Validation of the CALUX bioassay for PCDD/F analyses in human blood plasma and comparison with GC-HRMS.

CALUX bioassay to measure all compounds with affinity for the AhR may partly explain this proportional systematic error. Nevertheless, the present results suggest that the CALUX bioassay could be ...

Induction of in vivo functional Db-restricted cytolytic T cell activity against a putative phosphate transport receptor of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

we determined the immunodominant Th1-type CD4 (+) T cell epitopes in C57BL /10 mice, as measured by spleen cell IL-2 and IFN-gamma production. Furthermore, a potent IFN-gamma-inducing, D(b)-restricted ...
