The chorion is the acellular envelope surrounding mature eggs of teleostean fish. The macromolecular composition of the zebrafish (Danio rerio) egg chorion, organised as a three-layered structure, has been analysed. SDS-PAGE analysis, under reducing conditions, of isolated and purified chorions revealed a reproducible pattern of four major polypeptides(More)
The highly conserved 14-3-3 family of proteins, originally reported as brain-specific and then found in various somatic cells and oocytes, interacts with several important signal transduction kinases so that actually the 14-3-3 protein are considered as modulators of multiple signal transduction pathways. Here we show that a 14-3-3 protein is also expressed(More)
A cDNA encoding for a new member of the DnaJ protein family has been isolated by screening a mouse spermatogenic cell expression library. The full-length cDNA obtained by extension of the original clone with RT-PCR has been characterized with respect to its DNA sequence organization and expression. The predicted open reading frame encodes a protein of 242(More)
Extramedullary haematopoiesis (EH) is the production of blood cell precursors outside the bone marrow that occurs in various disorders, such as thalassaemia, sickle cell anaemia, hereditary spherocytosis, polycythaemia vera, myelofibrosis and other haematological diseases. In chronic anaemia, it is a physiological response to increased erythropoietin. In(More)
In 2012, testing of the Chronic Related Groups model, an innovative chronic care organisational model, was launched in the Lombardy Region (Italy). In this model, chronic care patients are cared for by healthcare providers who must identify in advance a quota of resources necessary and then ensure continuity of care to patients by providing, with the(More)
Phage-typing of S. typhi is considered a valid tool for epidemiological studies on typhoid fever, and has therefore been used for many years at the Reference Center for Phatogenic Enteric Bacteria of Northern Italy. Results obtained from Jan 1 1980 through April 30 1981 are reported and a temporal (with what was obtained at the Center in the past) and(More)
A cDNA encoding a new member of the DnaJ protein family has been isolated by screening a mouse testicular expression library. The predicted protein, named MSJ-1, is 242 amino acid residues-long, containing the fingerprinting J domain in the NH2 terminus. A wide tissutal Northern blot analysis reveals that MSJ-1 is expressed only in the testis, while in situ(More)
