SUMMARY We have recently developed a new technique to objectively identify erythrocyte cohorts of defined age in mouse blood. The technique (termed double in vivo biotinylation, DIB) involves an initial biotinylation of all erythrocytes in circulation, followed after a few days by a second biotinylation, at a lower density, that labels the biotin-negative(More)
Single wall Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNTs) are hydrophobic and do not disperse in aqueous solvents. Acid functionalization of SWCNTs results in attachment of carboxy and sulfonate groups to carbon atoms and the resulting acid functionalized product (AF-SWCNTs) is negatively charged and disperses easily in water and buffers. In the present study, effect of(More)
Interactions between poly-dispersed acid functionalized single walled carbon nanotubes (AF-SWCNTs) and primary lung epithelial (PLE) cells were studied. Peritoneal macrophages (PMs, known phagocytic cells) were used as positive controls in this study. Recovery of live cells from cultures of PLE cells and PMs was significantly reduced in the presence of(More)
Addition of polydispersed acid functionalised single-walled carbon nanotubes (AF-SWCNTs) significantly suppressed alloimmune cytotoxic T cell (CTL) response generated in a mixed lymphocyte reaction (MLR) between spleen cells from C57BL/6 (H-2(b)) and BALB/c (H-2(d)) mice. AF-SWCNTs treatment also decreased CD69 expression, enhanced apoptotic response in T(More)
