Microglia are the prime innate immune cells of the central nervous system. They can transit from a (so-called) resting state under homeostatic conditions towards a pro-inflammatory activation state upon homeostatic disturbances. Under neurodegenerative conditions, microglia have been largely perceived as neurotoxic cells. It is now becoming clear that(More)
Proteins antigenically cross-reactive with lectins were sought in the placenta by immunohistochemistry using polyclonal antibodies raised in rabbit against four well-known lectins: Concanavalin A, Wheat germ agglutinin, Ulex europaeus agglutinin, and Phaseolus vulgaris leukoagglutinin (PHA-L), as well as one antibody raised in goat against PHA-L. Even at(More)
The S' subsite specificity of bovine trypsin has been studied by partitioning of o-nitrophenylsu1fenyl-Larginyl-trypsin (formed using o-nitrophenylsulfenyl-L-arginine alkyl esters as acyl donors) between various amino acid-derived nucleophiles and water. The data obtained from spectrophotometric measurements confirmed a preference of trypsin for arginine(More)
