The response of mice genetically unable to up-regulate GATA-1 expression (GATA-1(low) mice) to acute (phenylhydrazine [PHZ]-induced anemia) and chronic (in vivo treatment for 5 days with 10 U erythropoietin [EPO] per mouse) erythroid stimuli was investigated. Adult GATA-1(low) mice are profoundly thrombocytopenic (platelet counts [x 10(9)/L] 82.0 +/- 28.0(More)
Compared with other T cell lines, C8166 lymphocytes are particularly susceptible to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and the outcome is invariably cell death. The results reported in this study demonstrate that the virus-induced cytolysis is strongly dependent on the initial cell density of C8166 cultures. Cultures diluted to 50 to 500 cells/ml(More)
All mice harboring the X-linked Gata1low mutation in a predominantly CD1 background are born anemic and thrombocytopenic. They recover from anemia at 1 month of age but remain thrombocytopenic all their life and develop myelofibrosis, a syndrome similar to human idiopathic myelofibrosis, at 12 months. The effects of the genetic background on the(More)
