PADGEM (platelet activation dependent granule-external membrane protein) is an integral membrane protein of the alpha granules of platelets and Weibel-Palade bodies of endothelial cells that is expressed on the plasma membrane upon cell activation and granule secretion. Activated platelets, but not resting platelets, bind to neutrophils, monocytes, HL60… (More)
PADGEM (platelet activation-dependent granule-external membrane protein) is a leukocyte receptor of activated platelets that mediates cellular adhesion of platelets to neutrophils and monocytes. To identify the natural ligand on neutrophils and monocytes that interacts with PADGEM, we have evaluated anti-leukocyte antibodies for their ability to block… (More)
The receptor binding, internalization and tyrosine kinase activation of insulin-like growth factors, IGF-I and IGF-II have been investigated in cultured adult bovine chromaffin cells. IGF-I receptor alpha-subunits (Mr approximately 130,000) bound IGF-I and IGF-II with identical affinity (Kd approximately 1 nM) and insulin with about 1000 times lower… (More)
A transmission electron microscopic study of cell division in serially sectioned imaginal discs of early third instar fruitfly larvae revealed that mitotic cells maintain a relationship with the basal surface of the disc through thin cytoplasmic extensions abutting on vesicular material. Two patterns of cell division were discerned. In one, cell divisions… (More)
The blossoms on tuliptree are a beautiful yellow-green with an orange base, blooming from May into June. They're followed by cone-shaped brownish fruits that persist into winter. Both the leaves and the flowers are large and tulip-shaped. It is not a good selection for hot, dry sites. The large leaves turn bright golden yellow in fall. Zone 4.
