The appearance of molecular differences between arterial and venous endothelial cells before circulation suggests that genetic factors determine these cell types. We find that vascular endothelial growth factor (vegf) acts downstream of sonic hedgehog (shh) and upstream of the Notch pathway to determine arterial cell fate. Loss of Vegf or Shh results in(More)
The authors have generated monoclonal antibodies to an extract of melanoma. When tested on a variety of fixed, embedded sections of malignant tumors, one antibody (HMB-45) reacted with 60 of 62 melanomas and none of 168 nonmelanomas (carcinomas, lymphomas, and sarcomas). The antibody reacts with junctional nevus cells but not intradermal nevi, and(More)
Aortic arch malformations are common congenital disorders that are frequently of unknown etiology. To gain insight into the factors that guide branchial aortic arch development, we examined the process by which these vessels assemble in wild type zebrafish embryos and in kurzschluss(tr12) (kus(tr12)) mutants. In wild type embryos, each branchial aortic arch(More)
A panel of monoclonal antibodies to human intermediate filament proteins was tested on an unselected series of 246 neoplasms. The antibody panel includes two different anti-cytokeratin antibodies, an anti-vimentin antibody, and an anti-neurofilament antibody (Gown and Vogel, Am J Pathol 114:309, 1984). The studies were done on Carnoy's or methacarn-fixed,(More)
 During a differential display-based screen for developmentally regulated genes in zebrafish, we have isolated a cDNA for zebrafish cathepsin L, termed catL. The gene shows abundant expression in the anteriormost cells of the head process which give rise to the polster and later to the hatching gland. Expression of catL persists in these tissues until(More)
We have previously identified three distinctive amino acid sequences from type IV collagen which specifically bound to heparin and also inhibited the binding of heparin to intact type IV collagen. One of these chemically synthesized domains, peptide Hep-I, has the sequence TAGSCLRKFSTM and originates from the a1(noncollagenous [NC1]) chain of type IV(More)
Monoclonal antibodies generated against different human intermediate filament (IF) proteins were assayed on fixed, embedded tissue by the biotin-avidin-immunoperoxidase method for evaluation of the tissue specificity of these antibodies. An antibody (43 beta E8) made to fibroblast IF protein stains mesenchymal tissue such as endothelium, histiocytes,(More)
DNA synthesis and cell division were measured in Swiss mouse 3T3 cells cultured in different concentrations of cell-free plasma-derived serum and increasing amounts of a platelet-derived growth factor. In plasma-derived serum alone, the cells were quiescent and they were arrested in the Go/G1 phase of the cell cycle. Addition of a platelet-derived growth(More)
The intermediate filament proteins of rhabdoid tumors of the kidney were investigated with a panel of monoclonal antibodies to different intermediate filament proteins. Rhabdoid tumor cells are decorated by an antivimentin antibody and by an antibody made against a 54-kilodalton (kd) cytokeratin from human hepatoma cells. The rhabdoid tumor cells fail to(More)
