Serum globulins that migrate to the gamma region (most positively charged) upon ELECTROPHORESIS. At one time, gamma-globulins came to be used as a synonym for immunoglobulins since most immunoglobulins are gamma globulins and conversely most gamma globulins are immunoglobulins. But since some immunoglobulins exhibit an alpha or beta electrophoretic mobility, that usage is in decline.
All blood proteins except albumin ( = SERUM ALBUMIN, which is not a globulin) and FIBRINOGEN (which is not in the serum). The serum globulins are subdivided into ALPHA-GLOBULINS; BETA-GLOBULINS; and GAMMA-GLOBULINS on the basis of their electrophoretic mobilities. (From Dorland, 28th ed)

Direct sedimentation analysis of interference optical data in analytical ultracentrifugation. (1/1041)

Sedimentation data acquired with the interference optical scanning system of the Optima XL-I analytical ultracentrifuge can exhibit time-invariant noise components, as well as small radial-invariant baseline offsets, both superimposed onto the radial fringe shift data resulting from the macromolecular solute distribution. A well-established method for the interpretation of such ultracentrifugation data is based on the analysis of time-differences of the measured fringe profiles, such as employed in the g(s*) method. We demonstrate how the technique of separation of linear and nonlinear parameters can be used in the modeling of interference data by unraveling the time-invariant and radial-invariant noise components. This allows the direct application of the recently developed approximate analytical and numerical solutions of the Lamm equation to the analysis of interference optical fringe profiles. The presented method is statistically advantageous since it does not require the differentiation of the data and the model functions. The method is demonstrated on experimental data and compared with the results of a g(s*) analysis. It is also demonstrated that the calculation of time-invariant noise components can be useful in the analysis of absorbance optical data. They can be extracted from data acquired during the approach to equilibrium, and can be used to increase the reliability of the results obtained from a sedimentation equilibrium analysis.  (+info)

Dramatic decrease of circulating levels of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 in Kawasaki disease after gamma globulin treatment. (2/1041)

Kawasaki disease (KD) is a systemic vasculitis preferentially affecting coronary arteries. Extensive monocytes/macrophages infiltrate in the vascular lesions, implying the involvement of a chemotactic cytokine in their recruitment. We investigated the role of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1, also termed monocyte chemotactic and activating factor) in KD. In the immunohistochemical studies using the cardiac tissues of patients with fatal KD, MCP-1 but not interleukin (IL) -8 or macrophage inflammatory protein-1alpha was localized at the extracellular matrix associated with mononuclear cellular infiltration. The sites of MCP-1 expression correlated with the distribution of the acute inflammation, including early coronary vasculitis. In prospectively studied patients with KD, circulating levels of MCP-1, IL-8, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), and IL-1alpha were elevated in 73, 77, 57, and 0% of samples before gamma globulin (GG) treatment (400 mg/kg x 5 days = total 2 g/kg), respectively, compared with respective control values. GG treatment correlated with a rapid decrease in the circulating levels of MCP-1 (P = 0.001) but not IL-8 (P = 0.19) or TNF-alpha (P = 0.33). In the sensitive Western blotting, MCP-1 bound to GG. Furthermore, GG inhibited the MCP-1-induced Ca2+ influx in a human monocytic cell line in vitro. These findings suggest a role of MCP-1 in KD, and indicate that GG treatment may block MCP-1 activity, thus alleviating KD vasculitis.  (+info)

A case of hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis with prolonged remission after syngeneic bone marrow transplantation. (3/1041)

We report a 7-year-old girl with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis who received a syngeneic bone marrow transplant from her twin sister. She presented with high fever and cough. Laboratory findings revealed pancytopenia, elevation of liver enzymes, and hyperferritinemia. Bone marrow examination revealed histiocytic hemophagocytes and lymphoblastoid cells. Southern blot analysis of the bone marrow cells revealed a monoclonal proliferation of EBV-infected lymphocytes. Although she underwent combined chemotherapy according to the HLH-94 protocol, she developed severe pancytopenia. Following myeloablative conditioning with busulfan (16 mg/kg), cyclophosphamide (120 mg/kg), and etoposide (1.5 g/m2), she was transplanted with 6.6 x 10(8)/kg mononuclear cells from the twin sister. She remains in complete remission 23 months after transplantation.  (+info)

Pathological excretion patterns of urinary proteins in renal cell cancer patients exposed to trichloroethylene. (4/1041)

