Cell diversity and organization in the neural tube depend on the integration of extrinsic signals acting along orthogonal axes. These are believed to specify distinct cellular identities by triggering all-or-none changes in expression of combinations of transcription factors. Under the influence of a common dorsoventral signal, sonic hedgehog, and distinct(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate T-cadherin expression at the early developmental stages of the mouse embryo. Using in situ hybridization and immunofluorescent staining of whole embryos in combination with confocal microscopy, we found that T-cadherin expression is detected in the developing brain, starting with the E8.75 stage, and in the(More)
Cochliobolic acid (1), a novel biologically active natural product, is produced by submerged fermentation of Cochliobolus lunatus. Compound 1 was determined to be a novel polyketide possessing a substituted tetrahydrofuran ring, a conjugated polyene chain and a 1,2-diketone moiety, by interpretation of NMR, MS, and UV/vis spectroscopic data. Compound 1(More)
A model system was developed to allow investigation of the frequency at which clastogenic and/or mutagenic events occur in situ in a transplantable murine fibrosarcoma tumour (MC1A-C1) compared with in vitro culture. The marker selected for detecting these events was the X-linked hprt (hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase) gene. We found that the(More)
