The effects of agents used in combination chemotherapy were studied on erythropoietin synthesis in cultures of the human hepatoma cell line, HepG2. Erythropoietin was measured by radioimmunoassay in the culture media after 24-h treatment periods. The RNA synthesis-inhibiting drugs daunorubicin, cyclophosphamide, ifosfamide, andcis-diamine-dichloroplatinum(More)
Moderately increased blood levels of endogenous erythropoietin (Epo) usually induce complete restoration of renal anemia after successful kidney transplantation. With good graft function erythropoiesis is maintained by normal Epo serum levels. Persistent anemia can be related to iron deficiency, low excretory graft function, and high dosage of(More)
The prevalence of increased serum immunoreactive erythropoietin (Epo) was determined in a prospective study of 49 patients with renal cell carcinoma. Measured by a monoclonal antibody based commercial enzyme-linked immunoassay, the Epo concentration was above the normal range, determined in nonanemic humans, in four of the renal carcinoma patients. Since(More)
Routinely processed biopsy material, including 56 gliomas of varying malignancy, 10 meningiomas, 10 brain metastases and 12 brain abscesses, was examined for the presence and distribution of IgG, IgA, IgM, IgD and albumin using the unlabeled antibody peroxidase-antiperoxidase technique. In all specimens the deposition of stained immunoglobulins (Ig) was(More)
The possibility of demonstrating erythropoietin at the light microscopic level was examined in homogeneous cultures of the erythropoietin-producing human hepatoma cell lines HepG2 and Hep3B. Immunoperoxidase staining was applied in combination with several mono- and polyclonal antibodies. Sufficiently strong colour responses were obtained with all three(More)
Isolated rat renal glomeruli contain an adenylate cyclase system and guanylate cyclase system. Adenylate cyclase was strikingly activated by purified parathyroid hormone, epinephrine, prostaglandin I2 and histamine. The demonstration of PTH activated adenylate cyclase in glomeruli raises the possibility of a role of this hormone in regulation of glomerular(More)

The emerging functionality of the sugar code via cell surface glycans and endogenous lectins ascribes pertinent roles in cell physiology to the carbohydrate signals of cellular glycoconjugates. To initiate monitoring of endogenous lectins in human endometrium, we focused on a family of growth/adhesion-regulatory lectins, i.e. galectins. Comprehensive(More)
