Abstract

The ability of a tumor-specific T suppressor factor (TsF) isolated from a T cell hybridoma, A10, to act as an immunogen in DBA/2 mice was investigated. The TsF was affinity purified from ascites over an immunoadsorbent column containing a monoclonal antibody (B16G) that has specificity for the TsF molecule, or over columns containing membrane extracts of the P815 mastocytoma (the tumor for which A10 is specific). The specificity control was BW5147 (the fusion partner for A10) membrane extracts treated in the same way as A10. DBA/2 mice were immunized with the affinity-purified material or PBS and were subsequently challenged with either the P815 tumor or the L1210 DBA/2 thymoma. When mice were immunized with material affinity purified over B16G, eluted material from both A10 ascites and BW5147 membrane extracts enhanced resistance to both P815 and L1210 challenge, indicating that B16G was binding immunogenic material derived from both preparations, which exerted a tumor-protective effect. However, when a P815 affinity column was used, protective material was eluted only from A10 ascites, and this bestowed resistance to both P815 and L1210. When irradiated whole cells were used as immunogens, only A10 cells stimulated anti-tumor...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Spatio-Temporal Regulation of DNA Repair

DNA repair is a complex process regulated by several different classes of enzymes, including ligases, endonucleases, and polymerases. This feed focuses on the spatial and temporal regulation that accompanies DNA damage signaling and repair enzymes and processes.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures. Follow the latest research on Glut1 deficiency with this feed.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is a type of anxiety disorder that involves excessive distress and anxiety with separation. This may include separation from places or people to which they have a strong emotional connection with. It often affects children more than adults. Here is the latest research on separation anxiety.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
