The immunostimulatory effect of bio-active peptide from pollen on murine and human lymphocytes.

The effects of bio-active peptide (BP) from buckwheat pollen and its synthetic analogues on murine and human lymphocytes and HL-60 cells were examined. Both natural and synthetic BP had the same effect in the lymphocyte blast transformation test. The proliferative response of HL-60 cells, co-cultured for 72 h with BP, was measured by the MTT method. BP had… CONTINUE READING
