The relationship between the turnover of inositol phospholipids (PtdIns) and the growth and differentiation of normal murine keratinocytes in culture was studied. Addition of myo-[U-14C]inositol to freshly plated cells resulted in a linear incorporation of radiolabel into the inositol phospholipids of the proliferating basal cells in culture during the(More)
The origin of arachidonic acid (AA) found in the epidermis is not known. Two possibilities exist: either de novo synthesis within the epidermal keratinocyte, or transport of AA formed at distant tissue sites. The current study examined the ability of cultured murine and human keratinocytes to metabolize exogenously added linoleic acid (LA). Conversion of(More)
Exclusive π(0) electroproduction at a beam energy of 5.75 GeV has been measured with the Jefferson Lab CLAS spectrometer. Differential cross sections were measured at more than 1800 kinematic values in Q(2), x(B), t, and ϕ(π), in the Q(2) range from 1.0 to 4.6  GeV(2), -t up to 2  GeV(2), and x(B) from 0.1 to 0.58. Structure functions σ(T)+ϵσ(L), σ(TT), and(More)
We report the first measurement of the transverse momentum dependence of double-spin asymmetries in semi-inclusive production of pions in deep-inelastic scattering off the longitudinally polarized proton. Data have been obtained using a polarized electron beam of 5.7 GeV with the CLAS detector at the Jefferson Lab (JLab). Modulations of single spin(More)
The in vitro incubation of murine keratinocytes in the presence of 1 alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 enhanced the rapid hydrolysis of the prelabeled keratinocyte polyphosphoinositides (polyPtdIns) when compared to untreated cells. The rapid hydrolysis of the polyPtdIns and the release of the inositol phosphates (particularly InsP3 and InsP2) precede the onset(More)
The incorporation of precursor 14C-myoinositol into the three cellular inositol phospholipids (PtdIns, PtdInsP, and PtdInsP2) of cultured, rapidly proliferating keratinocytes is significantly enhanced by the exogenous addition of a high concentration (1 X 10(-7) M) of all-trans retinoic acid or its analog 13-Cis analog, whereas a similar incubation with a(More)
The availability of methods for the in vitro cultivation of keratinocytes has spawned numerous studies utilizing these systems to analyze epidermal biochemical pathways, e.g., eicosanoid production. To determine whether these culture systems are indeed valid models for studies of eicosanoid products, we analyzed the fatty acid (FA) composition, especially(More)
Because of their long lifetimes, the ω and ϕ mesons are the ideal candidates for the study of possible modifications of the in-medium meson-nucleon interaction through their absorption inside the nucleus. During the E01-112 experiment at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, the mesons were photoproduced from 2H, C, Ti, Fe, and Pb targets.(More)
