the allergenic structure of allergen m from cod. iii. studies on the antigenicity of long-sequence peptides.fragments tm 1 (75 amino acid residues) and tm 2 (38 amino acid residues), and 3 other polypeptides (range 16-25 amino acid residues) of allergen m from cod were shown to be active in rabbit igg-mediated reactions. the same peptides were previously found to possess reactivity in ige-mediated reactions, thus suggesting a structural relationship between their antigenic and allergenic determinants.197984803

mechanism of binding of mouse interferon to controlled pore glass.many proteins bind to controlled pore glass; they are either acid elutable or alkali elutable. mouse interferon is an acid-elutable protein. since poly(l-lysine) and, to some extent, poly(l-arginine) are also eluted from controlled pore glass under acidic conditions, one may postulate that mouse interferon binds to controlled pore glass via some of the protein's epsilon-amino groups (of lysine) and/or guanidinium groups (of arginine) and the beads' silanol (hydroxyl groups). the necessity of lys ...197994835

regulation of the rate of beta-galactosidase synthese by the bgs and bgt loci in the mouse.we have developed an assay for the in vivo rate of beta-galactosidase synthesis in mouse tissues to assess the mechanism by which the bgs and bgt loci regulate activity levels of this enzyme. genetically determined differences in liver and kidney beta-galactosidase content reflect equivalent differences in specific rates of enzyme synthesis. we conclude that bgs and bgt regulate beta-galactosidase activity by controlling the rate of synthesis of the beta-galactosidase molecule.197897289

escape from antibody-mediated immune suppression in vitro by delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction.anti-sheep erythrocyte antiserum suppressed the in vitro immune response of swine spleen cells to sheep erythrocytes. inhibition of the in vitro anti-sheep erythrocyte response was also observed in neonatal spleen cells, which were obtained from piglets recently fed colostrum. addition of purified protein derivative (ppd) to spleen cell cultures prepared from animals previously sensitized to mycobacterium bovis reversed the immunosuppression caused by passive antibody. passive antibody regulatio ...1977321357
the germicidal effect of the open air in different parts of the netherlands.using the microthread technique the survival of escherichia coli mre 162 in open air was measured in different parts of the netherlands. the presence of bactericidal compounds (open air factor = oaf) could be demonstrated on several days and quantitated in relative units of oaf concentration. in the absence of ozone the oaf concentration was always low. in the presence of ozone the oaf concentration was dependent on wind direction. at the selected microthread exposure sites air from areas with h ...1977321676
gliding motility and actinomycin d sensitivity of fusobacterium nucleatum and other gram-negative rods.six strains of gram-negative anaerobic fusiform rods (fusobacterium and bacteroides spp.), isolated from deep subgingival locations in humans, were examined for (i) gliding motility in slide cultures, (iii) cell densities on nutrient agar surfaces, and (iii) sensitivity to actinomycin d. known gliding (fbt) and nonmotile (nm) strains of myxococcus xanthus served as controls for the gliding and cell density experiments. in the present study, three strains of gram-negative fusiforms from the oral ...1977332633
cell-mediated immunity in neonatal calves: delayed-type hypersensitivity and lymphocyte blastogenesis following immunization with a mycobacterial immunopotentiating glycolipid and tuberculoproteins of mycobacterium bovis. 1978347995
[endocrine function of the salivary glands].the concept of the incretory activity of the parotid and submandibular salivary glands stems from numerous clinical and experimental data indicating a close association between them, sex and pancreatic glands and the pituitary. the paper presents the data on the mechanism of action of the salivary glands hormone, parotine. the participation of the salivary glands, especially at early stages of body formation, in the processes of mineralization of bones and teeth, and in proliferation of the elas ...1978348164
the bacteriology of cavitating pulmonary infections and empysema. studies of transtracheal aspirates and pleural fluid.a prospective study of bacteriology in 14 cases of cavitating pulmonary infections and empyema is reported. bacteriologic results were based on transtracheal aspirates or pleural fluid. appropriate anaerobic bacteriologic methods were employed. anaerobic bacteria were recovered in 11 patients (79%); they were the only pathogens isolated in 6 patients. the predominant species were fusobacterium nucleatum, bacteroides melaninogenicus, bacteroides fragilis and peptostreptococcus. aerobic bacteria w ...1978352421
effects of storage in an anaerobic transport system on bacteria in known polymicrobial mixtures and in clinical anaerobic transport system (ats) which provides for catalytic removal of oxygen was evaluated by using in vitro-prepared polymicrobial mixtures of logphase bacteria and clinical specimens. inoculated swabs were stored at room temperature in (i) aerobic, (ii) anaerobic glove box, and (iii) ats environments, and bacteria were quantitated after 2, 24, 48, and 72 h. bacteria in a three-part mixture of bacteroides fragilis, peptostreptococcus anaerobius, and escherichia coli and in a five-part mix ...1978370142
