We describe the production and characterization of three murine monoclonal antibodies (M1-M3) which are directed against different epitopes of the secretory aspartic proteinase of Candida albicans CBS 2730. All antibodies belonged to the IgM class, and they recognized denatured enzyme. Only antibody M1 was capable to react with the active proteinase.(More)
Monoclonal antibody (MAb) 5D2 recognizes lipoprotein lipases (LPL) from different species but not related lipases. This MAb is a unique reagent, used world-wide, because it differentiates between monomeric inactive and dimeric active LPL, inhibits human LPL enzyme activity, and binds to C-terminal LPL sequences involved in interactions with lipoproteins,(More)
In human cells, three proteins are currently known to colocalize in di screte nuclear domains (designated nuclear dots): Sp100, a transcription-activating protein autoantigenic primarily in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis; PML, a tumor suppressor protein involved in development of acute promyelocytic leukemia; and NDP52, a protein of unknown(More)
The Sp100 and promyelocytic leukemia proteins (PML) are constituents of nuclear domains, known as nuclear dots (NDs) or PML bodies, and are both covalently modified by the small ubiquitin-related protein SUMO-1. NDs play a role in autoimmunity, virus infections, and in the etiology of acute promyelocytic leukemia. To date, little is known about the function(More)
BACKGROUND Abdominal computed tomography scan (CT) is the preferred radiographic study for the diagnosis of appendicitis in the United States, while radiologist-operated ultrasound (US) is often used in Israel. This comparative international study evaluates the performance of CT vs. US in the evaluation of acute appendicitis. METHODS A retrospective chart(More)
