In a randomized double-blind trial, 368 women were allocated to one of four groups to receive 19 mL of propofol mixed with either 1 mL of 0.9% saline, 1 mL of 0.5% (5 mg)(More)
Intranasal infection of mice with murine gamma-herpesvirus 68 (MHV-68) elicits a striking CD8+ T-cell lymphocytosis following the establishment of latency, which includes a marked increased frequency of Vbeta4+ CD8+ T cells. The Vbeta4+ CD8+ T cells do not recognize a conventional viral peptide, but are stimulated by an uncharacterized ligand expressed on(More)
I ntercellular junctions in the endothelium regulate the permeability between blood and tissues and thereby play an essential role in tissue homeostasis and inflammatory responses. Endothelial cell–cell contacts contain tight junctions and adherens junctions (AJ), which are also found in epithelium, as well as some junctional proteins that are unique to(More)
