Extracellular adenosine (Ado) has been implicated as central signaling molecule during conditions of limited oxygen availability (hypoxia), regulating physiologic outcomes as diverse as vascular leak, leukocyte activation, and accumulation. Presently, the molecular mechanisms that elevate extracellular Ado during hypoxia are unclear. In the present study,(More)
Monocyte-specific monoclonal antibodies (7) were used to compare the efficacy of monocytes and dendritic cells as accessory or stimulator cells for human T cell replication. Both unfractionated and plastic-adherent mononuclear cells were first treated with a cytolytic antimonocyte antibody that kills greater than 95% of monocytes but not dendritic cells.(More)
Uterine leiomyoma (UL) is a benign and most common tumor that affects 20–45% of women of fertile age. In this study, we analyzed the MED12 gene second exon nucleotide sequence from 15 DNA samples extracted from LM of 15 subjects with uterine leiomyoma and 15 DNA samples extracted from peripheral blood leukocytes of the same female subjects. It was shown(More)
