLA-DQ beta-chain cDNA was used as a probe to identify and isolate a rat major histocompatibility antigen beta-chain gene from a genomic library constructed in the vector lambda Charon 28 using Wistar rat DNA (RT1u). The isolated exon of the rat gene (RT1.B beta 2) encoding a beta-chain second domain was found to share 93% nucleotide homology with a(More)
