The cellular stress response (SR) is a phylogenetically conserved protection mechanism that involves inhibition of protein synthesis through recruitment of translation factors such as eIF4G into insoluble stress granules (SGs) and blockade of proinflammatory responses by interruption of the signaling pathway from tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) to(More)
Upon immunization and restimulation with tumors induced by the endogenous AKR/Gross murine leukemia virus (MuLV), C57BL/6 mice generate vigorous H-2K(b)-restricted cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) responses to a determinant (KSPWFTTL) derived from the p15E transmembrane portion of the viral envelope glycoprotein. By contrast, the highly homologous determinant(More)
An emv-14-derived, replication-competent ecotropic murine leukemia virus [MuLV], designated AK7, was previously cloned from the AKXL-5 recombinant inbred mouse strain and partially characterized. While genetically encoding for an envelope-derived immunodominant CTL epitope [KSPWFTTL] located in the transmembrane region of p15TM, this virus, unlike the(More)
PINK1 cDNA and a green fluorescent protein (GFP) reporter plasmid and then stressed with the peptide aldehyde Cbz-leu-leuleucinal (MG-132), which inhibits the proteasome and induces apoptosis via distinct mechanisms, including mitochondrial injury (8). Analysis of TMRM fluorescence in GFPpositive cells revealed that the PINK1 mutation had no significant(More)
C57BL/6 mice characteristically generate vigorous H-2K(b)-restricted cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) directed against an immunodominant CTL epitope (KSPWFTTL) expressed by endogenous AKR/Gross murine leukemia viruses (MuLV). These AKR/Gross MuLV-specific CTL do not efficiently recognize tumor cells induced by Friend/Moloney/Rauscher (FMR) MuLV, which express(More)
