In cattle, bovine leukocyte antigens (BoLAs) have been extensively used as markers for bovine diseases and immunological traits. Here, we developed a rapid, high-resolution sequence-based typing (SBT) system for BoLA-DQA1. We amplified 355 bp of BoLA-DQA1 by fully nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using the newly constructed primers and then performed(More)
We sequenced the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II DQA1 gene in 352 Japanese cattle (95 Japanese Black, 91 Holstein, 102 Japanese Shorthorn and 64 Jersey cattle) using a new sequence-based typing method. In total, 19 bovine MHC (BoLA)-DQA1 alleles, of which two were novel alleles, were detected. The Holstein, Jersey, Japanese Shorthorn and(More)
Membrane expression of the CD24 molecule on activated T lymphocytes is not elucidated fully. We previously described the intracellular and cell-surface expression of the CD24 sialic acid-dependent epitope(s) on phytohemagglutinin-activated peripheral blood mononuclear cells. However, the CD24 core protein was not detected previously on human T cells. This(More)
An excess of signal-like events above the expected background, corresponding to approximately three standard deviations, was observed in the search for the standard model Higgs boson at LEP in 2000. This excess is consistent with the existence of a Higgs boson with mass 115 GeV/c 2. Relevant consistency and robustness checks, which further support the(More)
The ZZ production cross section is measured from a data sample corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of 452 pb−1, collected by the ALEPH experiment at LEP at centre-of-mass energies from 192 to 209 GeV. Individual cross sections, extracted at six centre-of-mass energies, are found to be in agreement with Standard Model calculations. The results are(More)
Fifteen reaction products of isothiocyanates with cysteine, seven reaction products of isothiocyanates with 2,3-dimercapto-1-propanol, and four reaction products of isothiocyanates with sulfanilamide were synthesized. Their antimicrobial activity against pathogenic plant microorganisms was investigated.
An excess of signal-like events above the expected background, corresponding to approximately three standard deviations, was observed in the search for the standard model Higgs boson at LEP in 2000. This excess is consistent with the existence of a 115 GeV/c Higgs particle. The LEP run in 2000 at centre-of-mass energies up to 209 GeV allowed the standard(More)
Searches for scalar top, scalar bottom and degenerate scalar quarks have been performed with data collected with the ALEPH detector at LEP. The data sample consists of 57 pb taken at √ s = 181–184 GeV. No evidence for scalar top, scalar bottom or degenerate scalar quarks was found in the channels t̃ → cχ, t̃ → blν̃, b̃ → bχ, and q̃ → qχ. From the channel t̃(More)
