BACKGROUND The extreme specific activity of the long-lifetime fluorescent europium(III) chelate nanoparticles and the enhanced monovalent binding affinity of multivalent nanoparticle-antibody bioconjugates are attractive for noncompetitive immunoassay. METHODS We used a noncompetitive, two-step immunoassay design to measure free prostate-specific antigen(More)
Polysomes from the frontal cortices of individuals who had histopathologically confirmed Alzheimer's disease were compared with polysomes from individuals who exhibited no neuropathological conditions. The cytosolic polysome yield from Alzheimer's disease frontal cortex was reduced 40% compared with that obtained from control frontal cortex. The(More)
A battery of monoclonal antibodies was raised against a preparation of lentil lectin-binding membrane glycoproteins from human brain. Out of 26 established hybridomas, nine produced antibodies against the human Thy-1 antigen. For the remaining 17 lines, reactivity with at least six other antigens could be identified after immunoprecipitation and(More)
Bartonella quintana is a worldwide fastidious bacterium of the Alphaproteobacteria responsible for bacillary angiomatosis, trench fever, chronic lymphadenopathy, and culture-negative endocarditis. The recent genome sequencing of a B. quintana isolate allowed us to propose a genome-wide sequence-based typing method. To ensure sequence discrimination based on(More)
The question of which cell components in a rejecting rat renal allograft secrete plasminogen activator (PA) has been analyzed. Although normal renal parenchymal cells also secreted PA, most of the PA in a renal allograft (and to a lesser extent also in an autograft) was produced by the inflammatory leukocytes. Fractionation at 1 g demonstrated that the(More)
