Loss of chromosomal integrity as well as genomic stability is considered to act as a driving force during the processes of tumorigenesis and tumor progression (1–3). Recently, two kinase genes involved in mitosis, the genes for aurora and IPL1l ike midbodyassociated protein kinase-1 (4,5) [AIM1, registered in UniGene and also known as aurora1 (6) and ARK2(More)
We examined the effects of interleukin-8 (IL-8) on cytomegalovirus (CMV) replication in human fibroblasts. Exposure of fibroblasts to IL-8 augmented both infectious virus production and replication of CMV, with concomitant increases in the levels of both the transcript of the CMV pp71 genome and the synthesis of the CMV late antigen. We also found that CMV(More)
Synovial fluid from 20 patients with rheumatoid arthritis was analyzed to detect human cytomegalovirus (CMV) genomic material using polymerase chain reaction. Of 20 samples tested, 9 were positive for CMV by either ethidium bromide staining or Southern blotting. In contrast, CMV was detected in only 2 of 18 control patients with osteoarthritis. These(More)
UNLABELLED In vitro studies have shown that (99m)Tc-sestamibi (MIBI) is a transport substrate for the P-glycoprotein (Pgp) pump and the multidrug resistance-associated protein (MRP) pump. However, whether MRP and lung resistance protein (LRP) affect tumor accumulation and efflux of (99m)Tc-MIBI in lung cancer is not known. In this study, we explored whether(More)
To analyze persistent infection by human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) in vivo, specimens obtained from various sources and autopsied organs were examined for the presence of HCMV DNA, mRNA transcripts and antigens by polymerase chain reaction, in situ hybridization and immunostaining. The HCMV genome was detected in lung, liver, kidney, and blood vessels at an(More)
Synovial fluid aspirated from 34 patients with symptomatic rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was evaluated for the presence of human cytomegalovirus (CMV) genomic material using polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and for levels of interleukin 8 (IL-8) and IL-6 using enzyme-linked immunoadsorbence assay. IL-8 and IL-6 levels were significantly higher in CMV(More)
In order to maintain an acceptable performance of CYBEST model 2 in the field of gynecologic mass screening, the algorithm of rejection for the CYBEST assessment of inadequately oligocellular samples was reviewed, and the mean number of detected cells per square millimeter for passing rejection was raised from two cells to four. The results of field tests(More)
When a mixed solution of sodium or potassium dihydrogenphosphate and disodium or dipotassium hydrogenphosphate was eluted from a Sephadex G-15 column with either a sodium or potassium chloride solution, the elution profiles of ions showed that the hydrogenphosphate ion was eluted more rapidly than the dihydrogenphosphate ion. When the sample solutions(More)
A sample solution containing sodium or potassium dihydrogenphosphate or disodium or dipotassium hydrogenphosphate was eluted from a Sephadex G-15 column with either sodium or potassium chloride solution in various sample-eluent systems, and every one of the four kinds of ions employed was determined in the eluate. Then, the elution profiles showed the(More)
