Toxicological effects of acrolein have been studied in precision-cut rat lung slices and in L2 cells, a rat pneumocyte II cell line. These two models were cultured for 24 h with or without acrolein (0-100 microM in L2 cells; 0-200 microM in lung slices). Treatment with this pneumotoxicant produced a concentration dependent decrease in intracellular ATP(More)
On encountering a danger signal, dendritic cells (DCs) undergo a complex maturation process and become specialized in antigen presentation. We previously reported that engagement of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II molecules located on immature DCs in membrane rafts by lymphocyte activation gene-3 (LAG-3; CD223) leads to DC maturation.

Upon stimulation by infectious agent products, dendritic cells (DC) become activated, express high levels of class I and class II antigens, CD80, CD86 and CD83 and migrate to secondary lymphoid organs where they can prime naive CD4-helper and CD8-cytotoxic T-cells. Cognate CD4(+) T-cell help mediated by CD40L along with DC stimulation with another T-cell(More)
Muscarinic receptor binding sites were identified in membranes prepared from albino rabbit ciliary processes, using the muscarinic antagonist [3H]L-quinuclidinyl benzylate as the radioligand. Analysis of saturation binding experiments demonstrated that [3H]L-quinuclidinyl benzylate bound to an apparent homogeneous population of binding sites with a Kd value(More)
3H-Prazosin and 3H-rauwolscine binding sites were identified in a membrane suspension prepared from albino rabbit iris + ciliary body. Scatchard analysis of saturation binding experiments demonstrated that both 3H-prazosin and 3H-rauwolscine bind to a single population of binding sites with KD values of 0.87 nM and 5.33 nM, respectively. Bmax values of 65.7(More)
Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II molecules expressed on monocytes may play a role in the control of differentiation of antigen-presenting cells. A soluble LAG-3 (CD223) molecule (sLAG-3) is a natural, high-affinity ligand for MHC class II. It is known to induce maturation of monocyte-derived dendritic cells in vitro and is used as a vaccine(More)
