T cell Ig and ITIM domain (TIGIT) is a newly identified inhibitory receptor expressed on T and natural killer (NK) cells. Cytokine-induced killer (CIK) cells express CD3 and CD56 molecules, and share functional properties with both NK and T cells. However, it remains unknown whether TIGIT is expressed in CIK cells. Here, we show that TIGIT is expressed by(More)
Transcription plays an important role in both HIV-1 gene expression and replication and mandates complicated but coordinated interactions between the host and virus. Our previous studies have shown that an HIV-1 Tat-interacting protein of 110 kDa, Tip110, binds to and enhances Tat function in Tat-mediated HIV-1 gene transcription and replication (Liu, Y.,(More)
Significant insight into the signaling pathways leading to activation of the Rel transcription factor family, collectively termed NF-κB, has been gained. Less well understood is how subsets of NF-κB-dependent genes are regulated in a signal specific manner. The SIMPL protein (signaling molecule that interacts with mouse pelle-like kinase) is required for(More)
