Osteoclasts are multinucleated cells that resorb bones, and are derived from hematopoietic cells of the monocyte/macrophage lineage. The receptor activator of NF-kappaB ligand (RANKL, also called ODF/TRANCE/OPGL) stimulates both osteoclast differentiation from osteoclast progenitors and activation of mature osteoclasts. To identify genes responsible for(More)
To elucidate mechanisms leading to acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), to find sensitive markers and novel targets for drug therapy, and to allow choice of suitable chemotherapy for each affected individual, we previously compared expression of mRNA from mononuclear cells of AML patients with that of normal controls using a cDNA microarray. Data from that(More)
Alzheimer's amyloid precursor protein (APP) is a transmembrane protein containing three phosphorylation sites in its cytoplasmic domain. In the present study, we isolated cDNA of APP from electric ray electric lobe (elAPP). This APP (elAPP699) consists of 699 amino acids, contains the beta-amyloid domain and has 80.7% similarity with the human APP695(More)
