Macrophages infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis undergo increased rates of apoptosis. Important objectives are to define the microbial factors that cause apoptosis, the mechanisms involved and the impact on infection. The 19-kDa M. tuberculosis glycolipoprotein (p19) is both cell wall-associated and...

We have shown previously that IgM from Ehrlich tumor (ET)-immunized mice, recognizing ET cell surface carbohydrates, protects control mice to a subsequent tumor challenge. The factors involved in such IgM-mediated protection were unknown, since it was independent of complement activation....

Endotoxins liberated by gram-negative bacteria are frequent contaminants of aqueous and physiological solutions. Because of their potent biological effects in vivo and in vitro, it is often necessary to eliminate even minute quantities of endotoxin from such solutions. A process...

Chemokines are an extended group of chemoattractant cytokines responsible for the recruitment of leukocytes into tissues. Among them, interferon-γ-inducible protein 10 (CXCL10) is abundantly expressed following inflammatory stimuli and participates in the trafficking of monocytes and activated T cells into...

To investigate the role of endotoxin in grain dust-induced airway inflammation, we reduced the endotoxin activity from extracts of corn dust (CDE), using three distinct methods, and determined the effect of endotoxin activity on the in vitro and in vivo...
