The recycling itinerary of plasma membrane transferrin receptors (TFR) was charted in IgG-secreting mouse myeloma cells (RPC 5.4) by tagging surface receptors with either bound anti-transferrin receptor antibodies (anti-TFR) or Fab fragments thereof and determining the intracellular destinations of the tagged receptors by immunocytochemistry.

A 62-year-old man with a history of a resected rectal polyp was diagnosed 14 years later with right liver and multiple bone metastases. The liver biopsy showed a malignant epithelial tumor that was positive for neuron-specific enolase immunostaining and negative for chromogranin. Electron microscopy was characteristic of that for an endocrine tumor. Most(More)
Immunoglobulin heavy chain binding protein (BiP) (also known as GRP 78) is a protein of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) which has been shown to be involved in post-translational processing of nascent membrane and secretory proteins. To determine BiP's location in the exocytic pathway, we localized BiP at the electron microscopic level in mouse myeloma cell(More)
A method for the isolation of plasma membranes from an experimental murine ependymoblastoma is described. In this procedure, 5'-nucleotidase was used as the plasma membrane marker, since cytochemical methods demonstrated that the enzyme was present on this subcellular structure only. The final plasma membrane preparation showed a 15-fold enrichment in(More)
The effects of 21 cationized serum albumin samples of various degrees of cationization on renal function were studied in the dog. The samples were perfused intra- aortically to obtain preferential perfusion of the left kidney in 25 dogs. Standard clearance techniques were used, associated in six dogs with sieving studies of 125I-labelled(More)
