Cysteine-rich domain of human ADAM 12 (meltrin alpha) supports tumor cell adhesion.
The ADAMs (A disintegrin and metalloprotease) comprise a family of membrane-anchored cell surface proteins with a putative role in cell-cell and/or cell-matrix interactions. By immunostaining, ADAMExpand

The Cysteine-Rich Domain of Human Adam 12 Supports Cell Adhesion through Syndecans and Triggers Signaling Events That Lead to β1 Integrin–Dependent Cell Spreading
The ADAMs (a disintegrin and metalloprotease) family of proteins is involved in a variety of cellular interactions, including cell adhesion and ecto- domain shedding. Here we show that ADAM 12 bindsExpand

Molecular cloning of AtMMH, an Arabidopsis thaliana ortholog of the Escherichia coli mutM gene, and analysis of functional domains of its product
Abstract We isolated and characterized cDNAs and a genomic clone encoding an Arabidopsis thaliana MutM homolog (AtMMH). AtMMH is a single-copy gene spanning about 3 kb in the nuclear genome, andExpand

Mice with a Targeted Deletion of the Tetranectin Gene Exhibit a Spinal Deformity
ABSTRACT Tetranectin is a plasminogen-binding, homotrimeric protein belonging to the C-type lectin family of proteins. Tetranectin has been suggested to play a role in tissue remodeling, due to itsExpand

IGF-I regulates tight-junction protein claudin-1 during differentiation of osteoblast-like MC3T3-E1 cells via a MAP-kinase pathway
Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) is expressed in many tissues, including bone, and acts on the proliferation and differentiation of osteoblasts as an autocrine/paracrine regulator. Tight-junctionExpand

Tetranectin is a novel marker for myogenesis during embryonic development, muscle regeneration, and muscle cell differentiation in vitro.
Tetranectin, a plasminogen-binding protein with a C-type lectin domain, is found in both serum and the extracellular matrix. In the present study we report that tetranectin is closely associated withExpand

Hormonal regulation of connexin 43 expression and gap junctional communication in human osteoblastic cells.
We have recently shown that connexin 43 (Cx43), a major gap junction protein in osteoblasts, is expressed with an increase in cell density (CHIBA, H. et al. (1993). Cell Struc. Funct., 18: 419-426).Expand

All-trans retinoic acid inhibits dexamethasone-induced ALP activity and mineralization in human osteoblastic cell line SV HFO.
We have recently established a human osteoblastic cell line (SV-HFO) in a culture system, in which the cells are mineralized by treatment with dexamethasone (Dex). Using this system, we examined theExpand

Diabetes impairs the interactions between long-term hematopoietic stem cells and osteopontin-positive cells in the endosteal niche of mouse bone marrow.
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are maintained, and their division/proliferation and quiescence are regulated in the microenvironments, niches, in the bone marrow. Although diabetes is known toExpand
