agglutino-, aggluto-, agglutin- (Latin: ad-, "to, toward, near" plus gluten, glutinis, "glue, beeswax").
Capable of agglutilnation (the process of union in the healing of a wound).
1. Promoting union by adhesion.
2. A tenacious gluey substance that holds parts together during the process of healing.
3. A substance that holds parts together or causes agglutination.
To accomplish, or be subjected to, agglutination.
1. The process of union in the healing of a wound.
2. The clumping together in suspension of antigen-bearing cells, micro-organisms, or particles in the presence of specific antibodies (agglutinins).
Promoting adhension or agglutination.
Any substance that, acting as an antigen, stimulates the production of agglutinin.
1. An antibody that causes clumping or agglutination of the bacteria or other cells that either stimulated the formation of the agglutinin, or contain immunologically similar, reactive antigen (synonyms: agglutinating antibody, immune,).
2. A substance, other than a specific agglutinating antibody, that causes organic particles to agglutinate, commonly qualified, e.g., plant agglutinin.
An antigenic substance that stimulates the formation of specific agglutinin, that, under certain conditions, causes agglutination of cells that contain the antigen or particles coated with the antigen.
Capable of causing the production of an agglutinin.
Readily agglutinating; readily undergoing pronounced agglutination.
Obsolete term for a magnifying glass or a simple system of lenses used to observe agglutination in vitro.
A specific antibody that inhibits or destroys the action of an agglutinin.
A substance (including an antibody) that inhibits or prevents hemagglutination.
1. Nonspecific agglutination or clumping together of cells (e.g., bacteria, erythrocytes) due to physical-chemical factors.
2. The agglutination of an individual's red blood cells in his own serum, as a consequence of a specific autoantibody.
An antibody that agglutinates bacteria.
A substance that per se does not agglutinate an antigen, but does result in agglutination of antigen that is appropriately coated with univalent antibody.
An agglutinin that occurs naturally in the blood of a person or an animal, without the injection of a stimulating antigen or the passive transfer of an antibody.
An isoantibody that causes agglutination of cells of genetically different members of the same species.
An antibody that agglutinates white blood cells.
An agglomeration of particles in solution that does not involve antigen-antibody combination.
Agglutination of spermatozoa.
A diagnostic method in relation to the mycoses, based upon the fact that the blood of patients with diseases caused by fungi contains specific agglutinins that cause clumping of the spores of these organisms.
