The relationship of common saprophytic and pathogenic fungi to the Forssman and other antigens of the sheep erythrocyte
TLDR
Culture filtrates and mats from 20 different species of fungi cultured on Sabouraud dextrose broth and asparagine synthetic medium were examined for the presence of Forssman activity utilizing a hemolysis inhibition test, and the importance of the sheep erythrocyte as a heterogenetic antigen is discussed.

Immunological cross-reactivity between a glycoprotein isolated from Trichophyton mentagrophytes and human isoantigen A.

  • The Journal of investigative dermatology

TLDR
A glycoprotein isolated from the cell wall of Trichophyton mentagrophytes was assessed for its cross-reaction with human blood group isoantigens and was found by indirect immunofluorescence to be located in the mycelial cell wall. Expand
Association of ABO blood group and outcome of coccidioidal infection.
TLDR
A significant association of blood group B and dissemination is demonstrated in the present study of 105 patients, and may define subgroups at particularly high risk following coccidioidal infection. Expand
Biosynthesis of A, H, and Lewis blood group determinants in Fasciola hepatica.
TLDR
The detection in Fasciola hepatica of 3-alpha-N-acetyl-D-galactosaminyl-transferase, 2 and 4 alpha-L-fucosyltransferases that correspond to A, H, and Lewis human blood group gene-specified enzymes indicates the ability of F. hepaticA to synthesize A,H, andLewis blood group antigens that were recently observed in the liver fluke. Expand
Pemphigus and other diseases. Results of indirect intercellular immunofluorescence.
TLDR
The intercellular pattern of fluorescence was demonstrated in 24 of 75 patients with diseases other than pemphigus and when the anti-B isohemagglutinin titer was reduced or abolished, after absorption with B substance, the inter cellular pattern was reduced considerably or abolished. Expand
Candida granuloma. Studies of host-parasite relationships.
TLDR
The concept of specific immunologic unresponsiveness is proposed to explain the patient's extreme susceptibility to the development of infection with Calbicans. Expand
Effect of Cultural Environment on the Blood Group Activity of Microorganisms
Blood group activity was proven to be a property of the bacterium per se which possesses it, although such activity was influenced by the cultural environment of the organism. High concentrations ofExpand
Preliminary characterization of the hemolysin of Rhizopus nigricans
TLDR
The cumulative findings suggest that the active hemolytic substance is a lipid perhaps attached to a protein in Rhizopus nigricans cultured for two weeks in modified Sabouraud broth. Expand
Serosurvey of Leptospira agglutinins among railway employees in the national railway compartments of Bologna and Venice
TLDR
The influence of different kinds of railway work and that of supposed risk factors, such as hobbies and housing conditions, together with the influence of the ABO blood groups on the distribution of Leptospira agglutinins, are discussed. Expand
The role of ABO blood groups and secretor status in host defences.
  • C. Blackwell
  • Biology, Medicine
  • FEMS microbiology immunology
  • 1989
TLDR
Epidemiological studies on the associations between ABO blood group antigens, secretor status and susceptibility to infectious agents are summarized and several hypotheses are proposed to explain the host-parasite interactions underlying the epidemiological observations. Expand

Changes in the specificity of blood-group mucopolysaccharides induced by enzymes from Trichomonas foetus.
TLDR
The capacity to develop Lea specificity appears to be related to the Lewis blood-group phenotype of the individual from whom the H substance is derived, and it has been shown that enzymic destruction of H serological properties results in certain instances in a considerable increase in the reactivity of the H Substance with Lewis anti-Lea sera. Expand
BLOOD GROUP ACTIVITY OF GRAM-NEGATIVE BACTERIA
TLDR
Distribution of blood group A, B, and H(O) activities among 282 aerobic Gram-negative bacteria, many isolated from the blood of patients, has been studied and the bearing of these findings on the origin of human anti-A and anti-B isoantibodies has been mentioned. Expand
EFFECTS OF CULTURAL CONDITIONS ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF ANTIGENS BY COCCIDIOIDES IMMITIS. II. COMPLEMENT FIXATION AND IMMUNODIFFUSION STUDIES WITH HUMAN SERUM.
TLDR
The antigens employed in the previous investigation were further examined in immunodiffusion and complement fixation tests using human antiserum and had been stored at —20°C for 3 months prior to use in this study. Expand
The Relation of the Blood Group Specific Substance a to the Type Specific Carbohydrate of Pneumococcus Type I
In a previous communication' it has been reported that a preparation of the specific carbohydrate of Pneumococcus type I in its genuine acetylated form displayed a marked cross-reactivity withExpand
Principles of Blood Group Serology and Nomenclature: A Critical Review
TLDR
The requirements for a suitable terminology for the A‐B‐O groups are demonstrated, and it is pointed out that the same principles have universal applicability not only to other blood group systems in man, but also to studies on the blood groups of infra‐human species, and antigens of soluble proteins, bacteria and viruses. Expand
Inhibition of blood-group agglutinins by substances occurring in plants.
TLDR
Nondialyzable substances capable of inhibiting anti-A, anti-B and anti-H(O) specific blood-group agglutinins have been found in higher and lower plants and indicate that at least those substances from plants which are disproportional in their action bear an immunologic relationship to mammalian blood-groups mucoids.

Antigen-Antibody Reactions in Helminth Infections
TLDR
Class nematoda, class trematoda—schistosm—and class cestoda in relation to antigen-antibody reactions in helminth infections are discussed in this chapter. Expand
Human Blood Group Substance B and Escherichia coli 086

  • 1959
TLDR
Blood group A activity was demonstrated in purified Vi antigen preparations and blood group B activity in whole cells of Escherichia coli 086, which affords a model for the possible influence of blood groups in resistance to infection against those microbial agents which may possess blood group antigens. Expand
EFFECTS OF CULTURAL CONDITIONS ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF ANTIGENS BY COCCIDIOIDES IMMITIS.
TLDR
A variety of factors appear to be important in determining the specificity and potency of these antigens, including possible strain differences, conditions of cultures and methods of extraction. Expand
