We investigated the effect of fatty acid alteration on the thermosensitivity of a mammalian tumor cell, the L1210 lym-phoblastic leukemia. Cells growing in Roswell Park Memorial Institute Medium 1640 with 5% fetal calf serum were modified with respect to their fatty acid composition by supplementing the media with either 40 (IM docosahexaenoic acid (22:6)(More)

The fatty acid composition and some physical properties of intact cells and isolated plasma membranes of two types of mouse myeloid leukemia cell clone grown in culture have been examined. One clone type, MGI+D+, can be induced by the macrophage and granulocyte-inducing protein (MGI) to differentiate into mature macrophages and granulocytes. The other clone(More)
The effect of phospholipid fatty acyl composition on the activity of acylcoenzyme A:cholesterol acyltransferase was investigated in rat liver microsomes. Specific phosphatidylcholine replacements were produced by incubating the microsomes with liposomes and bovine liver phospholipid-exchange protein. Although the fatty acid composition of the microsomes was(More)
The effect of low serum concentration on plasma membrane fluidity and lipid composition, differentiation and insulin binding was investigated in three Friend erythroleukemia clones. Both FLC (clones No. 745) and F(+) (Ostertag F4N) Friend erythroleukemia cells can be induced to differentiate and to produce hemoglobin when exposed to DMSO. Clone R(3)(More)
We have compared insulin binding, plasma membrane fluidity, and phospholipid composition of three different Friend erythroleukemia clones, a wild type (FLC) a mutant (R3) and the revertant to wild type F+. The R3 clone is a non-differentiating DMSO-resistant clone (R3) and has altered membrane fluidity and dramatically altered insulin-binding properties.(More)
It has been suggested that the formation of cytoplasmic lipid droplets may produce an artifact and be responsible for the differences in membrane physical properties detected in lipid-modified cells using fluorescence polarization or spin label probes. To investigate this, the electron spin resonance spectra of lipid droplets isolated from the cytoplasm of(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of scintigraphy with thallium-201 chloride (201 Tl) and technetium-99m pertechnetate (99mTc) in the diagnosis of the localization of the pathological parathyroid glands in primary hyperparathyroidism and compare the results with those of high resolution ultrasonography. METHODS Twelve patients of(More)
The fatty acid composition of cultured Friend erythroleukemia cells was modified by supplementation of the medium with oleic or linoleic acid. There was a 30% reduction in saturated and a 35% reduction in polyunsaturated fatty acids in microsomal phospholipids when the cells were grown in media supplemented with oleic acid, and a 3-fold increase in(More)
