    • Gap junction intercellular communications regulate NK cell activation and modulate NK cytotoxic capacity 

      Tittarelli, Andrés; Mendoza Naranjo, Ariadna; Farías, Marcela; Guerrero, Israel; Ihara, Fumitaka; Wennerberg, Erik; Riquelme, Sebastián; Gleisner, Alejandra; Kalergis, Alexis; Lundqvist, Andreas; López Nitsche, Mercedes; Chambers, Benedict J.; Salazar Onfray, Flavio (The American Association of Immunologists, 2014)
      Gap junctions (GJs) mediate intercellular communication between adjacent cells. Previously, we showed that connexin 43 (Cx43), the main GJ protein in the immune system, mediates Ag transfer between human dendritic cells ...
    • Melanocortin 1 Receptor-derived peptides are efficiently recognized by cytotoxic T lymphocytes from melanoma patients 

      González Bergas, Fermín; Ramírez Fernández, Marcos; Allerbring, Eva B.; Fasching, Nina; Lundqvist, Andreas; Poschkee, Isabel; Achour, Adnane; Salazar Onfray, Flavio (Elsevier, 2013-10-12)
      Background: Melanocortin 1 Receptor (MC1R) is expressed in a majority of melanoma biopsies and cell lines. We previously demonstrated that three hydrophobic low-affinity HLA-A2-restricted MC1R-derived peptides: MC1R291–298, ...
