IL-2, IL-4, and IFN-gamma gene expression versus secretion in superantigen-activated T cells. Distinct requirement for costimulatory signals through adhesion molecules.

Journal Article J Immunol · February 15, 1994 Featured Publication In the complete absence of APCs staphylococcal superantigens induced IL-2, IL-4, IL-5, IFN-gamma, and IL-2R gene transcripts in both highly purified human T cells and FACs sorted CD4+ memory (CD45RA-) T cells. Secretion of IL-2, IL-4, and IFN-gamma, as wel ... Link to item Cite

The Mycobacterium tuberculosis 71-kDa heat-shock protein induces proliferation and cytokine secretion by murine gut intraepithelial lymphocytes.

Journal Article Eur J Immunol · August 1993 Murine intraepithelial lymphocytes (IEL) respond poorly to T cell mitogens and to monoclonal antibody stimulation of T cell receptor (TCR)- and CD3- associated molecules. In contrast, we found that a soluble extract of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), but ... Full text Link to item Cite

A standardized approach to PCR-based semiquantitation of multiple cytokine gene transcripts from small cell samples.

Journal Article Lymphokine Cytokine Res · April 1993 Featured Publication A simple, rapid, reproducible, and nonradioisotopic method for semiquantitative analysis of cytokine mRNAs based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is described. RNA isolated from 2.5 million cells has proven sufficient to perform semiquantitative analysis ... Link to item Cite

CD45 mAb induces cell adhesion in peripheral blood mononuclear cells via lymphocyte function-associated antigen-1 (LFA-1) and intercellular cell adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1).

Journal Article Cell Immunol · March 1993 A novel cell aggregation-inducing characteristic of the leukocyte common antigen, CD45, is described and its underlying molecular mechanisms investigated. Formation of strong cell clusters was consistently observed in human PBMCs after crosslinking CD45 mo ... Full text Link to item Cite

Tumor recognition and lytic competence of IL-2-activated lymphocytes: regulation of both antibody-independent and -dependent cellular cytotoxicity via P75 IL-2 receptor.

Journal Article Lymphokine Cytokine Res · August 1992 Fc receptor-positive lymphocytes (FcR+) contain lymphokine-activated killer cell (LAK) precursors that in response to IL-2 develop potent antitumor cytotoxicity. These FcR+ cells are also capable of antibody-dependent cytotoxicity (ADCC), which can be dete ... Link to item Cite

Interleukin 2 produced by activated B lymphocytes acts as an autocrine proliferation-inducing lymphokine.

Journal Article Cytokine · July 1990 Featured Publication Normal peripheral blood B cells produce a soluble factor after activation that is functionally indistinguishable from interleukin 2 (IL 2) and can support B cell proliferation in vitro. Purified rabbit peripheral blood B cells, when stimulated with a combi ... Full text Link to item Cite

Molecular signals in B cell activation. II. IL-2-mediated signals are required in late G1 for transition to S phase after ionomycin and PMA treatment.

Journal Article Cell Immunol · May 1990 Featured Publication We report that sustained increase of intracellular calcium ion concentration and protein kinase C (PKC) activation maintained throughout the G1 phase of cell cycle do not provide sufficient signals to cause S-phase entry in rabbit B cells, and that additio ...

Molecular signals in B cell activation. I. Differential refractory effects of incomplete signaling by ionomycin or PMA relate to autocrine IL-2 production and IL-2R expression.

Journal Article Cell Immunol · May 1990 Featured Publication The molecular signals required by resting (G0) B cells for the induction of cell cycle entry, IL-2 production, and high-affinity IL-2 receptor (IL-2R) expression were defined and the effects of incomplete activation signals on the subsequent response to co ...

Early activation and cell cycle entry of resting B cells after Fab-anti-Ig treatment: role of receptor crosslinking.

Journal Article Cell Immunol · January 1989 Featured Publication Comparison of the effect of goat anti-rabbit Ig (GARIg) and its monovalent fragment (Fab-GARIg) demonstrates that surface Ig (sIg) crosslinking is not necessary to effect G0 to G1 transition in rabbit peripheral blood B cells but is required for induction ...
