In Holstein cattle, an inherited disease has been recognized recently in which leukocytes lack surface glycoproteins termed beta 2 integrins, which are important in cell adhesion processes. This disease is the homologue of leukocyte adhesion deficiency in human beings and has been termed bovine leukocyte adhesion deficiency. The molecular basis of this(More)
Cirsium japonicum (CJ) has been shown to possess antidepressant-like properties. In the present study, we sought to identify which constituent of CJ might be responsible for its antidepressant effects and determine probable mechanism of action. The ethanol extract of CJ was administered to mice then behavioral changes were evaluated in the forced-swimming(More)
A series of experiments was designed to elucidate some of the factors that may influence surface expression of CD18 by bovine neutrophils. Expression of CD18 was determined by immunofluorescence flow cytometry. Neutrophils recovered from the uterus of cows (n = 9) after intrauterine administration of sterile oyster glycogen solution expressed (mean +/- SD)(More)
SUMMARY Further experiments on the therapy of leukemia L1210 with rabbit antiserum prepared against whole leukemia cells have confirmed the mild effectiveness of this agent, which gave no long-term survivors. In contrast, therapy with Myco-bacterium bovis (strain Bacillus Calmette-Guérin) gave some long-term survivors, when used under optimal conditions of(More)
