Characterization of novel fucosyl- and tyvelosyl-containing glycoconjugates from Trichinella spiralis muscle stage larvae.
The monosaccharide composition of an affinity-purified family of antigenically-related Trichinella spiralis larval glycoproteins was determined by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. This group ofExpand

Influence of immunizing dose and presence or absence of adult worms on the development of resistance to Nematospiroides dubius challenge infections of mice.
H-2 congenic strains expressing resistant (H-2q, H-2f) or susceptible (H-2k) haplotypes were compared for their ability to resist challenge infection with N. dubius following a 6- or 14-dayExpand

Evidence for differential induction of helper T cell subsets during Trichinella spiralis infection.
The H-2-compatible mouse strains, AKR and B10.BR, exhibit disparate responses to infection with the parasitic nematode Trichinella spiralis. The resistant AKR mice expel intestinal adult worms fasterExpand

Novel tyvelose-containing tri- and tetra-antennary N-glycans in the immunodominant antigens of the intracellular parasite Trichinella spiralis.
The larval stage of the intestinal nematode, Trichinella spiralis, secretes and displays on its cuticle a number of antigenically cross-reactive glycoproteins. These so-called TSL-1 antigens induce aExpand

The mouse antibody response to Trichinella spiralis defines a single, immunodominant epitope shared by multiple antigens.
Immunoblot analysis was used to characterize the Trichinella spiralis L1 larval Ag recognized by antisera from T. spiralis-infected AKR/J mice. Antisera were analyzed for reactivity with crude wormExpand

Nematospiroides dubius: two H-2-linked genes influence levels of resistance to infection in mice.
Strains of mice sharing common H-2 haplotypes but different genetic backgrounds, and H-2 congenic strains of mice differing only at H-2 genes were studied to assess the role of H-2 and non-H-2 genesExpand

IFN-gamma- and IL-5-producing cells compartmentalize to different lymphoid organs in Trichinella spiralis-infected mice.
The differential induction of cytokines associated with Th1 and Th2 subsets has recently been described during Trichinella spiralis infection. Increased levels of resistance appear to correlate withExpand

Characterization of Trichinella spiralis antigens sharing an immunodominant, carbohydrate-associated determinant distinct from phosphorylcholine.
The biochemical and immunochemical characteristics of T. spiralis molecules (group II antigens) sharing an immunodominant epitope were examined. Six major proteins, ranging from 43-68 kDa, and fromExpand

Host genetics and resistance to acute Trypanosoma cruzi infection in mice. I. Antibody isotype profiles
Some strains of inbred mice survive acute infection with Trypanosoma cruzi while others die within a few weeks after infection. Mice which express B10 background genes and either the H‐2q or H‐2dExpand
