We have recently shown that hsp56, the FK506-binding immunophilin component of both the heat shock protein (hsp90.hsp70.hsp56) heterocomplex and the untransformed glucocorticoid receptor heterocomplex, is bound directly to hsp90 (Czar, M. J., Owens-Grillo, J. K., Dittmar, K. D., Hutchison, K. A., Zacharek, A. M., Leach, K. L., Deibel, M. R., and Pratt, W.(More)
As previously observed for FK506, we report here that cyclosporin A (CsA) treatment of mouse fibroblast cells stably transfected with the mouse mammary tumor virus-chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (MMTV-CAT) reporter plasmid (LMCAT cells) results in potentiation of dexamethasone (Dex)-induced CAT gene expression. Potentiation by CsA is observed in cells(More)
Oxygen is pivotal for mammalian cell function, and recent studies suggest an involvement of NO in cellular adaptation to low oxygen supply. Here, we report that endothelial NO-synthase is ubiquitously expressed in rat and mice sensory neurons, and is targeted to juxtamitochondrial compartments of the ER. There it is activated in response to hypoxia while(More)
We have shown recently that the immunophilins CyP-40 and FKBP52/hsp56 bind to a common site on hsp90 and that they exist in separate heterocomplexes with the glucocorticoid receptor (GR). FKBP52/hsp56 binds to hsp90 via its tetratricopeptide repeat (TPR) domains, it is not required for GR.hsp90 heterocomplex assembly, and it is thought to play a role in(More)
In animal cell lysates, multiprotein complexes containing hsp90, hsp70, p60, p23, and several immunophilins can assemble steroid receptors and oncogenic protein kinases, such as v-Src and v-Raf, into heterocomplexes that contain hsp90 and either immunophilins or, in the case of protein kinases, p50. The complexes with hsp90 are required for the proper(More)
OBJECTIVE Endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) can contribute to vascular repair and targeted tumour therapy. Little is known about generating EPC from human umbilical cord blood. We therefore compared methods for purification of EPC from human umbilical cord blood. METHODS Mononuclear cells were isolated from human umbilical cord blood by density gradient(More)
Methylation interference and missing contact analyses demonstrate that nuclear factor I (NF I) recognizes an NF I-like site (5'-GGG(N)6GCCAG-3') within the alpha-globin promoter rather than the adjacent CCAAT box. Consistent with this, mutations within the CCAAT box do not alter significantly the affinity and specificity of the interaction whereas(More)
These NCCN Guidelines Insights focus on some of the major updates to the 2014 NCCN Guidelines for Thyroid Carcinoma. Kinase inhibitor therapy may be used to treat thyroid carcinoma that is symptomatic and/or progressive and not amenable to treatment with radioactive iodine. Sorafenib may be considered for select patients with metastatic differentiated(More)
INTRODUCTION Morale and job perception of staff in community mental health care may influence feasibility and quality of care, and some research has suggested particularly high burnout of staff in the community. The aims of this study were to: a) assess morale, i. e. team identity, job satisfaction and burnout, in psychiatrists, community psychiatric nurses(More)
The 37-kDa/67-kDa laminin receptor precursor/laminin receptor (LRP/LR) acting as a receptor for prions and viruses is overexpressed in various cancer cell lines, and their metastatic potential correlates with LRP/LR levels. We analyzed the tumorigenic fibrosarcoma cell line HT1080 regarding 37-kDa/67-kDa LRP/LR levels and its invasive potential. Compared to(More)
