Diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBL) constitute an heterogeneous clinico-pathological entity. To characterize molecular events related to histological subtypes, clinical presentation or outcome, we compared the mRNAs expressed in a limited series of DLBL by Differential display-reverse transcription (DDRT) and cloned a differential cDNA, that we called(More)
A viable autosomal recessive mutation (named fch, or ferrochelatase deficiency) causing jaundice and anemia in mice arose in a mutagenesis experiment using ethylnitrosourea. Homozygotes (fch/fch) display a hemolytic anemia, photosensitivity, cholestasis, and severe hepatic dysfunction. Protoporphyrin is found at high concentration in erythrocytes, serum,(More)
Interleukin 10 (IL-10) is a macrophage and T-cell-derived cytokine with potent immunosuppressive properties. To assess its role in liver allograft rejection, we evaluated the plasma level and in situ production of IL-10 after liver transplantation and designed in vitro studies to asses the effects of IL-10 on the allogeneic response. Normal controls and(More)
Only half of colorectal-cancer patients elicit serum antibodies in response to intratumoral p53-gene mutations. Our study was designed to compare cellular events (p53-protein accumulation and gene mutations) with the presence of circulating anti-p53 antibodies (p53-Ab). Thirty-five colorectal-cancer patients were studied for their intratumoral p53-protein(More)
Homozygous beta thalassemic mice received 50 U (1,660 U/kg) of recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEpo) 5 days a week for 2 weeks. Hemoglobin increased from 9.2 +/- 0.6 g/dL to 10.5 +/- 0.4 g/dL (P = .002) and hematocrit increased from 29.2% +/- 0.9% to 34.1% +/- 1.9% (P = .0014). The beta minor/alpha globin chain synthesis ratio increased slightly but(More)
Rearrangement of the tal-1 gene (also known as SCL or TCL-5) occurs in at least 25% of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemias (T-ALLs) and results in the aberrant expression of tal-1 mRNA in the neoplastic cells. Also, tal-1 mRNA is constitutively expressed in erythroid precursors and megakaryocytes. This report describes a direct immunocytochemical study of(More)
Transcriptional activation of the tal-1 gene occurs in -30% of patients with T cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and is therefore likely to be involved in human T cell leukemogenesis. However, the TAL-1 protein functional properties involved in this process have not been assessed so far. We have derived a clonal subline of the Jurkat T cell line which(More)
Several cytokines have been implicated in the pathogenesis of human lymphomas. Among them, interleukin-10 (IL-10) is a pleiotropic cytokine with various biological effects on B and T lymphocytes. Its expression has been essentially studied in B-cell lymphomas, where it appears to act as an autocrine growth factor. BCRF1 (also called viral IL-10), an open(More)
The fate of alpha-hemoglobin chains and the cause of membrane protein defects in thalassemic erythrocytes have been studied in: (1) human beta-thalassemia syndromes, (2) mouse beta-thalassemia, and (3) normal human erythrocytes loaded with purified alpha-hemoglobin chains. The similarity and differences observed in these three systems underline the(More)
