All-trans retinoic acid (RA) has been shown to enhance subepidermal repair in photoaged hairless mice. The current study assesses the effects of RA on the glycosaminoglycan (GAG) content in irradiated and nonirradiated mouse skin. Mice were exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) for 10 wk, after which they were treated either with 0.05% RA or with an(More)
1. Artery wall proteoglycans-lipoprotein lipase binding characteristics were studied using bovine milk 125I-labelled lipoprotein lipase (LPL) and chondroitin sulphate-dermatan sulphate proteoglycans (PGs) purified from pig aorta. 2. The binding process was studied either by a soluble assay (gel filtration) or by an immobilized proteoglycan assay (ELISA). 3.(More)
The effect of dibutyryl cyclic AMP and theophylline on lipoprotein lipase secretion was investigated after a 24 h pretreatment of human monocyte-derived macrophages. Both the effectors decreased in a dose-dependent manner the enzyme activity recovered in the culture medium. The decrease in lipoprotein lipase activity appeared to be related to reduced enzyme(More)
A decrease in the protein kinase C immunoreactivity and an altered protein phosphorylation have been reported in patients with Alzheimer's disease, but discordant results have been obtained from determinations of protein kinase C activity. By assaying the calcium- and phospholipid-dependent phosphorylation of a lysine-rich histone after detergent(More)
The effect of UVB exposure on the distribution and synthesis of dermal proteoglycans was measured in the skin of hairless mice. Two groups of mice were included: one was irradiated for 10 weeks; the other was kept as control. After intraperitoneal injection of sodium 35-S-sulfate, punch biopsies were taken for histology and proteoglycans were extracted from(More)
BACKGROUND In conjunction with the European cohort study among asphalt workers coordinated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), we studied the mortality of 15,011 French men who were followed for 17 years for a total of 175,062 persons-years. This group contained 2,506 subjects who had ever been employed as asphalt workers: they(More)
