The Basic Helix-Loop-Helix Gene hesr2 Promotes Gliogenesis in Mouse Retina
Members of a subclass of hairy/Enhancer of split [E(spl)] homologs, calledhesr genes, are structurally related to another subclass of hairy/E(spl) homologs,Hes genes, which play an important role inExpand

Math6, a bHLH gene expressed in the developing nervous system, regulates neuronal versus glial differentiation
Background Whereas multiple basic helix‐loop‐helix (bHLH) genes are expressed in the developing nervous system, they account for the differentiation of only subsets of neurones, suggesting that thereExpand

Response of leukemic cells to the sequential combination of GM-CSF and G-CSF.
We designed two experiments using delayed stimulation by granulocyte/macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) or granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) with colony-type analysis in orderExpand

Effects of stem cell factor (SCF) on human marrow neutrophil, neutrophil/macrophage mixed, macrophage and eosinophil progenitor cell growth.
The effects of stem cell factor (SCF) on the subpopulations of granulocyte/macrophage colony-forming units (CFU-GM) were examined. Hematopoietic progenitor cells were enriched from normal adult boneExpand

Evolutionary conservation of the insulinoma gene rig and its possible function.
We have identified a gene, rig (rat insulinoma gene), that is activated in chemically induced rat insulinomas but not in normal pancreatic islets or in regenerating islets. In the present study, weExpand

Expression of the insulinoma gene rig during liver regeneration and in primary cultured hepatocytes.
We have isolated a novel gene, rig (rat insulinoma gene) from rat insulinomas. In the present study, rig was found to be expressed in rat regenerating liver and in primary cultured rat hepatocytes.Expand

Pathogenesis of Mucocutaneous Lesions in Behçet's Disease
Behcet's disease (BD) is characterized by recurrent oral aphthae, skin lesions, eye lesions, and genital ulceration. To determine the pathogenesis of BD, we performed histological andExpand

Presence of Propionibacterium acnes in blood components
BACKGROUND: Sterility testing, as part of the QC of blood components at the Japanese Red Cross Aichi Blood Center between April 1998 and March 2000, showed that 10 of 5568 tested blood componentsExpand
