    J Immunol 166:4074-82. 2001
    ..Together, these data suggest that Mtb-induced TNF-alpha production is largely dependent on TLR signaling. In contrast, Mtb-induced NO production may be either TLR independent or mediated by TLR proteins in a MyD88-independent manner...

    J D Carroll
    Department of Medicine, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, USA
    Tuber Lung Dis 80:117-30. 2000
    ..Objective: In order to identify M. avium genes that may be involved in bacterial uptake and intracellular survival, a phoA -based reporter system was used to identify genes that encoded surface-expressed or exported proteins...

    J Keane
    The Pulmonary Center, Boston University School of Medicine, MA 02118, USA
    J Immunol 160:5945-54. 1998
    ..The data suggest cross-species conservation of IL-16 receptor structures as well. Inhibitory peptides may be useful in disease states where the proinflammatory functions of IL-16 are detrimental to the host...
