- Intragastric and intraperitoneal administration of Cry1Ac protoxin from Bacillus thuringiensis induces systemic and mucosal antibody responses in miceR I Vázquez-Padrón
Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology CIGB, Havana, Cuba
Life Sci 64:1897-912. 1999..High anti-Cry1Ac IgG antibody levels were detected in the large and small intestine fluids from mice receiving the antigen via i.p. These data indicate that Cry1Ac is a potent systemic and mucosal immunogen...
- Characterization of the mucosal and systemic immune response induced by Cry1Ac protein from Bacillus thuringiensis HD 73 in miceR I Vázquez-Padrón
Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, Havana, Cuba
Braz J Med Biol Res 33:147-55. 2000..The data obtained in the present study confirm that the Cry1Ac protoxin is a potent immunogen able to induce a specific immune response in the mucosal tissue, which has not been observed in response to most other proteins...
- Cry1Ac protoxin from Bacillus thuringiensis sp. kurstaki HD73 binds to surface proteins in the mouse small intestineR I Vázquez-Padrón
Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology CIGB, Havana, 10600, Cuba
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 271:54-8. 2000..The data obtained indicate a possible interaction in vivo of Cry proteins with the animal bowel which could induce changes in the physiological status of the intestine...
