Monoclonal antibody II-6-18 recognizes a serogroup-1-specific Legionella pneumophila antigenic determinant which has been shown to be virulence-associated. We previously reported the physicochemical characterization by means of a quantitative fluorometric assay of monoclonal antibody II-6-18 binding to L. pneumophila, and its implications concerning the(More)
Construction of bootstrap confidence intervals on sensitivity indices computed by polynomial chaos expansion. OATAO is an open access repository that collects the work of Toulouse researchers and makes it freely available over the web where possible. a b s t r a c t Sensitivity analysis aims at quantifying influence of input parameters dispersion on the(More)
A monoclonal antibody against Legionella pneumophila has been produced and characterized. The antibody was of the gamma-3 isotype and recognised the lipopolysaccharides of the bacteria as was confirmed by Western blotting. Preliminary assays were performed for the detection of the antigen in clinical samples in order to set up a rapid laboratory technique(More)
A novel screening assay for the identification of baculovirus infected cells expressing membrane receptors was developed by using a replica transfer technique. Sf9 cells were cotransfected with wild type baculoviral DNA and the transfer vector pVL941-beta 1 containing the coding region of the human beta 1-adrenergic receptor gene. Infected cells embedded in(More)
Based on the amino acid sequence deduced from the recently cloned human beta 3-adrenergic receptor (hu beta 3AR) gene, polyclonal antibodies were prepared against synthetic peptides, corresponding to regions of hu beta 3AR presumed to be exposed at the outer or the inner side of the membrane on the basis of the putative three-dimensional structure of the(More)
A monoclonal antibody was used to characterize a serogroup 1 specific Legionella pneumophila Philadelphia strain 1 antigenic determinant. A quantitative fluorometric assay was developed to quantitate the antibody sites (2.7 +/- 0.4 X 10(5)) on Legionella bacteria and to determine the physico-chemical parameters of the antibody-antigen interaction (at 4(More)
