Agri-environmental policy is at a crossroads. Over the past 20 years, a wide range of policies addressing the environmental implications of agricultural production have been implemented at the Federal level. Those policies have played an important role in reducing soil erosion, protecting and restoring wetlands, and creating wildlife habitat. However,(More)
We have ablated peripheral lymph nodes in sheep and subsequently cannulated the pseudo-afferent lymphatic vessel that arises as a consequence of afferent lymphatic vessels reanastomosing with the former efferent duct. This technique allows the collection of lymph with a cellular composition that resembles true afferent fluid, and in particular, containing(More)
One mechanism by which viral tropism may be controlled is by the expression of a specific virus receptor on the cell surface. This paper reports the identification of a putative cellular receptor for visna virus, the prototype virus of the family Lentiviridae. Using a virus overlay protein blot assay we identified a group of polypeptides of apparent Mr 30K(More)
Hooded Lister/Cbi rats bearing the HSN.TC fibrosarcoma produced a high-titre non-complement-binding IgG antibody, and tests in vitro indicated that the syngeneic antibody was specific for this tumour. About 1.4 X 10(5) antibody molecules were bound per cell, a figure one eighth that for cells treated with a high-titre allo-antiserum. When tumour-bearer(More)
Reactive changes occurring within lymph nodes draining the subcutaneous site of acute infection with maedi-visna virus (MVV) were studied, and the appearance of infected cells correlated with the immune response. Cells infected with virus were detected in the node by cocultivation from day 4 postinfection (p.i.), with maximum numbers being seen between days(More)
Antigen-specific trapping of recirculating lymphocytes in vivo increases the number of immunocompetent cells available for the induction of the immune response. This recruitment of specific cells into lymphoid tissue also results in their selective depletion from the recirculating lymphocyte pool (RLP) x (1). Experimental evidence for this is shown by the(More)
