An immunosuppressive factor(s) which is heat stable, and dialysable, with a molecular weight less than 10,000 molecular weight, and is not species specific, has been shown to be produced during the in vitro culture of Onchocerca gibsoni microfilariae. The factor(s) is capable of abolishing lymphocyte mitogenesis induced by Con A in bovine lymphocytes and(More)
The objective of this study was to determine how carbon monoxide directly modifies fibrinogen utilizing liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) by examining fibrinogen exposed to carbon monoxide releasing molecule-2 [tricarbonyldichlororuthenium (II) dimer; CORM-2]. Purified fibrinogen was exposed to 0, 25, 50 or 100 μmol/l CORM-2 for 5 min at(More)
Examination was made of the adhesive interaction of L5222 leukemia cells with endothelial cells, collagen and glass and of cell locomotion on endothelium and collagen. Leukaemia cells interacted with the substrate under stationary conditions. The fraction of cells adherent to the substrate was defined next, using the given shearing force caused by the(More)
The early adhesive interaction of living cells with substrates was examined. L1210 cells were allowed to interact with collagen or glass in serum-containing medium (time of cell-substrate interaction, tint, under stationary conditions, was within 2-25 min) or in serum-free medium (tint was 5 s-15 min). The relative number A of cells adhering under(More)
In this study the effect of phloretin (PH) and 6-ketocholestanol (KC) on the permeation of progesterone through porcine skin has been examined. Both PH and KC were incorporated into unilamellar L-alpha-phosphatidylcholine (PC) liposomes at different concentrations (7.5, 15, 30 and 60 mol%). In diffusion experiments with porcine skin, both substances, to a(More)
In the mammalian ovary, aquaporins (AQPs) are thought to be involved in the regulation of fluid transport within the follicular wall and antrum formation. Data concerning the AQPs in the avian ovary is very limited. Therefore, the present study was designed to examine whether the AQP4 is present in the chicken ovary, and if so, what is its distribution in(More)
