The effect of glycosylation on the antibody recognition of a MUC2 mucin epitope.
MUC2 glycoprotein, produced by the epithelium of the colon and constructed up primarily of repeat items of (1) PTTTPITTTTTVTPTPTPTGTQT(23) , could be overexpressed or underglycosylated in gastrointestinal illnesses, e.g. in case of colon carcinoma. We have now been finding out the epitope construction of the MUC2 by specializing in the repeat unit with the mucin…Read More
NOX1/NADPH oxidase is involved in the LPS-induced exacerbation of collagen-induced arthritis
We examine as but an unidentified position of NOX1, a non-phagocytic isoform of the superoxide-generating NADPH oxidase, in immune responses utilizing Nox1-knockout mice (Nox1-KO). The transcripts of NOX1 was expressed in lymphoid tissues, together with the spleen, thymus, bone marrow, and inguinal lymphoid nodes. When antibody manufacturing after ovalbumin (OVA) immunization was examined, no important variations had been noticed in serum…Read More
