The expression and function of a new cytokine-induced endothelial cell adhesion protein, vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1), was characterized in vitro by using a monoclonal antibody, MoAb 4B9, which recognizes a functional epitope on this protein. As determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and radioimmunoprecipitation of metabolically(More)
Vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) and endothelial-leukocyte adhesion molecule-1 (ELAM-1) are adhesive proteins induced on endothelium by cytokines. We examined the contribution of these adhesive proteins to human peripheral blood monocyte adherence to endothelium using transfected Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells stably expressing these proteins(More)
The LECCAMs are a family of cell adhesion molecules implicated in certain inflammatory processes. ELAM-1, a LECCAM found on the surface of activated endothelial cells, can mediate adhesion of neutrophils, monocytes, and certain cell lines to endothelial cells in vitro. No ligand for any LECCAM has yet been fully characterized. Here we report the cloning of(More)
Congenital diaphragmatic hernias (CDHs) presenting beyond the neonatal period are a rare and unusual problem; they occurred in 11 of 83 children at our institution. Two discrete clinical groups were apparent: (1) younger children, with mainly respiratory symptoms; and (2) older children with gastrointestinal (GI) complaints. Chest roentgenograms suggested(More)
Cytochrome c552, which has been implicated as an electron carrier for nitrite reduction by Escherichia coli, has been separated from NADH-nitrite oxidoreductase activity. The cytochrome is therefore not required for the reduction of nitrite by NADH in vitro. Nevertheless, some mutants which were selected by their inability to use nitrite as a nitrogen(More)
Vascular cell adhesion molecule, VCAM-1, is an adhesion molecule expressed on activated endothelium thought to play a role in leukocyte migration to sites of inflammation. VCAM-1 adheres to leukocytes through the VLA-4 integrin. Recombinant soluble VCAM-1 (rsVCAM) and anti-CD3 mAb OKT3 were utilized to address the role of the VCAM-1/VLA-4 pathway in(More)
Relative merits of three methods of diaphragmatic hernia repair were evaluated in growing animals. Twenty-five puppies underwent laparotomy. In four controls, the left hemidiaphragm was incised and sutured primarily. In the remaining dogs, it was partially resected sparing the phrenic nerve. The defects were repaired in six with silastic sheeting, in eight(More)
ELAM1 is a leukocyte adhesion molecule induced on human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) by inflammatory cytokines. Balb/C mice were immunized with COS cells transiently expressing cell-surface ELAM1 after transfection with ELAM1 cDNA. After fusion, ELAM1-specific monoclonal antibodies (Mabs) were identified by selective adhesion to(More)
Endothelial leukocyte adhesion molecule 1 (ELAM1) is a leukocyte adhesion molecule induced on human venular endothelium in vitro and in vivo by inflammatory stimuli. A truncated cDNA for ELAM1 has been constructed, stably expressed in Chinese hamster ovary cells, and the secreted recombinant soluble form of ELAM1 (rsELAM1) purified to homogeneity by(More)
BACKGROUND Hypercalcemia is a serious and not infrequent complication of malignant diseases; precise information about the incidence of hypercalcemia is not readily available. The study was designed to determine the incidence of hypercalcemia in patients with cancer. METHODS Retrospective analysis was done of laboratory data from 7667 patients registered(More)
