We identified an autoantibody that reacts with calpastatin [an inhibitor protein of the calcium-dependent neutral protease calpain (EC 3.4.22.17)]. In early immunoblot studies, sera from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) recognized unidentified 60-, 45-, and 75-kDa proteins in HeLa cell extracts. To identify these autoantigens, we used patient sera to(More)
We propose a neural circuit model forming a semantic network with exceptions using the spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP) of inhibitory synapses. To evaluate the proposed model, we conducted nine types of computer simulation by combining the three STDP rules for inhibitory synapses and the three spike pairing rules. The simulation results obtained(More)
