Abstract/OtherAbstract:
After a short description of the results of Victor Najjar's research on tuftsin and of the discoveries done by other authors in the early stage of tuftsin investigation, the current state of work on tuftsin is presented, based mainly on the literature published in the years 1984-1997. The presentation follows this order: the occurrence of tuftsin and retro-tuftsin sequences in proteins, their synthesis and biology, the antigenic properties of tuftsin, its influence on phagocytic cells, and other biologic activities of tuftsin, including antimicrobial, antiviral, antitumor and central effects, and the search for tuftsin superactive analogs.
