Immune adherence hemagglutination (IAHA) was compared to complement fixation (CF), using standard procedures, for serological testing of human sera with a number of commercially available antigens. The antigens included herpes simplex, measles, cytomegalo-, and influenza (type B) viruses, as well as Mycoplasma pneumoniae and Chlamydia psittaci (Chlamydia group). The IAHA test was found to be as specific as the CF test, but 4 to 20 times as sensitive with all antigens tested. Antigen titers were also higher with the IAHA method, and the time required to complete the test was only 4 h for the IAHA method, compared with 20 h for the CF method. The increased sensitivity of the IAHA test should permit its use for determination of immunity, as well as for serodiagnosis of recent infections.
These studies provide the first in vivo evidence that CR1 expression on erythrocytes has an actual, and not just a theoretical (24), effect on the clearance of pneumococci from the blood. We have demonstrated that human CR1 expression on mouse erythrocytes enhances the immune adherence of pneumococci to erythrocytes, facilitates the transfer of pneumococci to phagocytes, and improves the clearance of pneumococci from the blood of infected mice.. Prior studies demonstrated the activity of human soluble CR1 (sCR1) in mouse models of disease and showed that sCR1 and its fragments are active against the mouse alternative pathway of complement activation, which suggests at least some interaction between sCR1 and mouse C3b (25). However, the behavior of sCR1 may differ from that of membrane-bound CR1. Our data establish both in vitro and in vivo that mouse complement can interact with human CR1 expressed on murine erythrocytes in the transgenic model. This was demonstrated by comparisons of the ...
Mouse bone marrow contains spontaneous rosette-forming cells (RFC) which include more than 70% T-cell precursors, as assessed by their transformation into theta-positive cells after incubation with thymic hormone. Such spontaneous RFC, examined in C5
abstractNote = {Quantitative and kinetic analysis of the immune-adherence reaction (IA) between C3b fragments and IA receptors as an agglutination reaction is difficult. Analysis is possible, however, by use of radio-iodinated bovine serum albumin as antigen at low concentrations (less than 200 ng/ml) and optimal concentration of antibody to avoid precipitation of antigen-antibody complexes with human erythrocytes without participation of complement. Antigen and antibody are reacted at 37/sup 0/C, complement is added, the mixture incubated and human erythrocytes added; after further incubation, ice-cold EDTA containing buffer is added and the erythrocytes centrifuged and assayed for radioactivity. Control cells reacted with heated guinea pig serum retained less than 5% of the added radioactivity. The method facilitates measurement of IA reactivity and permits more detailed analysis of the mechanism underlying the reaction ...
Growing neurites, which can be quite long and travel far in the body, advance as the growth cone at the tip of each one extends filopodia to drag it along an extracellular matrix of fibrous proteins. The axons tend to grow in groups of neurites stuck together7)"Axons which stick together grow together"?. , each group dragged along step-by-step by one axon called the pioneer axon. The growth cone is attracted or repelled by various chemical substances already released during embyronic development. The concentration gradients of such chemicals guide the axons to their destinations. Further detail on connections is furnished by molecular surface markers on target cells; these markers are recognized by specific growing axons.. This method of connecting neurons is as remarkable as it is necessary. There are not enough coding genes in the human genome to specify all the connections of the 10 billion cells in our brains. What is specified are the functions - chemicals, markers and growth factors - ...
Flow cytometric analysis of expression of surface markers on DCs with different treatments.(A) Phenotypic changes in expression of CD40, CD80 and CD86 maturatio
Andrew Lansley promised yesterday to "pause, listen and engage", as he tries to fight off a barrage of criticism over his health reform plans. Mr Lansley accepted that opponents had "genuine concerns", when he was forced to make a Commons statement to defend his shake-up of the NHS, giving the clearest indication yet that more changes will be made to the Bill. However, an influential group of MPs say today that "minor tweaks" will not be enough and that "significant change" is needed to prevent the health service from cracking under the strain of a funding squeeze. Nurses, hospital doctors and local councillors should be involved in buying NHS services, rather than just GPs, the Health Select Committee says. Ministers must also make it clear…. ...

