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)
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)
Regulation of IL-2 production in Con A-stimulated bovine lymph node cells was studied by following the time course of IL-2 synthesis and secretion over a 24-h period. A biphasic time course curve of IL-2 secretion was observed after stimulation with Con A alone or with Con A plus PMA. Both phases of IL-2 production were confirmed by three separate(More)
We have cloned the Tac analog of the bovine IL-2 receptor (IL-2R) cDNA. Using mouse and human cDNA probes, we isolated five bovine IL-2R clones from a lambda gt11 bovine long-term lymphocyte cDNA library. Three of the clones had inserts of 2600 base pairs (bp), the same size as the bovine IL-2R mRNA visualized on Northern blots. The full-length cDNA contain(More)
