The interaction between CD40 ligand (CD40L, CD154) and its receptor CD40 on antigen-presenting cells, is essential for the initiation of cell-mediated and humoral immune responses. In this study, we investigated the antitumor effect of in vivo gene transfer of CD40L to tumor cells using an adenoviral vector (AdCMVmCD40L) in a murine CT-26 colon cancer(More)
Previously, we isolated the human AE2 (SLC4A2) gene, a member of the sodium-independent anion exchanger family. Rat ortholog of this gene was reported to drive alternative transcription yielding N-terminal variants of the AE2a message. We thus analyzed the human AE2 gene in this regard. Using HepG2 cells, two alternative first exons, each splicing to exon 3(More)
The molecular organization of the AE2 (SLC4A2) gene, a member of the multigene family encoding sodium-independent chloride/bicarbonate anion exchangers, has previously been described in both humans and rats. In these two species, AE2 shows alternate promoter usages and tissue-specific expression of isoforms in a similar, but not identical, fashion. Here we(More)
An updated checklist of medusae and ctenophores is presented for the first time for the area comprised by the Bahía Blanca Estuary, the adjacent shelf El Rincón and Monte Hermoso beach, on the southwest coast of Buenos Aires province (Argentina). The area is highly productive and provides several ecosystem services including fishing and tourism. Updated(More)
