BMDC is striving to build a fan base in its hometown.
The first artistic director of BMDC was Jin Xing, a colonel in the People's Liberation Army who trained at a Chinese military dance academy.
Tsao broke away from BMDC in 2005 and formed Beijing Dance/LDTX.
He joined Jin Xing's dance company, and later BMDC.
The levels of thymus- and activation-regulated chamomile (TARC/CCL17; R&D Systems), macrophage-derived chemokine (MDC/CCL22; R&D Systems), and IL-12p40 (Endogen) in the BMDC culture supernatants and the levels of IFN-[gamma] (Endogen), IL-4 (Amersham), IL-10 (Endogen), and IL-17 (R&D Systems) in the supernatants of BMDCs and T-cell cocultures or splenocyte cultures were measured by ELISA according to the manufacturers' instructions.
H]1 cytokine IL-12p40 in any BMDC cultures (data not shown).
DINP also enhanced BMDC differentiation after 6-day culture of bone marrow cells in the presence of DINP (data not shown).
DINP enhanced the expression of cell surface activation markers on BMDCs and their production of TARC/CCL17 (thymus- and activation-regulated chemokine) and MDC/CCL22 (macrophage-derived chemokine), as well as their capacity to stimulate Dp-specific T-cell proliferation.
In collaboration with Winning Strategies, the BMDC seeks to leverage the talents, skills and resources of the foundation, legal, financial services and other private business communities to help in this effort.
The BMDC is a consortium of philanthropies and corporations that support research-based and scalable programs that improve the academic outcomes of Black boys, thus all students citywide.
The BMDC aims to improve school performance and educational opportunities for young Black men, who have dramatically lower high school graduation rates than other student groups.
