Many women affected with galactosaemia suffer from ovarian dysfunction and have elevated serum levels of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). We have analysed FSH-glycoprotein isoforms from four galactosaemic and five healthy women. Besides the commonly found FSH species with a median isoelectric point (pI) of 4–5, the sera of the female galactosaemic(More)
The lack of any markers for oligodendrocyte precursors that can be visualized within the intact CNS is a significant barrier to trials of transplantation of these cells which aim to enhance remyelination in multiple sclerosis. We have therefore asked whether dextran-coated superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) can be used to label cells prior to(More)
In previous transplantation studies using neural stem cell lines immortalized by the temperature-sensitive SV40 large T-antigen, we have shown that animals with experimental hippocampal lesions resulting from four vessel occlusion recover spatial memory functions more effectively when grafted with the MHP36 cell line than with the MHP15 cell line [Gray et(More)
Muscle tissue of adult mice has been shown to contain stem cells with hematopoietic repopulation ability in vivo. To determine the functional characteristics of stem cells giving rise to this hematopoietic activity, we have performed hematopoietic reconstitution experiments by the use of muscle versus marrow transplantation in lethally irradiated mice and(More)
