A novel glycoprotein (gp) expressed by stromal cells of peripheral lymphoid tissue has been characterized immunohistochemically, biochemically, and at the molecular level. This molecule, gp38, was identified with a monoclonal antibody (mAb) (clone 8.1.1) previously shown to react with a subpopulation of thymic epithelium. This mAb generated a reticular(More)
Wound contraction can substantially reduce the amount of new tissue needed to reestablish organ integrity after tissue loss. Fibroblasts, rich in F-actin bundles, generate the force of wound contraction. Fibronectin-containing microfibrils link fibroblasts to each other and to collagen bundles and thereby provide transduction cables across the wound for(More)
The presence of 20(S)-hydroxycholesterol in rat brains and human placenta has been established using the gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) select ion monitoring (SIM) technique. Identification was ensured by three criteria: the specific retention time when the compound emerges from the gas chromatogram and the two m/z ions (201 and 461amu) which(More)
