Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) is typified by the t(15;17) translocation, which leads to the formation of the PML/RARA fusion gene and predicts a beneficial response to retinoids. However, approximately 10% of all APL cases lack the classic t(15;17). This group includes (1) cases with cryptic PML/RARA gene rearrangements and t(5;17) that leads to the(More)
The Fas receptor (APO-1/CD95) is capable of inducing apoptosis of lymphoid cells and is expressed in some non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHLs). Fas expression is up-regulated at the surface of normal B cells upon triggering of the CD40 receptor. In this report, we investigated the sensitivity of NHLs to Fas-mediated apoptosis induced by anti-Fas monoclonal(More)
The state and organization of viral DNA sequences present in independently isolated rat cell lines transformed with SV40 were investigated using restriction-enzyme cleavage of the cellular DNA and blot hybridization with a viral probe. The transformed lines were established under conditions as identical as possible, except for a limited number of variables(More)
