The mononuclear phagocyte system of human lymphoid tissue comprises macrophages and dendritic cells (DCs). The heterogeneity of the non-DC mononuclear phagocyte population in human lymphoid tissue has been little addressed. Here, we studied the expression of 2 monocyte-derived markers, CD14 and CD169 (sialoadhesin), in reactive human lymphoid tissue as well as in a series of 51 B-cell lymphomas by immunohistochemistry on paraffin-embedded tissue. We confirmed that lymph node sinusoidal monocyte-derived cells were the only population staining for CD169. Although most sinusoidal histiocytes also expressed CD14, monocyte-derived cells with phagocytosis such as erythrophagocytosis, anthracosis, or tingible bodies macrophage lacked CD14 and CD169. Among B-cell lymphomas, splenic marginal zone lymphoma was the only one associated with an expansion of the CD14(+)CD169(+) cells in the cords. With respect to nodal B-cell lymphomas, CD14(+) cells were rare among B-chronic lymphocytic leukemia, follicular lymphoma (FL), mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). However, strikingly, we found a strong expansion of CD14(+)CD169(-) cells in numerous diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCLs), except in cases associated with numerous mitoses, apoptotic bodies, and tingible bodies macrophages. When cultivated in granulocyte/macrophage colony stimulating factor/interleukin 4, DLBCL purified CD14(+) cells differentiate into plasmacytoid cells, expressing DC-specific intercellular adhesion molecule 3-grabbing nonintegrin, suggesting dendritic cell differentiation potential. Our observation fits well with the lymph node and host response cluster signatures described in the gene profiling signatures of DLBCL. However, the role of this CD14(+) population that may constitute a microenvironment-related marker of this subgroup of DLBCL remains to be determined.

    ABSTRACT: Ultra wide-band (UWB) radio uses base-band pulses of very short duration, thereby spreading the energy of radio signal very thinly over gigahertz. Power spectral density (PSD) of UWB signals consists of continuous and discrete components. Since the discrete component contributes more to PSD than continuous component, it presents greater interference to other narrow-band wireless systems. UWB was approved by the FCC for commercial deployment in 2002. In order to ensure negligible mutual interference, the FCC has specified emission limits for UWB applications. UWB is now under consideration as an alternative physical layer technology for wireless PAN in IEEE 802.15.3a. However, little study has been reported on PSD issues in IEEE 802.15.3a. This paper presents analysis on PSD of UWB signals in IEEE 802.15.3a systems, and on what frame reversion can achieve in reducing the PSD.

    ABSTRACT: CD14 plays an important role in initiating the innate response to lipopolysaccharide from Gram-negative bacteria. The gene and corresponding cDNA of porcine CD14 were sequenced and characterized. The porcine CD14 gene consists of two exons and a short intron (80 bp) located immediately after the ATG translation start codon. This structure is very similar to the CD14 gene of human, rat, mouse, rabbit, horse, and cow. The sequence of the porcine CD14 protein is 59-76% identical to that of rat, mouse, rabbit, human, horse, and cow CD14 protein. A highly conserved structure of the CD14 protein with respect to the leucine-rich repeats domain and the N-glycosylation sites was observed between species. Porcine CD14 was assigned to porcine chromosome 2q21 by a radiation hybrid panel. Using RT-PCR analysis, porcine CD14 transcripts were detected in liver, spleen, thymus, white matter, and skeletal muscle.

    ABSTRACT: Large B cell lymphomas can comprise numerous CD14+ cells in the tumor stroma, which raises the question of whether monocytes can support B cell survival and proliferation. We show that the coculture of monocytes with B cells from peripheral blood or from diffuse large B cell lymphoma enabled prolonged B cell survival. Under these conditions, diffuse large lymphoma B cells proliferated, and addition of B cell-activating factor of the TNF family (BAFF) and IL-2 enhanced cell division. Monocytes and dendritic cells (DC) had similar antiapoptotic activity on healthy B cells but displayed differences with respect to B cell proliferation. Monocytes and cord blood-derived CD14+ cells promoted B cell proliferation in the presence of an anti-CD40 stimulus, whereas DC supported B cell proliferation when activated through the BCR. DC and CD14+ cells were able to induce plasmocyte differentiation. When B cells were activated via the BCR or CD40, they released the leukocyte attractant CCL5, and this chemokine is one of the main chemokines expressed in diffuse large B cell lymphoma. The data support the notion that large B cell lymphoma recruit monocytes via CCL5 to support B cell survival and proliferation.
