      Coexpression of H2-Mb and H2-Ab genes during fetal and postnatal development 

      Georgiades, Pantelis; Kieszkiewicz, J.; Rozycka, M.; Brickell, P. M.; Lund, T. (1996)
      The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II-like molecules, H2-M, have an essential role in processing and presentation of antigens by the MHC class II molecules, because functional inactivation of these genes lead ...

      Novel compstatin family peptides inhibit complement activation by drusen-like deposits in human retinal pigmented epithelial cell cultures 

      Gorham, R. D.; Forest, D. L.; Tamamis, Phanourios; López de Victoria, A.; Kraszni, M.; Kieslich, C. A.; Banna, C. D.; Bellows-Peterson, M. L.; Larive, C. K.; Floudas, C. A.; Archontis, Georgios Z.; Johnson, L. V.; Morikis, D. (2013)
      We have used a novel human retinal pigmented epithelial (RPE) cell-based model that mimics drusen biogenesis and the pathobiology of age-related macular degeneration to evaluate the efficacy of newly designed peptide ...

      PKD2, a gene for polycystic kidney disease that encodes an integral membrane protein 

      Mochizuki, Toshio; Wu, G.; Hayashi, Tomohito; Xenophontos, Stavroulla L.; Veldhuisen, B.; Saris, J. J.; Reynolds, D. M.; Cai, Y.; Gabow, P. A.; Pierides, Alkis M.; Kimberling, W. J.; Breuning, M. H.; Constantinou-Deltas, Constantinos D.; Peters, D. J. M.; Somlo, Stefan (1996)
      A second gene for autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease was identified by positional cloning. Nonsense mutations in this gene (PKD2) segregated with the disease in three PKD2 families. The predicted 968-amino acid ...