It was the purpose of this study to characterize the proliferating cells in skin lesion of Sézarys syndrome and of mycosis fungoides by means of their surface markers and their response to Phytohemagglutinine mitogen stimulation. Viable infiltrating cells were freed from skin biopsy specimens by means of a disaggregating homogenizer and the cells yielded were tested with heterologius polyvalent anti-human Ig and with anti-human T-cell globulin, as well as for spontaneous rosette formation with sheep red blood cells (SRBC) and for their response to stimulation with Phytohemagglutinine. Most of the infiltrating cells in skin lesions of mycosis fungoides and Sézarys syndrome lack receptors for anti-human Ig but form spontaneous rosettes with SRBC and have receptors for anti-T-cell globulin, indicating the T-lymphocyte nature of the infiltrating cells; however, their response to Phytohemagglutinine is weak. The results indicate the atypical, presumably neoplastic, nature of T-lymphocytes proliferating
Anti-θAKR antibody conjugated to fluorescein has been used in direct immunofluorescence tests to identify spleen θ+ (T) sheep erythrocyte rosette-forming cells in AKR mice. Specificity studies involving A and cogenic A/θAKR mice clearly demonstrated that the cell surface fluorescence and cytotoxicity produced by the antiserum is directed solely toward the θAKR alloantigen. Approximately ⅜ of rosette-forming and non-rosette-forming spleen cells were found to be θ+. The tendency for T cells to bind less antigen and the tendency for antigen-binding T cells to bear less θ than other spleen T cells, first suggested by other studies involving rosette-elimination by anti-θC3H plus complement, were confirmed by direct immunofluorescence. All AKR rosettes are specifically inhibitable by anti-immunoglobulin, including T rosettes. Antigen-induced redistribution of T cell receptors, analogous to that previously described for B cell receptors (16), occurs as readily in θ+RFC as in θ- RFC, without ...
Although amyloid β peptide (Aβ) is cleared from the brain to cerebrospinal fluid and the peripheral circulation, mechanisms for its removal from blood remain unresolved.

Dear Rama, GFP and FITC are a bit different, so you cant really compensate for GFP using FITC. You state that youre looking for +/- regulation of surface markers in the GFP + cells. If youve only got a few GFP positive cells (not enough to set compensation), then it doesnt matter if compensation is set right or not because the datas not there. Youll need thousands of events for MFI stats for upregulation analyses. For frequency (percentage positive) analysis you wont need as many cells but it is important that a) compensation is either set properly if youre using quadrants or b) youre crafty with regions and uncompensated data. Whatever the case, DONT OVERCOMPENSATE the GFP. To eliminate the need to compensate GFP out of FL2, see if you can use a stain like PerCP or APC for detection of the surface marker on a Calibur. GFP overlap in those channels is much less than in FL2, so compensation wont need to be needed too much to see a shift or count positive cells. Frankly, Im not ...
The rosettes that form during compound eye development evolve from nine- to ten-cell-wide lines of cells (Fig. 4) (Brown et al., 2006; Escudero et al., 2007; Robertson et al., 2012). These lines evolve into arcs, which are composed of six to seven cells surrounding the core cells that are eventually excluded from the rosette. Each arc then zips up into a rosette conformation, which initially contains up to seven cells joined at a central vertex (Fig. 4). During this period, markers of neuronal maturation are detectable in presumptive photoreceptors (Brown et al., 2006). Over time, core cells are excluded, progressively giving rise to a six-cell intermediate and then a five-cell rosette (Robertson et al., 2012).. In the absence of three-dimensional reconstruction studies, it is difficult to determine whether rosette formation in the Drosophila eye is based on apical or planar polarized constriction, although the localization of Par-3 and myosin-II to reciprocal domains prior to rosette ...

