The immune function of cattle infected with a primary infestation of Hypoderma lineatum is impaired during the first instar migration of the larvae. Hypodermin A (HA) is an enzyme secreted by the larvae that is implicated in immunosuppression. The response of bovine peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) to HA was examined in this study. HA blocked their(More)
The protease hypodermin A (HA) is produced by the parasitic warble-fly larva and is implicated in the modulation of the bovine immune system. This study examines the effect of this enzyme on the cell surface markers of bovine lymphocytes. HA interfered with the binding of all anti-lymphocyte receptor antibodies tested. Anti-BoCD2 and CD5 staining was(More)
