SUMMARY Short-term hepatic injury was produced in rats by single i.p. injections of Ar-dimethylnitrosoamine, carbon tetrachloride, and cadmium sulfate, or by partial hepatectomy. In all cases, the animals responded with varying serum titers of embryonic a.?-glycoprotein which could be detected as early as 24 hours after the treatment. Antigen LA, another(More)
We have recently shown that lymphocyte apoptosis induced by dexamethasone or superantigens is accompanied by reduction of mitochondrial transmembrane potential (delta psi m) which precedes nuclear DNA fragmentation. Here, we demonstrate that fluorochromes such as 3,3' dihexyloxacarbocyanine iodide [DiOC6(3)] which measure delta psi m, or fluorochromes such(More)
AFP or SA immobilized on nitrocellulose membranes (AFP-NC or SA-NC) were used as affinity matrices to purify cell membrane proteins with affinity for AFP (AFP-BP) and for SA (SA-BP) from membrane-enriched extracts of Raji cells (a B-lymphoma cell line), as well as for normal resting and activated peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBMC). SDS-PAGE and ligand(More)
The possible differences in lipid composition between human immunodeficiency virus- (HIV) infected and uninfected PHA-activated human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) have been studied. The total fatty acid composition was similar, except for the proportion of arachidonic acid, that was slightly higher in infected than in noninfected cells. No(More)
BACKGROUND This review summarizes the different species of dermatophytes isolates in our laboratory between 1991 and 1995. We describe the clinical forms and establish the distribution over this period of time. METHODS Retrospective survey of samples from outpatients of the Dermatology Service in Miguel Servet Hospital where mycologic cultures are(More)
The kinetics of iodinated human alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) binding and uptake by 2 human neoplastic lymphoid cell lines (CEM and RAJI) have been studied. Three saturation plateaus were obtained by incubating CEM and RAJI cells at 4 degrees C with 125I-AFP at different concentrations. Scatchard analysis suggested the presence of 3 types of receptor site with(More)
