Thyroid dendritic cells and not thyrocytes are the antigen-presenting cells in the thyroiditis of the autoimmune-prone BB rat. Evidence for an aberrant status of maturation of the dendritic cells of the BB rat leading to autoimmunity
Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and human glandular kallikrein 2 (hK2) are secreted by the prostate into seminal plasma and through leakage into blood. This leakage increases rapidly in prostate disease, and PSA is used worldwide as a marker of prostate cancer. PSA is activated in vitro by hK2, and ...
Studies of Re-Xenografted Thyroid Tissue of Graves' Disease (GD) after Sojourn in Nude Mice into Severe Combined Immunodeficient (SCID) Mice: The Effect of Adding Autologous Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMC) with a Surfeit of CD8+ T Cells
Identification and characterization of a cell sub-population corresponding to dendritic cells within the primary cultures of thyroid cells. Evidence for thyroid cell-mediated regulatory actions of TSH on the expression of the differentiated functions of dendritic cells
Hexamethylene bisacetamide (HMBA) and retinoic acid (RA), two putative inducers of differentiation in anaplastic and papillary human cancer thyroid cells. In vitro studies on mRNA expression of the sodium-iodide symporter (NIS) and TSH-receptor (TSH-R)
A Canadian isolate of porcine parvovirus, isolated from cultured pig thyroid cells, was shown to be antigenically indistinguishable from a British (59e/63) and a German (G10/1) strain when treated by the modified direct complement-fixation, the hemagglutination-inhibition and the fluorescent antibod...
Decreased Sensitivity of Thyroid Stimulating Antibody Assay with Chinese Hamster Ovary Cells Transfected with Cloned Human TSH Receptor Using Hypotonic Incubation Media which is due to Decreased Viability of Cells During Incubation
