A remarkable overlap was observed between the gadd genes, a group of often coordinately expressed genes that are induced by genotoxic stress and certain other growth arrest signals, and the MyD genes, a set of myeloid differentiation primary response genes. The MyD116 gene was found to be the murine homolog of the hamster gadd34 gene, whereas MyD118 and(More)
We report here the full length cDNA sequence and the deduced amino acid sequence of MyD118, a novel myeloid differentiation primary response gene transiently expressed in M1D+ myeloid precursors following induction of terminal differentiation and growth arrest by IL6. MyD118 expression was observed to be induced also in the absence of protein synthesis,(More)
The proto-oncogenes c-jun, junB, junD, and c-fos recently have been shown to encode for transcription factors with a leucine zipper that mediates dimerization to constitute active transcription factors; juns were shown to dimerize with each other and with c-fos, whereas fos was shown to dimerize only with juns. After birth, hematopoietic cells of the(More)
Leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) and interleukin-6 (IL-6), two multifunctional cytokines lacking structural homology and binding to distinct receptors, share interesting functional similarities, which include induction of hematopoietic differentiation in normal and myeloid leukemia cells, induction of neuronal cell differentiation, and stimulation of(More)
We report here the full length cDNA sequence and the deduced amino-acid sequence of MyD88, a novel myeloid differentiation primary response gene activated in M1D+ myeloid precursors, following induction of terminal differentiation and growth arrest by IL6. Detectable levels of MyD88 RNA were observed in myeloid precursor enriched murine bone-marrow, but not(More)
Differentiation inducible leukemic as well as normal myeloid precursors treated with physiological myeloid differentiation inducer have been used to explore the immediate early genetic response of cells to terminal differentiation and growth arrest stimuli. cDNA clones of 12 distinct genes, referred to as MyD genes, which are activated in the absence of(More)
To better understand the immediate early genetic response of myeloid cells to terminal differentiation and growth inhibitory stimuli, we have recently isolated complementary DNA clones of myeloid differentiation primary response (MyD) genes, activated in the absence of protein synthesis in M1 myeloid precursor cells following induction for terminal(More)
UT-7/Epo cells are human factor-dependent erythroleukemic cells, requiring erythropoietin (Epo) for long-term growth. Stem cell factor (SCF) stimulates proliferation of UT-7/Epo only transiently, for three to five days. An investigation of the signal transduction pathways activated by these cytokines in UT-7/Epo cells may identify those signals specifically(More)
The subunit fibrin composition of thrombi of both venous and arterial origin was examined by sodium dodecyl sulphate gel electrophoresis. The thrombi were recovered by surgical intervention and all had the same fibrin subunit composition. The alpha chains were cross-linked as alpha-chain polymers alpha (p), the gamma chains as gamma-chain dimers(More)
