Enhancement of Cytotoxicity of Active Macrophages by Mycoplasma: Role of Mycoplasma‐Associated Induction of Tumor Necrosis Factor‐α (TNF‐α) in Macrophages
Tumor necrosis factor‐alpha (TNF‐α) ‐inducing activity of several mycoplasmas including Mycoplasma pneumoniae, a causative agent in human respiratory infectious diseases, was investigated. PurifiedExpand

Retrograde transport of nerve growth factor from olfactory bulb to olfactory epithelium
NGF is produced in the olfactory bulb and transported from the bulb to cholinergic neurons in the horizontal limb of the diagonal band. Although the expression of NGF receptors has been reported inExpand

Prevention of insulitis and diabetes in beta 2-microglobulin-deficient non-obese diabetic mice.
beta 2-Microglobulin (beta 2m)-deficient non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice were established by crossing beta 2m-deficient 129/Sv mice with NOD mice, and used to examine the possible involvement of MHCExpand

TrkA expression in mouse olfactory tract following axotomy of olfactory nerves.
The olfactory bulb is one of the brain regions that synthesizes the nerve growth factor (NGF). Functional roles of the bulbar NGF remain to be determined. The aim of the present study was, using anExpand

TrkA expression in olfactory epithelium and bulb during development.
The purpose of the present study was to examine immunohistochemically the expression of high-affinity nerve growth factor receptor (trkA) in the olfactory nervous system of developing mice and ofExpand

Induction of tumoricidal activated macrophages by a liposome-encapsulated glycolipid, trehalose 2,3,6'-trimycolate from Gordona aurantiaca.
A mycolic acid-containing glycolipid, trehalose 2,3,6'-trimycolate, prepared from a non-pathogenic acid-fast bacterium Gordona aurantiaca, was shown to induce strong tumoricidal activity inExpand

Induction of interferon production by natural killer cells by organogermanium compound, Ge132.
Interferon (IFN)-inducing activity of the organogermanium compound Ge132 in human peripheral mononuclear cells was investigated. By using Percoll discontinuous density gradient centrifugation,Expand

[Study of the function of nerve growth factor in the olfactory tract of the mouse].
The aim of this study was to examine the function of nerve growth factor (BGF) in the olfactory tract of mice. Using the mice which had received unilateral olfactory bulbectomy and in whichExpand
