Identity management refers to the process of representing and recognising entities as digital identities in computer networks. Authentication, which is an integral part of identity management, serves to verify claims about holding specific identities. Identity management is therefore fundamental to, and sometimes include, other security constructs such as(More)
Nonlymphoid accessory cells play an important role in antigen presentation (1, 2). This accessory cell function has been attributed to macrophages, but more recent data suggest that a specialized dendritic cell, probably in the macrophage lineage but quite distinct from conventional macrophages, is probably the cell that is primarily involved in antigen(More)
LEW (RT1l) rats were immunized with peptides corresponding to the alpha helical region of the alpha 1 domain (peptide 1), the beta sheet of the alpha 2 domain (peptide 2), and the alpha helical region of the alpha 2 domain (peptide 3) of the RT1-Aav1 classical class I molecule of the DA (RT1av1) strain. The immunizations were without carriers, and the(More)
DA (RT1a) hearts were transplanted into PVG (RT1c) or DA recipients, excised on days 1, 3, 5, or 7 after grafting, and examined by immunohistological techniques and quantitative absorption analyses, using allospecific mouse anti-rat class I and class II major histocompatibility complex (MHC) monoclonal antibodies. Cryostat sections stained by the peroxidase(More)
The tissue distribution of the canine and human homologues of Thy-1 were studied using quantitative absorption analyses of liver absorbed anti-brain xenosera assayed on thymus cells. Cross-reactivity studies with pure rat Thy-1 established that the assays were detecting the homologues of rat Thy-1. The results showed that the tissue distribution of Thy-1(More)
We have identified large quantities of a water-soluble, non-RT1.A class I MHC molecule in the serum of the DA rat strain, with a similar molecule being found in aqueous extracts of DA liver. The non-RT1.A class I molecules have heavy chains of 41 kD, which is smaller than RT1.A class I molecules isolated from liver membranes (45 kD) but larger than(More)
Immunohistological studies with a mouse anti-rat macrophage mAb (BMAC-5) demonstrated the presence of numerous positive cells in the interstitial connective tissues of many organs. The pattern resembled that seen with anti-MHC class II antibodies, with the striking exception that BMAC-5+ cells were rare or absent in the portal triad, the islets of(More)
Initial studies with the monoclonal antibody F8-11-13 described in this paper showed that it reacted strongly with B lymphocytes, did not react at all with granulocytes, and reacted only weakly with a small subpopulation of thymocytes and peripheral T lymphocytes. This picture was entirely different from that seen with monoclonal antibodies to the leukocyte(More)
The F10-44-2 monoclonal antibody was originally shown to interact with a determinant found predominantly in human brain and leucocytes. In this study we demonstrate by quantitative absorption analysis with homogenates of the head of the caudate nucleus, putamen, thalamus, cerebral grey matter, cerebral white matter, corpus callosum and cerebellar folia that(More)
A monoclonal antibody to human Thy-1 has been used to study the anatomical localization of Thy-1 in human brain and to quantitate the relative amounts of Thy-1 in different brain subregions. Quantitative absorption analyses using homogenates of carefully dissected brain subregions, together with an [125I]anti-immunoglobulin binding assay using brain(More)
