Mucosal Vaccines

This entire, authoritative treatise covers all points of mucosal vaccines together with their improvement, mechanisms of motion, molecular/cellular points, and functional functions. The contributing authors and editors of this special e-book are rather well recognized of their respective fields. Mucosal Vaccines is geared up in a special layout within which easy, scientific, and useful points of the mucosal immune process for vaccine improvement are defined and mentioned.

Gesund oder krank: Das Immunsystem entscheidet

Jeder Mensch verfügt über ein leistungsfähiges Immunsystem, das ihn sicher durch die ständig lauernden Gesundheitsgefahren der Umgebung leitet. Entgleist diese körpereigene Abwehr oder läßt ihre Einsatzfreude nach, wird der Mensch krank. Arnold Hilgers und Inge Hofmann zeigen, wie die moderne Medizin die Geheimnisse und methods dieser inneren Schutztruppen entschlüsselt hat und vielen Feinden des Immunsystems auf die Schliche gekommen ist.

ELISA: Methods and Protocols

This quantity is a realistic biochemical advisor to the Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA), used to realize a goal substance in a liquid pattern. The ELISA is a vital and usual diagnostic instrument in medication, animal well-being, botany and caliber coverage methods in foodstuff and beverage creation.

The Immune Synapse: Methods and Protocols

This quantity offers all of the crucial protocols which are presently used to review the immune synapse. Chapters within the Immune Synapse: equipment and Protocols hide tools for the research of the dynamics of immune synapse meeting, site visitors on the immune synapse, new excessive answer imaging, biophysical and computational equipment for the learn of the immune synapse, effector immune synapses, B phone, NK and mast cellphone immune synapses, and immune interactions in vivo.

Example text

McNiece et al. (1991b) studied primary bone STEM CELL FACTOR 51 marrow cells from mice separated by immunomagnetic bead selection for B220+ and B220- populations. As expected, recombinant IL-7 supported the proliferation of B cells only from the B220+ population. SCF alone supported the proliferation of small myeloid colonies from the B220- populations. However, when both factors were combined, there was a substantial increase in the size of colonies produced from either population, and all of the progeny were B220+.

They demonstrated that on binding EGF, the ligand-receptor complex underwent endocytosis and degradation, and showed that the activated SCFR kinase strongly associated with PI3'K and an 85-kDa phosphoprotein and coupled to PLC-yl and the Raf-1 protein kinase, but did not significantly change levels of inositol phosphate. Based on the observed differences in the signaling observed after ligand binding to this chimeric receptor, and that induced via the receptors for CSF-1 or PDGF, Lev et aE. (1991) also proposed that each receptor in this family is coupled to a specific combination of signal transducers that determines a receptor-specific program of gene expression.

The effects of SCF on B cell lymphopoiesis has been analyzed in primary bone marrow-derived pre-B cells as well as in pre-B cell lines. McNiece et al.
