In Saccharomyces cerevisiae maltose utilization requires a functional MAL locus, each composed of three genes: MALR (gene 3) encoding a regulatory protein, MALT (gene 1) encoding maltose permease and MALS (gene 2) encoding maltase. We show that constitutive activation of the RAS/protein kinase A pathway severely reduces growth of MAL1 strains on maltose.(More)
We investigated the contribution of transfer of Ag-experienced donor T cells to the immune reconstitution of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) recipients. To this purpose, we used a combination of cell culture methods to isolate tetanus toxoid (TT)-specific T cell clones, and a sensitive and specific heteroduplex analysis to monitor the presence(More)
The product of the START gene CDC25, an upstream element of the RAS/adenylyl cyclase pathway in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, was identified using specific antibodies raised against a chimeric beta-galactosidase/CDC25 protein. The CDC25 protein is poorly expressed and can be detected only when the CDC25 gene is overexpressed under the control of the(More)
We were interested in studying the lung allergen-specific T cell repertoire in different conditions of allergen exposure in subjects with atopic asthma. Twenty-one allergic individuals were studied: 17 subjects suffering mainly from asthma and 4 from rhinitis. They all performed spirometry and methacholine challenge. All patients were subjected to(More)
