  • How does the CRISPR system know how to insert foreign, rather than self, bits of DNA into the immune memory? (science20.com)
  • The team discovered that the "leftovers" from the repair machinery's nibbling are actually the source of the viral DNA used by the CRISPR system to generate the bacterium's immune memory. (science20.com)
  • Several studies have shown the immunogenic role of bacterial DNA in vitro, and we hypothesised that the presence of bacterial DNA could activate the type I immune response in peritoneal macrophages from these patients, leading to greater cytokine synthesis (interleukin (IL)-2 and IL-12, tumour necrosis factor α, and interferon γ) and effector molecules such as nitric oxide.

  • Pretreatment of macrophages with either DNA for 2-8 h inhibits macrophage TNF-α production in responses to DNA/LPS. (jimmunol.org)
  • Analyses of the half-life of TNF-α mRNA indicate that TNF-α message has a longer half-life in bacterial DNA- and LPS-treated macrophages than that in bacterial DNA- or LPS-treated macrophages. (jimmunol.org)
  • Analyses of the half-life of TNF-α in differentially treated macrophages suggest that bacterial DNA and LPS act synergistically to enhance TNF-α production through a post-transcriptional event. (jimmunol.org)
  • The ability of peritoneal macrophages to synthesise nitric oxide and levels of all cytokines were significantly increased in patients with bacterial DNA. (bmj.com)
  • The presence of bacterial DNA in patients with decompensated cirrhosis is associated with marked activation of peritoneal macrophages, as evidenced by nitric oxide synthesising ability, together with enhanced cytokine production. (bmj.com)
  • I believe there is no simple protocol to selectively remove plasmid DNA from genomic DNA. (protocol-online.org)
  • The genomic DNA which is large will be retained near the top while the plasmid DNA will migrate a little further into the gel. (protocol-online.org)
