Point mutations in the Ki-ras gene belong to the genetic key events in tumorigenesis of colorectal cancer. The type and number of point mutations were detected in specimens from patients with colorectal carcinomas stages as Dukes B and C using single-stranded conformational polymorphism analysis and sequencing. G-A transitions in codon 12 were exclusively(More)
The normal distribution of adenosine deaminase complexing protein (ADCP) in the human body was investigated quantitatively by ADCP-specific radioimmunoassay (RIA) and qualitatively by immunohistochemistry. In these studies we used a specific rabbit anti-human ADCP antiserum. In all 19 investigated tissues, except erythrocytes, ADCP was found by RIA in the(More)
In this paper investigations concerning the interactions at the interface between tumor cells and tumor stroma are reviewed. As a model for tumor cell-extracellular matrix interaction human colorectal carcinoma cell lines, in vitro and in vivo, in nude mouse xenografts, were chosen. Based on the available data and on a review of the literature the following(More)
ADCP is a dimeric glycoprotein of about 200KD, for which the physiological role is still obscure. This protein occurs mainly in a membrane bound form in various human tissues. In this paper we review the current literature on ADCP in cancer studies. Soluble ADCP was described to be consistently decreased or absent in cancers of lung, liver, kidney and(More)
A human colon tumor cell line, SW480, was transfected with the c-Ha-ras oncogene, the wild type c-Ha-ras gene, or the pSV2neo plasmid. Cytogenetic analysis and localization of chromosome integration sites were combined in an attempt to analyze the effects of transfection with the c-Ha-ras oncogene on the karyotype. All transfected cell lines showed new(More)
L-CAM is a cell adhesion molecule which is expressed at the intercellular borders of most epithelial cells. L-CAM has been demonstrated to act as an invasion suppressor in carcinoma cell lines. In order to determine whether or not L-CAM expression might distinguish between invasive and non-invasive or metastatic and non-metastatic colon neoplasms, we(More)
It has been suggested that mouse and rat lack adenosine deaminase-complexing protein because in these species exclusively the small molecular weight form of adenosine deaminase (ADA-S) is found. This suggestion is based on the assumption that the adenosine deaminase binding capacity is an inherent functional characteristic of adenosine deaminase-complexing(More)
Immunoreactive adenosine deaminase complexing protein (ADCP) was studied in 91 human colorectal adenocarcinomas. The expression of ADCP was correlated with that of secretory component (SC) and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), with the histological grade and the Dukes' stage of the carcinomas. The histological grade was scored semi-quantitatively according to(More)
Several observations by independent investigators in the past have indicated that adenosine deaminase complexing protein (ADCP), present in considerable quantities in certain human tissues, was absent or decreased in the cancers originated from them. During the present study, electrophoretic analysis of adenosine deaminase (ADA) isozymes and(More)
In this study we investigated the tumorigenicity, growth pattern and spontaneous metastatic ability of a series of nine human colorectal carcinoma cell lines after subcutaneous and intracaecal xenografting in nude mice. CaCo2 cells were found to be poorly tumorigenic to non-tumorigenic in either site; the other cell lines were tumorigenic in both sites.(More)
