The activities to induce TNF-alpha production by a monocytic cell line, THP-1, and ICAM-1 expression and IL-6 production by human gingival fibroblasts were detected in plural membrane lipoproteins of(More)
Mycoplasma arthritidis induces toxicity, arthritis, and dermal necrosis in mice. Virulence factors include a superantigen and membrane adhesins and possibly also a bacteriophage component. Here we(More)
Dendritic cells recognize pathogens through pattern recognition receptors such as Toll-like receptors and phagocytose and digest them by phagocytic receptors for antigen presentation. This study was(More)
Lipoproteins in the cell membranes of both Mycoplasma salivarium and Mycoplasma fermentans were demonstrated to trigger the transcription of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 mRNA in normal(More)
