The P.69 Bordetella pertussis protective antigen was expressed by use of the trc promoter from the chromosome of a Salmonella typhimurium aro vaccine strain, BRD509, by integrating the prn gene, encoding the 93-kDa precursor of this protein, into the aroC locus. P.69 was detected on the cell surface of the S. typhimurium strain (BRD640) by agglutination and(More)
Epitopes defined by monoclonal antibodies (mAb) specific for the Bordetella pertussis outer membrane protein P.69 (pertactin) were mapped using a series of amino- and carboxy-terminal deletion mutants expressed in Escherichia coli. mAb were found to bind predominantly to a region of pertactin spanning a (Pro-Gln-Pro)5 repeat motif and one mAb was found to(More)
A virus inhibitor found in gastric secretions and in extracts from gastrointestinal tissues is described. The inhibitor shares a number of characteristics with the recently described contact-blocking virus inhibitor (CVI), which is produced by unstimulated cells in culture, and occurs naturally in some body fluids. The new inhibitor, which we have(More)
Blood neutrophil homeostasis is essential for successful host defense against invading pathogens. Circulating neutrophil counts are positively regulated by CXCR2 signaling and negatively regulated by the CXCR4-CXCL12 axis. In particular, G-CSF, a known CXCR2 signaler, and plerixafor, a CXCR4 antagonist, have both been shown to correct neutropenia in human(More)
The four kinds of plant polysaccharides, i.e., pachyman polysaccharides (PPS), Acanthopanax senticosus polysaccharides (ASPS), polysaccharides of tremella fuciformis (TF) and lentinan, have obviously inhibitory action against the animal tumor growth and have been applied to the treatment of cancer. The mechanism was that they could enhance the body immune(More)
It is well established that Ly6Chi monocytes develop from common monocyte progenitors (cMoPs) and reside in the bone marrow (BM) until they are mobilized into the circulation. In our study, we found that BM Ly6Chi monocytes are not a homogenous population, as current data would suggest. Using computational analysis approaches to interpret multidimensional(More)
