Tumour-specific complement-dependent serum cytotoxicity against a chemically induced rat hepatoma

A short-term 51Cr release test was used for the detection of complement-dependent cytolytic activity of syngeneic serum for transplanted aminoazo dye-induced rat hepatoma cells in suspension. Serum samples from rats bearing intraperitoneal implants of one hepatoma (hepatoma D23) were specifically cytotoxic for hepatoma D23 target cells, although this activity was not detected in sera from donors bearing subcutaneous tumour grafts. Other sera containing demonstrable IgG antibodies reactive in membrane immunofluorescence tests with individually distinct tumour-specific antigens or tumour-associated embryonic antigens were not cytotoxic for hepatoma D23 cells; and even though serum from donors carrying intraperitoneal tumour grafts contained tumour-specific IgG antibody, the complement-dependent reactivity was confined to the 19s region of fractionated tumour-bearer serum. These findings are discussed in relation to the development of humoral responses in the tumour-bearing host and with regard to the significance of the availability of an objective and reproducible assay for measuring humoral responses directed against the tumour-specific antigens associated with chemically induced rat tumours.

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.

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.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

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.
