Alveolar macrophage priming by intravenous administration of chitin particles polymers of N-acetyl-D-glucosamine in mice 2011 72849 Intravenous (i.v.) administration of phagocytosable chitin particles (1 to 10 mm) in C57BL/6 mice and SCID mice primed alveolar macrophages (Mf) within 3 days to yield up to a 50-fold increase in their oxidative burst when elicited in vitro with phor...
Capture of heat-killed Mycobacterium bovis bacillus Calmette-Guérin by intelectin-1deposited on cell surfaces 2011 72849 Intelectin is an extracellular animal lectin found in chordata. Although human and mouse intelectin-1 recognize galactofuranosyl residues included in cell walls of various microorganisms the physiological function of mammalian intelectin had been unc...
Th1 Adjuvant N-Acetyl-d-Glucosamine Polymer Up-Regulates Th1 Immunity but Down-Regulates Th2 Immunity against a Mycobacterial Protein (MPB-59) in Interleukin-10-Knockout and Wild-Type Mice 2011 72849 Treatment of mice with heat-killed (HK) Mycobacterium bovis BCG or 1- to 10-μm chitin particles (nonantigenic N-acetyl-d-glucosamine polymers) is known to induce innate immune responses including gamma interferon (IFN-γ) production which plays a Th...
