The induction of CL in bovine polymorphonuclear granulocytes (PMN) by bovine herpes virus Type I was studied. Virus and virus-infected bovine embryonic lung cells were unable to stimulate cellular light emission. When virus and infected cells were incubated in the presence of immune serum, a burst of CL was induced in PMN. The mechanism of CL induction was dependent on the antibody Fc portion, as F(ab')2 fragments bound to antigen were unable to stimulate CL. These observations suggest that PMN… CONTINUE READING
