Celiac disease (CD) is a gluten-responsive, chronic inflammatory enteropathy. IL-1 cytokine family members IL-1β and IL-18 have been associated with the inflammatory conditions in CD patients. However, the mechanisms of IL-1 molecule activation in CD have not yet been elucidated. We show in this study that peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and(More)
Important changes take place in the cortical cytoplasm of human oocytes in connection with their maturation. Contacts between granulosa cell processes and the oocyte are interrupted, the perivitelline space develops, invaded by oocyte long microvilli. Fine flocculent material is deposited in the perivitelline space. As for oocyte cell organelles, changes(More)
Location of thiamine pyrophosphatase activity as a marker of the Golgi apparatus was studied ultracytochemically in mouse oocytes with germinal vesicle (OGV), oocytes at metaphase I (OMI) and oocytes at metaphase II (OMII), and further in cells of the respective cumulus oophorus serving as comparative objects. TPPase activity in cumulus oophorus cells and(More)
