Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis is a pathogen that causes chronic inflammation of the intestine in many animals, including primates, and is implicated in Crohn's disease in humans. It differs from other members of the M. avium complex in having 14-18 copies of IS900 inserted into conserved loci in its genome. In the present study, genomic DNA(More)
The structural requirements for signal transduction by class I major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules were examined. Native or mutant HLA-A2 or HLA-B27 constructs lacking most of their cytoplasmic domains were co-transfected with pSV2neo into Jurkat cells. Transfection of either native or mutant constructs resulted in a comparable expression of(More)
With use of multiple- and single-colony expansion procedures, the results of susceptibility testing of Helicobacter pylori isolates from patients with duodenal ulcer were assessed by Etest. The H. pylori genotype was assessed by repetitive extragenic palindrome-based polymerase chain reaction (REP-PCR). There was a high degree of genotypic heterogeneity(More)
