Transferrin and Lactoferrin – Human Iron Sources for Enterococci

To overcome limitations in iron acquisition, enterococci have evolved a number of mechanisms to scavenge iron from the host iron-binding proteins – transferrin (TR) and lactoferrin (LF). The aim of this study was to demonstrate the mechanisms by which enterococci utilize human TR and LF bound iron. The study included two strains of Enterococcus faecalis grown in iron-deficient and iron-excess media respectively. The binding activity of both proteins was monitored using proteins labelled

Expression of Duffy antigen receptor for chemokines during reticulocyte maturation:using a CD71 flow cytometric technique to identify reticulocytes

Flow cytometric methods commonly used to identify reticulocytes are of limited usefulness in malarious areas,since RNA staining also detects plasmodia. An important antigen expressed on reticulocytes is Duffy antigen receptor for chemokines (DARC,also known as Fy), the receptor for Plasmodium vivax. An early marker for reticulocytes is CD71 (transferrin receptor). We have been interested in CD71 as an alternative marker for reticulocytes in the context of Fy expression. Flow cytometry was used
