The effect of purified mouse serum amyloid P-component (SAP) treatment of mouse alveolar macrophages (AMs) on their uptake of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Erdman was investigated, in vitro. SAP (0.5-50.0 micro g/ml), in a concentration-dependent manner, inhibited the M. tuberculosis uptake by the AMs; maximum inhibition (33.43%) occurred at 10.0 micro g/ml… CONTINUE READING
