We utilised the retrograde transport machinery of neurones to deliver naked plasmid DNA into the central nervous system. A 5.4-kb fragment of the glycine receptor (GlyR) alpha1 subunit gene was cloned and used to drive the expression of a construct encoding for the enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP). Injections of the plasmid DNA in the tongue of(More)
Sardinian population can be instrumental in defining the molecular basis of cancer, using the identity-by-descent method. We selected seven Sardinian breast cancer families originating from the northern-central part of the island with multiple affected members in different generations. We genotyped 106 members of the seven families and 20 control nuclear(More)
Hormonal therapy is the preferred systemic treatment for recurrent or metastatic, post-menopausal hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer. Previous studies have shown that there is no cross-resistance between exemestane and reversible aromatase inhibitors. Exposure to hormonal therapy does not hamper later response to chemotherapy. Patients with locally(More)
The development and dynamics of thyrotropin (TSH), adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), prolactin (PRL), and growth hormone (GH) cells have been studied using immunocytochemical techniques and rabbit antisera, raised against the relevant human hormone, in the pars distalis of Bufo arenarum larvae at different stages of development. The four types of cells(More)
The neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM), a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily that promotes Ca(2+)-independent cell-cell adhesion, is expressed as various isoforms generated by alternative splicing. In this study, the expression of the 180 kDa isoform (180-NCAM), total NCAM (180, 140 and 120 kDa isoforms) and the polysialic acid moiety of NCAM (PSA)(More)
