... consists of a central channel, 20-30 nm in diameter, surrounded by helically wound capsid with a diameter of 40-50 nm and an interval of 5 nm. 7 nm glycoprotein
spikes that are 10 nm apart from each other are present within the outer envelope of the virus, which is derived from the host cell membrane. Each ...

... the immune system learning to recognize non-self.
For instance, the plasma membrane of every nucleated cell contains molecules of a large glycoprotein
called the major histocompatibility complex (MHC). These proteins have configurations and amino acid sequences that are unique to every ....
... this DNA and produce these half-mouse and half-human antibodies. (Bacteria cannot be used for this purpose, since they cannot produce this kind of glycoprotein
). Depending on how big a part of the mouse antibody is used, one talks about chimeric antibodies or humanized antibodies .
Another approach ...
... created against the bacteria will react to ABO-incompatible blood cells.
Apart from on red blood cells, the ABO antigen is also expressed on the glycoprotein
von Willebrand factor (vWF), which participates in hemostasis (control of bleeding). In fact, blood type O predisposes very slightly to ...
