PD-1, a receptor expressed by T cells, B cells, and monocytes, is a potent regulator of immune responses and a promising therapeutic target. The structure and interactions of human PD-1 are, however, incompletely characterized. We present the solution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)-based structure of the human PD-1 extracellular region and detailed(More)
Colony-stimulating factor-1 (CSF-1) regulates the survival, proliferation and differentiation of macrophages. CSF-1-deficient mice are osteopetrotic due to a lack of osteoclasts, while their tissue macrophage deficiencies and an absence of CSF-1 regulation of CSF-1 receptor-expressing cells in the female reproductive tract contribute to their pleiotropic(More)
OBJECTIVE Interleukin (IL)-17A has emerged as pivotal in driving tissue pathology in immune-mediated inflammatory diseases. The role of IL-17F, sharing 50% sequence homology and overlapping biological function, remains less clear. We hypothesised that IL-17F, together with IL-17A, contributes to chronic tissue inflammation, and that dual neutralisation may(More)
Single B cell technologies, which avoid traditional hybridoma fusion and combinatorial display, provide a means to interrogate the naturally-selected antibody repertoire of immunized animals. Many methods enable the sampling of memory B cell subsets, but few allow for the direct interrogation of the plasma cell repertoire, i.e., the subset of B cells(More)
