OBJECTIVE Type VI collagen is a prominent constituent of the synovial extracellular matrix. The cellular source of this matrix protein and the identity of local factor sin synovium that may regulate its expression have not been delineated, however. We examined the capacity of human fibroblast-like synovial cells to synthesize type VI collagen as well as the(More)
Dopamine plays a number of important physiological roles. However, activation of dopamine receptor type-5 (DR5) and its effect in renal epithelial cells have not been studied. Here, we show for the first time that DR5 is localized to primary cilia of LLCPK kidney cells. Renal epithelial cilia are mechanosensory organelles that sense and respond to tubular(More)
The ability of peroxisome proliferators to induce hepatocellular carcinomas in rodents has been known since the mid 1970's, but the mechanism of tumor formation is still poorly understood. In this study, we have used primary cultures of both rat and human hepatocytes to address the question of whether the peroxisome proliferator,(More)
