Interaction of CD40 with its ligand (CD154) can induce CD40-bearing APCs to express immune stimulatory accessory molecules that facilitate immune recognition. We evaluated whether a plasmid vector encoding CD154 (pCD40L) could influence the immune response to a transgene protein encoded by coinjected plasmid DNA. We found that coinjection of pCD40L in(More)
We examined whether plasmids encoding granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (pGM-CSF) or CD40-ligand (pCD40L) could modify the immune response to antigen encoded by co-injected plasmid DNA. For this we used as antigen Escherichia coli beta galactosidase (beta-gal), encoded by the plasmid pLacZ. We found that intradermal co-injection of pLacZ with(More)
This study focuses on the medium-term effects of soil bioremediation on mortality and reproduction rates of Eisenia fetida (laboratory experiment) and of the tropical earthworm Polypheretima elongata (field experiment). We compared soils restored with the two bioremediation technologies landfarming (LF) and compost-bioremediation (BI) with control soils and(More)
