Syntrophins are modular proteins belonging to the dystrophin associated glycoprotein complex and are thought to be involved in the regulation of the muscular system. Screening of peptide libraries revealed selectivity of the synotrophin PDZ domain toward the motif R/K/Q-E-S/T-X-V-COO- found to be highly conserved in the alpha-subunit C-terminus of(More)
Regulatory T cells (Tregs) constitute an attractive therapeutic target given their essential role in controlling autoimmunity. However, recent animal studies provide evidence for functional heterogeneity and lineage plasticity within the Treg compartment. To understand better the plasticity of human Tregs in the context of type 1 diabetes, we characterized(More)
Regulatory T-cells (Treg) have been the focus of immunologic research due to their role in establishing tolerance for harmless antigens versus allowing immune responses against foes. Increased Treg frequencies measured by mRNA expression or protein synthesis of the Treg marker FOXP3 were found in various cancers, indicating that dysregulation of Treg levels(More)
The proline-rich domain of synaptojanin 1, a synaptic protein with phosphatidylinositol phosphatase activity, binds to amphiphysin and to a family of recently discovered proteins known as the SH3p4/8/13, the SH3-GL, or the endophilin family. These interactions are mediated by SH3 domains and are believed to play a regulatory role in synaptic vesicle(More)
BACKGROUND The imbalance between Th17 and Treg cells has been studied in various diseases including allergic asthma but their roles have not been fully understood in the development of the late phase asthmatic response. OBJECTIVES To determine changes in Th17 and Treg cell numbers between isolated early responders (ERs) and dual responders (DRs)(More)
