In a search for developing new skin test reagents, MPB70 protein antigen was a candidate antigen for the Diagnosis of bovine tuberculosis. First M. bovis BCG genomic DNA was extracted purified and the mpb70 gene was amplified by PCR. The gene was then ligated to an expression vector, PQE. After transformation of the expression E. coil M15 host strain with(More)
Our laboratory established a role for poly(ADP-ribose)polymerase (PARP) in asthma. To increase the clinical significance of our studies, it is imperative to demonstrate that PARP is actually activated in human asthma, to examine whether a PARP inhibitor approved for human testing such as olaparib blocks already-established chronic asthma traits in response(More)
