In the mouse uterus, lactoferrin is a major estrogen-inducible uterine secretory protein, and its expression correlates directly with the period of peak epithelial cell proliferation. In this study, we examine the expression of lactoferrin mRNA and protein in human endometrium, endometrial hyperplasias, and adenocarcinomas using immunohistochemistry,(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)
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)
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)
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, roots, burned leaves and rotten stems from eight trees were processed by the Smith and Furcolow's(More)
