The DCs were washed with phosphate-buffered saline and were lysed with radioimmunoprecipitation assay (RIPA) buffer.
The capacity of DCs to stimulate T cells proliferation was detected by allogeneic mixed lymphocyte reaction (MLR).
Nuclear extracts from the treated DCs were obtained by human protein extraction kit (Biovision, USA).
Above all, this present study hypothesizes that (1) MSC inhibits the activation and proliferation of allogeneic T cells by secreting Gal-1 and (2) Gal-1 plays an immunosuppressive role through modulating MAPK pathway in DCs.
DCs were placed in lower chamber, and MSCs (MSC: DC 1:10) were added to upper chamber after 2 h, or recombinant Gal-1 protein was added directly to DC medium (final concentration of 3 [micro]M, Sigma, USA), or MSC + TDG (final concentration of 50 [micro]M, Sigma, USA).
The interactions among the different dimensions of the model are both the benefit and boon of the DCS model.
Although this combination of DCS factors may work for an individual that desires employment with high demands, low control, and low support, for others this is a formula for burnout, which is associated with decreased job satisfaction and difficulties with job maintenance (Schalock et al.).
* Backward compatibility with legacy DCS and SONET systems that are assembled in the market today.
"Network equipment saving can amount to millions of dollars annually, but these pale in comparison to the savings in time that the ON 5000 with DCS functionality can provide.
