Cultured bovine articular cartilage was subjected to 50 ms, 0.5-1.0 MPa compressions repeated at intervals of 2-60 s for 1.5 h and simultaneously labeled with 35SO4. The compression was delivered with a 4-mm-diameter nonporous loading head on an 8-mm-diameter cartilage explant. This method created directly compressed (central) and uncompressed (border)(More)
Amphoterin (HMGB1) is a 30-kD heparin-binding protein involved in process extension and migration of cells by a mechanism involving the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE). High levels of amphoterin are released to serum during septic shock. We have studied the expression of amphoterin in monocytes and the role of amphoterin and RAGE in(More)
Hyaluronan (HA), an extracellular high-molecular-mass polysaccharide, is supposed to be involved in the growth and progression of malignant tumours. We studied the cellular expression of HA in 215 operated stage I-IV gastric cancer patients using a specific biotinylated probe. Most (93%) of the tumours showed HA staining in their parenchyma, whereas the(More)
