Lipoteichoic acid (LTA) is a cell surface glycoconjugate of gram-positive bacteria and is reported to activate the innate immune system. We previously reported that purified LTA obtained from Enterococcus hirae has no immunostimulating activity, but a subfraction (Eh-AF) in an LTA fraction possesses activity. In this study, we established a mouse monoclonal(More)
Multinucleated cell formation is crucial for osteoclastogenesis, and the expression of nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT)2 (NFATc1) is essential for this process. We previously found, using mouse RAW264 cells, that culture at high cell density blocked progression to the multinucleated cell stage induced by stimulation with receptor activator of(More)
