Using monoclonal antibodies we have localized a polypeptide, appearing on gel electrophoresis with a Mr of approximately 38,000 and a pI of approximately 5.6, to the granular component of the nucleoli of Xenopus laevis oocytes and a broad range of cells from various species. The protein (NO38) also occurs in certain distinct nucleoplasmic particles but is(More)
The previously characterized monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) A1, A69, B1, and A20 are directed against assembled or nonassembled adeno-associated virus type 2 (AAV-2) capsid proteins (A. Wistuba, A. Kern, S. Weger, D. Grimm, and J. A. Kleinschmidt, J. Virol. 71:1341-1352, 1997). Here we describe the linear epitopes of A1, A69, and B1 which reside in VP1, VP2,(More)
The formation of daughter nuclei and the reformation of nucleolar structures was studied after microinjection of antibodies to RNA polymerase I into dividing cultured cells (PtK2). The fate of several nucleolar proteins representing the three main structural subcomponents of the nucleolus was examined by immunofluorescence and electron microscopy. The(More)
We present a comparative study on epitope mapping of four monoclonal antibodies directed against four different antigens using alternative phage display techniques and peptide scanning: mAb215 reacts with the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II, mAbBp53-11 with the tumor suppressor protein p53, mAbGDO5 with the Hantaan virus glycoprotein G2 and mAbL13F3(More)
We aimed at demonstrating non-inferiority of bortezomib/cyclophosphamide/dexamethasone (VCD) compared to bortezomib/doxorubicin/dexamethasone (PAd) induction therapy with respect to very good partial response rates or better (⩾VGPR) in 504 newly diagnosed, transplant-eligible multiple myeloma patients. VCD was found to be non-inferior to PAd with respect to(More)
After microinjection of antibodies against RNA polymerase I into the nuclei of cultured rat kangaroo (PtK2) and rat (RVF-SMC) cells alterations in nucleolar structure and composition were observed. These were detected by electron microscopy and double-label immunofluorescence microscopy using antibodies to proteins representative of the three major(More)
Epitope mapping with mono- or polyclonal antibodies has so far been done either by dissecting the antigens into overlapping polypeptides in the form of recombinantly expressed fusion proteins, or by synthesizing overlapping short peptides, or by a combination of both methods. Here, we report an alternative method which involves the generation of random gene(More)
Small nucleolus-related bodies which occur in the nucleoplasm of "micronuclei" lacking nucleolar organizers have been studied by immunofluorescence microscopy. These bodies stained specifically with three different antibodies directed against proteins that are normally associated with the dense fibrillar component of functional nucleoli, but not with(More)
