For example, chrysotile fibres have been shown to depress the in vitro proliferation of phytohemagglutinin-stimulated peripheral blood lymphocytes, suppress natural killer cell lysis and significantly reduce lymphokine-activated killer cell viability and recovery.
We transformed C. arabica with the alpha-amylase inhibitor-1 gene (alpha-AI-1) from the common bean, Phaseolus vulgaris, under control of the seed-specific phytohemagglutinin promoter (PHA-L).
An interesting seed protein family with a role in preventing insect herbivory is the multi-gene, APA family encoding the alpha-amylase inhibitor, phytohemagglutinin and arcelin proteins of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris).
Three easily accessible cell types were studied: T lymphocytes prepared from phytohemagglutinin (PHA) - stimulated peripheral blood
In addition, cells were added to 6 wells containing medium only as a negative control, and 2 wells containing phytohemagglutinin (PHA) (1 µg / ml in the well) as a positive control.
Briefly, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were isolated from a healthy volunteer and stimulated for 18 hours with phytohemagglutinin (PHA).
For virus isolation, PBMCs were co-cultured with phytohemagglutinin (PHA) (1 µg/ml) - stimulated CD8
Other parameters measured included mixed-leukocyte reaction (MLR), natural killer (NK) cell activity, the proliferative response of T lymphocytes toward mitogen (phytohemagglutinin
