Total cell lysates were prepared and subjected to Western blot analysis. Protein levels of phosphorylated ERK1/ERK2 and non-phosphorylated ERK1/ERK2, and ODC, MT1-MMP and MMP2 were detected using the respective monoclonal antibodies (A). The condition serum free media were collected for gelatin zymography analysis from C6 glioma and U-87 cells. Determined activities of these proteins were subsequently quantified by densitometric analysis with the value of controls set at 100% as shown in the graph. The quantitative...

Onder. The same non-responding donor was used for all assays. Unstimulated background was subtracted for each dilution point in CFC and ELISPOT assays. This background was uniformly low (< 0.08% for CFC and < 15 SFC per 2.5 × 10PBMC for ELISPOT) despite the used of allogeneic PBMC for the dilution. Note that the pp65peptide response of this donor (#43) was much lower in ELISPOT compared to the other two assays.Copyright information:Taken from "Precision and...
