Effect of polychlorinated biphenyls on the immune responses of rhesus monkeys and mice.
Abstract Female rhesus monkeys were fed either normal chow or chow containing 2.5 or 5.0 ppm of Aroclor 1248 (PCB). After 6 months, the PCB-fed monkeys developed chloracne, alopecia, and facial… Expand
Production of antibody against ochratoxin A.
Antibody against ochratoxin A was obtained after repeated injection of different protein-ochratoxin A conjugates to rabbits. Among many protein-ochratoxin conjugates tested, bovine serum… Expand
Oil and related toxicant effects on mallard immune defenses.
A crude oil, a petroleum distillate, and chemically dispersed oil were tested for their effects on resistance to bacterial infection and the immune response in waterfowl. Sublethal oral doses for… Expand
Isolation and Characterization of a Bacteriocin from a Homofermentative Lactobacillus
Nearly 100 isolates of Lactobacillus were obtained from human and animal sources. Screening tests with the isolates revealed seven possible bacteriocinogenic strains and 26 strains sensitive to one… Expand
The effect of perinatal exposure to tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin on the immune response of young mice.
The immunocompetence of 5 week old offspring from mice fed control chow or chow containing 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) was evaluated. The 5 ppb maternal feeding level was the only… Expand
Toxicant-disease-environment interactions associated with suppression of immune system, growth, and reproduction.
The effects of marginal malnourishment , infections, and environmental chemicals on growth and reproductive success in Swiss-Webster white mice and wild deer mice were studied with fractional… Expand
Perinatal PCB exposure and its effect on the immune system of young rabbits.
Antibody mediated and cell mediated immune functions of offspring from New Zealand white rabbits fed control chow or chow containing 10, 100 or 250 ppm of Aroclor 1248 (PCB) were assessed. Only those… Expand

Abstract Oil-induced and uninduced mouse macrophages were obtained from peritoneal washings, cultured in vitro, and prepared for observation by a technique not involving chemical fixation. Results… Expand
Characterization of a Staphylococcus aureus bacteriocin.
The bacteriocin produced by a strain of Staphylococcus aureus has been isolated and designated staphylococcin (414), and a study was made of its chemical, physical, and biological properties. The… Expand
Production and Mode of Action of Lactocin 27: Bacteriocin from a Homofermentative Lactobacillus
Lactobacillus helveticus strain LP27 produced a bacteriocin, lactocin 27, in dialyzable and nondialyzable forms. No evidence was obtained to indicate that lactocin 27 was under the control of… Expand
