The expression of the mouse axonal adhesive glycoprotein F3 and of its mRNA was studied on sections of mouse cerebellar cortex, cerebral cortex, hippocampus, and olfactory bulb from postnatal days 0 (P0) to 30 (P30). In cerebellar cortex, a differential expression of F3 in granule versus Purkinje neurons was observed. F3 was highly expressed during(More)
Obesity-induced white adipose tissue (WAT) fibrosis is believed to accelerate WAT dysfunction. However, the cellular origin of WAT fibrosis remains unclear. Here, we show that adipocyte platelet-derived growth factor receptor-α-positive (PDGFRα+) progenitors adopt a fibrogenic phenotype in obese mice prone to visceral WAT fibrosis. More specifically, a(More)
Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG), a constituent of central nervous system myelin, is an important autoantigen in the neuroinflammatory disease multiple sclerosis (MS). However, its function remains unknown. Here, we show that, in healthy human myelin, MOG is decorated with fucosylated N-glycans that support recognition by the C-type lectin receptor(More)
"The article examines...the integration of immigrant workers into the regular labour force [in Italy]. The analysis concentrates its attention upon Lombardy, one of the regions in which the integration is more relevant. The author compares the situation in Milan, a metropolis where the tertiary sector is highly developed and job opportunities are very(More)
F3 is a developmentally regulated adhesive glycoprotein expressed by subpopulations of central and peripheral neurons which mediates neurite growth and fasciculation via cis- and trans-interactions with cell-surface or matrix components. We previously reported on the characterization of the F3 gene 5' flanking region in which we identified promoter and(More)
"The text presents an analysis of immigrants' insertion within the Italian labour market.... Two main sectors of activities have provided them with...opportunities of insertion: domestic work, mainly concentrated in the metropolis, and work industries, mostly widespread in Lombardia and the Italian North-Eastern regions. The second part of the paper(More)
We studied the karyotypes of 10 members of a family in whom hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is segregating as an autosomal dominant trait. In all those affected by the disease, a fragile site on the long arm of chromosome 16 was found, expressed with different frequencies, but the unaffected family members did not show this trait.
Since 2000 Italy has experienced five epidemics of bluetongue, an arthropod-borne disease that affects primarily sheep and asymptomatically cattle, goats and wildlife ruminants. In four years the disease spread through Southern and Central Italy, involving 14 Italian regions out of 20. To control the disease, the Ministry of Health established a(More)