A study was carried out to investigate urinary protein excretion patterns by means of SDS-polyacrylamide-gel-electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) in renal cell cancer patients who had previously been exposed to high levels of trichloroethylene. Thirty-eight out of 41 (93%) renal cell cancer patients investigated had former extensive trichloroethylene exposure, but only 23 out of 50 (46%) renal cell cancer patients without a history of occupational exposure to trichloroethylene revealed urinary protein patterns indicative of toxic effects on the tubular system. One hundred controls without histories of overt renal disease and not occupationally exposed to trichloroethylene were examined in the same way; only 11 (11%) of them displayed protein excretion patterns indicative of damage to the renal tubule. These results are supported by alpha 1-microglobulin excretion data. The following conclusions are drawn: (1) Substantially more cases of tubular damage are found amongst renal cell carcinoma patients having been exposed to substantial levels of trichloroethylene over many years as compared with renal cell carcinoma patients not exposed to trichloroethylene. (2) The results support the view that chronic tubular damage is a precondition for the nephrocarcinogenic effect of trichloroethylene. (3) The findings indicate that urine protein patterns, on the basis of the SDS-PAGE methodology, represent a 'biological effect parameter' for the medical surveillance of persons occupationally exposed to trichloroethylene.  (+info)

HLA-mismatched CD34-selected stem cell transplant complicated by HHV-6 reactivation in the central nervous system. (5/1041)

We report here a patient who suffered from PCR- confirmed human herpesvirus type 6 (HHV-6) meningoencephalitis after allogeneic purified CD34+ cell transplantation from his HLA-mismatched sibling donor, even though he had been on intense prophylaxis with i.v. ganciclovir (GCV), acyclovir (ACV) and gamma-globulin containing a specific antibody against HHV-6. Serological evaluation disclosed that both the donor and recipient had IgG antibody against HHV-6 before transplantation. His blood WBC count started to transiently increase on day 10, and all blood components had decreased by day 20. He then developed a severe headache and high blood pressure, and sporadic abnormal neurological findings including nystagmus and delirium. An analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) revealed 8 cells/microl, a glucose level of 130 mg/dl and a protein level of 201 mg/dl (normal, 50 mg/dl) on day 26. At the time, HHV-6 was detected only in CSF by a PCR-based method and he was diagnosed as having meningoencephalitis due to the local reactivation of HHV-6. Although he failed to respond to high-dose therapy with ACV (60 mg/kg/day) and gamma-globulin, the DNA of this virus disappeared from the CNS upon treatment with GCV (30 mg/kg/day) combined with the intraventricular infusion of alpha-interferon. His clinical course was further complicated with meningoencephalitis due to staphylococcus epidermidis, and he died of tentorial herniation on day 79 without the recovery of blood components. This experience may indicate that intense prophylaxis to prevent reactivation of HHV-6 in the CNS is essential for the management of such profoundly immunosuppressed patients.  (+info)

IgG2 immunodeficiency: association to pediatric patients with bacterial meningoencephalitis. (6/1041)

An IgG subclass deficiency is often associated with bacterial infections. We studied four pediatric patients suffering from meningoencephalitis, two of them due to Streptococcus pneumoniae and two due to Haemophilus influenzae type b. Simultaneous diagnostic serum and cerebrospinal fluid samples were taken during income. The four subclasses of IgG and albumin were quantified in both biologic fluids by radial immunodiffusion. Very low levels of seric IgG2 with non detectable cerebrospinal fluid IgG2 were found in the patients. No intrathecal IgG subclass synthesis was found in two patients. One patient with S. pneumoniae had IgG3 intrathecal synthesis. Intrathecal IgG1, IgG3 and IgG4 synthesis was found in one patient suffering from H. influenzae according with reibergrams. Substitutive therapy with intravenous gammaglobulin was given to the patients as part of the treatment.  (+info)

Clinical evaluation of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia and interstitial pneumonia associated with collagen vascular disease using logistic regression analysis. (7/1041)

OBJECTIVE: To clarify the differences in the clinical features between idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP) and interstitial pneumonia associated with collagen vascular diseases (CVD-IP). METHODS: Symptoms, radiographic findings, pulmonary function, blood chemistry data including autoantibody, and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) findings were compared using multiple logistic regression analysis. PATIENTS: The subjects were 44 patients clinically diagnosed with IIP and 33 patients with CVD-IP. RESULTS: The clinical features related to IIP were as follows: male sex, advanced age, past history of hypertension, presence of cough, exertional dyspnea, digital clubbing, an increased level of gamma-globulin, decreased lung volume on chest X-ray, and typical type according to the criteria for IIP on chest X-ray. Increased levels of rheumatoid factor and total cell number in BALF were related to CVD-IP. CONCLUSION: These findings are considered to be useful to differentiate IIP and CVD-IP.  (+info)

Humoral immune responses in Cr2-/- mice: enhanced affinity maturation but impaired antibody persistence. (8/1041)

