[relationship between the presence of meconium in newborn lambs and postnatal ph and blood gas tension levels (author's transl)].the ph of the blood and blood gas tension (po2 and pco2) were estimated in thirty-two lambs. blood was taken from the umbilical vein during labour and blood was collected from the left ventricle after birth (1, 10 and 60 minutes). the findings in twenty-one lambds were used to determine the relationship between the presence of meconium on the fleece and the postnatal changes in ph and blood gas tension. ph, blood gas tension and vitality were found to be identical both in the meconium-stained an ...197940320
polymorphism of the second component of human complement (c2). observation of the rare phenotype (c2 2 (= c2 b) and data on the localization of the c2 locus in the hla region.the polymorphism of the second component of human complement was studied by means of isoelectric focusing in polyacrylamide gels with subsequent complement-dependent lysis of sensitized sheep erythrocytes in an agarose overlay containing c2-deficient or normal human serum. in a material of 289 unrelated individuals the following gene frequencies were observed: c21=0.965 and c22=0.035. the rare phenotype c2 2 (=c2 b) could be seen once in a child of a c2 1--2 heterozygous mother. the investigatio ...197940340
[effect of vitamin d and vitamin e on the erythrocyte membrane. i. effect on in vitro osmolar resistance and lysis].as in the case of retinol, low doses of cholecalcipherol and alpha-tocopherol "in vitro" increase the osmotic resistance of red blood cells, while high doses have a lytic effect on the erythrocytes of various animal species (e.g.: man, sheep, rabbit, guinea-pig, mouse, rat) with the exception of the chicken. the haemolytic effect of cholecalcipherol is less intense than that of retinol; alpha-tochopherol, while causing even less haemolysis than cholecalcipherol, involves a remarkable loss of k+ ...197840412
cross-neutralization between vesicular stomatitis virus type indiana and chandipura virus.using highly potent immune sheep sera, it was possible to demonstrate that: (1) two rhabdoviruses, classified in the vesiculovirus genus on morphological grounds but previously considered unrelated, viz., the vesicular stomatitis virus type indiana (vsv), and chandipura virus (chv), show a low-level, but distinct cross-neutralization. this was, in most combinations, considerably increased by complement. (2) the species of cells used for growing the viruses for immunization and for neutralization ...197940419

effects of aging on the differentiation and proliferation potentials of cells of the immune system.an attempt has been made here to show that the immune system can begin to decline in function shortly after an individual reaches maturity. the decline is due in part to changes in the environment of the cells but primarily to changes in the precursor cells of the system. this is reflected in their inability to proliferate and possibly differentiate efficiently. these findings show that the immune system can serve as an excellent model to study how aging can perturb the process of cells undergoi ...197546834
lymphoid cells in infectious mononucleosis classified according to t and b cell markers.it has been demonstrated that peripheral blood lymphocytes, particularly the "atypical" ones, are predominantly of the t type in infectious mononucleosis (im). this is based on membrane marker studies (e rosettes, receptor for complement, receptor for fc fragment of immunoglobulins (ig), and membrane ig) and by anti-t lymphocyte serum. on the other hand, lymphoblastoid cell lines derived from im patients show the characteristics of b lymphocytes. this permits the suppostion that ebv infects b ly ...197546854
observations on rabbit thymocytes and peripheral t cells. i. anomalous results in the mixed antiglobulin reaction caused by non-specific adsorption of sheep immunoglobulin.the "single-stage" mixed antiglobulin reaction (mar) was carried out with rabbit thymocytes. this test involved treating the cells with either sheep or goat anti-rabbit globulin sera, and subsequently reacting them with indicator erythrocytes coated with rabbit immunoglobulin (ig) so as to form rosettes. an unexpectedly high number (up to 38%) of thymocytes reacted, although the rosettes were weaker than those given by peripheral b lymphocytes. when blood and lymph node lymphocytes or thymus cel ...197546855