Clone 3B2/TA8 recognizes the human CD99 antigen, a 32 kDa type I single chain transmembrane sialoglycoprotein which is also known as E2 antigen or MIC2. The expression level of CD99 is particularly high in thymocytes, T cells, T cell leukemias and lymphomas, subsets of mature plasma cells in the medullary cord of reactive lymph nodes, pancreatic islet cells, granulosa cells of the ovary, Sertoli cells of the testes, but absent on granulocytes. It is involved in T cell-adhesion processes and in spontaneous rosette formation with erythrocytes. CD99 plays a role in a late step of leukocyte extravasation helping leukocytes to overcome the endothelial basement membrane and it acts at the same site as, but independently of, PECAM1. - Österreich
Radioimmune assays were developed to assay the binding of complement components C1q, C1s and C4 to antibody aggregates and to cell-bound antibody. The binding of the components was compared with the haemolytic activity and with the capacity to form the C3 convertase activity in the presence of excess C2. The destruction of whole complement and of C4 activity is similar per 1,000 molecules of antibody in aggregates and cell-bound antibody, as is the binding of C1g and C1s, the latter being in a 1:2 molar ratio. The binding of C4 is about 12 times greater, per 1,000 molecules of antibody, on cells than in aggregates. However, the effective C4 molecules, as judged by the formation of C3 convertase activity, are much more similar on cells and aggregates. An assembly mechanism of the early components of complement on antibody-coated cells, which is compatible with these results, is suggested. ...
So that, by color-symmetry desymmetrizations of the symmetry groups of rosettes, it is possible to obtain exclusively symmetry groups of the type Cn (n). Group-subgroup relations can also serve as an indicator of the frequency of occurrence of certain rosettes in ornamental art, in line with the tendency toward maximal visual simplicity and symmetry. The full expression of the principle of visual entropy is the very frequent use of circles - visual models of the maximal continuous symmetry group of rosettes D ( m). The same is a reason for the domination of the dihedral symmetry groups of rosettes Dn (nm) over the corresponding cyclic groups Cn (n), resulting from the relationship [Dn:Cn] = 2. The priority of rosettes with the symmetry group D2n (2nm) over rosettes with the symmetry group Dn (nm), or rosettes with the symmetry group C2n (2n) over rosettes with the symmetry group Cn (n) ( [D2n:Dn] = 2, [ C2n:Cn] = 2 ), may be reduced to the question of the existence of a central reflection as the ...

Antibody-bearing cells of spleen and lymph node of the mouse and rabbit detected by rosette formation with the antigenic red blood cells were collected by micropipet and studied by electron microscopy. More than 300 such cells were examined. In the lymph nodes, rosette-forming cells were all in the lymphocytic and plasmacytic categories. In cells of the mouse spleen, macrophages were also found among the RFC, especially in the later days after immunization.. The great majority of the RFC, 70-100%, were of the lymphocytic category. These included small, medium, and large lymphocytes with fine gradations of differentiation, and blast forms with little heterochromatin. The endoplasmic reticulum of these cells occurred in short, very narrow pieces, usually in contact with a mitochondrion. The cells of the plasmacytic category also showed fine gradations from plasmablasts to typical mature plasma cells.. Plaque-forming cells of mouse and rabbit were also collected by micropipet. Of 162 such cells, ...
Unlike typical naive T cells, T cells with an activated (CD44hi) memory phenotype show a rapid rate of proliferation in vivo . The turnover of memory-phenotype CD8+ T cells can be considerably augmented by injecting mice with various compounds, including polyinosinic-polycytidylic acid, lipopolysaccharide and immunostimulatory DNA (CpG DNA). Certain cytokines, notably type I (α, β) interferons (IFNI), have a similar effect. These agents appear to induce proliferation of CD44hi CD8+ cells in vivo by an indirect process involving production of effector cytokines, possibly interleukin-15, by antigen-presenting cells. Although none of the agents tested induces proliferation of naive-phenotype T cells, IFN-I has the capacity to cause upregulation of surface markers on purified naive T cells. Depending upon the experimental conditions used, IFN-I can either inhibit or enhance primary responses of naive T cells to specific antigen.. ...
The humanized antibody to prostate stem cell antigen (PSCA), a cell surface marker on prostate cancer cells, combined with PET scanning was developed to image prostate tumor. The antibody was successful in preclinical model, although humanization caused a loss of affinity relative to the parental monoclonal antibody. To improve the imaging agent, multiple versions of humanized PSCA antibody fragments were created and subsequently tested for their abilities to image in vivo using micro-PET, with the goal to eventually detect distant metastases. Both the engineered minibodies and diabodies were able to successfully detect tumor, and the affinity that was decreased upon humanization was improved. Experiments are ongoing to characterize the affinity matured variant of the minibodies, therefore a lead agent has not been chosen, but this is expected to happen in the next year. On the other hand, a human PSCA knockin mouse model was generated, verified and maintained. This genetically engineered murine line is

