Apart from endothelial cells, the receptor tyrosine kinase TEK/Tie-2 is also expressed by primitive hematopoietic stem cells. While the role of this receptor and its ligand angiopoietin-1 (ang-1) during angiogenesis has been intensively studied before, little is known about their function in normal or malignant hematopoiesis. Recently several studies(More)
We report on the analysis of a murine anaplastic lymphoid cell line TS1G6, established recently by interleukin (IL)-9 transfection. TS1G6 revealed a highly characteristic pattern of large anaplastic cells with mononuclear, binuclear, or multinuclear cells resembling Hodgkin (H) or Sternberg-Reed (SR) cells. This cell line is tumorigenous after injection of(More)
The chemokine CCL23 is primarily expressed in cells of the myeloid lineage but little information about its regulation is available. In this study, it is demonstrated that IL-4 and IL-13 induced CCL23 expression in human peripheral blood monocytes. GM-CSF had no effect on its own but synergized with IL-4, but not IL-13. CCL23 promoter reporter gene(More)
L82, a novel anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) cell line was established from the pleural effusion of a 24-year-old patient with recurrent ALCL. L82 cells showed the typical morphologic features of ALCL cells with irregular, often indented, nuclear profiles, prominent nucleoli, and abundant cytoplasm. The immunoprofile of L82 corresponds to that seen(More)
