Gibbon ape leukemia virus (GALV) enters cells following interaction with a specific receptor protein. We have isolated human complementary DNAs (cDNAs) encoding a protein which, when expressed in normally uninfectable mouse NIH3T3 cells, confers on these cells specific sensitivity to infection by GALV. This was done by transfection into mouse cells of human(More)
Specific human papilloma virus (HPV) types appear to be necessary etiological factors for most cervical cancers, yet additional genetic alterations seem to be required for their development and progression. The aim of this study is to determine the likely chromosomes location of tumorigenicity suppressor-like genes, the loss of function of which might be(More)
In the KOP translocation, t(X;14)(q13;q32), virtually the entire long arm of the X has been translocated to the end of the long arm of chromosome 14. Meiotic secondary nondisjunction in a female balanced carrier of the translocation has led to a son with two der(14) or 14-X chromosomes. The normal X chromosome is late replicating in the mother. One of the(More)
Replicate chromosome preparations of umbilical-cord-blood leukocytes from 376 neonates born at the Albert Einstein College Hospital, Bronx, New York, were stained with C-, Q-, and G-banding methods to determine the frequencies and distributions of the variable chromosome bands. The C-band variants of primarily chromosomes 1, 9, and 16, as well as those of(More)
We assayed for the presence of human papilloma virus (HPV) DNA in serum and/or peripheral blood fraction (PBF) of individuals with cervical, head/neck, or bladder cancer due to schistosomiasis. Using mass spectroscopy coupled with competitive PCR, HPV DNA was detected at the individual molecule level by using "MassARRAY" assays. The resultant sensitivity(More)
A search for genes located on human chromosome 21 resulted in the isolation of a HeLa cDNA clone, pUNC724, which hybridized to 3.7 and 2.5 kilobase (kb) EcoRI fragments on each of the human acrocentric chromosomes. In situ hybridization further localized pUNC724 to the pericentromeric region of the human acrocentrics. Two other EcoRI fragments that(More)
