Consider the recovery of an unknown signal x from quantized linear measurements. In the one-bit compressive sensing setting, one typically assumes that x is sparse, and that the measurements are of the form sign((a<sub>i</sub>, x)) &#x03F5; {&#x00B1;1}. Since such measurements give no information on the norm of x, recovery methods typically assume that(More)
CD8 T cell memory critically contributes to long-term immunity. Both low- and high-affinity TCR signals are able to support the differentiation of memory CD8 T cells. However, it is unclear whether the requirements for memory development change when TCR signal strength is altered. To gain further insight into this question, we used a TCRβ transmembrane(More)
T cell responses to low-affinity T cell receptor (TCR) ligands occur in the context of infection, tumors, and autoimmunity despite diminished TCR signal strength. The processes that enable such responses remain unclear. We show that distinct mechanisms drive effector/memory development in high- and low-affinity T cells. Low-affinity cells preferentially(More)
CD8 T cells must integrate antigenic and inflammatory signals to differentiate into efficient effector and memory T cells able to protect us from infections. The mechanisms by which TCR signaling and proinflammatory cytokine receptor signaling cooperate in these processes are poorly defined. In this study, we show that IL-12 and other proinflammatory(More)
Signals from the T-cell recognition of antigen program effector functions are necessary to clear infections and tumors. The JNK pathway is critically important in regulating this process. In T lymphocytes, JNK1 and JNK2 have distinct functions depending on their maturation state and cell-type. However, the mechanisms that regulate their isoform-specific(More)
T-cell memory is critical for long-term immunity. However, the factors involved in maintaining the persistence, function, and phenotype of the memory pool are undefined. Eomesodermin (Eomes) is required for the establishment of the memory pool. Here, we show that in T cells transitioning to memory, the expression of high levels of Eomes is not constitutive(More)
Two-particle correlation functions of negatively charged hadrons from Pb-Pb collisions at 158 GeV/c per nucleon have been measured by the WA97 experiment at the CERN SPS. A Coulomb correction procedure that assumes an expanding source has been implemented. Within the framework of an expanding thermalized source model the size and dynamical state of the(More)
Radium-223 dichloride (Xofigo®; 223Ra) is an alpha-emitting radiopharmaceutical FDA-approved for the treatment of bone metastases in patients with advanced castration-resistant prostate cancer. It is also being examined clinically in patients with breast and lung carcinoma and patients with multiple myeloma. As with other forms of radiation, the aim of(More)
