The cholera toxin B chain (CTB) has been reported to suppress T cell-dependent autoimmune diseases and to potentiate tolerance of the adaptive immune system. We have analyzed the effects of CTB on macrophages in vitro and have found that preincubation with CTB (10 microg/ml) suppresses the proinflammatory reaction to LPS challenge, as demonstrated by(More)
Plasmid DNA harbouring the human 5S rRNA gene was assembled into nucleosomes using either Xenopus S150 extracts or purified core histones in the presence of pectin. In both cases reconstitution of nucleosomes led to a complete repression of transcription. This repression could be efficiently counteracted by preincubating the template DNA with highly(More)
