An innovative character of the dot blot, which was used in the present study, is in the fact that in the SSHL diagnostics, in addition to free Hsp70, the Hsp70 bound to circulating immune complexes (CIC) is also searched for.
This result confirms previous studies [20,21] that used a dot blot or indirect ELISA techniques based on extraction of rough soluble antigen from [RB.sub.51] vaccinal strain.
In the present study, we studied the distribution patterns of 5hmC, 5fC, and 5caC in the postnatal mouse brain, cultured adult neural stem cells (aNSCs) with immunostaining and dot blot, and compared their global levels.
HAR is a common high-altitude illness, which is clinically characterised by increased dilatation and tortuosity of retinal vasculature along with diffuse dot blot and flame shaped haemorrhages, usually involving mid-periphery.
The homogenate was centrifuged at 12,000 g for 20 min at 4 C and the resulting supernatant was used for dot blot analysis.
These values fall under the Kappa interpretation of almost perfect agreement (0.81-0.99) and substantial agreement (0.61-0.80) for the ELISA and the dot blot, respectively, where Kappa index of 1 is perfect agreement [29].
