An immunoperoxidase study of S-100 protein distribution in normal and neoplastic tissues
ABSTRACTThe presence of S-100 protein was immunohistochemically studied in many types of formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tumors (260 cases). Peripheral nerve tumors, i.e., schwannomas,Expand

Direct recognition of rat MHC antigens on rat antigen-presenting cells by mouse CD4+ and CD8+ T cells and establishment of T cell clones exhibiting a direct recognition pathway.
Alloantigens are recognized by T cells either through a direct pathway, which involves recognition of alloantigens expressed on allogeneic antigen-presenting cells (APC), or through an indirectExpand

Ganglioside expression in melanomas from Japanese individuals: unusual pattern in two patients with metastatic lesions of acral lentiginous melanomas.
Melanoma among Japanese is rare, and differs in its clinical and histological characteristics from that found in Caucasians. In this study, the ganglioside expression of melanoma specimens obtainedExpand

Anti-tumor effects of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3) in seborrheic keratosis.
1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3) is a drug with potent antiproliferative action on keratinocytes that have nuclear receptors for 1,25(OH)2D3. We investigated the effects of 1,25(OH)2D3 onExpand

Specific CTL Activity of CD8+ TCR Vβ14+ T Cell in Mouse 2, 4, 6-Trinitrobenzene Sulfonic Acid-Induced Colitis
We analyzed the functional role of CD8+ T-cell receptor (TCR) Vβ14+ T cells, which increased specifically in the lamina propria in 2,4,6-trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS) -induced colitis.Expand
