Ensemble is an X-Windows based, object-oriented graphics editor based on the tgif graphics editor from UCLA. It relies on Unix* 4.3bsd sockets and can be used as a stand-alone program or as an application in the University of Florida's distributed conferencing system (DCS). It uses implicitly placed write locks for con-currency control, with locks placed(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The chemokine receptor CXCR3 directs migration of T-cells in response to the ligands CXCL9/Mig, CXCL10/IP-10 and CXCL11/I-TAC. Both ligands and receptors are implicated in the pathogenesis of inflammatory disorders, including atherosclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. Here, we describe the molecular mechanism by which two synthetic(More)
The binding sites and biochemical effects of angiotensin (A) II were investigated in rat pheochromocytoma (PC12W) cells. Sarcosine1, [125I]-tyrosine4, isoleucine8-AII ([125I]-SI-AII) bound to a saturable population of sites on membranes with an equilibrium dissociation constant (Kd) of 0.4 nM and a binding site maximum of 254 fmol/mg protein. Competitive(More)
Angiotensin (A) II receptors on rat aortic smooth muscle (RASM) cell membranes were characterized using the radioligand [125I][Sar1Ile8]AII ([125I]SI-AII). Angiotensin I, AII, and AIII inhibited specific [125I]SI-AII binding, and their rank order of potencies, and Ki values (nM) were: AII (3.7) > AI (32.5) > or = AIII (54.0), which differed from that(More)
The vascular angiotensin (A) II receptor cDNA (AT1a) was transfected into Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells to generate the stable cell line CHO-AT1a. This cell line was used to investigate the binding and signal transduction properties of the cloned vascular AT1 receptor. Specific binding of sarcosine1(-)[125I]tyrosine4-isoleucine8-AII ([125I]SI-AII) to(More)
The p38 mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinases are a family of serine/threonine protein kinases that play important roles in cellular responses to inflammation and external stress. Inhibitors of the p38 MAP kinase have shown promise for potential treatment of inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, acute coronary syndrome, psoriasis, and(More)
