It is assumed that when anticonvulsants arrest seizure, there is rapid return of brain high energy phosphates and brain lactate to control values. To test this hypothesis, diazepam was administered to neonatal dogs during flurothyl-induced seizure. In vivo 31P nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy disclosed that diazepam quickly arrested electrographic(More)
The role of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signal transduction pathway in the proliferation of mammalian cells has been well established. However, there are relatively few reports concerning cell differentiation being mediated by MAPK. The effect of phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) on cell differentiation and signal transduction in a human(More)
The t complex polypeptide 1 (TCP-1) is a protein of unknown function expressed in large amounts during spermatogenesis. Rat monoclonal antibodies recognizing TCP-1 have been prepared and used to immunoprecipitate and Western blot a 57 kd protein from germ cell and tissue culture cell extracts. In tissue culture cells, indirect immunofluorescent localization(More)
Juvenile chronic myelogenous leukemia (JCML) is a myeloproliferative disease in which morbidity and mortality are primarily caused by nonhematopoietic organ failure from myelomonocytic infiltration or by failure of the normal bone marrow. Morphologic evidence of maturation arrest, karyotypic abnormalities, and progression to blast crisis are infrequent(More)
The possibility that umbilical cord and placental blood from an HLA-identical sibling might produce stable donor-derived lymphohematopoietic engraftment was tested in a patient with juvenile chronic myelogenous leukemia (JCML). After conditioning with high-dose busulfan and cyclophosphamide, cryopreserved umbilical cord blood, containing 0.5 x 10(8)(More)
Li-Fraumeni syndrome is a rare cancer predisposition syndrome classically associated with remarkably early onset of cancer in families with a typical spectrum of malignancies, including sarcoma, breast cancer, brain tumors, and adrenocortical carcinoma. Because the risks of cancer development are strikingly high for Li-Fraumeni syndrome, aggressive cancer(More)
