Maternal activating KIRs protect against human reproductive failure mediated by fetal HLA-C2.
Many common disorders of pregnancy are attributed to insufficient invasion of the uterine lining by trophoblast, fetal cells that are the major cell type of the placenta. Interactions between fetalExpand

Current concepts in neuroanatomical tracing
The development of new axonal tract tracing and cell labelling methods has revolutionised neurobiology in the last 30 years. The aim of this review is to consider some of the key methods ofExpand

HLA-C cell surface expression and control of HIV/AIDS correlate with a variant upstream of HLA-C
A variant 35 kb upstream of the HLA-C gene (-35C/T) was previously shown to associate with HLA-C mRNA expression level and steady-state plasma HIV RNA levels. We genotyped this variant in 1,698Expand

Influence of HLA-C Expression Level on HIV Control
Thwarting HIV Multiple genome-wide association studies have revealed that human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genes of the major histocompatibility complex locus have the strongest impact on HIV. InExpand

Human leucocyte antigen (HLA) expression of primary trophoblast cells and placental cell lines, determined using single antigen beads to characterize allotype specificities of anti‐HLA antibodies
Human trophoblast cells express an unusual repertoire of human leucocyte antigen (HLA) molecules which has been difficult to define. Close homology between and extreme polymorphism at the classicalExpand

Genome-wide expression profile of first trimester villous and extravillous human trophoblast cells
We have examined the transcriptional changes associated with differentiation from villous to extravillous trophoblast using a whole genome microarray. Villous trophoblast (VT) is in contact withExpand

HLA Class I Allelic Sequence and Conformation Regulate Leukocyte Ig-Like Receptor Binding
Leukocyte Ig-like receptors (LILRs) are a family of innate immune receptors predominantly expressed by myeloid cells that can alter the Ag presentation properties of macrophages and dendritic cells.Expand

A Novel Variant Marking HLA-DP Expression Levels Predicts Recovery from Hepatitis B Virus Infection
ABSTRACT Variants near the HLA-DP gene show the strongest genome-wide association with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and HBV recovery/persistence in Asians. To test the effect of theExpand

Genome-Wide Association Study of Spontaneous Resolution of Hepatitis C Virus Infection: Data From Multiple Cohorts
UNLABELLED Chinese translation BACKGROUND Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections occur worldwide and either spontaneously resolve or persist and markedly increase the person's lifetime risk forExpand

Mechanisms of synchronous activity in cerebellar Purkinje cells
Complex spike synchrony is thought to be a key feature of how inferior olive climbing fibre afferents make their vital contribution to cerebellar function. However, little is known about whether theExpand
