Progress in the molecular diagnosis of facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy and correlation between the number of KpnI repeats at the 4q35 locus and clinical phenotype
Genotype analysis by using the p13E‐11 probe and other 4q35 polymorphic markers was performed in 122 Italian facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy families and 230 normal controls. EcoRI—BlnI doubleExpand

Nerve growth factor displays stimulatory effects on human skin and lung fibroblasts, demonstrating a direct role for this factor in tissue repair
Nerve growth factor (NGF) is a polypeptide which, in addition to its effect on nerve cells, is believed to play a role in inflammatory responses and in tissue repair. Because fibroblasts representExpand

Sequence homology between 4qter and 10qter loci facilitates the instability of subtelomeric KpnI repeat units implicated in facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy.
Physical mapping and in situ hybridization experiments have shown that a duplicated locus with a structural organization similar to that of the 4q35 locus implicated in facioscapulohumeral muscularExpand

Physical Mapping Evidence for a Duplicated Region on Chromosome 10qter Showing High Homology with the Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy Locus on Chromosome 4qter
Abstractp13E-11, a probe (D4F104S1 locus) derived from chromosome 4q35, detects -EcoRI-rearranged fragments less than 28 kb in both sporadic and familial cases of facioscapulohumeral muscularExpand

Presence of nerve growth factor in the thymus of prenatal, postnatal and pregnant rats.
The presence of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) and the expression of low- and high-affinity NGF receptor were investigated in prenatal, postnatal and pregnant rats. Using ELISA and immunohistochemistry itExpand

High‐dose anabolic androgenic steroids modulate concentrations of nerve growth factor and expression of its low affinity receptor (p75‐NGFr) in male rat brain
The effects of treatment with a high dose of nandrolone or testosterone on nerve growth factor (NGF) levels and NGF low‐affinity receptor (p75‐NGFr) distribution in the brain were analyzed.Expand

Induction of Monocyte-Macrophage Differentia of Human Hematopoietic Cells (CM-S) by Phorbol Esters
Abstract A human diploid hematopoietic cell line, CM-S, has been established from the bone marrow of a patient with congenital hypoplastic (Diamond-Blackfan) anemia. The cells grow in suspension inExpand
