Don, thanks for the update.  The immunosuppressive domain was identified 
some time ago by homology to retroviral immunosuppressive domains, as I 
recall; when I went through a literature search earlier this year there 
was no experimental evidence for that.  Do you recall if it has been 
actually tested (the protein in isolation, of course), or if this is 
still a prediction?
