During mammalian cerebral cortex development, the G1-phase of the cell cycle is known to lengthen, but it has been unclear which neural stem and progenitor cells are affected. In this paper, we develop a novel approach to determine cell-cycle parameters in specific classes of neural stem and progenitor cells, identified by molecular markers rather than(More)
Evolutionary expansion of the human neocortex reflects increased amplification of basal progenitors in the subventricular zone, producing more neurons during fetal corticogenesis. In this work, we analyze the transcriptomes of distinct progenitor subpopulations isolated by a cell polarity-based approach from developing mouse and human neocortex. We identify(More)
The proliferative response of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) in synthetic serum-free media depends on the presence of sufficient amounts of transferrin (Tf). In the present communication we show that the reduction of Tf concentration in culture media results in a decreased proliferation, whereas lymphokine production and the expression of(More)
Soluble transferrin receptors (sTfR) were detected in culture supernatants of activated human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) using a sandwich ELISA technique with two non-cross-reacting TfR MoAbs. Mitogenic stimulation of lymphoid cells induced both up-regulation of TfR surface density and release of sTfR to the medium. Peak levels of sTfR in(More)
AML1 (RUNX1) encodes a DNA-binding subunit of the CBF transcription factor family and is required for the establishment of definitive hematopoiesis. AML1 is one of the most frequently mutated genes associated with human acute leukemia, suggesting that genetic alterations of the gene contribute to leukemogenesis. Here, we report the analysis of mice carrying(More)
Stem cells have one major advantage over primary cells for regenerative therapies in neurodegenerative diseases. They are able to self-renew making sufficient quantities of cells available for transplantation. Embryonic stem cells and fetal neural progenitor cells (NPCs) have been transplanted into models for PD with functional recovery of motor deficits.(More)
Limb regeneration involves re-establishing a limb development program from cells within adult tissues. Identifying molecular handles that provide insight into the relationship between cell differentiation status and cell lineage is an important step to study limb blastema cell formation. Here, using single cell PCR, focusing on newly isolated Twist1(More)
J64, a monoclonal antibody against the human transferrin receptor, has been shown to induce interleukin-2 production by HUT78 cells. It also causes growth inhibition of several cell lines and stimulated lymphocytes. These effects were also present using transferrin-free culture conditions. In this paper, we dissect cell membrane and intracellular events(More)
