A greater understanding of the function of the human immune system at the single-cell level in healthy individuals is critical for discerning aberrant cellular behavior that occurs in settings such as autoimmunity, immunosenescence, and cancer. To achieve this goal, a systems-level approach capable of capturing the response of the interdependent immune cell(More)
While many prognostic markers in B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia provide insight into the biology of the disease, few have been demonstrated to be useful in the daily management of patients. B-cell receptor signaling is a driving event in the progression of B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia and markers of B-cell receptor responsiveness have been shown(More)
Thirty-six helminth species were found in 324 gulls examined during June 1994 to February 1996 from different localities of Galicia: 25 trematodes (Brachylaima sp., Brachylecithum microtesticulatum, Cardiocephaloides longicollis, Cryptocotyle lingua, Cryptocotyle concavum, Diplostomum spathaceum, Echinostephilla virgula, Galactosomum phalacrocoracis,(More)
We studied the influence of host age and sex on the helminth fauna of 324 Larus michahellis captured in different locations in the region of Galicia (northwestern Spain). Gulls were grouped into prefledglings, first-year immature birds, second- and third-year immature birds, and adults. Second-year, third-year, and adult birds were grouped by sex.(More)
Physical and genetic maps have been used for chromosomal localization of genes in vectors of infectious diseases. The availability of polytene chromosomes in malaria mosquitoes provides a unique opportunity to precisely map genes of interest. We report the physical mapping of two actin genes on polytene chromosomes of the major malaria vector in the Amazon,(More)
This study uses single cell network profiling (SCNP) to characterize biological pathways associated with in vitro resistance or sensitivity to chemotherapeutics commonly used in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) (i.e. cytarabine/daunorubicin, gemtuzumab ozogamicin (GO), decitabine, azacitidine, clofarabine). Simultaneous measurements at the single cell level of(More)
Gemtuzumab ozogamicin (GO), an immunoconjugate between an anti-CD33 antibody and a calicheamicin-γ(1) derivative, induces remissions and improves survival in a subset of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). As the mechanisms underlying GO and calicheamicin-γ(1) resistance are incompletely understood, we herein used flow cytometry-based single cell(More)
The Ag-NOR staining technique and image analysis were used to evaluate morphological parameters (area, perimeter and axis ratio) in nucleoli from normal thyroids and from thyroids bearing proliferating lesions (carcinomas, adenomas and hyperplasias). Regions with normal appearance located close to adenomatous and carcinomatous regions, in the thyroid of(More)
This work provides a detailed morphological description by optic and scanning electron microscopy of the nematode Spirura dentara (Mŏnnig, 1938), a parasite of Herpestes ichneumon in southern and central Spain, together with an analyses of the morphometric variations within this population. Our findings in adult specimens include some important characters(More)
A comparative analysis was made of the esterase isoenzyme patterns of eight iso-female lines, four of Drosophila serido (B31 D1, A55, B59, Q1, B50Q3), two of D. koepferae (B20D2 and B25D7), one of D. seriema (A95) and one of D. buzzatii (Buz). In all, 43 bands in the spectrum of esterase isoenzymes were detected by electrophoresis in polyacrylamide gels.(More)
