We described previously the cell cycle- and microtubule-related functions of two splice isoforms of the centrosome spindle pole-associated protein (CSPP and CSPP-L). Here, we show that endogenous CSPP isoforms not only localize to centrosomes and the midbody in cycling cells but also extend to the cilia axoneme in postmitotic resting cells. They are(More)
One-third of all splenic marginal zone lymphomas (SMZL) use the IgH VH1-02 gene. These cases are usually not associated with hepatitis C virus infection. Of interest, the rearranged VH1-02 genes display similar complementarity determining regions 3, a finding confirmed by our study. The latter suggests that these SMZL may produce antibodies with similar(More)
Primary chronic cold agglutinin disease is a rare hemolytic disease mediated by monoclonal IGHV4-34-encoded cold agglutinins with a predominant specificity for the blood group antigen I. Bone marrow from 54 patients was studied to type the underlying lymphoproliferative disorder better. Bone marrow biopsies showed circumscribed intra-parenchymatous nodules(More)
The mutation status of genes involved in the NF-κB signaling pathway in splenic marginal zone lymphoma was examined. DNA sequence analysis of four genes was performed: CD79A, CD79B, CARD11, and MYD88 that are activated through BCR signaling or Toll-like and interleukin signaling. A single point mutation was detected in the CD79B gene (Y196H) in one of ten(More)
BACKGROUND Multiparameter flow cytometry allows the detection of minor monoclonal B-cell populations. Using this technique combined with morphology, we were struck by the presence of minor populations of small monoclonal B cells in bone marrows of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma in routine diagnostic samples and performed a systematic(More)
Monocytoid B cells are IgM(+) , IgD(-/+) , CD27(-) B cells, localized in the perisinusoidal area of the lymph node. These cells are especially prominent in infections such as those caused by toxoplasma and HIV. The ontogeny of monocytoid B cells with respect to B cell maturation is incompletely known. We analysed clonal expansion, somatic hypermutation and(More)
Protein disulphide isomerases belong to the thioredoxin superfamily of protein-thiol oxidoreductases that have two double-cysteine redox-active sites and take part in protein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). We report here the cloning of a Pichia pastoris genomic DNA fragment (2919 bp) that encodes the full length of a protein disulphide isomerase(More)
