Abstract

Methods are described for the study of lymphocyte surface bound immunoglobulins (Ig) for light microscopy experimentation. a) Live peripheral lymph node cells (LNC) or spleen cells were reacted in suspension under capping conditions with rabbit anti-mouse Ig antibodies. After washing the cells were cytocentrifuged, fixed and relabeled with either peroxidase-(PO) of fluorescein-(Fl) conjugated anti-rabbit IgG antibodies (Method SC). The staining was heterogeneous and three main categories of lymphocytes were distinguished on the basis of a characteristic surface label distribution (1) all label within distinct caps (caps), (2) all label evenly distributed over the cell surface (rings), and (3) an intermediate pattern where only part of the label was concentrated over one pole (polarized). b) LNC or spleen cells were treated for the simultaneous detection of lymphocyte surface Ig and cytoplasmic Ig of plasma cells. For this, live cells were cytocentrifuged, and after fixation were labeled with PO-conjugated antibodies. Lymphocytes stained in a continuous ring and were easily distinguished on morphological grounds from the intense cytoplasmic stain of plasma cells (Method D). Positive lymphocyte counts done by this method compared...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.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
