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)
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)
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)
We have identified and cloned a human gene (TBX2) that exhibits strong sequence homology within a putative DNA binding domain to the drosophila optomotor-blind (omb) gene and lesser homology to the DNA binding domain of the murine brachyury or T gene. Unlike omb, which is expressed in neural tissue, or T, which is not expressed in adult animals, TBX2 is(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)
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)
Genetic alterations in tumor suppressor genes are believed to play an important role in the initiation of childhood and adult malignancies. Tumor-specific loss of heterozygosity for particular chromosomal regions has provided the starting point for the cloning of different tumor suppressor genes, including the Wilms tumor predisposing gene, WT1, at(More)
The expression of the Wilms tumor suppressor gene WT1 is largely restricted to elements of the developing urogenital system. In the fetal kidney, WT1 transcripts are present at low levels in the condensing mesenchyme and at much higher levels in differentiating glomerular epithelium and are not detected in other mesenchymal-derived epithelial structures(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)
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)
