Little is known about the expression of the polycythaemia rubra vera-1 (PRV-1) gene in bone marrow cells. To determine the expression level of PRV-1 in the bone marrow, we analysed PRV-1 quantitatively in Polycythaemia vera, other chronic myeloproliferative disorders, and reactive states. We demonstrated that PRV-1 was constitutively expressed in both(More)
Osteoblastoma in the os hamatum is rarely seen. Although curettage and grafting seems to be disadvantageous, it offers advantages in the functional protection in the treatment of carpal bone-located osteoblastoma. In a 39-year-old housewife who was admitted with painful left wrist through all day for the past one year, physical examination revealed painful(More)
The role of beta-catenin in epithelial neoplasms has been widely studied whereas current knowledge regarding beta-catenin gene and protein expression in bone marrow cells derived from normal haematopoiesis and clonal haematological disorders is lacking. beta-Catenin gene expression was quantitatively investigated in bone marrow cells derived from clonal(More)
Increased HER2 expression has a prognostic, and predictive value in many solid cancer types, predominantly in breast cancer. However the effects of HER2 on survival from cancers of pancreas, gall bladder, cholangiocellular, and ampullary region are not known. In this study, the effects of increased HER2 expression on these types of cancer have been(More)
The thrombopoietin receptor (Mpl) is involved in the pathogenesis of chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMPD). In this study, we determined Mpl expression by bone marrow cells and megakaryocytes in CMPD by applying laser microdissection, real-time RT-PCR, and immunohistochemistry. Mpl mRNA expression was significantly increased up to 9-fold in total bone(More)
Malignant mesenchymal tumors of the spleen are rare. The vast majority of primary sarcomas of the spleen are of vascular origin. Hemangioendothelioma, a vascular tumor, is characterized by mild cellular atypia, low mitotic rate and intermediate appearance between hemangioma and conventional angiosarcoma histopathologically. We report herein a case of(More)
Evidence on the role of the complement system in transplantation pathology has been accelerated by the discovery of C4d as an in situ marker of antibody-mediated rejection. However, a local or systemic source of complement expression during acute rejection is under discussion. Thus, we quantitatively analyzed local RNA expression of complement component C3(More)
BACKGROUND Various immunological and non-immunological pathomechanisms are responsible for the cellular damage in renal allografts. Since the kidney is an anatomically complex organ with functional and morphological heterogeneous compartments (interstitium, tubuli, vessels, glomeruli), the local response to injury maybe variable, therefore, the(More)

OBJECTIVE Current protocols of retroviral gene transfer into murine hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) result in variable gene transfer efficiency and involve various procedures that are not clinically applicable. We developed and evaluated a reliable transduction protocol that is more related to clinical methods. MATERIALS AND METHODS HSC were enriched from(More)
