1. In RAW 264.7 murine macrophages and rat aortic smooth muscle (RASM) cells lipopolysaccharide (LPS) alone or in combination with interferon gamma (IFN gamma) or forskolin, respectively, stimulated the expression of the 130 kDa inducible isoform of nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in both a time- and concentration-dependent manner. 2. Incubation with the(More)
Mutational alteration of the BLM3 gene in Saccharomyces cerevisiae confers hypersensitivities to lethal effects of ionizing radiation, anticancer bleomycins and structurally-related phleomycins. Bleomycin is used clinically in the treatment of many types of cancers, including Kaposi's sarcoma. The BLM3 gene was cloned from a genomic library by complementing(More)
Investigations of the cytotoxic activity of T cells induced following one or two intraperitoneal doses of live Salmonella revealed that cytotoxicity was restricted to the Lyt-2+ T-cell subset and was enhanced following secondary infection with Salmonella. Initial studies using the lectin-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (LDCC) assay detected Lyt-2+ cytotoxic(More)
Cellular membrane disruption induced by β-amyloid (Aβ) peptides has been considered one of the major pathological mechanisms for Alzheimer disease. Mechanistic studies of the membrane disruption process at a high-resolution level, on the other hand, are hindered by the co-existence of multiple possible pathways, even in simplified model systems such as the(More)
Intraperitoneal injection of (BALB/c x C57BL/6) F1 mice with live, but not killed Salmonella enteritidis 11RX (11RX) induced T cells in the spleen and peritoneal cavity which were able to proliferate in vitro in response to two different forms of 11RX antigens. The majority of cells which proliferated were L3T4+ T cells and most of the response was(More)
In order to identify common mechanisms of action by which both the platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) and the tumor promoter tetradecanoyl phorbol acetate (TPA) initiate cell growth, the effects of PDGF and TPA on phosphorylation of cellular proteins were examined in density-inhibited Balb/c-3T3 cells. Cultures were incubated with 32Pi and growth factor,(More)
