human nasal epithelial cell culture system: evaluation of response to human interferons.this report describes the response of human nasal epithelial cells to exogenously applied human interferon (if). to measure the response, a system developed to study human nasal epithelial cells in vitro was used. nasal epithelial cells responded equally to both leukocyte and fibroblast if, with development of resistance to virus replication that was time and dose dependent. cells required contact with 1,000 u of if (400 69/19 reference units) for 4 h to produce consistently a significant reduct ...1977193789
affinity of sendai virus for the inner ear of mice.the direct immunofluorescent antibody method revealed that sendai virus, which was thought to be most prevalent in respiratory diseases in mice, infected the inner ear of mice when the virus was injected intracerebrally. specific immunofluorescence that indicated the presence of antigens of sendai virus was observed in both perilymphatic and endolymphatic structures. the routes of virus spread are discussed. this experimental study, using newborn mice and sendai virus, may be useful for the inve ...1977193797
histopathological changes in mice treated with extracts of the histamine-sensitizing factor of bordetella pertussis.the histamine-sensitizing factor (hsf) of bordetella pertussis was isolated in a highly purified form. in addition to inducing profound sensitization to histamine, it also caused a significant lymphocytosis and produced an enhancement of reaginic antibody production in animals upon immunization with antigen. biologically active doses of hsf produced significant pathological changes in mice including congestion and edema of the lung and a marked depletion of cells in the thymus, white pulp of the ...1977193800
effects of chaotropic agents versus detergents on dihydroorotate chaotropic salts are generally believed to affect water structure in a manner which increases lipophilicity of water, they may seem to be capable of substituting for detergents in the solubilization of particulate enzyme. although solubilization either by detergents or by chaotropic salts has been demonstrated with several membrane proteins, the effects these agents have on the properties and activity of an enzyme may be quite different. this is illustrated by the effects on mammalian mitocho ...1977193834

the spin-state transition of the hemochrome non-equilibrium conformation in partially reduced human methemoglobin. a pulse-radiolysis study of aqueous-methanol solutions of methemoglobin.the effect of external parameters on the relaxation process of the hemochrome-type non-equilibrium conformation in partially reduced methemoglobin has been investigated. the relaxation of the intermediate ferrous low-spin state to the high-spin equilibrium conformation of hemoglobin appears to be facilitated particularly by protons and phosphate ions. in addition to studying the spin-state transition in aquomethemoglobin we have also studied it in complexes of the heme group in methemoglobin wit ...1978211030
effect of n-(3,5-dichlorophenyl)succinimide on the histological pattern and incidence of kidney tumors induced by streptozotocin rats.the effect of the nephrotoxic substance, n-(3,5-dichlorophenyl)succinimide, on the histological pattern and incidence of kidney tumors induced by streptozotocin in rats was studied. in groups administered streptozotocin alone or in combination with nicotinamide, the histological pattern and the incidence of kidney tumors in rats were similar; renal cell tumors developed in 1 of 9 rats (11.1%) and in 2 of 17 rats (11.8%), respectively. however, post-treatment with n-(3,5-dichlorophenyl)succinimid ...1977211064
catalase positive particles from pig lung. biochemical preparations and morphological pig lung tissue catalase positive particles (cps) are abundant especially in type ii pneumocytes and in clara cells. in both cell types they occur as circular, oval or elongated membrane profiles surrounding a moderately electron dense matrix lacking a crystalline core. in clara cells and in part of type ii pneumocytes they are located as individual particles without any evident morphological relation to other cell organelles. in part of type ii pneumocytes 5-8 particles are forming a group a ...1978211101

[activity of the alternative complement pathway by various axenic strains of entamoeba histolytica].the activation of the alternative pathway of complement by axenic cultures of e. histolytica is reported. the activation is carried out in different proportions by several axenic strains, i.e., hk9:nih, hm1:imss, hm2:imss and hm3:imss; the end result consists of a destruction of the parasite as well as consumption of the serum complement. the participation of the alternative pathway was studied in the presence of egta and mg++, zymosan, heat-inactivation at 50 degree c for 20 min and immunoelect ...1978211963
[transmissible gastroenteritis of swine as a model for infectious diarrhea].transmissible gastro-enteritis is a virus-caused diarrhoeal disease of swine which may result in up to a total loss among newborn animals. changes are, primarily, of pathologicoanatomic nature and take place in the small intestine. the epithelium of the intestinal villi is completely destroyed, and diarrhoea is the result. deformation in blood composition is a secondary sequel. the diarrhoea proper causes dehydration and acidosis which, in conjunction with abnormal heart function due to hyperkal ...1978211981

genetic determination of the alpha-galactosidase developmental program in mice.the expression of alpha-galactosidase in liver, heart, and brain during postembryonic development has been examined in several inbred mouse strains. in most strains, the developmental patterns of alpha-galactosidase are coordinate with those of two other acid hydrolases, beta-glucuronidase and beta-galactosidase. certain inbred mouse strains, including members of the c57-c58 family, have a tissue-specific alteration in the temporal expression of alpha-galactosidase activity. this alteration show ...1975212204
