Suppression of lymphocyte blastogenesis
in cows with puerperal metritis and mastitis.
From these tissues, we conducted gonadal histology and determined sex, splenic leukocyte blastogenesis
, and surface immunoglobin M (SIgM) expression in response to LPS.
effects on lymphocyte blastogenesis
in response to either B- or T-cell
of bovine PBMCs was observed on ConA stimulation, which was not observable in the control wells.
For example, Siberian hamsters exposed to short-day photoperiod demonstrate increased natural killer-cell activity and lymphocyte blastogenesis
but decreased phagocytosis and oxidative burst activity by granulocytes (40); deer mice treated with melatonin in constant photoperiod exhibit increased lymphocyte response to mitogen stimulation (41).
This in vitro assay compares the ability of a person's lymphocytes to undergo blastogenesis
in response to chemical stimulants (mitogens).
Jin (1995) reported that Shi-ka-pon (a CHM decoction) and its constituent Lithospermum erythrorhizon and LL could resist immunosuppression induced by the antitumor angent mitomycin C and suggested that its mechanisms might be correlated with stimulation of the reticuloendothelial system, activation of T cell blastogenesis
, and NK cell cytotoxicity.
Examples include lymphoid organ weight and histology, hematology, serum protein and protein fraction quantification, disease incidence or response to pathogen challenge, lymphocyte blastogenesis
, and macrophage and granulocyte functional assays measuring chemotaxis, phagocytosis, respiratory burst, and bactericidal activity (2-5).
008), and lymphocyte blastogenesis
increased from baseline and after viewing (p = .
in response to PHA and ConA challenge was significantly higher in controls than caregivers (p < .
Jaffe developed the first method of measuring cell-mediated immunity using a modified ELISA system in a lymphocyte blastogenesis
brief cell culture.
