We have purified and characterized polyclonal dog IgE. Serum IgE was precipitated by (NH4)2SO4 and then purified by two different procedures. Ion exchange on DEAE-Sephacel, followed by HPLC using Tonen hydroxylapatite and then Protein G-Sepharose, produced a highly purified IgE fraction (No. 1) free of IgG, IgA and IgM as measured by ELISA, but recovery of(More)
In an attempt to induce permanent aspermia the caudae epididymes of 17 bulls were subjected to ligation or injection with ethanolamine or chlorhexidine in dimethyl sulphoxide. Nylon and polyglycolic acid ligatures had little or no effect on the sperm counts although these materials were used in only three bulls. Steel ligation induced aspermia of several(More)
Functional and physical heterogeneity of polyclonal IgE has been reported. Extremely low serum concentrations of IgE have limited the study of these important differences. We have purified polyclonal dog IgE and developed polyclonal and monoclonal (mAb C2) anti-dog IgE antibodies. In this study chromatofocusing of dog IgE revealed two biologically active(More)
The binding of dog immunoglobulins G, A, M and E to concanavalin A (Con A) has been investigated. A passive cutaneous anaphylaxis test was used for measurement of dog IgE, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was used for measurement of dog IgG, IgA and IgM. After the dog serum fraction was applied to a Con A-Sepharose column, sequential elution with(More)
The effect of intrauterine saline on reproductive function was studied by infusion of mares in anoestrus, dioestrus, oestrus and prolonged dioestrus. Anoestrous mares were unaffected except near the beginning and end of the breeding season when anovulatory heats were induced. Dioestrous mares infused between Days 5 and 9 returned to heat an average of 3-8(More)
