IL-2 Regulates Perforin and Granzyme Gene Expression in CD8+ T Cells Independently of Its Effects on Survival and Proliferation1
Perforin and the serine protease granzymes are key effectors of CD8+ T cell granule-mediated cytotoxicity, but the requirements for their expression remain largely undefined. We show in this studyExpand

A Clonal Culture System Demonstrates That IL-4 Induces a Subpopulation of Noncytolytic T Cells with Low CD8, Perforin, and Granzyme Expression1
Immune deviation of cytolytic T cell function, induced by type 2 cytokines like IL-4, is an attractive concept to explain failure of the immune system in some diseases. However, this concept isExpand

Progressive Differentiation and Commitment of CD8+ T Cells to a Poorly Cytolytic CD8low Phenotype in the Presence of IL-41
Exposure to IL-4 during activation of naive murine CD8+ T cells leads to generation of IL-4-producing effector cells with reduced surface CD8, low perforin, granzyme B and granzyme C mRNA, and poorExpand

Identification of a Cytotoxic T-Lymphocyte Response to the Novel BARF0 Protein of Epstein-Barr Virus: a Critical Role for Antigen Expression
ABSTRACT The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-encoded BARF0 open reading frame gene products are consistently expressed in EBV-positive Burkitt’s lymphoma (BL) cell lines, nasopharyngeal carcinoma cellExpand

Aeromonas wound infection in burns.
Infection of burn patients with the Aeromonas organism is an uncommon event. This paper documents four cases of Aeromonas hydrophila and one case involving both A. hydrophila and A. caviae occurringExpand

Profiling the CD8low phenotype, an alternative career choice for CD8 T cells during primary differentiation
A CD8+ T cell of naive phenotype has multiple career choices during its primary differentiation into an effector cell population. One of these career options is becoming a CD8low T cell. We haveExpand

NKT cell-dependent leukemia eradication following stem cell mobilization with potent G-CSF analogs.
NKT cells have pivotal roles in immune regulation and tumor immunosurveillance. We report that the G-CSF and FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 ligand (Flt-3L) chimeric cytokine, progenipoietin-1, markedlyExpand

The fluorolysis assay, a highly sensitive method for measuring the cytolytic activity of T cells at very low numbers.
We have developed a highly sensitive cytolysis test, the fluorolysis assay, as a simple nonradioactive and inexpensive alternative to the standard 51Cr-release assay. P815 cells were stablyExpand

Engagement of CD40 antigen with soluble CD40 ligand up-regulates peptide transporter expression and restores endogenous processing function in Burkitt's lymphoma cells.
Cells from the EBV-associated tumor, Burkitt's lymphoma (BL), are known to be highly inefficient at endogenous processing of class I-restricted CTL epitopes due to a consistent loss of peptideExpand

Epstein-Barr nuclear antigen-3 and -4 interact with RBP-2N, a major isoform of RBP-J kappa in B lymphocytes.
The Epstein-Barr nuclear antigen (EBNA)-3 and EBNA-4 proteins are thought to act as transcriptional transactivators. The yeast two-hybrid system and coimmunoprecipitation were used to demonstrateExpand
