Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection of dendritic cells (DCs) plays an important role in HIV-1 transmission and pathogenesis. Here, we studied the susceptibility of ex vivo-isolated CD11c+ myeloid DCs (MDCs) and CD123+ plasmacytoid DCs (PDCs) to HIV-1 infection and the function of these cells early after infection. Both DC subsets were(More)
Dendritic cells (DCs) are essential antigen-presenting cells for the induction of T cell immunity against pathogens such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1. At the same time, HIV-1 replication is strongly enhanced in DC-T cell clusters, potentially undermining this process. We found that immature CD123(+) plasmacytoid DCs (PDCs) and CD11c(+) myeloid(More)
Synthetic retinoids, ligands for the RAR and RXR members of the steroid/thyroid superfamily of nuclear hormone receptors, are used for the treatment of psoriasis, acne, photoaging and cancer. Retinoid mechanisms of action for these conditions largely involve effects on epithelial differentiation and modulation of inflammation with some impact on the immune(More)
cr-jV-acetyl-L-lysine methyl ester (NALME) is a lysine analogue that reportedly binds to low-affinity lysine binding sites in plasmin(ogen) and miniplasmin(ogen). In the studies presented here, we show that NALME has antifibrinolytic activity; however, unlike the therapeutic agents e-amino-n-caproic acid (eACA) and tranexamic acid (TEA), the activity of(More)
