We have previously described the expression of the major nonstructural protein (NS-1) of Aleutian mink disease parvovirus (ADV) in insect cells by using a baculovirus vector (J. Christensen, T. Storgaard, B. Bloch, S. Alexandersen, and B. Aasted, J. Virol. 67:229-238, 1993). To study its biochemical properties, ADV NS-1 was expressed in Sf9 insect cells and(More)
Three monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) were generated against mink leukocytes. One antibody reacted with all T lymphocytes, one with all monocytes and one had platelet reactivity. Under reducing conditions, the T lymphocyte reactive antibody immunoprecipitated 18 kDa, 23 kDa, 25 kDa and 32-40 kDa polypeptides and the platelet reactive antibody 17 kDa, 22 kDa(More)
A method of ultra-performance liquid chromatography combined with electrospray ionization triple quadrupole tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-ESI-MS/MS) has been established for simultaneous determination of major disialoganglioside 3 (GD3) and monosialoganglioside 3 (GM3) in infant formulas and whey protein concentrates. Gangliosides were extracted by using(More)
Polyfluoroalkyl phosphate surfactants (PAPS) are widely used in food contact materials (FCMs) of paper and board and have recently been detected in 57% of investigated materials. Human exposure occurs as PAPS have been measured in blood; however knowledge is lacking on the toxicology of PAPS. The aim of this study was to elucidate the effects of six(More)
Migration of chemicals from packaging materials to foods may lead to human exposure. Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) can be used in technical mixtures (TMs) for use in food packaging of paper and board, and PFAS have been detected in human serum and umbilical cord blood. The specific structures of the PFAS in TMs are often unknown, but polyfluorinated(More)
The B9 assay is known to be a specific and sensitive assay for the estimation of interleukin-6 activity. This assay was found to be compromised by lipopolysaccharide in concentrations > or = 40 ng lipopolysaccharide per ml. The lipopolysaccharide stimulates proliferation of the B9 cell line in a dose-dependent manner both when measuring the proliferation by(More)
A kinetic chromogenic Limulus amebocyte lysate assay for detection of lipopolysaccharide in the picogram range is described. The kinetic Limulus assay was used to detect lipopolysaccharide in a tissue culture media containing interfering low-molecular-weight substances. The interfering substances were removed by ultrafiltration. The recovery of(More)
A flow-injection system is described that incorporates a small column reactor containing two co-immobilized, synergistically operating oxidoreductases, allowing determination of minute amounts of substrates by means of enzyme amplification and subsequent chemiluminescence detection of the hydrogen peroxide generated in the repeated redox cycling. With(More)
Exposure of Bacillus subtilis spores to ethylene oxide (EO) showed correlation between the killing rate and the EO concentration, when the temperature was kept at 55 degrees C and the relative humidity at 100%. The co-efficient of dilution was calculated to be 0.9. The effect of EO on Escherichia coli endotoxin was investigated by the chromogenic Limulus(More)
