New approach to study of T cellular immunity development: parallel investigation of lymphoid organ formation and changes in immune proteasome amount in rat early ontogenesis.

The expression pattern and distribution of proteasome immune subunits LMP7 and LMP2 in the developing rat spleen and liver as well as the periarterial lymphoid sheath formation were investigated. LMP7 and LMP2 were detected by immunoblotting in the spleen on the 21st embryonic day and during the first postnatal days in equal amounts. Their levels increased… CONTINUE READING
