The structure of the complex between the Fab HyHEL-5 and chicken lysozyme revealed a large interface region containing 23 lysozyme and 28 Fab residues. Arg68 of the lysozyme is centrally placed in this interface and theoretical studies together with binding assays of this Fab to different avian lysozymes have previously shown that this arginine residue is(More)
We constructed a genome-wide transcriptome map of non-small cell lung carcinomas based on gene-expression profiles generated by serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE) using primary tumors and bronchial epithelial cells of the lung. Using the human genome working draft and the public databases, 25,135 nonredundant UniGene clusters were mapped onto(More)
To evaluate the potential for dimerization through a particular T cell receptor (TCR) domain, we have cloned the cDNA encoding a TCR V alpha from a hybridoma with specificity for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) envelope glycoprotein 120-derived peptide P18-110 (RGPGRAFVTI) bound to the murine major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecule,(More)
The HyHEL-5 antibody has more than a thousandfold lower affinity for bobwhite quail lysozyme (BWQL) than for hen egg-white lysozyme (HEL). Four sequence differences exist between BWQL and HEL, of which only one is involved in the interface with the Fab. The structure of bobwhite quail lysozyme has been determined in the uncomplexed state in two different(More)
Programs exist for searching protein sequences for potential membrane-penetrating segments (hydrophobic regions) and for lipid-binding sites with highly defined tertiary structures, such as PH, FERM, C2, ENTH, and other domains. However, a rapidly growing number of membrane-associated proteins (including cytoskeletal proteins, kinases, GTP-binding proteins,(More)
The three-dimensional structure of the Fab of TR1.9, a high-affinity IgG1, kappa human autoantibody to thyroid peroxidase, was determined crystallographically to a resolution of 2.0 A. The combining site was found to be relatively flat, like other antibodies to large proteins. Sequence differences from the most closely related germline genes mainly occur at(More)
We describe here the structure of a murine T cell receptor (TCR) Valpha2.6Jalpha38 (TCRAV2S6J38) domain, derived from a T cell hybridoma with specificity for the H-2Ddmajor histocompatibility complex class I molecule bound to a decamer peptide, P18-I10, from the HIV envelope glycoprotein gp120, determined by X-ray crystallography at 2.5 A resolution. Unlike(More)
To evaluate the potential for dimerization through a particular T cell receptor (TCR) domain, we have cloned the cDNA encoding a TCR Vo~ from a hybridoma with specificity for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) envelope glycoprotein 120-derived peptide P18-I10 (RGPGRAFVTI) bound to the murine major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecule , H-2D(More)
