Nowadays, to allow for rapid software evolution, more and more software developers are starting to construct their products from reusable software components. In this approach, the architecture of a system is described as a collection of components along with the interactions among those components. Even though the main building blocks of the system are(More)
Injection of antigen into the annelid worms Lumbricus terrestris (LT) and Eisenia foetida (EF) results in a marked increase of coelomic fluid protein concentration and the formation of a protein which binds the stimulating antigen (3). In this report we show that the increases in total protein concentration after first and second doses of antigen were(More)
Among all mAb submitted to the first porcine CD workshop, based on FCM analyses six mAb could be identified to recognize the porcine CD8 analogue (workshop Nos. 004, 051, 052, 053, 108 and 109). In immunoprecipitation studies three mAb (Nos. 004, 108 and 109) recognized an antigen with an apparent molecular mass of about 35 kDa under reducing conditions and(More)
This thesis proposes a novel approach for a description of a software component's behavior. The behavior is specified by using behavior protocols –a notation similar to regular expressions, which is easy to read and comprehend. Based on an abstract model of communication between software components, the thesis introduces a notion of component behavior and(More)
The origin of immune cells and their products have been studied in the prenatal period in miniature pigs. Macrophages were first detected on day 25, and myelocytes and lymphoid cells by day 28. Membrane antigens SLA-DR and CD45 were found by day 22, membrane molecules MG-7, 8/1, CD1, CD2 and 74-22 by day 28, Gamma/delta T cells were found initially in(More)
Amongst the monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) submitted to the first porcine CD workshop, two mAbs (workshop numbers 055 and 120) could be identified to recognize the porcine CD6 analogue. Both mAbs seemed to be highly T-cell specific and showed neither reactivity with cells of the myeloic lineage nor with B lymphocytes. The observed molecular mass of the(More)
As result of the First International Swine CD Workshop, four monoclonal antibodies (mAb) (#002, 054, 118, and 127) clustered closely to the internal standard anti-porcine CD4 mAb, 74-12-4. To further characterize the relationship between these mAb, they were used in flow cytometry to inhibit binding of 74-12-4 to porcine lymphocytes. mAb #002 (74-12-4) and(More)
As result of the First International Swine CD Workshop, six monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) (numbers 014, 023, 024, 057, 128, and 130) clustered closely to the internal standard anti-porcine CD2 mAb, MSA4. Despite the close clustering, the cluster was split into two subgroups. To further characterize the relationship between these mAbs, they were used in flow(More)
Fifty-four mAb preselected in the first round of the first porcine CD workshop for their possible reactivity with T-lymphocyte specific antigens and/or activation antigens were further analysed in a second round. PBMC, thymocytes and nylon-wool purified T lymphocytes derived from peripheral blood, mesenteric lymph nodes and spleen served as target cells for(More)
