Bovine monoclonal anti-Id mimicking a neutralizing epitope of bovine herpesvirus-1 (BHV-1) glycoprotein gI were developed. An epitope present on the 74K subunit of gI identified by a murine mAb 1E11 was selected for this study. Bovine lymphocytes from the prefemoral lymph node of a heifer immunized with mAb 1E11 were fused with SP-2/0, a nonsecreting murine(More)
Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules present endogenously derived viral peptides to CD8+ cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CTLs). The objective of this study was to identify the H-2Dd- and H-2Kd-restricted CTL epitopes of bovine herpesvirus 1 (BHV-1), based on the allele-specific peptide motifs (ASPMs) of the above class I molecules. Nine(More)
The field of regenerative medicine has witnessed significant advances that can pave the way to creating de novo organs. Organoids of brain, heart, intestine, liver, lung and also kidney have been developed by directed differentiation of pluripotent stem cells. While the success in producing tissue-specific units and organoids has been remarkable, the(More)
Native extracellular matrix (ECM) provides scaffolds for tissue engineering with natural architecture and biochemical composition. Maintaining the native ECM in decellularized tissues provides cues for cells, which promote their tissue specific arrangement and function. Several approaches have been used to decellularize ECM from the kidney in order to(More)
Bovine immunoglobulin isotype-specific murine monoclonal antibodies were used in sandwich radioimmunoassays to detect and quantitate bovine IgG1, IgG2, IgM, and IgA in culture fluids. The concentrations of bovine immunoglobulins in unknown samples were extrapolated from standard curves generated with bovine monoclonal immunoglobulins. The lowest detection(More)
The potential of anti-idiotypic antibodies (anti-ids) as immunogens against transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) was tested in a heterologous system. A month-old pig was immunized with a neutralizing murine monoclonal antibody (MAb, 5A5) of the IgG2a isotype, specific for the E2 glycoprotein of TGEV. The anti-ids were isolated from the serum of the(More)
