During the past decade our knowledge of the cellular and molecular events associated with key immunological responses has been greatly advanced by the use of isolated subpopulations of immunocompetent cells, cloned cell lines and recombinant derived cytokines. Valuable as these studies have been...
Anti-tyrosinase antibodies are found in the sera of patients with diffuse vitiligo, metastatic melanoma and in sera of patients with melanoma and hypopigmentation (MAH). The autoantigen is tyrosinase itself, the enzyme that participates in pigment (melanin) formation by both melanocytes and...
Immunoglobulin E plays a central role in mediating the pathology of allergic disease. Conversely, it is involved in the normal protective immune responses against parasite infection. Both these biological processes depend on interaction between the variable regions (V H and V L ) of IgE...
Patients with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) frequently produce autoantibodies against gp210, an integral glycoprotein of the nuclear pores. This protein consists of three main domains: a large glycosylated lumenal domain, a single hydrophobic transmembrane segment and a short cytoplasmic tail....
Interleukin-6 (IL-6) inhibitors are good potential therapeutic agents in human patients, and anti-IL-6 antibodies are among the best candidates. Here, we have successfully humanized mouse monoclonal antibody SK2, which specifically binds to IL-6 and strongly inhibits IL-6 functions. Since this...
