The aim was to localise and characterise dystrophin in various human tissues, especially in the CNS. Immunoblotting and immunostaining studies were carried out with eight region-specific dystrophin antibodies. In necropsy tissue from controls, dystrophin was noted as a doublet in immunoblots of striated muscle, and as a single band in those of smooth muscle(More)
To clarify the localization and characterization of dystrophin and dystrophin-related protein (DRP) in the human central nervous system (CNS), we carried out immunoblotting and immunostaining studies using three region-specific anti-dystrophin and one anti-DRP antibodies. With immunostaining, punctuate immuno-reactivity of dystrophin was seen along the cell(More)
To clarify the localization and characterization of dystrophin and dystrophin-related protein (DRP) in the brains of normal and mdx mice, we carried out immunostaining and immunoblotting studies using four region-specific antidystrophin and anti-DRP antibodies. With immunostaining, punctate immunoreactivity of dystrophin was seen along the cell bodies and(More)
Single muscle fibers, obtained at autopsy from a 22-year-old man with Duchenne muscular dystrophy were examined immunocytochemically and also using polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Dystrophin-positive cells were widespread in skeletal, cardiac, smooth muscle, and in brain cells. PCR and Southern blot analyses of DNA from peripheral blood lymphocytes(More)
Three new multiflorane-type triterpene esters, i.e. 7α-hydroxymultiflor-8-ene-3α,29-diol 3-acetate-29-benzoate (1), 7α-methoxymultiflor-8-ene-3α,29-diol 3,29-dibenzoate (2), and 7β-methoxymultiflor-8-ene-3α,29-diol 3,29-dibenzoate (3), were isolated from seeds of Cucurbita maxima, along with the known compound, multiflora-7,9(11)-diene-3α,29-diol(More)
