C-reactive protein (CRP) inhibits neutrophil movement through a p38 MAP kinase pathway. We hypothesized that CRP altered F-actin content and distribution on human neutrophils as a means of inhibiting movement. CRP produced simultaneous increased F-actin and decreased G-actin levels. CRP increased F-actin levels in a concentration-dependent manner once a(More)
Blastomyces dermatitidis is a dimorphic fungus causing localized or systemic infection in areas where the organism is endemic in the central and southeastern United States. In this study, 19 independent isolates of B. dermatitidis from Little Rock, Ark., were grouped into three classes based on restriction fragment length polymorphism patterns in(More)
A spontaneous model of Purkinje cell degeneration in rats is described. Breeding data indicate that the condition is hereditary and not sex linked. The breeding colony has remained free of common murine pathogens, including parvovirus. In older rats with pronounced ataxia, the major lesions consisted of greatly reduced numbers or complete absence of(More)
