When schizont-infected erythrocytes were incubated with N-acetyl glucosamine coupled to bovine serum albumin (GluNAc-BSA), the number of new ring forms which appeared several hours later was reduced and the number of abnormal and unruptured schizont-infected erythrocytes was increased compared with controls, indicating that GluNAc-BSA prevents invasion by a(More)
Seven murine monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) directed against O-side-chain determinants of the K1-encapsulated Bortolussi strain of Escherichia coli (O18:K1:H7) were evaluated for their in vitro and in vivo activities. All the MAbs reacted well in Western blots against E. coli O18 lipopolysaccharide antigens. Two MAbs of the immunoglobulin G (IgG) class(More)
Mouse monoclonal antibodies that react with O-side chain specific, O-side chain cross-reactive, and core P. aeruginosa lipopolysaccharide determinants have been isolated. The monoclonals directed at O-side chain determinants are generally opsonophagocytic with human neutrophils and human complement. They also protect mice from intraperitoneal and(More)
1. Monoclonal antibodies were raised against squid hepatopancreas organophosphorous acid (OPA) anhydrolase (EC 3.1.8.2) and were used to study structural similarities with OPA anhydrolases isolated from different sources. 2. Common epitopes were identified in OPA anhydrolases with diverse origins, and with different substrate specificities. 3. Epitopes(More)
The Phadebact Gonococcus Test (Pharmacia Diagnostics, Piscataway, N.J.), a coagglutination technique, was compared with the rapid fermentation method of Kellogg and Turner (D. S. Kellogg, Jr., and E. M. Turner, Appl. Microbiol. 25: 550--552, 1973). A total of 93 organisms isolated on Martin-Lewis media were determined to be Neisseria gonorrhoeae based on(More)
