Human cluster-of-differentiation 1 (CD1) is a family of cell surface glycoproteins of unknown function expressed on immature thymocytes, epidermal Langerhans cells and a subset of B lymphocytes. Three homologous proteins, CD1a, b and c, have been defined serologically, and the CD1 gene locus on human chromosome 1 contains five potential CD1 genes. Analysis(More)
The human CD1 locus encodes three nonpolymorphic MHC class I-like cell surface glycoproteins, CD1a-c, which are expressed primarily by immature thymocytes. A mAb and antipeptide antiserum were utilized to determine the tissue distribution of a fourth CD1 molecule, CD1d. Within the lymphoid lineage, CD1d was expressed on B cells but not on thymocytes.(More)
Unprecedented change in the US health care system is being driven by the rapid uptake of health information technology and national investments in multi-institution research networks comprising academic centers, health care delivery systems, and other health system components. An example of this changing landscape is Optum Labs, a novel network "node" that(More)
The role of SIgM+ lymphocytes in frog mitogen responses and mixed lymphocyte reactions was examined. A murine monoclonal antibody with specificity for Xenopus laevis IgM was produced. The anti-IgM activity was not inhibited by glycoproteins other than Xenopus IgM, but could be inhibited with periodate-treated frog IgM. Fluorescent microsphere-coupled(More)
In human epidermis, expression of CD1a is confined to Langerhans cells (LC), whereas CD1c expression has been observed in dendritic cells of the dermis, as well as the epidermis. In transfected fibroblasts, expression of CD1c at the cell surface appears to exclude expression of either CD1b or CD1a, despite continued transcription of the latter genes. In(More)
Cluster of differentiation 1 (CD1) in humans is a family of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I-like molecules expressed on the surface of immature thymocytes, Langerhans cells, and a subpopulation of B cells. The only function identified for human CD1 is as a ligand recognized by a subpopulation of T lymphocytes. In order to study the(More)
The CD1 locus encodes a family of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) antigen-like glycoproteins which associate with beta 2-microglobulin and are expressed on immature thymocytes and Langerhans cells. Three CD1 molecules have been identified by monoclonal antibodies and molecular cloning: CD1a, -b, and -c. We have isolated a cDNA coding for a fourth CD1(More)
The effects of various cleaning, chemical disinfection, and sterilization procedures on the cutting efficiency of endodontic instruments Unifile (De Trey, Bois Colombes, France), (Flexofile Maillefer, Ballaigues, Switzerland), and H-File (Maillefer)) were investigated. The cross-infection control treatment procedures investigated were as follows: chemical(More)
The cDNA encoding the murine CD1.1 and CD1.2 gene products were isolated and their complete nucleotide sequence was determined. The nucleotide sequence and genomic organization of these molecules were similar to human CD1. The sequences in the alpha 1- alpha 3 domains were almost identical to previously reported genomic clones from a different strain,(More)
Forty patients with rosacea were treated topically with 0.75% metronidazole gel in a randomized split-face double-blind paired-comparison trial. With twice-daily applications, 36.7, 48.5, and 65.1 mean percent reductions in total papules and pustules were noted over baseline at 3, 6, and 9 weeks, respectively, on the side of the face receiving metronidazole(More)
