Quantitation by ELISA of pili and sheep antibodies to the pili of Bacteroides nodosus

Australian Veterinary Journal
K J FaheyB L Clark


ELISA systems have been developed to quantitate the isotypic antibody response of sheep naturally infected with B. nodosus isolate 198 or injected with pili from isolate 198 in oil emulsion vaccines. The predominant humoral antibody detected following vaccination was IgG1, with substantially lower amounts of IgG2 and IgM. The antibody response was relatively specific for the pilus antigen from isolate 198. Although weak cross reactivities were detected with antiserums to some other isolates, ELISA IgG antibody titres in excess of 200 offer a tentative identification of the isolates of B. nodosus involved in natural outbreaks of footrot. A related ELISA was also developed to quantitate the amount of pili in cell suspensions and crude preparations of pili used in vaccines.

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.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

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.

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.
