CXCL8 Chemokines in Teleost Fish: Two Lineages with Distinct Expression Profiles during Early Phases of Inflammation
TLDR
While both carp CXCL8s appear to be functional homologs of mammalian CxCL8, their different induction requirements and kinetics evoke a gene-specific sub-functionalization. Expand
Functional analysis of carp interferon-gamma: evolutionary conservation of classical phagocyte activation.
TLDR
The results corroborate an evolutionary conserved nature of IFN-gamma function in lower vertebrates including classical activation of phagocytes, thus skewing towards a Th1-like profile of immune activation. Expand
Cloning and expression of Rift Valley fever virus nucleocapsid (N) protein and evaluation of a N-protein based indirect ELISA for the detection of specific IgG and IgM antibodies in domestic
TLDR
The recombinant nucleocapsid protein of RVF virus was tested for diagnostic applicability in an indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (I-ELISA) and advantages of the N-protein are its safety, stability and cost-effectiveness in use and production. Expand
Genetic variation of natural antibodies in milk of Dutch Holstein-Friesian cows.
TLDR
The data show that phenotypic variation exists among heifers in NAb titers binding lipopolysaccharide, LTA, peptidoglycan, and keyhole limpet hemocyanin, and the NAb isotypes IgG1, IgM, and IgA binding LTA in milk. Expand
Enhancement of feline immunodeficiency virus infection after immunization with envelope glycoprotein subunit vaccines.
TLDR
Cats were immunized three times with different recombinant feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) candidate vaccines and it was shown that the observed enhancement could be transferred to naive cats with plasma collected at the day of challenge. Expand
Vaccination with Rev and Tat against AIDS.
TLDR
This work has shown that even the most potent HIV-1 neutralizing antibodies failed to provide protection in in vivo models, at concentrations that can be maintained for longer periods in human vaccinees. Expand
Natural antibodies in bovine milk and blood plasma: variability among cows, repeatability within cows, and relation between milk and plasma titers.
TLDR
It is concluded that NAb can be measured in a consistent and repeatable manner in bovine milk and blood plasma. Expand
Role of the cell surface-exposed regions of outer membrane protein PhoE of Escherichia coli K12 in the biogenesis of the protein.
TLDR
Exposure regions of PhoE protein apparently do not play an essential role in outer membrane localization, which is consistent with the observation that these regions are hypervariable when PhOE is compared to the related proteins OmpF and OmpC. Expand
Culicoides obsoletus extract relevant for diagnostics of insect bite hypersensitivity in horses.
TLDR
The results presented in this paper show that the use of native Culicoides spp. Expand
Bovine natural antibodies in antibody-dependent bactericidal activity against Escherichia coli and Salmonella Typhimurium and risk of mastitis.
TLDR
Sera with high NAbs titers had more antibodies binding to common microbial structures and intact bacteria, implying cows that were less potent in bacterial killing had a higher chance on developing mastitis, and the bactericidal test might provide a useful prognostic tool for the development of mastitis.
