    J Immunol 178:1589-97. 2007
    ..These results showed that the functional site of interaction between pIgR, J chain and Ig H chains is conserved in these species and suggests that SIgs originated in an ancestor common to tetrapods...

    Centre for Immune Regulation, Institute of Immunology, University of Oslo and Oslo University Hospital, Rikshospitalet, Oslo, Norway
    PLoS ONE 7:e45393. 2012
    ..In combination with the easy cloning strategy, the heterodimeric barnase-barstar vaccine molecule could provide a flexible platform for development of novel DNA vaccines with increased potency...
