The B cell receptor (BCR) has a decisive role in transducing signals required for the development of B cells and their survival in the periphery. However, the processes that initiate these signals remain unclear and concepts of constitutive and ligand-dependent signaling have been proposed. Using...
Optimal T cell activation requires the interactions of co-stimulatory molecules, such as those in the CD28 and B7 protein families. Recently, we described the co-stimulatory properties of the murine ligand to ICOS, which we designated as B7RP-1. Here, we report the co-stimulation of human T cells...
