Balance epithelia in birds closely resemble their mammalian counterparts, but their cells turnover rapidly and they quickly regenerate hair cells, leading to functional recovery from damage that would be permanent for a mammal. We isolated and cultured sheets of the chicken's utricular epithelium in bromo-deoxyuridine and specific inhibitors of different(More)
It has been shown that N-linked high mannose type oligosaccharides competitively inhibits attachment to and infectivity of chlamydiae in HeLa cells. To further study whether mannose moieties are involved in the infectivity of chlamydiae, the susceptibility of mannose-receptor negative J774A and positive J774E mouse macrophages to Chlamydia trachomatis,(More)
