The MAPK pathway is required for T-cell activation; however, its role in modulating T-cell function following human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection is poorly understood. In this report, we investigated whether Grb3-3, an isoform of the Grb2 (growth factor receptor-bound protein-2) adaptor molecule that is associated with the MAPK pathway,(More)
The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) Tat is a virally encoded protein that dramatically up-regulates viral replication through interactions with the HIV-1 5' long terminal repeat (LTR) and cellular transcription factors. The HIV-1 LTR is divided into three major regions: modulatory, core and TAR. The modulatory region contains numerous cis-acting(More)
The mechanism(s) by which HIV-1 infection contributes to depletion of CD4(+) T cell is not well understood. In this report, we investigated whether a recently identified isoform of growth factor receptor bound protein (Grb2), named Grb3-3, a signaling molecule that is associated with the MAP kinase pathway and with apoptosis could be involved. We find that(More)
OBJECTIVE For the analysis of cellular proliferative activity, the MIB-1 immunopositivity of keratoacanthoma (KA, n = 49), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC, n-48) and each of four cases diagnosed probably as KA or probably as SCC were analyzed by means of immunohistometry. STUDY DESIGN Immunohistochemical reactions were performed on 3-micron sections from(More)
Serial coronal sections were cut from frozen right cerebral hemispheres from five normal human brains. From each section samples of caudate nucleus, putamen, internal and external globus pallidus and substantia nigra were removed. Sampling was such that the entire structure was removed from each slice. The concentration of somatostatin-like(More)
