A hyaluronectin (HN)-like antigen was found in rat O-2A progenitors and oligodendrocytes, as well as in Schwann cells and in their culture medium. The HN-like antigen secreted in culture supernatants had a higher molecular mass than HN extracted from rat brain at acidic pH. In vitro the secreted HN-like antigen was spontaneously and slowly degraded into(More)
We describe here two new human urothelial carcinoma cell lines, CAL 29 and CAL 185, established from two patients with high-grade tumours and which display very different properties in vitro. We have shown that CAL 29 cells were tumorigenic in mice and expressed characteristic features of both cell scattering and transition from epithelial to mesenchymal(More)
Hyaluronan (HA) is a polymerized nonsulfated extracellular matrix glycosaminoglycan that may be involved in brain development. We have tested the expression of HA and the HA-binding protein hyaluronectin (HN) in glial cell cultures from newborn rat brain. HA was secreted into the culture medium by type 1 astrocytes in the first stages of the primary(More)
Anti-glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) monoclonal antibody has been obtained by fusing SP2/O myeloma cells with splenic cells from mice immunized with human GFAP. It belongs to the IgG1 class and it recognizes an epitope on GFAP which is shared by each fragment of the protein. Immunohistological studies show that the epitope characterized is absolutely(More)
Anti-NSA3 antiserum was found to react with many kinds of benign and malignant tumours, as well as foetal skin and intestinal extracts. The corresponding antigens isolated from nervous tissue, benign breast adenoma, and a fibrosarcoma were compared. Immunoprecipitation cannot distinguish between these antigens, and their amino-acid contents were comparable.(More)
