1.5 x [10.sup.5] PBMC/well from 8 pigs before infection (0 dpi) and day 28 post infection (28 dpi) were stimulated in triplicate with recombinant GRA1, GRA2, GRA7, GRA9, BAG1, or SAG1 (1 [micro]g/ml) and T cell proliferation was determined via [sup.3]H- thymidine incorporation.
The quadratic and cubic polynomial terms were nonsignificant (P >0.05) for 6 genes (ACTB, BAG1, CD68, ESR1, RPLPO, and TFRC), indicating linear performance over the entire RNA range tested (2-1[degrees] to 8 ng).
In addition, the disease-related mutation DJ-1 L166P shifts its subcellular distribution to the nucleus and decreases its ability to dimerize, whereas BAG1, the first discovered BAG family protein, restores DJ-1 L166P subcellular distribution and dimerization [36].
