Investigations with chemical inhibitors and with inhibitory antibodies specific for cytochrome P4501A-catalyzed ethoxyresorufin (ethoxyphenoxazone) O-deethylation and 2-acetylaminofluorene (N-2-fluorenylacetamide) ring hydroxylation indicated that cytochrome(s) P450 of the 1A subfamily was functionally expressed in human embryonic hepatic tissues at very(More)
Four proteins of Mr approximately equal to 60,000, 65,000, 67,000, and 70,000 coisolate with the major intermediate filament (IF) structural proteins of BHK-21 cells. These proteins are keratin-like, they form distinctive paracrystals in vitro, and they are concentrated at the nuclear surface. Since these properties indicate similarities with the nuclear(More)
Immunofluorescence and electron microscopic observations demonstrate that intermediate filaments (IF) form cytoplasmic networks between the nucleus and cell surface in several types of cultured cells. Intermediate filaments interact with the nuclear surface, where they appear to terminate at the level of the nuclear envelope. From this region, they radiate(More)
Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) and sphingosine 1-phosphate (S-1-P) are both low molecular weight lysophospholipid (LPL) ligands that are recognized by the Edg family of G protein-coupled receptors. In endothelial cells, these two ligands activate Edg receptors, resulting in cell proliferation and cell migration. The intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1,(More)
Native intermediate filament (IF) preparations from the baby hamster kidney fibroblastic cell line (BHK-21) contain a number of minor polypeptides in addition to the IF structural subunit proteins desmin, a 54,000-mol-wt protein, and vimentin, a 55,000-mol-wt protein. A monoclonal antibody was produced that reached exclusively with a high molecular weight(More)
These investigations were undertaken to determine the extent to which tissues of cultured rat conceptuses contain cytochrome P450 isoforms in sufficient quantities to significantly influence the capacity of certain chemicals to elicit dysmorphogenic effects in vitro. Investigations with highly sensitive probe substrates/inhibitors and with immunologic(More)
IFAP-300K is a 300,000-mol-wt intermediate filament-associated protein previously identified in the baby hamster kidney fibroblastic cell line (BHK-21) by a monoclonal antibody (Yang H.-Y., N. Lieska, A. E. Goldman, and R. D. Goldman, 1985, J. Cell Biol., 100: 620-631). In the present study, this molecule was purified from the high salt/detergent-insoluble(More)
Tissue and serum samples from animals and man in Guangdong Province of the Peoples Republic of China were examined for Toxoplasma gondii infection. Tissues from 519 swine, 576 rodents, 84 people, one cat and two dogs were bioassayed in mice. T. gondii was isolated from 13 pools of swine tissues, but not from any other hosts. Serum samples from animals and(More)
