Protein kinase C betaII (PKC betaII) has been implicated in proliferation of the intestinal epithelium. To investigate PKC betaII function in vivo, we generated transgenic mice that overexpress PKC betaII in the intestinal epithelium. Transgenic PKC betaII mice exhibit hyperproliferation of the colonic epithelium and an increased susceptibility to(More)
The role of cell-specific metabolism in benzene toxicity was examined in both murine and human bone marrow. Hemopoietic progenitor cells and stromal cells are important control points for regulation of hemopoiesis. We show that the selective toxicity of hydroquinone at the level of the macrophage in murine bone marrow stroma may be explained by a high(More)
BACKGROUND Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-mediated tumor immunity against major histocompatibility antigen class II-negative tumors requires help from CD4(+) T-cells. The major antigen presenting cells for CD4(+) cell activation are dendritic cells. Studies in mice and humans have demonstrated the potent capacity of these cells to induce specific antitumor(More)
