To understand the molecular basis of exocytosis in human neutrophils, the role of syntaxin 6 and SNAP-23 in neutrophil degranulation was examined. Human syntaxin 6 was cloned and identified as a 255-amino acid protein with a carboxy-terminal transmembrane region and two coiled-coil domains. Syntaxin 6 was localized mainly in the plasma membrane of human(More)
Syntaxins are major components of vesicle trafficking and their pattern of expression depends on the cell type. Using reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), cloning, and sequencing techniques, we have found that human neutrophils and neutrophil-differentiated HL-60 cells co-express syntaxins 1A, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, and 16. These genes(More)
Glycogen-rich clear cell (GRCC) is a rare subtype of breast carcinoma characterized by carcinoma cells containing an optically clear cytoplasm and intracytoplasmic glycogen. We present the case of a 55-year-old woman with a palpable mass in the right breast and clinical signs of locally advanced breast cancer (LABC). The diagnosis of GRCC carcinoma was(More)
Tetraspanin transmembrane proteins have a metastasis suppressor effect by acting as cell motility brakes in tumor cells. CD53 is a panleukocyte antigen that belongs to the tetra-span superfamily. Human neutrophils express high levels of CD53. We tested the hypothesis that this antigen level changes when cells are activated. Treatment of human neutrophils(More)
