Grass carp hemorrhagic virus (GCHV)-induced gene 2 (Gig2) is a novel gene previously identified from UV-inactivated GCHV-treated Carassius auratus blastulae embryonic (CAB) cells, suggesting that it should play a pivotal role in the interferon (IFN) antiviral response. In this study, a polyclonal...
Allergic reactions to walnuts and hazelnuts can be serious. The 11S globulins (legumins) have been identified as important allergens in these and other nuts and seeds. Here we identify the linear IgE-binding epitopes of walnut and hazelnut 11S globulins, and generate 3D 11S globulin models to map...
Ligand binding to B-cell receptors (BcRs) on the B-cell surface induces crosslinking and phosphorylation of BCRs by the Src family kinases, followed by initiation of signaling. Although the nature of the earliest events following receptor engagement is currently under intensive investigation, the...
