Noninvasive diagnosis of renal-allograft rejection by measurement of messenger RNA for perforin and granzyme B in urine.
BACKGROUND Acute rejection is a serious and frequent complication of renal transplantation, and its diagnosis is contingent on the invasive procedure of allograft biopsy. A noninvasive diagnosticExpand

A novel mechanism for telomere size control in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
One of the central requirements for eukaryotic chromosome stability is the maintenance of the simple sequence tracts at telomeres. In this study, we use genetic and physical assays to reveal theExpand

Differential regulation of transforming growth factor beta and interleukin 2 genes in human T cells: demonstration by usage of novel competitor DNA constructs in the quantitative polymerase chain
The regulation of mRNA encoding transforming growth factor beta (TGF- beta) and interleukin 2 (IL-2) in normal human T cells was explored using novel competitor DNA constructs in the quantitativeExpand

Insulin-like growth factor-1 attenuates the detrimental impact of nonocclusive coronary artery constriction on the heart.
Coronary artery narrowing (CAN) induces tissue injury, which may involve myocyte necrosis and apoptosis. Insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1 may counteract cell death, modifying the detrimentalExpand

Characterization of the antinociceptive properties of cimetidine and a structural analog.
The antinociceptive and pharmacological properties of the H2 receptor antagonist cimetidine and a novel cimetidine analog, SKF92374, were characterized. On both the hot-plate and tail-flickExpand

Laser pulse-induced photochemical strand cleavage of site-specifically and covalently modified (+)-anti-benzo[a]pyrene diol epoxide-oligonucleotide adducts.
The specificity of the laser pulse-induced photocleavage method [Boles, T. C., and Hogan, M. E. (1986) Biochemistry 25, 3039] for detecting the sites of covalent binding of benzo[a]pyrene diolExpand
