Two heterodimeric receptors consisting of either IL-20R1 or IL-22R1 in complex with a common β receptor subunit IL-20R2 are shared by three of the IL-20 family of cytokines: IL-19, IL-20, and IL-24. These proinflammatory cytokines have been implicated in the pathogenesis of some autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriasis, and atopic(More)
Adenylate kinase (AK) from Escherichia coli was used as both solubility and affinity tag for recombinant protein production. When fused to the N-terminus of a target protein, an AK fusion protein could be expressed in soluble form and purified to near homogeneity in a single step from Blue-Sepherose via affinity elution with micromolar concentration of P1,(More)
Text documents are often high dimensional and sparse, it is a great challenge to discover the clusters among the unlabelled text data, because there are no obvious clusters by common distance measure. In this paper we present a latent subspace clustering method to find text clusters. In our algorithm, we use latent factors extracted by probability latent(More)
Aberrant expression of TNF family of cytokines has been linked to human diseases, and biologics targeting their signaling have become the best selling drugs globally. However, functional detection with labeled ligands for accurate detection of TNFR family of receptor-expressing target tissues or cell types remains to be developed. Here we show that TNF(More)
Two heterodimeric receptors consisting of interleukin (IL)-20R2 are shared by three of the IL-20 family of cytokines, IL-19, IL-20 and IL-24. Along with IL-22, these cytokines are downstream effectors of IL-23 and have been implicated in keratinocyte functions and the pathogenesis of psoriasis. Surprisingly, whereas knocking out either the IL-23 or IL-22(More)
TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL/Apo2L) has long been considered a tantalizing target for cancer therapy because it mediates activation of the extrinsic apoptosis pathway in a tumor-specific manner by binding to and trimerizing its functional receptors DR4 or DR5. Despite initial promise, both recombinant human TRAIL (native TRAIL) and dimeric(More)
