PROBLEM We measured interleukin-8 (IL-8) and granulocyte counts in cervical mucus to assess local immunity and parturition. METHOD OF STUDY We detected IL-8 by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and Western blotting. Granulocytes were counted on a slide glass containing mucus from the external cervical os. RESULTS ELISA and Western blotting(More)
By using brush border membrane vesicles prepared from human mid gestational fetal intestine (jejunum), the intestinal L-alanine transport mechanism was studied using a rapid filtration technique. The uptake of L-alanine by the vesicles was osmotically sensitive. This finding indicated that the uptake of L-alanine by the vesicles represented transport into(More)
Using microvillous membrane vesicles prepared from human normal term placenta, placental cotransport system of Na+ and L-alanine was studied using rapid filtration technique. The uptake of L-alanine into microvillous membrane vesicles was Na+ ion electrochemical gradient (extravesicular greater than intravesicular) dependent and showed typical overshoot(More)
On the mechanism underlying the repression of antibody production encountered in the new-born, in this study we used the induction of antibody-producing cells on mitogen stimulation of PWM and SAC, identification of T-cell subsets through two-color FACS and the evaluation of cytokine production of IL-1, IL-2 and BCGF with the following results; 1. The cord(More)
By using brush border membrane vesicles prepared from human mid gestational fetal kidney (cortex), the D-glucose transport mechanism and its developmental pattern was studied by the rapid filtration technique. 1. The transport of D-glucose into brush border membrane vesicles prepared from fetal kidney (18 gestational weeks) did not show a great degree of(More)
