The present studies examined the temporal sequence of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) gene expression and the cellular sources of iNOS protein and of 3-nitrotyrosine, as a marker of production of nitric oxide-derived reactive nitrogen intermediates during murine multi-stage carcinogenesis. Levels of iNOS mRNA in dorsal skin isolated from(More)
In both preclinical and clinical studies, cell transplantation of several cell types is used to promote repair of damaged organs and tissues. Nevertheless, despite the widespread use of such strategies, there remains little understanding of how the efficacy of cell therapy is regulated. We showed previously that augmentation of a unique, metabolically(More)
Cell therapy improves cardiac function. Few cells have been investigated more extensively or consistently shown to be more effective than c-kit sorted cells; however, c-kit expression is easily lost during passage. Here, our primary goal was to develop an improved method to isolate c-kit(pos) cells and maintain c-kit expression after passaging. Cardiac(More)
