In this paper we report that the assembly of interendothelial junctions containing the cell type-specific vascular endothelial cadherin (VE-cadherin or cadherin-5) is a dynamic process which is affected by the functional state of the cells. Immunofluorescence double labeling of endothelial cells (EC) cultures indicated that VE-cadherin, alpha-catenin, and(More)
The role of the L-arginine-nitric oxide metabolic pathway was explored for interleukin-2-induced proliferation in the cytotoxic T lymphocyte clone CTLL-2. Specific inhibition of nitric oxide synthase significantly diminished, in a concentration-dependent manner, (3)H-thymidine uptake of CTLL-2 cells in response to different concentrations of interleukin 2.(More)
Lobenzarit disodtulIl (CCA) is a novel immunomodulatory drug useful in the treatment of chronic inflammations. Its principal mechanism of action seems to be through enhancing the T suppressor/T helper lymphocyte ratio. However, the molecular basis for these actions remains unclear. In this study it was found that CCA inhibits the production of guanosine(More)