Abstract Animal models are needed for the study of cytoadherence in falciparum malaria. Red blood cell (RBC) rosette formation is one type of cytoadherence and appears to be associated with knob formation, endothelial cell adhesion and sequestration of Plasmodium-infected RBCs. Since Plasmodium coatneyi-infected RBCs develop knobs and sequester, we hypothesized that they also form rosettes. RBCs from P. coatneyi-infected rhesus monkeys (Macaca-mulatta) were collected, allowed to mature overnight in vitro and found to form rosettes as hypothesized. This observation adds to the known falciparum-like characteristics of P. coatneyi, and suggests that the Macaca mulatta-P. coatneyi model may be appropriate for pathophysiologic studies of cytoadherence.
Rosetting, i.e. the capacity of red blood cells (iRBCs) infected with mature parasite stages to bind two or more uninfected red blood cells (RBCs) is a virulence factor of Plasmodium falciparum. This protocol describes an in vitro assay to monitor rosette formation by P. falciparum-infected red blood cells, including procedures for rosette enrichment, maintenance of rosetting phenotype and assays for rosetting with RBC labeled using lipophilic fluorescent probes.

First of all I would like to start with the appearance of the product. The jar looks awesome! White colored tub packaging looks very minimalist and futuristic. With the product you also get a little plastic spatula which helps you keep your product uncontaminated for a little longer.. Texture of a moisturizer is white and gel-ish. It has a typical non-scented chemical smell which I like. I apply the gel after I washed, toned and nourished my skin with serums and essences. When I patted it into my skin it absorbed really quickly (5-8 min).. The other day I put it on way more and it needed longer time to absorb, and that day I skipped serums and essences, because it claims that it can provide five basic skincare elements: Lotion, Beauty Serum, Emulsion, Cream, and Mask.. ...

We describe morphologic characteristics of acridine orange-stained Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes and the sequential expression of several adhesion phenomena. In particular, we have studied when the adhesive and antigenic modifications appear on the infected erythrocyte surface that mediate binding to C32 melanoma cells (cytoadherence) or to erythrocytes (rosette formation) during a complete 48-hr life cycle of the parasite. The C32 melanoma cell binding started at about 12 hr and was seen during the whole life cycle with a peak around 28 hr (650 infected erythrocytes/100 C32 melanoma cells). Rosettes started to appear and immunoglobulin was found bound to the parasitized red blood cell (PRBC) somewhat later (16-20 hr). These adhesive events culminated at the mid-trophozoite/schizont stage (24-36 hr) with rosette formation and an immunoglobulin binding rate of about 50%, which decreased to about half of the peak values at the end of the life cycle. Serum-induced agglutination of the
Glucocorticoid receptor levels were quantitated in leukemic blasts from bone marrow aspirates of 174 children with acute lymphocytic leukemia. Using a whole-cell assay, we found that [3H]dexamethasone binding had the following characteristics: (a) reached a steady state in 30 min at 22° and was stable for at least 2 hr; (b) was linear with cell number between 1 and 6 × 106 cells/assay; (c) was higher in freshly prepared blasts compared to blasts stored for 18 hr at 4 or 22°; (d) was specific for glucocorticoids; (e) had a Kd of ≈1 × 10-8 m; and (f) required a postincubation washing step to maximize sensitivity and decrease nonspecific binding. Glucocorticoid receptor levels in patient samples exhibited a wide range from 2,248 to 79,364 sites/cell (median, 18,123). A lower level was correlated with the following biological and clinical characteristics at diagnosis: high leukocyte count; positive sheep erythrocyte rosette test; T-cell surface antigens; presence of mediastinal mass; age ,2 or ...
