Background Several health promoting effects have been attributed to the polyphenol resveratrol including anti cancer, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Objective We investigated the effects of resveratrol on LAD2 and CD34 +-derived mast cell activation in comparison to the known anti-allergy drug tranilast. Methods Degranulation was quantified(More)
We describe the effect of pretreatment with alpha-2-macroglobulin (A2M) on the susceptibility of the human neuroblastoma SKNMC cell line to infection by herpes virus type 1 (HSV-1). ELISA and co-immunoprecipitation experiments connrmed the A2M-HSV-1 interaction in vitro. Indirect immunoouorescence shows that A2M exacerbated the cytopathic effect induced(More)
