      Li, Gang; Diogo, Dorothee; Wu, Di; Spoonamore, Jim; Dancik, Vlado; Franke, Lude; Kurreeman, Fina; Rossin, Elizabeth Jeffries; Duclos, Grant; Hartland, Cathy; Zhou, Xuezhong; Li, Kejie; Liu, Jun; De Jager, Philip Lawrence; Siminovitch, Katherine A.; Zhernakova, Alexandra; Raychaudhuri, Soumya; Bowes, John; Eyre, Steve; Padyukov, Leonid; Gregersen, Peter K.; Worthington, Jane; Gupta, Namrata; Clemons, Paul A.; Stahl, Eli; Tolliday, Nicola; Plenge, Robert M. (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      Although genetic and non-genetic studies in mouse and human implicate the CD40 pathway in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), there are no approved drugs that inhibit CD40 signaling for clinical care in RA or any other disease. ...
    • Isolation of Monoclonal Antibodies with Predetermined Conformational Epitope Specificity 

      Sholukh, Anton M.; Mukhtar, Muhammad Mahmood; Humbert, Michael; Essono, Sosthène S.; Watkins, Jennifer D.; Vyas, Hemant Kumar; Shanmuganathan, Vivekanandan; Hemashettar, Girish; Kahn, Maria; Hu, Shiu-Lok; Montefiori, David C.; Polonis, Victoria R.; Schur, Peter Henry; Ruprecht, Ruth Margrit (Public Library of Science, 2012)
      Existing technologies allow isolating antigen-specific monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) from B cells. We devised a direct approach to isolate mAbs with predetermined conformational epitope specificity, using epitope mimetics ...
    • A Refined Study of FCRL Genes from a Genome-Wide Association Study for Graves’ Disease 

      Zhao, Shuang-Xia; Liu, Wei; Zhan, Ming; Song, Zhi-Yi; Yang, Shao-Ying; Xue, Li-Qiong; Pan, Chun-Ming; Gu, Zhao-Hui; Liu, Bing-Li; Wang, Hai-Ning; Liang, Liming; Liang, Jun; Zhang, Xiao-Mei; Yuan, Guo-Yue; Li, Chang-Gui; Chen, Ming-Dao; Chen, Jia-Lun; Gao, Guan-Qi; Song, Huai-Dong (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      To pinpoint the exact location of the etiological variant/s present at 1q21.1 harboring FCRL1-5 and CD5L genes, we carried out a refined association study in the entire FCRL region in 1,536 patients with Graves’ disease ...
