Sentinel lymph node (SN) biopsy is part of the staging procedure in breast cancer patients. In this study, we compared an intraoperative tool named one-step nucleic acid amplification (OSNA) to our routine histological investigation. OSNA consists of a short homogenization step followed by amplification of cytokeratin (CK) 19 mRNA directly from the lysate.(More)
Dispersal during juvenile life stages drives the life-history evolution and dynamics of many marine vertebrate populations. However, the movements of juvenile organisms, too small to track using conventional satellite telemetry devices, remain enigmatic. For sea turtles, this led to the paradigm of the 'lost years' since hatchlings disperse widely with(More)
Writing parallel programs eeciently is still a problematic issue due to the lack of a uniform and integrated tool support. A new project at LRR-TUM works towards changing this situation for the most popular programming environment on workstation clusters: for PVM. The Tool-set for PVM will comprise a set of integrated tools, consisting of a debugger, a(More)
Without genetic variation, species cannot cope with changing environments, and evolution does not proceed. In endangered species, adaptive potential may be eroded by decreased population sizes and processes that further reduce gene flow such as philopatry and local adaptations. Here, we focused on the philopatric and endangered loggerhead sea turtle(More)
BACKGROUND The death ligand, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL), induces apoptosis and non-apoptotic signaling in some tumor cells. The purpose of this study was to investigate the roles of the pro-apoptotic TRAIL receptors, TRAIL-R1 and TRAIL-R2, as well as Bcl-xL and TRAF2 in TRAIL-induced expression of the(More)
The adenovirus is a non-enveloped DNA virus which may lead to severe diseases of the respiratory tract. In order to study the influence of virus infection on primary cultured peribronchial submucosal gland cells, we performed in vitro infection with human adenovirus type 3. Peribronchial submucosal glands are the main source of tracheobronchial mucus and,(More)

Mucins i Ml l 'si are high molecular weight membrane glycoproteins. The gene expression of MUCs (MUC1-MUC8) may change characteristi cally during malignant transformation of epithelial tissues. Total RNA was isolated from the four bladder cancer cell lines RT4, 647V, HT1376, and 486P (pathological gradings between Gl and G4) and 17 samples of transitional(More)
