The late cytoplasmic phases of human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) morphogenesis in cultured fibroblasts have been studied by transmission electron microscopy focusing attention on the relationship between the viral particles and host cell organelles. The results obtained largely reflect changes in cells subjected to sublethal injurious stimuli induced by many(More)
Rabbit antisera raised against the product of ORF UL 80 of human cytomegalovirus (CMV) genome (HindIII L fragment of AD169 strain) as well as IgM from acutely infected patients recognize an antigen of Mr 38 kDa. In the viral particle this antigen is bound via S-S bridge to a lower Mr compound to form a final complex of 62 kDa that is also recognized by(More)
A 42-year-old woman with an epithelioid granular cell leiomyoma of the right breast is reported. The cells were spindle to polygonal and displayed finely granular cytoplasm. The smooth muscle differentiation of this tumor was shown by the immunohistochemical positivity of the neoplastic cells with anti-alpha smooth actin and antidesmin antisera.(More)
Using specific monoclonal antibodies, we have localized two structural proteins (p65-69 and p28) of human cytomegalovirus in infected cells and in virions and/or virus-related particles by immunoelectron microscopy using protein A-gold. Protein p65-69 is present in some roundish structures in the nuclei, often in contact with the viroplasm, and in the(More)
The bone marrows of five patients with primary myelofibrosis at different stages of the disease have been studied. In the myelofibrotic bone marrow, associated with "reticulum cells", two other cell types have been identified, namely fibroblast-like and myofibroblast-like reticulum cells, as well as a spectrum of transitional forms. Our findings suggest(More)
T lymphocytic colony formation by peripheral lymphocytes separated by discontinuous albumin gradient centrifugation was evaluated in 8 patients with Philadelphia (Ph1)-positive chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Colonies were obtained using a liquid-on-agar culture system recently introduced (PHA overlayer-leukocyte feeder layer assay) which has been shown to(More)
Thirteen cases of elastofibroma have been studied by conventional light and electron microscopy, as well as by histochemistry and immunohistochemistry. By light microscopy elastinophilic material appeared as huge fibers crossing collagen bundles. Immunohistochemistry demonstrated a strong positivity for elastin in numerous and circumscribed areas of the(More)
The ultrastructural features of 8 human cardiac myxomas were analyzed and correlated with immunohistochemical data, with the aim to clarify the characteristics of the cell lines involved in the tumor genesis. Immunohistochemical studies were performed to detect the presence and the distribution of intracytoplasmic filaments (vimentin, desmin, actin, myosin)(More)
