    The geometry of modified Riemannian extensions

    Full text link
    We show that every paracomplex space form is locally isometric to a modified Riemannian extension and give necessary and sufficient conditions so that a modified Riemannian extension is Einstein. We exhibit Riemannian extension Osserman manifolds of signature (3,3) whose Jacobi operators have non-trivial Jordan normal form and which are not nilpotent. We present new four dimensional results in Osserman geometry

    We survey some recent results concerning Stanilov-Tsankov-Videv theory, conformal Osserman geometry, and Walker geometry which relate algebraic properties of the curvature operator to the underlying geometry of the manifold.Comment: This is a contribution to the Proceedings of the 2007 Midwest Geometry Conference in honor of Thomas P.

    Immune synapse instructs epigenomic and transcriptomic functional reprogramming in dendritic cells.

    Understanding the fate of dendritic cells (DCs) after productive immune synapses (postsynaptic DCs) with T cells during antigen presentation has been largely neglected in favor of deciphering the nuances of T cell activation and memory generation. Here, we describe that postsynaptic DCs switch their transcriptomic signature, correlating with epigenomic changes including DNA accessibility and histone methylation. We focus on the chemokine receptor Ccr7 as a proof-of-concept gene that is increased in postsynaptic DCs. Consistent with our epigenomic observations, postsynaptic DCs migrate more efficiently toward CCL19 in vitro and display enhanced homing to draining lymph nodes in vivo. This work describes a previously unknown DC population whose transcriptomics, epigenomics, and migratory capacity change in response to their cognate contact with T cells.This study was supported by grant SAF2017-82886-R from the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO), grant S2017/BMD-3671-INFLAMUNE-CM from the Comunidad de Madrid, a grant from the Ramon Areces Foundation “Ciencias de la Vida y la Salud” (XIX Concurso-2018), a grant from Ayudas Fundacion BBVA a Equipos de Investigacion Cientifica (BIOMEDICINA-2018), the Fundacio Marato TV3 (grant 122/C/2015), “la Caixa” Banking Foundation (HR17-00016), BIOIMID (PIE13/041) from Instituto de Salud Carlos III, CIBER Cardiovascular (CB16/11/00272), and Fondo de Investigacion Sanitaria del Instituto de Salud Carlos III and co-funding by Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional FEDER).
