Mice homozygous for a disruption at the Lyn locus display abnormalities associated with the B lymphocyte lineage and in mast cell function. Despite reduced numbers of recirculating B lymphocytes, Lyn-/- mice are immunoglobulin M (IgM) hyperglobulinemic. Immune responses to T-independent and T-dependent antigens are affected. Lyn-/- mice fail to mediate an(More)
In steady-state hematopoiesis, G-CSF (granulocyte-colony stimulating factor) regulates the level of neutrophils in the bone marrow and blood. In this study, we have exploited the availability of G-CSF-deficient mice to evaluate the role of G-CSF in steady-state granulopoiesis and the release of granulocytes from marrow into circulation. The thymidine(More)
A sample of lunar dust was examined for organic compounds. Carbon detected in concentrations of 157 micrograms per gram had a delta(13)C per mil (PDB) value of + 20. Treatment with hydrochloric acid yielded hydrocarbons of low molecular weight, suggesting the presence of carbides. The gas chromatogram of the acylated and esterified derivatives of the(More)
