B-lymphocyte-induced nuclear maturation protein 1 (BLIMP1) was previously reported to define a sebaceous gland (SG) progenitor population in the epidermis. However, the recent identification of multiple stem cell populations in the hair follicle junctional zone has led us to re-evaluate its function. We show, in agreement with previous studies, that BLIMP1(More)
Although the sebaceous gland (SG) plays an important role in skin function, the mechanisms regulating SG differentiation and carcinoma formation are poorly understood. We previously reported that c-MYC overexpression stimulates SG differentiation. We now demonstrate roles for the androgen receptor (AR) and p53. MYC-induced SG differentiation was reduced in(More)
We have examined phosphatidylcholine transfer activity in lung-soluble fractions from six vertebrate species. There is a significant correlation between the amount of phosphatidylcholine transfer activity and both the alveolar surface area and surface active material. This suggested that phosphatidylcholine exchange proteins have a role in the lung(More)