immune specific production of interferon by human t cells in combined macrophage-lymphocyte cultures in response to herpes simplex antigen.human peripheral blood lymphocytes, highly enriched for t cells, were obtained by passing gravity-sedimented leukocytes through nylon wool columns. the eluted cells were cultured with autologous macrophages and the mixture was studied for its capacity to produce interferon in vitro in response to stimulation with herpes simplex virus antigen. the interferon produced by the combined macrophage-lymphocyte cultures was shown to depend upon the presence of t cells; elimination of these cells by trea ...197546881
characterization of human b lymphocyte specific antigens.anti-human b cell serum (abs) was developed by sequentially absorbing a rabbit anti-human tonsil serum (ahts) with human red cells, liver, serum, and thymocytes. ahts was also absorbed quantitatively with tissues and cells from different sources. abs was nontoxic for thymocytes but lysed the majority of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (cll) cells. this also killed a number of tonsil and blood lymphocytes which bound erythrocyte-antibody-complement complexes but not sheep erythrocytes. in further st ...197546882
specificity of basophils and lymphocytes in cutaneous basophil hypersensitivity.using a rosetting technique, it was found that the vast majority of basophils circulating in the blood or accumulating in the skin reactions of guinea pigs primed for cutaneous basophil hypersensitivity (cbh) lacked demonstrable specificity for sensitizing antigen, whether sheep erythrocytes, a soluble protein, or tumor cells. by contrast, one-third of cells teased from late skin reactions formed specific rosettes as did nearly 80% of circulating basophils in animals receiving repeated doses of ...197546884
relationship between fc receptors, antigen-binding sites on t and b cells, and h-2 complex-associated determinants.the relationship between h-2 complex-associated determinants, fc receptors, and specific antigen-recognition sites on t and b cells was examined by binding and functional assays. the fc receptor was detected by radiolabeled immune complexes or aggregated human igg. both these reagents selectively bound to b cells, not to t cells. when spleen cells, from mice primed to several antigens, were exposed to highly substituted radioactive aggregates, their capacity to transfer both a direct and indirec ...197546915
evidence for specific suppression in the maintenance of immunologic tolerance.specific suppressor cells have been demonstrated in mice tolerant to the thymus-dependent antigen hgg. transfer of normal thymocytes, normal spleen cells, or immune spleen cells into these tolerant mice did not restore immunocompetence to hgg. furthermore, the transfer of tolerant spleen cells into normal recipients abrogated the response of these recipients to subsequent challenge with immunogenic hgg. spleen cells removed from mice 5, 8, or 11 wk after the induction of tolerance specifically s ...197546917

differences in the graft-versus-host reactivity of cells migrating through nonlymphoid tissue or lymph nodes.normal lymphocyte transfer reactions have been used to test the alloreactivity of lymphocytes which have migrated through lymph nodes (i.e., in efferent lymph) or nonlymphoid tissues (i.e., in afferent lymph) in sheep. lymphocytes from afferent lymph are much less efficient at inducing a normal lymphocyte transfer lesion than lymphocytes from efferent lymph. afferent cell preparations (which contain about 10% macrophages) do, however, cause a greater inflammatory response in the early part of th ...197547199

acute leukemia with burkitt's tumor cells: a study of six cases with special reference to lymphocyte surface markers.in six patients with acute leukemia (about 2% of the patients referred for acute lymphoblastic leukemia) the blast cells invading bone marrow and blood showed all the cytologic, cytochemical, and electron microscopy features of burkitt's tumor cells. the presence of monoclonal surface immunoglobulins (their synthesis being proved by in vitro culture experiments), the binding of igg aggregates, and the absence of rosette formation with sheep red cells documented the monoclonal b-cell origin of th ...197547248
studies of the inhibition of c56-initiated lysis (reactive lysis). iv. antagonism of the inhibitory activity c567-inh by poly-l-lysine.the stable intermediate complex c56 can initiate the lysis (reactive lysis) of unsensitized erythrocytes (e) by the membrane attack machanism of complement. certain serum constituents designated c567-inh inhibit reactive lysis by preventing the c567 complex, once formed, from attaching to a membrane surface. it is shown here that microgram quantities of poly-l-lysine (pll), a synthetic polycation of molecular weight 180,000, can reverse the effests of c567-inh, and thereby potentiate formation o ...197547309
long-term visna virus infection of sheep choroid plexus cells: initiation and preliminary characterization of the carrier cultures.two sheep choroid plexus cell cultures were maintained and propagated for 413 days since being infected with strain k796 visna virus. the majority of the cells in these cultures contained visna virus-specific antigen on days 93 and 105 after infection. reverse transcriptase-like activity similar to that present in visna virus preparations was obtained from these cultures when very little plaque-forming virus was being synthesized. the persistently infected cultures are resistant to the cytopathi ...197547311
