Protein malnutrition may increase susceptibility to gastrointestinal parasitic infections, possibly as a result of impaired intestinal and/or systemic T helper 2 (Th2) effector responses induced by down-regulation of Th2 cytokines and/or up-regulation of Th1 cytokines. To test this hypothesis, female BALB/c mice (n = 18/diet) were fed a control (24%),(More)
Protein-energy malnutrition and gastrointestinal nematode infections widely coexist in developing countries. Evidence is provided demonstrating the profound impact of dietary energy deficiency on immune function. Energy-restricted (ER) mice infected with a gastrointestinal nematode showed impaired lymphocyte proliferation and reduced production of Th2(More)
Embryonic stem (ES) cells are pluripotent stem cells derived from the inner cell mass of the blastocyst. ES cell surface molecules are important for the identification, labeling, sorting, quality control and functional studies of ES cells. Currently, knowledge of ES surface molecules is limited. To identify new surface molecules, we generated a panel of(More)
BACKGROUND AIMS The engraftment of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is reported to promote recovery of renal function in animal models of acute kidney injury (AKI). However, it is unknown whether mesenchymal-like progenitors (MPs) derived from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) can mediate similar therapeutic effects. We investigated the responses of recipient(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been induced to differentiate successfully from human embryonic stem cells (hES-MSCs), which could serve as an in vitro source of MSCs. However, the homing behaviors of such cells and their potential utility for liver regeneration in vivo have not been reported. We investigated factors that influenced early homing and the(More)
Embryonic stem (ES) cells are potent resources for cell therapy, and monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against native cell surface markers of ES cells could be useful tools for therapeutic applications. Here, we report the development of a feasible approach, which could be used in mass production, for experimentally producing rabbit mAbs against native cell(More)
Most forest simulation systems developed for a specific research objectives only use a growth model or simulation technology to simulate the single-granularity forest. It is very time consuming to recalculate growth model for the transformation between different granularity forest scenes. In order to realize the rapid transformation between different(More)
