Ulnar-mammary syndrome (UMS) is a pleiotropic disorder affecting limb, apocrine-gland, tooth, hair, and genital development. Mutations that disrupt the DNA-binding domain of the T-box gene, TBX3, have been demonstrated to cause UMS. However, the 3' terminus of the open reading frame (ORF) of TBX3 was not identified, and mutations were detected in only two(More)
Mutations in Tbx3 are responsible for ulnar-mammary syndrome (UMS), an autosomal dominant disorder affecting limb, tooth, hair, apocrine gland and genital development. Tbx3 is a member of a family of transcription factors that share a highly conserved DNA-binding domain known as the T-domain. UMS-causing mutations in Tbx3 have been found at numerous sites(More)
The chromosome replication patterns of the established cell line CHO have been examined and compared with those of normal primary Chinese hamster cells, using the BudR-Hoechst fluorescence technique developed by LATT (1973). The results of this study indicate that the majority of CHO chromosomes replicate normally. There are four clear-cut exceptions to(More)
The tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-1 (TIMP-1) is an inhibitor of the extracellular matrix-degrading metalloproteinases. We characterized response elements that control TIMP-1 gene expression. One contains a binding site that selectively binds c-Fos and c-Jun in vitro and confers a response to multiple AP-1 family members in vivo. Adjacent to this is(More)
Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase (TIMP) is one of a family of metalloproteinase inhibitors and a major interstitial inhibitor of collagenase. Transcription of the TIMP gene is induced by such diverse agents as viruses, phorbol esters, serum, and growth factors. We have previously assigned the regulatory elements responsible for induction of(More)
Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) for polymorphic markers is a frequently occurring event in some tumors, reflecting the role of allele loss in the development of these tumors. We have determined LOH in 38 cases of Wilms tumor for the 2 known loci on chromosome arm 11p and for a newly detected locus on chromosome arm 16q. Only 7 of the 38 tumors studied showed(More)
The Wilms tumor locus on chromosome 11p13 has been mapped to a region defined by overlapping, tumor-specific deletions. Complementary DNA clones representing transcripts of 2.5 (WIT-1) and 3.5 kb (WIT-2) mapping to this region were isolated from a kidney complementary DNA library. Expression of WIT-1 and WIT-2 was restricted to kidney and spleen. RNase(More)
Stable mutants resistant to the toxic anion chromate have been isolated from a variety of Chinese hamster cell lines. The mechanism of chromate toxicity is not known, but it must involve internalization via the sulfate transport pathway. All mutant lines had a defective sulfate transport system, showing a 10-fold reduction in the rate of uptake of(More)
Multi-channel MAC protocols have recently obtained considerable attention in wireless networking research because they promise to increase capacity of wireless networks significantly by exploiting multiple frequency bands. In this paper, we do a comparison between IEEE 802.11 and IEEE 802.15.4 and investigate the performance between both using simulations(More)
Somatic cell hybrids heterozygous at the emetine resistance locus (emtr/emt+) or the chromate resistance locus (chrr/chr+) are known to segregate the recessive drug resistance phenotype at high frequency. We have examined mechanisms of segregation in Chinese hamster cell hybrids heterozygous at these two loci, both of which map to the long arm of Chinese(More)
