The tissue-selective binding of the two principal bioactive forms of somatostatin, somatostatin-14 (SS-14) and somatostatin-28 (SS-28), their ability to modulate cAMP-dependent and -independent regulation of post-receptor events to different degrees and the documentation of specific labelling of SS receptor subtypes with SS-28 but not SS-14 in discrete(More)
To determine whether adult kidney papillary label-retaining cells (pLRCs) are specialized precursors, we analyzed their transcription profile. Among genes overexpressed in pLRCs, we selected candidate genes to perform qPCR and immunodetection of their encoded proteins. We found that Zfyve27, which encodes protrudin, identified a subpopulation of pLRCs. With(More)
This report questions the nature of stimulation in the lymphoblast-induced autologous mixed leukocyte reaction (AMLR). Using immobilized phytohemagglutinin (PHA) and pokeweed mitogen (PWM), we show that the AMLR generated with PHA lymphoblasts (PHA X AMLR) was not significantly different from the AMLR generated with untreated stimulators. The PWM(More)
