Atypical expression of cell cycle regulatory proteins has been implicated in Alzheimer's disease (AD), but the molecular mechanisms by which they induce neurodegeneration are not well understood. We examined transgenic mice expressing human amyloid precursor protein (APP) and presenilin 1 (PS1) for changes in cell cycle regulatory proteins to determine(More)
Hypersensitivity granulomas induced by infection with Schistosoma mansoni were isolated from the livers of BALB/c mice after 7, 8, 10, and 12 weeks. The parasite egg-granulomas were sequentially extracted with a Tris-buffered saline (soluble fraction) and 2 M KSCN (bound fraction). Fibrinolytic enzyme activity measured with both synthetic substrates and(More)
