We have previously documented alterations in endogenous surfactant after lung transplantation and improved graft function in some dogs after instillation of bovine lipid extract surfactant (bLES) into the recipient. To determine the effect of bLES delivery method and timing of treatment on physiologic response and surfactant recovery, 21 canine left lung(More)
Bovine leukaemia virus (BLV) is known to be the aetiological agent of enzootic bovine lymphosarcoma. As the mechanism of tumour induction is unknown, we analysed the viral proteins expressed in cultured bovine cells of different origin, i.e. from enzootic or sporadic tumourous tissues, normal cells infected or not with BLV, and the reference FLK-BLV cells.(More)
This Review introduces this special issue of ChemSusChem dedicated to CO(2) recycling. Its aim is to offer an up-to-date overview of CO(2) chemical utilization (inorganic mineralization, organic carboxylation, reduction reactions, and biochemical conversion), as a continuation and extension of earlier books and reviews on this topic, but with a specific(More)
BACKGROUND Exogenous surfactant therapy of lung donors improves the preservation of normal canine grafts. The current study was designed to determine whether exogenous surfactant can mitigate the damage in lung grafts induced by mechanical ventilation before procurement. METHODS AND RESULTS Five donor dogs were subjected to 8 hours of mechanical(More)
The effect of dexamethasone (DXM) on the replication and titration assays of B-ecotropic radiation leukemia virus (RadLV-Rs) isolates was examined. The drug was shown to enhance in vitro virus release by otherwise low producer permissive cells. DXM also stimulated infectivity and focus formation in murine S+L--permissive cells and shortened the(More)
Two leukemogenic viral populations were derived from a radiation leukemia virus of the C57BL mouse. One (FB), in which only B-tropic virus could be detected, was obtained in vivo by serial passage of cell-free extract in newborn rats. The second (3C), a complex containing at least B-tropic and xenotropic viruses, was produced in vitro by a permanent cell(More)
This report describes pulse-chase experiments performed with cells infected with tumour-derived bovine leukaemia virus (BLV) and using purified gamma-globulins directed against BLV structural proteins, namely gp51, p24, p15 and p12. A gpr72 was found to be the precursor of the gp51 with a gpr70 intermediate. The p12 was shown to be derived from a pr40 with(More)
