The Philadelphia chromosome, widely implicated in human leukaemia, is the result of a reciprocal translocation t(9;22) (q34;q11) in which the abl oncogene located at 9q34 is translocated to chromosome 22q11, where it is fused head-to-tail with 5' exons of the bcr gene. In acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, some patients have a breakpoint within the major(More)
Recently, we demonstrated that adipose tissue plays an important role in retinol storage and retinol-binding protein (RBP) synthesis. Our data suggested that RBP expression in adipose tissue is dependent on the state of adipocyte differentiation. To examine this possibility, we explored the differentiation-dependent expression of RBP using BFC-1 beta(More)
Cells of the hemopoietic system arise by proliferation and differentiation of progenitor cells. This process begins with multipotential stem cells which can self-renew and also undergo progressive differentiation to progenitor cells committed to particular lineages, ultimately yielding mature blood cells (D. Metcalf and M. A. S. Moore, Haematopoietic Cells,(More)
To investigate whether specific T-cell populations are overrepresented in tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) in skin cancer, we determined the T-cell receptor (TCR) diversity in biopsy specimens of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Immunostaining of tissue sections indicated that the majority of T cells expressed alpha beta TCRs. To assess(More)
The immunogenetic analysis (IGA) on the staging bone marrow aspirates in 15 patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is reported. We found the sensitivity of IGA and morphologic examination in detecting bone marrow involvement by malignant lymphoma to be 91% and 82%, respectively. In 11 cases there was agreement between the morphologic findings and IGA. In(More)
The pathogenesis of Hodgkin's disease (HD) has been elusive largely because of the paucity of the Reed-Sternberg cells in comparison to large numbers of normal inflammatory cells in biopsy specimens. This report attempts to characterize Hodgkin's disease by studying subtypes with a high proportion of Reed-Sternberg cells and their variants. We found in 4(More)