Deficiency in CD21/CD35 by disruption of the Cr2 loci leads to impaired humoral immune responses. In this study, we detail the role of CD21/CD35 on Ab responses to the hapten (4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenyl)acetyl conjugated to chicken gamma-globulin. Surprisingly, Cr2-/- mice generate significant Ab responses and germinal center (GC) reactions to low doses of this Ag in alum, although the magnitude of their responses is much reduced in comparison with those of Cr2+/- and C57BL/6 controls. Increasing Ag dose partially corrected this deficit. In situ study of the somatic genetics of GC B cells demonstrated that VDJ hypermutation does not require CD21/CD35, and Cr2-/- mice exhibited enhanced affinity maturation of serum Ab in the post-GC phase of the primary response. On the other hand, Cr2-/- mice displayed accelerated loss of serum Ab and long-lived Ab-forming cells. These observations suggest that B cell activation/survival signals mediated by CD21 and/or the retention of Ag by CD21/CD35 play important roles in the generation, quality, and maintenance of serum Ab.  (+info)

Human gamma globulin when administered intraperitoneally to mice challenged by a lethal intracerebral staphylococcal infection, enhanced the protective action of penicillin and oxytetracycline. This fact, added to the previously described antistaphylococcal action of human gamma globulin used in experimental and human infections suggest that human gamma globulin could be tried with some success as a preventive agent in human groups particularly exposed to staphylococcal infection, such as the prematurely born babies.. ...

United States Patent US. Cl. 260-112 B 5 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE This disclosure is concerned with the isolation and recovery of immunoglobulins A and M along with gamma globulin from a fraction obtained during the isolation of albumin and gamma globulin from venous plasma, said immunoglobulins being useful for the prophylaxis and treatment of bacterial and viral infections and as replacement therapy in immune deficiency syndromes. BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION This invention relates to a method of isolating and recovering an immunoglobulin A encirched fraction and an immunoglobulin M enriched fraction, both fractions consisting essentially of gamma globulin and the respective immunoglobulin, from a byproduct fraction obtained from a process of isolating alubumin and gamma globulin from venous plasma, utilizing polyethylene glycol to isolate both the immunoglobulin A and immunoglobulin M fractions. Immunoglobulin A was first isolated from human serum by J. F. Heremans [Clin. Chim. Acta ...
Attempts were made to break the tolerance of lymph node B cells to deaggregated human gamma globulin. Using allotype-congenic mice, lymph node cells from virgin or tolerant (5 mg) CBA/Igb donors were transferred tonormal CBA/Iga recipients and the proportion of responding donor B cells estimated 1 and 13 days later. The response of the non-tolerant virgin cells diminished with time but was still detectable at 13 days whereas the response of the tolerant cells was tenfold lower than normal cells at day 1 and was not detectable at 13 days. This functional deletion of tolerant cells was not reversed by enzymatic stripping of the immuno-globulin receptors before transfer, nor by removing T cells-which might have had a suppressor action. In other experiments Igb mice were thymectomized or left as controls at various times before tolerance induction. Lymph node cells from these mice were transferred, together with non-tolerant Iga cells, to irradiated recipients. The cell from tolerant thymectomized donors
A gamma globulin test is used to test the amount of immunoglobins in the blood. Immunoglobins are also called immune gamma globulins. Immunoglobins are antibodies that are produced by the body in response to foreign substances such as bacteria, viruses, and cancerous cells.Medical Tests Analyzer labtest bloodtest What does the test result mean?
An extension of the mathematical model of immunological tolerance including two categories of B and T helper cells, each having a different lifespan, is presented. The simulated recovery from tolerance is compared with experimental data on B and T helper cell tolerance to human gamma globulin (HGG) induced in adult mice. The performed simulation runs suggest the conclusion that in this case it seems impossible to incorporate a high ratio of both, long-lived B cells and/or short-lived T helper cells, if good agreement with the available experimental data should be preserved.. ...

Osburn joined the UC Davis staff in the 1970s, after earning a doctorate in comparative pathology. I, along with Dr. Kennedy, found that these fetuses had a demonstrable immunological response based on gamma globulin levels in fetal serum, but we were unable to associate it with any particular agent, he said.. In other words, elevated antibody levels in the fetuses blood showed their immune systems were fighting a pathogen. But scientists hadnt identified it.. When Stott arrived at UC Davis in 1977, researchers were focused on a strain of chlamydia thats known to cause abortion and reproductive diseases in animals.. But trials of a chlamydia vaccine failed to protect cattle from foothill abortion. Some researchers gave up their search. Others, however, emerged with interest and a fresh perspective. Drs. Ed Loomis and Ed Schmidtmann, both with the UC Cooperative Extension, were first to name the pajaroello tick as a potential disease vector.. Like almost everything else in this disease, the ...

