The identification of microvascular pericytes in vitro relies principally on morphological characteristics and growth dynamics, as there is a paucity of immunochemical markers for these cells. Consequently, an attempt was made to identify mAb reagents that would aid in both the rapid identification and enrichment of retinal capillary pericytes in vascular(More)
A new human T cell subset defined by antineuronal ganglioside mAb 3G5 increases linearly with advancing age in man. The percentage of circulating 3G5+ T cells in 21 normal individuals, quantitated by cytofluorograph analysis, increases linearly from age 7 (23-30%) to age 84 (58%) (r = 0.85, p less than 0.001). The antigen on T cells has the biochemical(More)
If radiosensitivity is altered in a microgravity environment, it will affect the accuracy of assessing astronauts' risk from exposure to space radiation. To investigate the effects of space flight on radiosensitivity, we exposed a crewmember's blood to gamma rays at doses ranging from 0 to 3 Gy and analyzed chromosome aberrations in mitotic lymphocytes. The(More)
Liposomes belong to the most desirable drug delivery systems that enable their application in MRI and SPECT by incorporating lipids chelated to MR contrast agents as well as to radioactive tracers. Here we report our observation on a novel avb3-targeting liposome formulation (RGD-LP) and on the corresponding non-targeting control (NT-LP) for diagnosis and(More)
Activators of protein kinase C (PKC) stimulate Na+ transport (JNa) across frog skin. We have examined the effect of Ca2+ on PKC stimulation of JNa. Both the phorbol ester 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) and the diacyl-glycerol sn-1,2-dioctanoylglycerol (DiC8) were used as PKC activators. Blocking Ca2+ entry into the cytosol (either from external(More)
