Transduction was performed according to the manufacturer's protocol, as previously described.[19] The transduction efficiencies of the LVs in Jurkat cells were monitored by fluorescence microscopy 3 days after transduction.
The results of 27 MHz quartz-crystal microbalance (QCM) measurements of DR5 with 5 and 6 and costaining experiments of Jurkat cells with 5 and anti-DR5 antibody that 5 and 6 bind to DR5 at the different sites from the recognition sites of anti-DR5 antibody.
Simian retrovirus (SRV) infection of Jurkat T lymphocytes (Jurkat cells) was confirmed by syncytia formation, of which the membrane of the neighboring cells fused to one another.
Briefly, the unactivated and activated Jurkat cells (1 x [10.sup.6] cells/well) were treated in triplicate with, or without, Ti(IV) ions (5, 25, 50, or 100 [micro]M) in 6-well plates for 24 h.
Methods: Flow cytometry (FCM) analyses of Jurkat cells treated with CSM bark extract (0-500 ugxmL-1) for 24-72 h allowed evaluating its cytotoxicity and ability to induce apoptosis through the intrinsic or extrinsic pathways.
