PGRP-LC and PGRP-LE have essential yet distinct functions in the drosophila immune response to monomeric DAP-type peptidoglycan
Drosophila rely entirely on an innate immune response to combat microbial infection. Diaminopimelic acid–containing peptidoglycan, produced by Gram-negative bacteria, is recognized by two receptors,Expand

Lipopolysaccharides from Periodontopathic Bacteria Porphyromonas gingivalis and Capnocytophaga ochracea Are Antagonists for Human Toll-Like Receptor 4
ABSTRACT Toll-like receptors (TLRs) 2 and 4 have recently been identified as possible signal transducers for various bacterial ligands. To investigate the roles of TLRs in the recognition ofExpand

Nucleon charges with dynamical overlap fermions
We calculate the scalar and tensor charges of the nucleon in $2+1$-flavor lattice QCD, for which the systematics of the renormalization of the disconnected diagram is well controlled. NumericalExpand

Development of competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) based on monoclonal antibodies for chloronicotinoid insecticides imidacloprid and acetamiprid
Abstract Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) based on monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) for chloronicotinoid insecticides imidacloprid and acetamiprid were developed. The MoAbs for eitherExpand

Analysis of the activity to induce toll-like receptor (TLR)2- and TLR4-mediated stimulation of supragingival plaque.
BACKGROUND The deleterious effects of the accumulation of supragingival plaque are well known, but the role of the proinflammatory property of supragingival plaque in periodontal diseases has notExpand

Finite temperature study of the axial U(1) symmetry on the lattice with overlap fermion formulation
We examine the axial U(1) symmetry near and above the finite temperature phase transition in two-flavor QCD using lattice QCD simulations. Although the axial U(1) symmetry is always violated byExpand

Determination of αs from static QCD potential with renormalon subtraction
Abstract We determine the strong coupling constant α s ( M Z ) from the static QCD potential by matching a lattice result and a theoretical calculation. We use a new theoretical framework based onExpand

Predicting response to immunosuppressive therapy in childhood aplastic anemia
In aplastic anemia, predictive markers of response to immunosuppressive therapy have not been well defined. We retrospectively evaluated whether clinical and laboratory findings before treatmentExpand

KRP-203, a Novel Synthetic Immunosuppressant, Prolongs Graft Survival and Attenuates Chronic Rejection in Rat Skin and Heart Allografts
Background—A novel immunomodulator, KRP-203, the molecular structure of which has some similarity to FTY720, has been developed for use in organ transplantation. The present study was designed toExpand
