Integrin-mediated cell attachment modulates growth responses and growth factors regulate cell attachment. Moreover, both cell attachment to extracellular matrix and mitogenic signaling by growth factors are necessary for the proliferation of most types of normal cells, suggesting that integrin and growth factor receptor signaling pathways meet at some(More)
Eph receptor tyrosine kinases play key roles in pattern formation during embryonic development, but little is known about the mechanisms by which they elicit specific biological responses in cells. Here, we investigate the role of tyrosines 605 and 611 in the juxtamembrane region of EphB2, because they are conserved Eph receptor autophosphorylation sites(More)
During the last five years, we have observed four families in which siblings were affected with the congenital nephrotic syndrome (CN). Clinically, all patients, with one exception, could barely be differentiated from classical examples of CN of the Finnish Type (CNF). Morphologically, however, each family showed a different type of CN, although the(More)
Alpha10beta1 is a collagen-binding integrin expressed by chondrocytes [Camper et al. (1998) J. Biol. Chem. 273: 20383-20389]. In the present study, the mouse alpha10 gene was isolated from a sCos1 SVJ library and the genomic structure and chromosomal localization was determined. The alpha10 gene consists of 30 translated exons spanning a region of(More)
To evaluate the relevance of muscle weight as a functional parameter of motor regeneration, the nerve-dependent muscle weights were measured and compared with the toe-spreading reflex and the muscle action potential in different designs of nerve conditioning of the peroneal nerve in New Zealand White rabbits. From 100 peroneal nerves in 50 rabbits, 60(More)
