Example sentences for: activation-induced

How can you use “activation-induced” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • AICD = activation-induced cell death; CTLA = cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen; ELISA = enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; FITC = fluorescein isothiocyanate; IL = interleukin; PE = R-phycoerythrin; PG = proteoglycan; PGIA, proteoglycan-induced arthritis; SCID = severe combined immunodeficient; TCR = T-cell receptor; TGF = transforming growth factor; WT = wild-type.

  • There is accumulating evidence that, in addition to activation-induced cell death or anergy, T-cell-mediated dominant control of self-reactive T cells represents one mechanism for maintaining immunological tolerance [ 1 2 3 ] . Studies conducted in a number of experimental models have demonstrated the existence of regulatory T-cell subsets that prevent activation of autoreactive T cells.

  • In induced models of autoimmunity, the CD28-B7 interaction has been shown to regulate disease susceptibility by rendering autoreactive T cells anergic, or alternatively by upregulating the threshold for autoreactive T-cell activation [ 30 ] . Furthermore, we previously showed that impaired Fas-mediated activation-induced cell death (AICD) of autoreactive T-helper-1 cells may be responsible for the development of PGIA [ 20 ] . Therefore, AICD and/or T-cell anergy, but not the CD4 +CD25 +regulatory T cells, may be responsible for deletion or inactivation of autoreactive T cells in autoimmune arthritis.

  • The receptor activation-induced decrease of SNIP1 is partially sensitive to the proteasome-specific inhibitor lactacystin, suggesting the involvement of proteasomal degradation (Fig.

  • IL-2 may directly eliminate mononuclear cells through activation-induced death [ 6, 7].
