In order to realize a sub-Giga bit scale NVRAM, the novel MRAM based on the spin-transfer-torque (STT) switching has been intensively investigated due to its excellent scalability compared with a conventional magnetic field induce switching MRAM [1]. However, the memory cell size of STT-MRAM reported so far is still over 1μm, and the memory capacity is(More)
The regulation of lymphocyte adhesion and migration plays crucial roles in lymphocyte trafficking during immunosurveillance. However, our understanding of the intracellular signalling that regulates these processes is still limited. Here, we show that the Ste20-like kinase Mst1 plays crucial roles in lymphocyte trafficking in vivo. Mst1(-/-) lymphocytes(More)
CD20 mAb-mediated B cell depletion is an effective treatment for B cell malignancies and some autoimmune diseases. However, the full effects of B cell depletion on natural, primary, and secondary Ab responses and the maintenance of Ag-specific serum Ig levels are largely unknown. The relationship between memory B cells, long-lived plasma cells, and(More)
The coordinated production of leukocytes in bone marrow is crucial for innate and adaptive immunity. Inflammation alters normal leukocyte production by promoting granulopoiesis over lymphopoiesis, a response that supports the reactive neutrophilia that follows infection. Here we demonstrate that this specialization for granulopoiesis is determined by(More)
Inflammation elicits a splenic lymphopoiesis of unknown physiologic significance but one that juxtaposes developing B cells and exogenous Ag. We show that immature and transitional 1 (immature/T1) B cells constitutively express activation-induced cytidine deaminase and B lymphocyte-induced maturation protein 1 in amounts that support accelerated plasmacytic(More)
Inflammation removes developing and mature lymphocytes from the bone marrow (BM) and induces the appearance of developing B cells in the spleen. BM granulocyte numbers increase after lymphocyte reductions to support a reactive granulocytosis. Here, we demonstrate that inflammation, acting primarily through tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha), mobilizes(More)
Although the cell-to-cell contact between CD4(+)Foxp3(+) regulatory T (Treg) and their target cells is important for the suppressor function of Treg cells, the regulation of this process is not well understood. Here we show that the Mst1 kinase plays a critical role in the suppressor function of Treg cells through regulation of cell contact dependent(More)
Oil granuloma (OG) induced by intraperitoneal injection of pristane represents a non-infectious granuloma. Oil granuloma has been characterized, but the regulation of its formation still remains unknown. To address this, we injected pristane into various mice deficient for genes including, linker for activation of T cells (LAT), μMT, LTα, TNFα, IL-6. T cell(More)
The small GTPase Rap1 and its effector RAPL regulate lymphocyte adhesion and motility. However, their precise regulatory roles in the adhesion cascade preceding entry into lymph nodes and during interstitial migration are unclear. Here, we show that Rap1 is indispensably required for the chemokine-triggered initial arrest step of rolling lymphocytes through(More)
We have developed an improved task-based evaluation method of summarization, the accuracy of which is increased by specifying the details of the task including background stories, and by assigning ten subjects per summary sample. The method also serves precision/recall pairs for a variety of situations by introducing multiple levels of relevance assessment.(More)
