Using a rapid single-step affinity chromatography procedure we have isolated the unactivated estrogen receptor from bovine uterus. Results of sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and Western analyses for protein extracts recovered from affinity chromatography of receptor cytosols, either preincubated or untreated with estradiol, suggest(More)
Alterations of the p53 gene and the p53 protein are common in a wide spectrum of human malignancies. In several tumor types, p53 gene mutation and/or p53 protein overexpression correlate with a more clinically aggressive phenotype as judged by worse patient survival. This has not been clearly demonstrated to be the case in colorectal cancer. Herein, we(More)
Experience with renovascular reconstruction at the authors' institution over the past 16 years has been reviewed. A total of 76 patients underwent surgical intervention for renovascular disease during that time. This included 62 patients with atherosclerosis and 11 with fibromuscular hyperplasia. Indications for intervention were uncontrolled hypertension(More)
Immunohistochemical (IHC) detection of p53 protein was compared with the presence of p53 gene mutation in many colorectal (n = 100), breast (n = 92), endometrial (n = 122), and gastric (n = 116) carcinomas. Two commercially available antibodies, DO7 and CM1, were used for IHC analysis of paraffin-embedded tissue sections. Screening for gene mutations in(More)
Our study was undertaken to determine the prognostic significance of several common genetic alterations observed in colorectal carcinomas. We have previously analysed loss of heterozygosity of the MCC, APC, p53 and DCC tumour suppressor gene loci as well as p53 gene mutations and protein over-expression in a series of 100 Dukes' stage B and C colorectal(More)
The aim of our study was to examine the prognostic significance of p53 protein accumulation and gene mutation in a series of 116 gastric carcinomas from a low incidence population. Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumour sections were used to investigate p53 protein accumulation by immunostaining with monoclonal antibody (MAb) DO-7 and p53 gene mutation by(More)
The presence of inactivating mutations in the transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) type II receptor (RII) gene in the colon cancer suggests that it may behave like a tumour suppressor gene. RII is mutated in the majority of colon tumours exhibiting widespread microsatellite instability, a characteristic generally referred to as the replication error(More)
We used Southern blot analysis and polymerase chain reaction-based techniques to examine deletions of tumour suppressor gene loci in 91 primary colorectal tumours. The tumour suppressor genes studied were MCC and APC on chromosome 5q, p53 on chromosome 17p, DCC on chromosome 18q, and the putative suppressor gene nm23-H1 on chromosome 17q. The most frequent(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is now the accepted therapy for end-stage chronic liver disease. Long-term survival is now expected in the majority of patients and, consequently, disease recurrence has emerged as a major concern. Our aim was to document the rate of disease recurrence after liver transplantation for conditions other(More)
The replication error phenotype (RER+) represents an important new form of genetic alteration characterized by widespread instability in repetitive nucleotide sequences. The aim of this study was to compare the features of RER+ gastric tumours with those of RER+ colonic tumours. RER status was determined by analysis of size alterations in the BAT-26(More)
