Molecular characterization of the human macrophage mannose receptor: demonstration of multiple carbohydrate recognition-like domains and phagocytosis of yeasts in Cos-1 cells
The macrophage mannose receptor is an integral membrane protein expressed on the surface of tissue macrophages. After ligation of mannose-rich glycoconjugates or pathogens, the receptor mediatesExpand

Patterns of junctional communication during development of the early amphibian embryo.
Cell-cell communication through gap junctions was examined in Xenopus laevis embryos between the 16-cell and early blastula stages using Lucifer Yellow, Fluorescein, lead EDTA and dicyanoargentate asExpand

Reduced gap junctional communication is associated with the lethal condition characteristic of DDK mouse eggs fertilized by foreign sperm.
Communication through gap junctions was examined in 8-cell zygotes generated by fertilization of eggs of the DDK inbred strain of mice with spermatozoa of the C3H strain. These zygotes spontaneouslyExpand

The role of gap junctions in patterning of the chick limb bud.
The role of gap junctional communication during patterning of the chick limb has been investigated. Affinity-purified antibodies raised against rat liver gap junctional proteins were used to blockExpand

Low intracellular pH is involved in the early embryonic death of DDK mouse eggs fertilized by alien sperm
Intracellular pH was measured in normal 8‐cell stage mouse embryos and in embryos from a cross between DDK females and C3H males. DDK/C3H embryos display the DDK syndrome and spontaneously begin toExpand

Gap junctional communication during neuromuscular junction formation
We have tested whether gap junctions form between nerve and muscle during their initial contact, before establishing the chemical synapse. Embryonic Xenopus stage 18-20 myotomes and neural tubes wereExpand

Role of organic matter in growth of a vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus in soil
Vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi can grow saprophytically in soil. Results show that organic matter is an important factor in this process.

Colonization of organic matter by vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi
Glomus mosseae and G. caledonium were shown to survive as hyphae within peat fragments. Such colonization in soil may account for the saprophytic ability of some mycorrhizal fungi.

The relationship of gap junctions and compaction in the preimplantation mouse embryo.
In the mouse embryo, gap junctions first appear at the 8-cell stage as compaction is about to take place. Compaction of the embryo is important for the differentiation of the first two cell types;Expand
