Altered expression of the glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) has been implicated in the progression to tumour after exposure to carcinogens, and GST Pi has been suggested as a possible marker of preneoplasia in the cervix. We have studied expression of the GST isoenzymes in normal cervix, non-dysplastic cervical condylomata, cervical intraepithelial(More)
Recent work has suggested that glutathione S-transferase (GST) enzymuria may be used to assess renal injury in transplant kidneys. There is little work investigating the possibility of using glutathione S-transferase enzymuria to assess other renal diseases and this study was undertaken to evaluate the localisation of GST isoenzymes in various glomerular(More)
The glutathione S-transferases are a complex group of multifunctional enzymes which may detoxify a wide range of toxic substances including drugs and carcinogens. Different isoenzymes vary in substrate specificity, tissue distribution and level of expression during development. Following reports of cell-specific and age-dependent expression in rat brain we(More)
We assessed the importance of outline contour and individual features in mediating the recognition of animals by examining response times and eye movements in an animal-object decision task (i.e., deciding whether or not an object was an animal that may be encountered in real life). There were shorter latencies for animals as compared with nonanimals and(More)
Disregulation of urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) was assessed in 134 breast cancer specimens. Overexpression of uPA was determined by immunohistochemistry using the specific monoclonal antibody, #394. Gene amplification was assessed by differential polymerase chain reaction, using primers designed to amplify a 111 bp segment of the uPA gene.(More)
Neuropsychology and neurophysiological techniques: contributions to the study of the biology of behavior Abstract Neuropsychology is an area of neuroscience that studies the relationship between brain and brain function. The objective of this paper is to provide a review of neuropsychology, including a description of the main contributions of cortical(More)
The glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) have been implicated in carcinogenesis and tumour drug-therapy resistance. In this study GST pi was the predominant isoenzyme in the fetal human kidney. It was present in differentiated epithelial structures but never in the primitive mesenchyme. By contrast most cases of Wilms' tumours showed GST pi in both epithelial(More)
