Although a role for DC as pulmonary antigen-presenting cell (APC) has been suggested, little is currently known concerning how these cells respond to inhaled antigens in vivo. Hen-egg(More)
S-sulfo-cysteine (SSC) is an agonist of glutamate receptors which could be involved in cysteine-induced neurotoxicity. Here we analyzed SSC by HPLC and demonstrated that the concentration of SSC in cortex of cysteine-injected rats increased to 1.4 microM, about four times the value of control rats. The neurotoxic effect of SSC was evaluated in slice(More)
