High affinity recognition sites for benzodiazepines are part of the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) supramolecular complex on the plasma membrane of neurons in the mammalian brain. Synthetic agonist benzodiazepines promote GABA-ergic neurotransmission, and hence the hypnotic and anxiolytic effects of this class of drugs, by binding to these sites. A normal(More)
A study of 18 unrelated families with idiopathic haemochromatosis (I.H.C.) was undertaken to define the relative values of HLA typing and serum-ferritin estimation in the early detection of the disease. Sharing of both HLA haplotypes with the proband indicated a high risk of I.H.C. in siblings; but HLA typing was of limited value in detecting affected(More)

Numerous investigators have shown that responses of T lymphocytes to mitogens and antigens require accessory cells, which have generally been considered to be Ia + macrophages (1-7). We recently reported (8) that a distinctly different cell, the dendritic cell, functioned as the required accessory cell in periodate-induced responses of rat lymph node cells(More)
