Acquired tolerance for a quaternary ammonium compound produced a tolerance for a similar compound. Tolerance was associated with the structure and the extent of adsorption of the compound. Morphological changes and resistance to disruption by pressure and by sonic treatment accompanied the development of tolerance. An otherwise weakened culture evolved with(More)
We have demonstrated that T lymphocytes from the spleens of adult guinea pigs sensitized to group A streptococcal antigens are cytotoxic for cultured fetal guinea pig heart cells. Lymphocyte cytotoxicity, measured by 51Cr release from target cells, was stimulated by sensitization in vivo with group A whole cells, cell walls, and purified protoplast(More)
The streptococcal group E cell wall polysaccharide antigen was extracted from strain K129 cells with hot trichloroacetic acid and purified. It contained rhamnose and glucose in a 2:1 molar ratio, 2% protein, 1% phosphorus, and was free of muramic acid and glycerol. No type polysaccharide antigen was present. The reaction of specific group E rabbit antiserum(More)
5'-nucleotidase activity, arachidonate metabolism and adenosine uptake were measured in P388 murine leukaemia cells and in a subline resistant to doxorubicin. These membranes related activities were found to be increased in the doxorubicin resistant cell line, compared to the drug sensitive cells. It is suggested that these differences do not play a role in(More)
The group R streptococcal group antigen has been shown to be a polysaccharide located at the surface of the cell wall of the organism. The antigen was extracted from cell walls in 0.05 n HCl or 5% trichloracetic acid at 100 C, from whole cells at room temperature in 0.85% NaCl or 0.1 m acetate (pH 5.0), and by sonic oscillation. The antigen is largely(More)
The activities of three purine pathway enzymes--adenosine deaminase (ADA), 5'-nucleotidase (5'N) and purine nucleoside phosphorylase (PNP)--were examined in the circulating malignant cells (Sezary cells) of eight patients with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). Cell lines derived from two other patients with CTCL were also studied. These were compared with(More)
