(Phytolacca americana) is a native perennial, herbaceous (dies to the ground in the fall), multistemmed plant growing to 4 feet tall, with white flowers in spring.

One of our plants of interest that grows locally and is found in both wooded areas and the city is pokeweed
mitogen (Gibco BRL, USA) was used to stimulate the lymphocytes to proliferate in culture.
The banks were overgrown with bushes and vines; some bushes called pokeweed
grew dark indigo berries that were poisonous.
campion, potato vine, pokeweed

Aperennial which is new to me is Plant World's phytolacca Silberstein, a new and lovely variegated form of the hardy herbaceous pokeweed
from north America.
The cells were incubated for 96h with both VA-E at 0, 10, 100 and 1000 [micro]g/ml, interleukin-6 at 1000 U/ml, and pokeweed
mitogen and phytohaemagglutinine at 2.
phytohemagglutinin (PHA) to stimulate T cells, pokeweed
mitogen (PWM) to induce B and T cells, and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to activate monocytes and B cells, HCV RNA was detected in all of the individuals.
7,9) Our patient had normal lymphocyte proliferative responses to pokeweed
mitogen, phytohemagglutinin, and concanavalin A, while having weak responses to both Candida antigens and tetanus toxoid.
The veterans and controls were compared for the percentage of T cells (CD3); B cells (CD19); helper:suppressor (CD4:CD8) ratio; natural killer (NK) cell activity; mitogenic response to phytohemagglutin (PHA) and pokeweed
mitogen (PWM); level of immune complexes; myelin basic protein (MBP) and striated and smooth muscle autoantibodies; and antibodies against Epstein-Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), HSV-2, human herpes Type 6 (HHV-6), and Varicella zoster virus (VZV).
However, total immunoglobulin G levels are higher in HTLV-II-infected persons (29), in vitro cell proliferation in response to pokeweed
mitogen is suppressed in HTLV-II infection (28), and HTLV-II may induce expression of interferon-[gamma], granulocyte macrophage-colony-stimulating factor, and other cytokines (30,31).
crowded the edge of the in-ground pool, which was filled with black water.
The tonic consisted of prickly ash bark, red clover blossoms, barberry root, liquorice root, pokeweed
, alfalfa, buckthorn bark, and burdock root--all dissolved in cascara.
(Phytolacca americana) to germinate, and produce a valuable food source (seeds and soft mast) for many bird species, including northern bobwhites.
