lymphocyte traffic within the bone marrow and selective retention of alloreactive cells.earlier studies showed that large numbers of isotopically labelled thoracic duct lymphocytes (tdls) enter the bone marrow (bm) within hours of injection but depart equally as rapidly by 12 to 24 hr. the significance of this rapid flux was investigated further. early (1/2 to 2 hr) after the i.v. injection of tdls, bm was shown to contain t cells capable of initiating a graft-versus-host (gvh) reaction in f1 hybrids and in other experiments memory cells against human serum albumin (hsa). both gvh ...197937619
[water intake, ph and ammonia levels in the ruminal contents of sheep fed pelleted feed].wethers were studied for the effect of the complete pelleted feed ration on the intake of water and concentration of ph and ammonia in the rumen. the animals consumed daily 1300 g of dry matter of the diet containing 41.81% of meadow hay, 25.8% of barley, 15.37% of sawdust, 14.98% of molasses, 1.32% of urea and 1.24% of vitamin mineral supplement. this feed was given to them for six months. the pelleted diet increased the intake of water (the dry matter consumption remaining the same in the cont ...197937631
in vitro binding of trypanosoma congolense to erythrocytes.trypanosoma congolense broden, an intravascular parasite, binds to vessel walls and erythrocytes of infected hosts. in an attempt to characterize t. congolense adhesion to host cells, an in vitro assay was devised. it was shown in the in vitro experiments that t. congolense binds to bovine, sheep, and goat erythrocytes, but not always to erythrocytes of rats, mice, rabbits, horses or humans. only the anterior part of live trypanosomes adheres to erythrocytes, and the attachment site on the trypa ...197939167
