Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activity was measured in the media of cultured mouse peritoneal macrophages that were isolated after the intraperitoneal injection of inflammatory agents in order to yield a variety of states of activation. Fully activated macrophages obtained from Corynebacterium parvum-injected mice secreted very low levels of LPL when compared to(More)
Adhesion ofB lymphocytes within the different compartments of secondary lymphoid organs is essential for the function of the humoral immune response. It is not currently known how the temporary immobilization orb cells in distinct areas of this complex microenvironment is regulated. The present study aimed at defining B cell antigens that initiate binding(More)
