A method for isolating continuous cell lines from Toxorhynchites amboinensis (Diptera: Culicidae)


, : A method for isolating continuous cell lines from Toxorhynchites amboinensis (Diptera: Culicidae). Journal of Medical Entomology, 182: 140-144

Minced larval tissue fragments and mechanically damaged but living whole larvae of Toxorhynchites amboinensis (Doleschall) were compared for initiating continuous cell lines. No cell line was obtained from completely minced larval tissue fragments, although patches of cells that adhered to the glass walls of the test-tube often replicated for 3-8 weeks. Over 20 continuous cell lines were isolated however from mechanically damaged but living larvae.

The consensus motifs of HLA-Cw3, -Cw4, -Cw6, and -Cw7 ligands were determined by pool sequencing. Together with information obtained by sequencing of some prominent individual peptides, the results indicate the following: (i) all four HLA-C molecu...

The c9,t11–18:2 isomer of conjugated linoleic acid (c9,t11-CLA) represents the main dietary CLA form with putative health benefits. Whereas CLA intake influences the tissue CLA concentration, little is known about the association between die...
