In this review, we discuss the recent identification of ARF-BP1 (also known as Mule, UREB1, E3(histone), LASU1, and HectH9). ARF-BP1, a HECT domain-containing E3 ubiquitin ligase, interacts with ARF and p53. Its ubiquitin ligase activity is inhibited by ARF. Inactivation of ARF-BP1 stabilised p53 and induced apoptosis. Notably, inactivation of ARF-BP1 also(More)
Chronic administration of 17beta-oestradiol (via drinking water) or the oral contraceptive Enovid (norethynodrel and mestranol) (0-1 mg injected s.c. twice weekly) to nulliparous C3H/HeJ female mice, beginning at one month of age and terminating at 20 months (17beta-oestradiol) or 22 months (Enovid), significantly increased the incidence of mammary tumours(More)
Mammary tumours were induced in 3 groups of male Long-Evans rats by a series of 6 fortnightly gastric intubations of 7,12-dimethylbenzanthracene. Two weeks before the initial carcinogen treatment one group of rats was grafted with 3 pituitary homografts underneath the kidney capsule of each recipient (hyperprolactinaemia). A second group, 2 weeks before the(More)
The tumor line CAC-8, is a serially transplantable adenocarcinoma maintained in nude mice which originated from a hypercalcemic dog. Nude mice with CAC-8 developed a syndrome of humoral hypercalcemia of malignancy. CAC-8 contained a protein factor which stimulated adenylate cyclase of bone and kidney cells in vitro. The adenylate cyclase (AC) of rat(More)
