Role of macrophages in nephrolithiasis in rats: an analysis of the renal interstitium.
Interstitial calcium oxalate (CaOx) crystals can be found in primary oxalosis and in secondary hyperoxaluria. In a rat model for nephrolithiasis, we investigated whether such crystals can be removedExpand

Ultrastructural localization of the circulating anodic antigen in the digestive tract of Schistosoma mansoni using monoclonal antibodies in an immunogold labeling procedure.
The purpose of this study was to determine the ultrastructural localization of a major schistosome circulating antigen-the circulating anodic antigen (CAA)-in the digestive tract of various lifeExpand

Calcium oxalate nephrolithiasis: effect of renal crystal deposition on the cellular composition of the renal interstitium.
Urinary calcium oxalate (CaOx) crystals and crystal agglomerates are normally harmlessly excreted, but in nephrolithiasis they are retained by tubular epithelial cells and shifted into the renalExpand

Ultrastructural localization of bronchial antileukoprotease in central and peripheral human airways by a gold-labeling technique using monoclonal antibodies.
The present report describes the ultrastructural localization of bronchial antileukoprotease (ALP) in human central and peripheral airways by using polyclonal as well as monoclonal ALP-specificExpand

Characterization of the low-density-lipoprotein-receptor-independent interaction of beta-very-low-density lipoprotein with rat and human parenchymal liver cells in vitro.
beta-Migrating very-low-density lipoprotein (beta-VLDL) is a cholesteryl-ester-enriched lipoprotein which under normal conditions is rapidly cleared by parenchymal liver cells. In this study theExpand

Three monoclonal antibodies with specific binding activity to the excretory system of Schistosoma mansoni: an immunoelectron microscopic study using the gold labeling technique.
This study describes three monoclonal antibodies against the excretory system of Schistosoma mansoni. Immunofluorescence revealed antigens forming part of the excretory system of cercariae, adultExpand

Cytokine production induced by binding and processing of calcium oxalate crystals in cultured macrophages.
Deposition of calcium oxalate (CaOx) crystals in the renal interstitium is common in humans with primary oxalosis and secondary hyperoxaluria, as well as in kidneys of rats with CaOx nephrolithiasis.Expand

Experimental nephrolithiasis in rats: the effect of ethylene glycol and vitamin D3 on the induction of renal calcium oxalate crystals.
Using ethylene glycol (EG) and vitamin D3 as crystal-inducing diet (CID) in rats, we investigated the effect of the dosage of EG on the generation of chronic calcium oxalate (CaOx) nephrolithiasis.Expand

Etiology of calcium oxalate nephrolithiasis in rats. I. Can this be a model for human stone formation?
Crystal retention is studied in a rat-model system as a possible mechanism for the etiology of human nephrolithiasis. A crystal-inducing diet (CID) of ethylene glycol plus NH4Cl in theirExpand
