collagen binding in clinical isolates of staphylococcus aureus.collagen binding was examined in 90 strains of staphylococcus aureus derived from patient samples. slightly under one-half (39 of 90) of the s. aureus strains bound collagen. collagen binding in s. aureus did not correlate with either immunoglobulin g or fibronectin binding by these organisms. chi-square analysis of isolates obtained from patients with complicated bacteremia (bacteremia associated with deep tissue infection) compared with isolates from patients with uncomplicated bacteremia (bac ...19873429618
effect of pre- and postnatal exposure to alcohol on perivenous and periportal neonatal rat hepatocytes.hepatocytes from 12-day-old rats, pre and postnatally exposed to alcohol and pair-fed controls, were isolated and subfractionated in six cell subpopulations on percoll density gradients. these cells were characterized using biochemical, stereological and cytofluorometric methods. our results show that the low density cells (f2) are mainly perivenous cells, whereas the heavier cells (f6) were primarily periportal cells. these results were confirmed by alanine aminotransferase (alat), and glutamat ...19873426691
use of mild detergent gel electrophoresis for isolation and characterization of the kidney brush border d-glucose transporter.gradient gel electrophoresis was performed under mild detergent conditions to separate pig kidney brush border membrane proteins and to identify the smallest functional molecular protein entity of the d-glucose transporter. the various protein bands obtained from the nondenaturing gel system in a semipreparative scale were eluted by electrodialysis. these proteins were then reintegrated into proteoliposomes and tested for d-glucose-inhibitable [3h]phlorizin binding. the d-glucose transporter had ...19873425911

biosynthesis and processing of platelet gpiib-iiia in human megakaryocytes.platelet membrane glycoprotein iib-iiia forms a calcium-dependent heterodimer and constitutes the fibrinogen receptor on stimulated platelets. gpiib is a two-chain protein containing disulfide-linked alpha and beta subunits. gpiiia is a single chain protein. these proteins are synthesized in the bone marrow by megakaryocytes, but the study of their synthesis has been hampered by the difficulty in obtaining enriched population of megakaryocytes in large numbers. to examine the biosynthesis and pr ...19873108266

[development of a latex agglutination method for the diagnosis of pseudomonas aeruginosa infection].the present investigation has revealed the possibility of using different kinds of monodispersed polystyrene latex, produced in the ussr, as carriers in the process of the preparation of antibody diagnosticums intended for the detection of water-soluble slime antigens of pseudomonas aeruginosa strains belonging to the most widespread serological types. the optimum conditions for the preparation of latex reagents and for making the latex-agglutination test have been experimentally established. th ...19863087117

use of the romanian product silimarina in the treatment of chronic liver diseases.the romanian product silimarina (synonym legalon) was administered in a randomized double-blind trial, to a group of 180 patients with chronic persistent hepatitis (cph), chronic active hepatitis (cah) and hepatic cirrhosis (hc). the trial lasted for 40 days. the results showed favourable effects similar with those obtained with other preparations produced by foreign drug industries. the romanian product proved to have no toxic effect. the authors discuss the present possibilities of estimating ...20113072661
