We have previously documented that glucocorticoids suppress the proliferation of BDS1 hepatoma cells, a rat epithelial tumor cell line derived from minimal deviation Reuber H35 hepatoma cells. Flow cytometry demonstrated that, after treatment with the synthetic glucocorticoid dexamethasone, the growth of an asynchronous population of BDS1 cells was arrested(More)
In previous studies we demonstrated that IGF-I induces proliferation of pituitary lactotrophs. In addition to its mitotrophic actions, IGF-I is known to prevent apoptosis induced by diverse stimuli in several cell types. In this study, we investigated the action of IGF-I on pituitary cell survival and the intracellular signaling transduction pathway(More)
Podocalyxin (Podxl) is a type I membrane sialoprotein of the CD34 family, originally described in the epithelial glomerular cells of the kidney (podocytes) in which it plays an important function. Podxl can also be found in megakaryocytes and platelets among other extrarenal places. The surface exposure of Podxl upon platelet activation suggested it could(More)
It has long been speculated that feedback inhibition of endogenous opioid neurons may have a role in opiate tolerance and dependence. However, in studies in which opiates or opioid antagonists have been administered to animals, mixed results have been obtained on the ability of these drugs to regulate endogenous opioids. The present studies were undertaken(More)
