Download Bacterial Evasion of Host Immune Responses by Brian Henderson, Petra C. F. Oyston PDF

By Brian Henderson, Petra C. F. Oyston

During the last fifty years cells and mediators considering our immune defences were painstakingly pointed out. even though, it is just rather lately that the power of microorganisms to keep away from immunity has been well-known and investigated. This quantity introduces the mechanisms utilized by micro organism to circumvent either humoral and mobile immune responses, utilizing platforms ranging in complexity from the straightforward quorum sensing molecules (acyl homoserine lactones) to the supramolecular syringe-like units of kind III secretion platforms.

1997). Based on X-ray crystallographical findings and the close amino acid sequence similarities of the different CD1 proteins, it is expected that the proposed antigen-binding grooves of these proteins are electrostatically neutral. This suggests that CD1 binds antigens of a hydrophobic nature and not the charged peptides typically associated with MHC I. Also, unlike MHC I, which contains as many as six small pockets (designated A–F) in its antigen binding groove, CD1 possesses two large pockets (designated as the A and F pockets).

1982). , 1989). , 1990). In vivo Bcg only appeared to influence the initial phase of infection and did not affect the acquired specific immune response. There has been much speculation as to what the function of Bcg might be (Blackwell, 1989). However the Bcg gene was not identified by functional studies, but by a laborious reverse genetics approach by Philippe Gros’ group in Montreal (Gros and Malo, 1989). , 1989, 1990). , 1993a). 1cM approximately corresponds to one megabase (Mb) of DNA, therefore the region containing Bcg was of a size that could be cloned and physically mapped.
