BACKGROUND Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is known to activate macrophages, causing the release of toxic cytokines that may provoke inflammation and shock. One of the most important and best studied of these cytokines is tumor necrosis factor (TNF). Details of the signaling pathway leading to TNF biosynthesis remain unclear. The pathway is branched in the sense(More)
The structural requirements for signal transduction by class I major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules were examined. Native or mutant HLA-A2 or HLA-B27 constructs lacking most of their cytoplasmic domains were co-transfected with pSV2neo into Jurkat cells. Transfection of either native or mutant constructs resulted in a comparable expression of(More)
