εRI-mediated exocytosis of preformed mediators from mast cells and basophils (e.g. histamine, serotonin, beta-hexosaminidase) is sensitive to the immunosuppressants cyclosporin A and FK506 (IC 50 200 and 4 n M , respectively) but not rapamycin. The mechanism of inhibition does not appear to involve tyrosine phosphorylation, hydrolysis of inositol phosphates(More)

Exposure to certain allergens via epithelial tissues is the primary route for the induction of immunoglobulin E-dependent allergies of the immediate type associated with atopic diseases. In order to address the question whether and how epithelial cells might contribute to the induction or increase of TH2-dependent IgE production, we performed co-culture(More)
In chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients, disruptions of the TP53 tumor suppressor pathway by 17p13 deletion (del17p), somatic TP53 mutations, or downregulation of microRNA-34a have been associated with a poor prognosis. So far, the impact of the various TP53 defects has not been evaluated in a large cohort of previously treated and relapsed CLL(More)
PURPOSE CD44, a cell surface glycoprotein, plays important roles in the development, progression, and metastasis of various tumor types. The aim of this study was to investigate how the expression of CD44 isoforms influences the interaction with hyaluronic acid (HA) and how differential isoform expression impacts antitumoral responses in vivo to treatment(More)
Dendritic cells (DC) are the most potent immunostimulatory cells, with the capacity to induce primary T-cell responses. Functional autologous DC can be generated from fetal calf serum-free peripheral blood mononuclear cells in the presence of interleukin-4 and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor and are stimulated with a defined cytokine(More)
tion. We believe that this change will significantly increase the sensitivity for detecting myocardial necrosis (1, 3). In summary, we have shown that the upper reference limit for a healthy population is 0.16 g/L for TnI concentrations measured using the Bayer ACS:Centaur method. The difference between TnI values obtained for serum or heparin-plasma(More)
The identification of new biomarkers is essential in the implementation of personalized health care strategies that offer new therapeutic approaches with optimized and individualized treatment. In support of hypothesis generation and testing in the course of our biomarker research an online portal and respective function-tested reverse transcription(More)
Our laboratory has recently developed the monoclonal antibody 4F7 which recognizes a molecule on dendritic cells in the dermis of mice that is upregulated after application of contact allergens in vivo. Furthermore, this antibody detects an antigen on dendritic cells in spleen, lymph nodes and colon. In order to study the influence of contact allergens on(More)
