The primary goal of this study was to determine the effects of prolonged space flight (180 days) on the structure and function of slow and fast fibres in human skeletal muscle. Biopsies were obtained from the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles of nine International Space Station crew members 45 days pre- and on landing day (R+0) post-flight. The main findings(More)
The identification of dominant acting proto-oncogenes in mammary tumors from mice and humans has highlighted a number of signal transduction pathways that have subsequently been shown to have a role in normal mammary growth and differentiation. Here we describe the use of two different transgenic mouse strategies to investigate the function of two of these(More)
A number of growth factors, growth factor receptors and cell cycle regulatory proteins have been implicated in the genesis of mammary carcinomas both in animal models as well as in human breast tumour samples. Studies on the development of the mammary gland has revealed that several of the proto-oncogenes, or their closely related gene-family members, have(More)
ERBB2 is a receptor tyrosine kinase present on the basolateral membrane of polarized epithelia and has important functions in organ development and tumorigenesis. Using mutagenic analyses and Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells, we have investigated the signals that regulate basolateral targeting of ERBB2. We show that basolateral delivery of ERBB2 is(More)
