Intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM) 1/CD54 plays an important role in T cell dependent B cell activation and for function of B lymphocytes as antigen-presenting cells. ICAM-1 expression is upregulated as a consequence of B lymphocyte antigen receptor (BCR) signaling, thereby serving to render antigen-stimulated B cells more receptive to T cell-mediated(More)
In an effort to elucidate the role of intrathymic Ia-bearing antigen-presenting cells (APC) on the development of the class II-restricted T cell repertoire, we examined the effect of neonatal anti-I-A treatment on both intrathymic and splenic APC function; on the generation of Lyt-2-,L3T4+, Lyt-2+,L3T4-, and Lyt-2+,L3T4+ T cells; and on the development of(More)
In this study we investigated the effect of monoclonal anti-I-A Ab treatment of neonatal mice on the development of alloreactive class I-specific, class II-specific, and Mls-specific T cell proliferative responses. Responses to both class I and class II alloantigens, as well as to Mls antigens, were nearly abrogated at the end of the 2- to 3-wk in vivo(More)
My interest in Hemoencephalography (HEG) started early in 1998, after becoming aware of Hershel Toomim’s Near Infrared Spectrophotometry (NIRS) HEG system. The reason for my immediate interest was that 70% of my practice represents work with migraine patients. Although the precise etiology of migraine headaches has yet to be determined, there is universal(More)
A soluble protein of unknown function was shown, by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, to be present in Neisseria gonorrhoeae at significantly higher concentrations than in the other related bacteria tested. The data indicate the possibility of this protein being specific to Neisseria gonorrhoeae. This protein was designated as NG 8.4 and(More)
