Or dye at 37 , the fluorescence was measured at an excitation wavelength of 530 ?25 nm and an emission wavelength of 590 ?35 nm with a Bio-Tek FL600 microplate fluorescence reader. Triplicate samples were assayed, background corrected and the results were expressed as a percentage of the values from untreated control cells. Cytokine protein arrays Cytokine expression profiling was performed on cul

Duced CD55 promotes T-cell proliferation and Th1 cytokine expression. In addition to C3 production, APCs cleave C3 leading to autocrine and paracrine C3R signaling. C3R signaling promotes MHC class II expression, IL-12 production and B7 co-stimulatory molecules. Dendritic cells that fail to express C3aR suffer reduced T-cell activation. Anaphylatoxins are well known initiators of inflammation but

Allele primers, amplifies a 434 bp DNA fragment from SRA-deficient ZK1, ZK2 and ZK6 cells. With primers for MARCO wild-type allele, amplifies a 500 bp DNA fragment from WT mice; with primers for MARCO mutant allele, amplifies a 850 bp DNA fragment from ZK cells. ZK1, ZK2 and ZK6 clones exhibited both MARCO and SRA-I/II-deficient. PCR products, ca.10 l/each was resolved on a 1.5 agarose gel by gel

Further define MARCO and SR-AI/II function, and may also be useful to identify other novel scavenger-type macrophage receptors and for additional studies of particle toxicology.BackgroundThe pulmonary alveolar macrophage (AM) plays an important role in defense of the lung [1-5]. Class A scavenger receptors (SRA) primarily expressed on the macro-phage (M? surface are critical for binding, uptake, a

Cell lines from primary alveolar macrophages from MS-/- mice. Results: We used in vitro infection of the primary AMs with the J2 retrovirus carrying the v-raf and v-myc oncogenes. Following initial isolation in media supplemented with murine macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF), we subcloned three AM cell lines, designated ZK-1, ZK-2 and ZK-6. These cell lines grow well in RPMI-1640-10 FB
