SUPPRESSION OF DIALYSIS PATIENTS’ LYMPHOCYTE IL-2R EXPRESSION BY GLUCOCORTICOIDS AND CYCLOSPORINE

Previous studies have shown interindividual heterogeneity in the suppressive effects of glucocorticoids and cyclosporine (CsA) on the proliferation responses of dialysis patients’ peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). In addition, methylprednisolone (MP) was shown to be significantly more suppressive than prednisolone (P), and PBMC from patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD) were…

IL-2R binders queued for testing

Starting in summer 2021, we ran 6 rounds of IL-2R binder design puzzles. Now we’ve selected 115 promising Foldit designs to test for binding in the lab! In early 2022, we will conduct a FACS experiment to test if these protein designs successfully bind to the IL-2R target. Targeting IL-2R…

rosetta fold vs alphafold 2

S. Both AlphaFold and Xu use simple folding engines L-BFGS (L- Broyden–Fletcher–Goldfarb– Shanno (BFGS)) and CNS (Crystallography and NMR System), respectively, i.e., improvements come from a better energy potential using distributional information. The phase problem is a problem, to the point that in the past decade, several structures, such as M-PMV…
