The binding characteristics of the class 1 antiarrhythmic agents, cibenzoline, disopyramide, disopyramide metabolite (the main active metabolite of disopyramide in humans), and pirmenol, for human muscarinic receptors (m1-m3) stably expressed in Chinese hamster ovary cells (CHO) were investigated by binding assay with [3H]N-methylscopolamine ([3H]NMS) as a(More)
Natural killer (NK) cells acquire effector function through a licensing process and exert anti-leukemia/tumor effect. However, there is no means to promote a licensing effect of allogeneic NK cells other than cytomegalovirus reactivation-induced licensing in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in human. In mice, a licensing process is(More)
Mouse renal dipeptidase (mouseRDP, EC was purified from the membrane fraction of kidney. The molecular mass of the enzyme was 115 kDa by size-exclusion HPLC and SDS-PAGE under non-reduced conditions and 58 kDa by SDS-PAGE under reduced conditions. The mouseRDP cDNA fragment was amplified from mouse kidney total RNA by reverse(More)
Human renal dipeptidase cDNA and genomic DNA were isolated from human kidney cDNA and genomic libraries, respectively. The human renal dipeptidase gene has a total length of approximately 6 kb and consists of ten exons and nine introns. The exons and cDNA each encode the 411 amino acid residues of the precursor protein, including 16 amino acid residues of(More)
The contact between the immune systems of mother and child during pregnancy affects an immune response of the child against noninherited maternal antigens (NIMA) and the mother against inherited paternal antigens (IPA). However, the immunologic effects of developmental exposure to NIMA or IPA are heterogeneous, and can be either tolerogenic or immunogenic.(More)
