Proteolysis of fibrin matrices by endothelial cells plays essential roles in the migratory and morphogenic differentiation processes underlying angiogenesis. Using an in vitro fibrinolysis model consisting of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) embedded in a three dimensional fibrin matrix, we show that VEGF, an angiogenic cytokine that plays a(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the genetic regulation of macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF). DNase I hypersensitivity was used to identify potential hypersensitive sites (HS) across the MIF gene locus. Reporter gene assays were performed in different human cell lines with constructs containing the native or mutated HS element. Following(More)
Viral fitness of a laninamivir-selected influenza A/Brisbane/10/2007-like (H3N2) isolate (LRVp9) containing a 237-amino acid neuraminidase deletion and a P194L hemagglutinin mutation was evaluated in vitro and in ferrets. LRVp9 and the wild-type (WT) virus showed comparable replication kinetics in MDCK-ST6GalI cells. Cultured virus was recovered between(More)
The mouse fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (FBPase) cDNA was previously cloned from testicular teratocarcinoma cultured cells (F9 cells). Using this published nucleotide sequence four primer sets were defined and used to amplify FBPase transcript from cerebral cortex, heart, kidney, liver and testis of male C57B1/6 mice. Only one primer set was efficient in all(More)
