Comparison of the inferred amino acid sequence of outer-membrane protein PIB from gonococcal strain P9 with those from other serovars reveals that sequence variations occur in two discrete regions of the molecule centred on residues 196 (Var1) and 237 (Var2). A series of peptides spanning the amino acid sequence of the protein were synthesized on(More)
A panel of 12 monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) raised against foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) of serotype C1 (FMDV C-S8c1) and 11 MAbs raised against other FMDVs have been used to evaluate the reactivity of 14 isolates of FMDV of serotype C1 (series FMDV C-S), 12 of them from one disease episode (Spain 1979-1982). The assays used were immunoelectrotransfer(More)
Development of vaccination strategies against hepatitis C virus (HCV) is of paramount importance. With this aim, we tested the ability of dendritic cell-activating reagents polyinosinic-polycytidylic acid (poly(I:C)) and anti-CD40, as adjuvants to induce T-cell responses against HCV. Immunization of mice with these adjuvants induced dendritic cell(More)