(MW: 150Kd-900Kd) gamma-globulins that function as part of the immune system in protecting the body against infections. They occur in humans as five different classes including IgG, IgM, IgA, IgE, and IgD and are synthesized by the B lymphocytes. Diseases resulting from deficiencies of the immunoglobulins typically result in recurrent infections and are less severe than the immunodeficiencies due to T cell defects or immunodeficiencies due to defects in both T and B cells. Immunoglobulin deficiencies also are seen in other non-genetic conditions including protein losing enteropathies and the nephrotic syndrome
Left image: Serial sections of human kidney (FFPE) showing strong, specific staining using human anti-cytokeratin primary antibody detected with HOH-3000 (brown). Right image: Negative control showing absence of staining. Both have Hematoxylin nuclear counterstain. The need for determining specific binding of human or humanised antibodies on human tissues has been a troublesome problem for researchers, and increasingly important as validation of target binding is crucial for humanised antibodies and antibody-drug conjugates to achieve therapeutic status.. Traditional methods of immunohistochemistry often give rise to unwanted non-specific staining as the anti-human antibody can not determine between the test antibody and any endogenous Ig that might be present. Bioconjugation of the antibody to a reporter molecule, such as FITC, can be a way to circumvent this, however it is important to demonstrate that the bioconjugation itself has not affected the binding properties and behaviour of the ...

The serum of a case of hyperglobulinaemia with negative thymol and zinc sulphate turbidity reactions was studied. The serum when added to pathological sera with high turbidity values brought about a marked reduction in the original turbidity values. Also, the serum did not give the usual copper proteinate precipitate when added to copper sulphate solutions. The anomalous protein fraction responsible for the above properties was isolated from the γ globulins by precipitation at 28% saturation with ammonium sulphate. It was found to be neither a macroglobulin (Waldenstroms), a cryoglobulin, nor a collagen protein. Its occurrence in the very γ globulin fraction which is responsible for many of the turbidity reactions is of great significance in the interpretation of these tests. It is suggested that the normal turbidity and flocculation reactions reported in some cases of multiple myelomatosis might be due to some such anomalous proteins.. ...

By the use of chambers containing two compartments with an interposed micropore filter, chemotaxis of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) in vitro was studied employing various agents that fixed serum complement (C). Antigen-antibody complexes, zymosan, and aggregated human gamma globulin, in the presence of fresh rabbit, guinea pig, or mouse serum resulted in the migration of PMNs through the micropore filter. Pepsin-degraded rabbit antibody or unaltered duck serum containing antibody did not exhibit such activity after addition of antigen. Heating of the serum before treatment or the presence of EDTA prevented the generation of the chemotactic factor. The chemotactic factor could not be generated in whole serum from rabbits genetically deficient in C. However, the defect in this rabbit serum could be corrected by addition of rabbit or human C6. Serum of B10.D2 mice deficient in hemolytic C also yielded poor chemotactic activity. Interaction of the first four reacting components of guinea ...

In the past few years great strides have been made in the delineation of gamma globulin structure, and an imposing array of theories have been proposed to explain biosynthetic regualtion. The Third Nobel Symposium, held in June 1967, provided a timely forum for leading immunologists and protein chemists to review progress to date and to speculate on the future. Virtually all of the recent significant work in gamma globulin chemistry is included in the proceedings of this symposium, and the editor has performed a monumental feat in gathering more than 40 scientific papers together in book form in less than ...
The MHC class I-related receptor, FcRn, is involved in both the transcytosis of serum gamma-globulins (IgGs) and in regulating their serum persistence. The interaction site of FcRn on the Fc region of rodent IgG has been mapped to residues at the CH2-CH3 domain interface using site-directed mutagenesis and x-ray crystallographic analyses. In the current study, the role of individual residues (H310, H433, and N434) at this interface in mediating the Fc-FcRn interaction has been investigated using recombinant, mutated Fc hinge fragments derived from mouse IgG1. In addition, two highly conserved Fc histidines (H435 and H436) have been mutated to alanine, and the resulting mutated Fc hinge fragments were analyzed in both transcytosis and pharmacokinetic studies in mice and in competition binding assays using recombinant, soluble FcRn. The analyses indicate that mutation of H310, H435, and, to a lesser extent, H436 to alanine results in reduced activity of the Fc hinge fragments in both in vivo and ...

After the steroid, I finally begin the IVIg infusions. Yesterday it was six bottles and that is what takes so long. They start it slowly to make sure I dont have any reactions to it and then after an hour or so it gets bumped up to normal speed, but still slow. IVIg is a human blood product. Also called intravenous immunoglobulin, intravenous gamma globulin, it is treatment in which blood proteins or antibodies, taken from many donors, temporarily replaces the antibodies (immunoglobulins) that my own body has lost due to my disease. This keeps me from getting constant infections like I was getting last year before I started this therapy. Repeat infusions are required to maintain adequate levels. I am on a four to six week cycle and it depends on my monthly blood test results as to when I actually get it. I was scheduled for last week, but this time my levels held pretty well and I was able to delay it for one week. It is a very costly treatment because it can take up to 10,000 blood donors to ...
