Use of synthetic peptides to map the antigenic determinants of glycoprotein D of herpes simplex virus
The predictive algorithm Surfaceplot was used to examine glycoprotein D of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) for amino acid residues with a high probability of being exposed on the molecular surface to suggest the advantages of Surfaceplot in mapping antigenic determinants in proteins.
Cytokine activity in bovine mammary gland secretions during the periparturient period.
Results from Western blots indicated that the antiviral activity observed in prepartum secretions may be due to tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and interferons (IFN) were not detected in the colostrum samples.
Immunomodulatory Effects of Oat β‐Glucan Administered Intragastrically or Parenterally on Mice Infected with Eimeria vermiformis
OβG appeared to up‐regulate immune mechanisms and provide enhanced resistance against eimerian coccidiosis in mice and reduce fecal oocyst shedding by multiple administrations.
Anti‐Wrinkle Therapy: Significant New Findings in the Non‐Invasive Cosmetic Treatment of Skin Wrinkles with Beta‐Glucan
The results showed that beta-glucan, despite its large molecular size, deeply penetrated the skin into the epidermis and dermis, and supports the use of oat beta- glucan in the care and maintenance of healthy skin and the cosmetic treatment of the signs of aging.
Concentration of dopamine analogs in the adrenal medulla.
Seven labeled sulfonanilide analogs of dipamine were synthesized and their tissue distribution in rats were determined as a function of time, showing significant uptake and retention in the rat adrenal and further evaluation of NP-27 in dogs indicated selective uptake in the adrenal medulla.
