This report describes the further development of a peanut allergy model in Brown Norway (BN) rats and in particular the importance of allergen-free breeding of the laboratory animals for the allergen to be used. For this purpose BN rats were bred for 3 generations on soy- and peanut-free feed since it is known that the legumes peanut and soy are...

A multidimensional analytical method for the rapid determination and identification of proteins has been developed. The method is based on the size-exclusion fractionation of protein-containing samples, subsequent on-line trypsin digestion and desalination, and reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography-electrospray mass spectrometry...

There is little knowledge about the factors that determine the allergenicity of food proteins. One aspect that remains to be elucidated is the effect of the food matrix on immune responses to food proteins. To study the intrinsic immunogenicity of allergens and the influence of the food matrix, purified peanut allergens (Ara h 1, Ara h 2, Ara h...

Although food allergy has emerged as a major health problem, the mechanisms that are decisive in the development of sensitization to dietary Ag remain largely unknown. CTLA-4 signaling negatively regulates immune activation, and may play a crucial role in preventing induction and/or progression of sensitization to food Ag. To elucidate the role...

Background: Peanut allergy is known for its severity and persistence through life. Several peanut proteins have been identified as allergenic and are indicated as Ara h 1-7. Very little is known about the mechanisms that underlie sensitization to peanut proteins. Objective: The purpose of the present study was to reveal the immune responses that...

Cholera toxin, one of the toxins that may be generated by various strains of the bacterium Vibrio cholerae, can be considered as a substance possibly used in biological warfare. The possibilities of characterising the toxin by liquid chromatography electrospray mass spectrometry (LC-ES-MS) were investigated. The toxin can be detected by flow...

The effect of compounds increasing intracellular adenosine 3':5'cyclic monophosphate [cAMP](i) levels (prostacyclin. isoproterenol, forskolin, cholera toxin), and of the cAMP analogs 8-bromo-cAMP and dibutyrpl-cAMP, on the regulated secretion (acute release) of tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA) and von Willebrand factor (vWF) was studied...

The synthesis, storage and regulated secretion (acute release) of tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA) were studied in cultured rat heart endothelial (RHE) cells. In this study, special attention was paid to the correspondence between tPA metabolism in RHE cells in vitro and tPA metabolism in rats in vivo. RHE cells synthetized tPA, as shown...

The process of acute release of tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA) is important in locally speeding up fibrinolysis. Using a sensitive enzyme- linked immunosorbent assay for tPA, we investigated the acute release of tPA from cultured human umbilical vein endothelial cells. The addition of thrombin (0.003 to 3 NIH U/mL) caused the dose...

The acute release of t-PA was studied in vitro in human endothelial cells from different origin. It proved possible to enhance the amounts of t-PA which can be released by increasing t-PA synthesis, both in vitro, and in vivo in rats. These data suggest the feasibility to induce and (or) enhance acute release of t-PA in man. Chemicals/CAS:...
