Characteristic of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is the presence of the chimeric p210(bcr-abl) protein possessing elevated protein tyrosine kinase activity relative to normal c-abl tyrosine kinase. Hematopoietic progenitors isolated from CML patients in the chronic phase contain a constitutively tyrosine-phosphorylated protein that migrates at 62 kDa by(More)
Individual political preferences as expressed, for instance, in votes or donations are fundamental to democratic societies. However, the relevance of deliberative processing for political preferences has been highly debated, putting automatic processes in the focus of attention. Based on this notion, the present study tested whether brain responses reflect(More)
The chronological history of the important discoveries leading to our present understanding of the essential clinical, biological, biochemical, and molecular features of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) are first reviewed, focusing in particular on abnormalities that are responsible for the massive myeloid expansion. CML is an excellent target for the(More)
The current report describes the molecular characterization of the human (the D4S234 locus) and mouse (the m234) homologs of a gene that was isolated during our genomic analysis of the Huntington disease gene region. Sequence comparisons of full-length cDNA clones revealed that the mouse and human homologs encoded evolutionarily conserved 21-kDa proteins(More)
The most primitive hematopoietic stem cell (HSC)/progenitor cell (PC) population reported to date is characterized as being Lin-CD34+CD38-CD90+CD45R. We have a long-standing interest in comparing the characteristics of hematopoietic progenitor cell populations enriched from normal subjects and patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). In order to(More)
