Erythrocyte (RBC)-bound IgG values (IgG concentration, ng/ml) were examined in 8 Babesia gibsoni-infected and 10 healthy dogs by a competitive enzyme immunoassay. Five dogs with clinical B. gibsoni infection, manifesting severe anemia, were observed to have increased RBC-bound IgG values compared to dogs with subclinical B. gibsoni infection and healthy(More)
Serum anti-erythrocyte membrane (RBCm) antibodies and anti-RBCm antibodies eluted from erythrocytes of Babesia gibsoni-infected dogs were examined for immunologic characteristics by immunoblotting analysis. Serum anti-RBCm antibodies of the dogs before and after the experimental inoculation with parasitized erythrocytes reacted with cytoskeletal (bands 1,(More)
Reactivity of anti-erythrocyte membrane (RBCm) antibody in sera of B. gibosni-infected dogs on native RBCm and erythrocyte surface (RBCs) was examined using an enzyme linked immunosorbent assay. Anti-RBCm antibody attached to native RBCm and the surface of erythrocytes (RBC) treated with phenylhydrazine or neuraminidase, but not to the surface of(More)
The maximum plasma radioactivity levels of tritium (3H)-labeled cephaeline, (24.3, 28.7 and 40.6 ng eq./mL) were reached at 2.00-3.33 hours following oral dosing of ipecac syrup. The maximum plasma radioactivity levels of3H-emetine (2.71, 6.47 and 9.62 ng eq./mL) were reached at 1.08–2.33 hours following ipecac syrup administration. The Cmax values(More)
The anthelmintic efficacy of milbemycin oxime against dog whipworm, Trichuris vulpis, was evaluated. A total of 21 T. vulpis positive dogs were divided into 3 groups, one (5 dogs) for control and the other two (8 dogs each) for anthelmintic treatment with oral administration of milbemycin oxime.
Absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of [125I]-rhIL-11 (recombinant human interleukin-11) after subcutaneous administration in rats were investigated. After a single administration, the concentration of radioactivity in the tissues was 2–6-fold higher in the liver and kidneys, and slightly higher in the gastrointestinal tract as compared to(More)
Placental transfer and excretion into milk of [125I]-rhIL-11 (recombinant human interleukin-11) after subcutaneous administration in female rats were investigated. After administration of [125I]-rhIL-11 to rats on the 14th day of gestation, radioactivity in the kidney was the highest among excised tissues, being 3 times higher than that in the plasma at 1.5(More)
Cysteine-conjugate ,3-lyase (EC 4.4.1.13) was purified about 880-fold from human liver obtained post mortem. The purification procedure included (NH4)2S04 precipitation, chromatography on DEAE-cellulose and hydroxyapatite, gel filtration on Sephadex G-200, and chromatofocusing. The purified enzyme cleaves the C-S bond of several S-aryl-L-cysteines to yield(More)
An enzyme responsible for the carbon-sulfur bond cleavage of various S-aryl, S-aralkyl, and S-alkyl cysteines has been purified about 270-fold from Fusobacterium varium. Incubation of a cysteine conjugate of p-bromobenzene with the enzyme yielded equimolar amounts of p-bromobenzenethiol, pyruvic acid, and ammonia, indicating that the carbon-sulfur bond(More)
