The elderly are characterized by mucosal immunosenescence and high rates of morbidity and mortality associated with infectious diseases of the intestinal tract. Little is known about how the differentiation of immunoglobulin A (IgA) plasma cells in Peyer's patches (PPs) and their subsequent homing to the small intestinal lamina propria (LP) is affected by(More)
Dorsal root ganglion neurons normally contain a 14,500 molecular weight lactose-binding lectin, designated L-14. Although this lectin is developmentally regulated, and is localized to specific neurons as well as to specific areas of the rat spinal cord, its function in the nervous system is not known. In an effort to study the possible role of this lectin(More)
An endogenous galactoside-binding lectin with subunit molecular weight of 43,000-45,000, previously detected in unfertilized eggs of Xenopus laevis, persists at high levels in embryos through gastrulation. During embryonic development the lectin is found in cytoplasmic vesicles, and then is secreted into extracellular matrix which is prominent around the(More)
