Liposome-associated fimbriae antigens (SEF14 and SEF21) were prepared for intraocular immunization to seek protective efficacy for intestinal infection with Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis. Chickens were immunized intraocularly with the antigens at 8 and 10 weeks of age. Evidence of an IgA and IgG responses were found in the intestinal tract and in(More)
Three kinds of anti-GM1 monoclonal antibodies, AGM-1, -2, and -3, of the IgM class were produced by the immunization of BALB/c mice with ganglioside GM1 inserted into liposomes with Salmonella minnesota R595 lipopolysaccharides and fusion of the spleen cells with a mouse myeloma cell line. The specificities of the monoclonal antibodies obtained were(More)
The usefulness of pH-sensitive fusogenic polymer-(succinylated poly(glycidol)-(SucPG-) modified liposomes as a vaccine carrier in the induction of immune responses was evaluated. Mice were intraperitoneally immunized with ovalbumin- (OVA-) containing SucPG-modified liposomes. After immunization, significant OVA-specific antibodies were detected in the(More)
Induction of intestinal mucosal immune responses against Salmonella enterica serovar enteritidis was studied by immunizing chickens with liposome-associated antigen. An ultrasonicated whole cell extract of the bacteria was used for immunizing antigen. Intraocular immunization induced serum IgA, IgG and IgM responses. Also, significant IgA and IgG antibodies(More)
We have developed poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimers that have poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) grafts at all dendrimer chain ends. To obtain PEG-modified dendrimers with sites for conjugation of anticancer drugs for this study, we prepared PAMAM G4 dendrimers that have a glutamic acid (Glu) residue at every chain end of dendrimer; PEG chains were attached to(More)
Liposomes were applied to the immunization with GgOse4Cer and screening for production of monoclonal antibody to GgOse4Cer. Four-week-old and 22-week-old Balb/c mice were immunized with GgOse4Cer and Salmonella minnesota R595 lipopolysaccharides incorporated liposomes which were composed of dipalmitoyl-phosphatidylcholine and cholesterol. Since antibody(More)
We have established hybridoma cell lines producing monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) directed to N-acetylglucosaminylβ1-3galactose (GlcNAcβ1-3Gal) residue by immunizing BALB/c mice with lactotriaosylceramide (Lc(3)Cer). These obtained hybridoma cells, specific to Lc(3)Cer, were dual immunoglobulin (Ig)-producing cells which secreted both IgM and IgG molecules as(More)
A new monoclonal antibody (NS24) directed to the N-acetylneuraminyl alpha 2-3Gal beta 1-4GlcNAc residue in type II sugar chain of N-acetylneuraminyllactoneotetraosylceramide [sialylparagloboside, IV3(NeuAc)nLc4Cer] was prepared by hybridoma technique. Liposomes composed of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine, cholesterol, IV3(NeuAc)nLc4Cer, and(More)
Previously we established cell lines resistant to Adriamycin and cisplatin to elucidate the mechanisms involved in acquired drug-resistance. In this study, we investigated ganglioside composition in drug-resistant cell lines. The Adriamycin-resistant cell line, SBC-3/ADM100, exhibited a ganglioside composition ratio similar to that of the parent SBC-3(More)
In a previous study, we identified an interesting mutant form of the Tax protein of bovine leukemia virus (BLV), designated D247G. This mutant protein strongly transactivated the long terminal repeat of BLV and was also able to transactivate the cellular proto-oncogene c-fos. This finding suggested that BLV that encode the mutant protein might propagate and(More)
