Inhibition of Haemonchus contortus larval development by fungal lectins.
Zürich, Switzerland. In Parasit Vectors, 2014
METHODS: The effect of Coprinopsis cinerea lectins - CCL2, CGL2, CGL3; Aleuria aurantia lectin - AAL; Marasmius oreades agglutinin - MOA; and Laccaria bicolor lectin - Lb-Tec2, on cultivated Haemonchus contortus larval stages was investigated using a larval development test (LDT).
Granzyme H is a novel protease expressed by human mast cells.
Uppsala, Sweden. In Int Arch Allergy Immunol, 2013
Here, we address the human relevance of the latter findings by investigating whether human mast cells express granzyme H, the granzyme that may represent the functional counterpart to murine granzyme D. METHODS: Cord blood-derived mast cells, LAD2 cells and skin mast cells in situ were evaluated for their expression of granzymes using quantitative PCR, Western blot analysis and immunostaining.
Molecular underpinning of extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma.
Taiwan. In Best Pract Res Clin Haematol, 2013
Gene expression profiling identified that most of the NKTCL are derived from activated natural killer cells with distinctively high expression of granzyme H compared to other PTCLs, which might serve as a new diagnostic biomarker.
