Time-lapse imaging analysis was previously used to show that spontaneous proteolysis of PrP(C), which is fluorescence-labeled at both NH(2)- and COOH-termini, occurred in mouse neuroblastoma neuro2a (N2a) cells susceptible to PrP(Sc). We demonstrated that, unlike other protease inhibitors, a calpain inhibitor, calpastatin, drastically inhibited(More)

Engagement of membrane Ig (mIg) on WEHI-231 murine B lymphoma cells, a cell line model representative of primary immature B cells, results in growth arrest and subsequent apoptosis. Of the several dozen genes upregulated greater than two-fold by anti-IgM treatment through DNA microarray analysis, we focused on B cell translocation gene 1 (Btg1) and Btg2,(More)
