The wide-spread use of and demand for myelin basic protein for immunologic studies has prompted us to re-examine the details of its isolation from CNS tissue of various species. The procedure described in this communication for the isolation and purification of myelin basic protein does not require column chromatography and is therefore suitable for large scale preparation of a reasonably pure product with simple laboratory equipment. If certain precautions are taken, the yield and quality of the product are reproducible. Certain contaminants which may accompany myelin basic protein during purification by procedures currently in use are pointed out, and their possible influence on the immunologic behavior of myelin basic protein is discussed. Suitable electrophoretic techniques for the detection of these contaminants as well as details for their removal from the myelin basic protein are described.

    • ...The classification of megacolon was based on the diameter of the sigmoid colon sample obtained from surgery. Patients with significant comorbidities, such as alcoholism, arterial hypertension, autoimmune diseases, cardiomyopathy and malignancy, were excluded. In this study, the patients with the gastrointestinal forms of the disease were divided into 2 groups: moderate form (patients classified in stages I and II – MOD), severe form (patients classified in stages III and IV – SEV), and patients with indeterminate forms of the disease, asymptotic individuals (ASY). Healthy control individuals (N), as well as some with inflammatory esophagitis (GR), also donated blood samples. Each of the 5 groups consisted of 15 individuals. Table 1 demonstrates the main characteristics of the groups used in this study. The healthy individuals were from the same endemic area, but testing negative for Chagas’ disease. None of these patients had received any treatment in the 2-month period prior to the donation of the blood. Informed consent was obtained from all individuals involved, prior to their inclusion in the study. The study was approved by the Human Research Committee of the University of Campinas, Brazil. Human MBPHuman MBP was isolated and purified from normal human white matter according to described methods [...
