Within the Homeric Epics, vital references to express self sustaining structures and mechanisms of very complex know-how, resembling automata and synthetic intelligence, in addition to to nearly smooth tools of layout and creation are incorporated. no matter if these beneficial properties of Homeric technological know-how have been simply poetic suggestions (which on many events doesn't clarify the spectacular info of layout and manufacture, just like the ones incorporated within the current volume), they appear to turn out that those achievements have been good inside of human power.

Manuscript in preparation). 10. , 1995). 11. , submitted for publication). )Iincreases fibroblast CD40 expression. CD40 ligation also results in increased production of GM-CSF and MIP-la by synoviocytes. Thus, as summarized in Fig. 9, CD40 appears to be functional on multiple cell types. VI. In Vivo Role of CD40-CD40-1 Interactions A. , I N THE 42 CEES VAN KOOTEN A N D JACQUES RANCHEHEAU Fic: 9. Functional consequences of CD40 triggering on different cell types. Activation includes increase in cell size and alteration of phenotype.

At this stage, interactions between T cells and FDCs are likely to occur. In particular, FDCs may be induced to proliferate as indicated by the considerably denser FDC network in secondary follicles by contrast to primary follicles and by the existence of Ki67+ FDCs in secondary follicles. , submitted for publication). , 1995) (Fig. 12). In fact, such as mechanism prevents the possibility that immune responses may be dominated by only a few B cell clones that would prevent the building of a repertoire vast enough to match the extreme diversity of potentially harmful antigens.

These cells may express Fas-L and thus may represent an ultimate selection gate to kill nonselected B cells in a Fas/Fas-L-dependent interaction. (iii) Centrocytes display antigen receptors that acquired an affinity for autoantigens (“B auto” in Fig. 11B). A very large repertoire of autoantigens is likely to be present within the germinal center microenvironment.
