Monoclonal antibodies to CD44 and their influence on hyaluronan recognition
Detailed analysis of specificity of 25 mAbs adds to the understanding of functional domains within CD44 and requirements for antibodies to influence recognition of one ligand. Expand
Specific detection of circulating surface/secreted glycoproteins of viable cysticerci in Taenia saginata cysticercosis
Parasite derived glycoprotein could be detected in serum from about 4–5 weeks post‐infection onwards and was associated with a current infection, as drug treatment of infected cattle to kill the cysticerci resulted in the disappearance of these components from the circulation, while the titre of anti‐parasite antibody remained high. Expand
Serum antigen detection in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of neurocysticercosis patients.
The sensitivity of the assay with serum samples, and its ability to identify successfully treated patients, make this monoclonal antibody-based ELISA the test of choice for the follow-up of NCC cases. Expand
Insights into the molecular basis of the NOD2 signalling pathway
The core interactions of N OD2 with protein factors that influence and modulate the signal transduction pathways involved in NOD2 signalling are addressed, providing a comprehensive resource targeted at understanding the complexities of NOD1 signalling. Expand
A specific antigen-detection ELISA for the diagnosis of human neurocysticercosis. The Cysticercosis Working Group in Peru.
Levels of parasite antigen were significantly positively correlated with the number of live cysts detected by tomography and were also proportional to the number and intensity of antibody reactions recognized by the immunoblot diagnostic test. Expand
Human neurocysticercosis: comparison of enzyme immunoassay capture techniques based on monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies for the detection of parasite products in cerebrospinal fluid.
Results with the anti-antigen B system support the proposal that products of low immunogenicity are the most appropriate targets for the serological detection of the parasite. Expand
Changing proteins on the surface of a parasitic nematode
The surface of the cuticle of the parasitic nematode Trichinella spiralis expresses protein molecules which change qualitatively following the moulting process, and quantitatively during growth of the worms within one stage. Expand
Preparation and properties of a cytotoxic monoclonal rat anti-mouse Thy-1 antibody.
A hybrid cell line secreting a cytotoxic rat IgM antibody with specificity for both the 1 and 2 alleles of mouse Thy-1 was selected. The fusion was between rat spleen cells immunised to SBA spleenExpand
Candidate for immunoglobulin D present on murine B lymphocytes
The identification of an immunoglobulin present on the surface of mouse splenic lymphocytes which is not IgM, but which has the predicted characteristics of IgD is presented. Expand
Ontogeny of Ia and IgD on IgM-bearing B lymphocytes in mice
Ia was also detected on IgM and IgG plasma cells in vitro suggesting that lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated B cells by may express Ia antigens, induced by LPS, or appearing as part of normal differentiation. Expand
