The mitogenic response of bovine peripheral blood mononuclear cells stimulated by concanavalin A (ConA) was suppressed by infectious bovine herpesvirus 1 (BHV-1). Proliferation in response to interleukin-2 (IL-2) by IL-2-dependent lymphocyte cultures was also inhibited by BHV-1. Although inhibition of mitogenesis approached 100%, less than 1 cell in 1,000(More)
Bacteria, yeasts, and molds isolated from partially processed iceberg lettuce were taxonomically classified. The majority of bacterial isolates were gram-negative rods. Pseudomonas, Erwinia, and Serratia species were commonly found. Yeasts most frequently isolated from lettuce included members of the genera Candida, Cryptococcus, Pichia, Torulaspora, and(More)
Secreted proteins from cultured rat Sertoli cells were assessed for effects on phytolectin-stimulated rat splenic lymphocytes. Sertoli cell proteins (SCP) suppressed DNA, RNA and protein synthesis in stimulated rat splenic lymphocytes whether added at 0, 4, 24 and 48 h after culture initiation. SCP preparations were not toxic to cells. SCP suppressive(More)
Quantitative studies on the binding of concanavalin A (Con A) and wheat-germ agglutinin (WGA) to a series of rat hepatocarcinoma metastatic variants revealed a positive correlation between the amount of cell-surface-bound lectin and lung colonization potential. Scatchard analysis of Con A and WGA binding to 10 individual clones isolated from a subcutaneous(More)
Tetracycline accumulation by the phototrophic bacterium Rhodopseudomonas sphaeroides has been studied, using the fluorescence properties of the antibiotic and measuring uptake of [7- 3H]tetracycline. Accumulation was carrier mediated, with a Km of approximately 300 micronM. Efflux also appeared to be carried mediated, with a Km of 25 mM. Chlorotetracycline(More)
A cDNA clone of the bovine interleukin 2 (IL-2) gene has been isolated and demonstrated to be functional in the production of secreted bovine IL-2 protein when transfected into monkey cells. The bovine IL-2 clone is 791 base pairs in length and contains an open reading frame of 474 base pairs coding for a bovine IL-2 precursor polypeptide of 158 amino acids(More)
Light has been used as a primary energy source in studies of tetracycline transport by Rhodopseudomonas sphaeroides. Accumulation of the antibiotic occurs in light, while efflux occurs in dark. Both fluorescence enhancement and radioisotopic tracing have been used to monitor transport. Km's obtained from both techniques are similar. Light-induced(More)
