An enzymelinked immunosorbent assay showed that the proportion of transformed cells producing IgA, IgG, and IgM varied from colostrum specimen to specimen. 1 microgram/ml of IgA could be(More)
We have investigated the accumulation of porphyrins in Propionibacterium acnes (P.acnes) by 5-aminolevulinic acid hydrochloride (ALA) and its esters, ALA methyl ester hydrochloride (mALA), ALA octyl ester hydrochloride (oALA), and ALA benzyl ester hydrochloride (bALA). From the fluorescence spectra of porphyrins accumulated in P.acnes, the order of(More)
