HLA-B27 in Transgenic Rats Forms Disulfide-Linked Heavy Chain Oligomers and Multimers That Bind to the Chaperone BiP1
To test the hypothesis that HLA-B27 predisposes to disease by forming disulfide-linked homodimers, we examined rats transgenic for HLA-B27, mutant Cys67Ser HLA-B27, or HLA-B7. In splenic Con A blastsExpand

Incilaria mucus agglutinated human erythrocytes.
The body surface mucus from the land slug, Incilaria fruhstorferi, not only opsonized sheep red blood cells (SRBC) and agglutinated human types A and B erythrocytes (HRBC) but also caused hemolysisExpand

Cloning and sequencing of three C-type lectins from body surface mucus of the land slug, Incilaria fruhstorferi.
Three C-type lectins of 15 kDa were isolated from the water-soluble fraction (WSF) of the body surface mucus of the land slug, Incilaria fruhstorferi. Based on their partial amino acid sequences, theExpand

The ultrastructure of hemolymph cells of the land slug, Incilaria fruhstorferi Collinge (Gastropoda: Pulmonata).
3 morphologically distinct hemolymph cell-types, Type I, II and III, were found in the hemolymph of the land slug, large Japanese native slug, Incilaria fruhstorferi Collinge. Type I cell, measuringExpand

Ganglion cells in the facial nerve trunk of the mouse.
Numbers and distribution of the ganglion cells in the facial trunk distal to the ggl. geniculi of the mouse were examined with the light microscope. Counts of the ganglion cells in 22 nerves from 14Expand

Nerve fiber caliber analysis in the mouse facial trunk distal to the stylomastoid foramen with the electron microscope.
Nerve fiber counts and caliber analysis were performed with the electron microscope on 5 facial trunks distal to the stylomastoid foramen from 3 mice. On an average, about 89% of the total nerveExpand

Phagocytosis by hemolymph cells of the land slug, Incilaria fruhstorferi Collinge (Gastropoda: Pulmonata).
Phagocytosis by hemolymph cells of the land slug, Incilaria fruhstorferi Collinge, were studied with the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and the transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The fate ofExpand

Hemolymph cells and the platelet-like structures of the land slug, Incilaria bilineata (Gastropoda: Pulmonata).
3 morphologically distinct hemolymph cell-types, Types I, II and III, were found by light and electron microscopy of hemolymph from the land slug, Incilaria bilineata. In addition, vast numbers ofExpand
