Patients with metastatic cancer commonly have increased serum galectin-3 concentrations, but it is not known whether this has any functional implications for cancer progression. We report that MUC1, a large transmembrane mucin protein that is overexpressed and aberrantly glycosylated in epithelial cancer, is a natural ligand for galectin-3. Recombinant(More)
A method is described for the preparation of high yields of viable, dissociated cells from porcine theca interna and corpus luteum and from human and bovine endometrium. The tissues were dissociated by incubation at 37 degrees C in a mixture of 0.5% collagenase, 0.1% hyaluronidase and 0.1% pronase in balanced salt solution containing 1% chicken serum. This(More)
