Retinoic acid (RA) induces P19 embryonal carcinoma cells to differentiate into neurons with the extension of neuritic processes. We used the P19 cell as a model system to elucidate the regulation of neurofilament (NF) expression. Four mammalian NF proteins, NF-66 (alpha-internexin), peripherin, NF-L and NF-M, and the neural-specific, growth-associated gene,(More)
Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), the 66 kDa neurofilament protein (NF-66), actin, the 27 kDa heat shock protein (HSP27) and the 70 kDa constitutive heat shock protein (HSC70) were analyzed in human fetal brain during the second trimester, from 10 to 24 gestational weeks (GW). By immunohistochemistry, cell-type specific localization of GFAP and NF-66(More)
We recently established primary cultures from dissociated second trimester human fetal brains using a novel spin seeding method and characterized cellular populations with distinct phenotypes in these cultures. Here, we report that these neural cultures can be dissociated to single-cell suspensions, sorted by size using flow cytometry and re-seeded to yield(More)
Scytalidium dimidiatum an opportunistic fungus for both man and Mangifera indica trees in Venezuela The purpose of this study was to confirm the presence of Scytalidium dimidiatum on Mangifera indica (mango) trees, in a plantation managed by a diabetic patient with a white grain mycetoma of the foot caused by the same fungus. Samples from necrotic apices,(More)
