Using a cadherin fraction from Xenopus tissue culture cells as an immunogen, two monoclonal antibodies were obtained that allowed the characterization of two distinct cadherins in the Xenopus embryo. The two cadherins differ in molecular weight, in their time of appearance during development and in their spatial pattern of expression. One of the antigens(More)
A pool of beta 1-integrin, ready to be inserted into the cleavage membranes, is present in the cytoplasm of the Xenopus egg, while its plasma membrane is devoid of this membrane protein (Gawantka et al., 1992). The underlying mechanisms that lead to this specific pattern of beta 1-integrin distribution in the egg have been investigated. beta 1-Integrin is(More)
Croton pullei var. glabrior Lanj. (Euphorbiaceae) is a liana, vastly distributed in the Amazonian Forest. In the folk medicine, several plants of the Croton genus have been used with therapeutic purposes in pathologies that involve painful and infl ammatory diseases which justify this work. The aim of this study was to investigate the antinociceptive and(More)
U-cadherin is a member of the cadherin family in Xenopus that participates in interblastomere adhesion in the early embryo from the first cleavage onwards. Though a maternal pool of U-cadherin is available in the egg, it is not present on the egg membrane (Angres et al., 1991. Development 111, 829-844). To assess the origin of this unexpected distribution(More)
Progressive tumor growth is regularly accompanied by changes in the cellular constituents of the immune system. Evidence suggests that soluble factors generated during tumor growth can affect the amount of granulocyte-macrophage progenitors. In vitro colony growth of progenitor cells may be an early indicator of the cellular changes associated with tumor(More)
Estudos fitoquímicos com as cascas do caule e com as folhas de Croton palanostigma Klotzsch (Euphorbiaceae) levaram ao isolamento do novo diterpeno clerodânico 8-epicordatina (2), além de éster metílico do ácido 12-oxohardwickiico (3), aparisthmano, cordatina (1), ácido ent-trachiloban18-óico, óxido de ent-13-epimanoila, óxido de ent-3-oxo-13-epimanoila,(More)
The importance of both granulocytes and macrophages in the response to Listeria monocytogenes infection make this infection a suitable choice to investigate the effects of Pluchea quitoc on hematopoiesis. A significant depletion of bone marrow granulocyte-macrophage progenitor cells (CFU-GM) was observed at 48 and 72 h after intraperitoneal infection of(More)
Es wird über eine akut verlaufende, vorwiegend extrapulmonale. (Leber-Milz-Lymphdrüsen-) Tuberkulose berichtet. Bei offenbar ungestörter Knochenmarksfunktion bestand eine hochgradige Leukopenie, anfänglich mit relativer Lymphocytose und Eosinophilie, später mit Linksverschiebung. Außerdem lag eine mäßige Thrombocytopenie und eine stark hypochrome Anämie(More)
