Notch signaling is known to differentially affect the development of lymphoid B and T cell lineages, but it remains unclear whether such effects are specifically dependent on distinct Notch ligands. Using a cell coculture assay we observed that the Notch ligand Delta-1 completely inhibits the differentiation of human hematopoietic progenitors into the B(More)
BACKGROUND In mouse embryos, homozygous or heterozygous deletions of the gene encoding the Notch ligand Dll4 result in early embryonic death due to major defects in endothelial remodeling in the yolk sac and embryo. Considering the close developmental relationship between endothelial and hematopoietic cell lineages, which share a common mesoderm-derived(More)
INTRODUCTION AND AIM Remote magnetic navigation has proved to be effective in the ablation of most supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias. Initial studies reported worse results with this system compared to conventional ablation for atrial flutter. The aim of this study was to assess the acute and long-term success of atrial flutter ablation with(More)
Aims: To evaluate the overall incidence of immunoglobulin (Ig) and T cell receptor (TCR) p and y gene rearrangements in a series of 40 cases of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and to determine whether structural modifications of these genes could be correlated with the abnormal expression of lymphoid markers in malignant cells. Methods: All cases were(More)
