Three C-C chemokines inhibit human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) entry into macrophages: macrophage inflammatory protein-1alpha (MIP-1alpha), MIP-1beta, and regulated-upon activation, normal T-cell expressed and secreted (RANTES). We studied the ability of placental cord blood mononuclear cells (CBMC) to secrete these C-C chemokines in comparison to adult(More)
The C-C chemokine receptors CCR5 and CCR3 are fusion coreceptors for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) entry into macrophages. The regulation of their expression influences infectivity by HIV. We report here that interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) a cytokine that has bidirectional effects on HIV infection of macrophages, significantly upregulated CCR5 and CCR3(More)
The AC133 is a novel antigen selectively expressed on primitive CD34bright stem cells and is a valuable marker for the selection of long-term culture-initiating cells (LTC-ICs) and severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID)-repopulating cells. Human placental cord blood (HPCB) is a rich source of CD34+AC133+ cells. Since AC133 antibody is likely to be used as(More)
One of the most important components of blood cells is the formed elements called Erythrocyte (Red Blood Corpuscles (RBC)). The shape of the cells during disease varies widely. Hence by visualizing the shape of RBC it is possible to identify diseases like Sickle Cell Anemia (SCA). Computer aided image analysis techniques are useful for such purpose. In the(More)
