Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a heterogeneous population of non-hematopoietic precursor cells predominantly found in the bone marrow. They have been recently reported to home towards the hypoxic tumor microenvironment in vivo. Interleukin-6 is a multifunctional cytokine normally involved in the regulation of the immune and inflammatory response. In(More)
The fidelity of chromosome segregation requires that the cohesin protein complex bind together newly replicated sister chromatids both at centromeres and at discrete sites along chromosome arms. Segregation of the yeast 2 micro plasmid also requires cohesin, which is recruited to the plasmid partitioning locus. Here we report that the RSC(More)
The accurate segregation of chromosomes requires the kinetochore, a complex protein machine that assembles onto centromeric DNA to mediate attachment of replicated sister chromatids to the mitotic spindle apparatus. This study reveals an important role for the yeast RSC ATP-dependent chromatin-remodeling complex at the kinetochore in chromosome(More)
RSC is a 15-protein ATP-dependent chromatin-remodeling complex related to Snf-Swi, the prototypical ATP-dependent nucleosome remodeler in budding yeast. Despite insight into the mechanism by which purified RSC remodels nucleosomes, little is known about the chromosomal targets or cellular pathways in which RSC acts. To better understand the cellular(More)
Administration of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) after autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) is generally recommended to reduce the duration of severe neutropenia; however, data regarding the optimal timing of G-CSFs post-transplantation are limited and conflicting. This retrospective study was performed at(More)
