Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) has mitogenic and anti-apoptotic effects on breast cancer cells. Epidemiologic studies have shown that high plasma levels of IGF-I and low levels of IGF binding protein (BP)-3 are associated with increased risk of breast cancer in premenopausal women. The actions of IGF-I are mediated through the IGF-I receptor (IGF-IR)(More)
BACKGROUND Protein tyrosine phosphatase gamma (PTP gamma) has been implicated as a potential tumor suppressor gene in kidney and lung adenocarcinomas. We have previously shown that PTP gamma mRNA expression levels are lower in DES-induced kidney tumors than in normal kidneys of Syrian hamsters. The goals of the present study were to determine if PTP gamma(More)
Chromosomal abnormalities in acute leukemia have led to the discovery of many genes involved in normal hematopoiesis and in malignant transformation. We have identified the fusion partners in an inv(8)(p11q13) from a patient with acute mixed lineage leukemia. We show by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis, Southern blotting, and reverse(More)
Sodium butyrate-induced differentiation of breast cancer cell lines was used to identify protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) involved in differentiation and growth inhibition of breast cancer cells. Of 42 PTPs analyzed, 31 were expressed in the ZR75-1 breast cancer cell line. Expression of four PTPs (DEP-1, SAP, PTP gamma, and PAC) was regulated in ZR75-1(More)
PURPOSE Expansion and activation of natural killer (NK) cells with interleukin-2 (IL-2) may enhance antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), an important mechanism of rituximab activity. Two parallel Phase I studies evaluated combination therapy with rituximab and IL-2 in relapsed or refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). EXPERIMENTAL(More)
IL-7 was originally reported as a cytokine produced by stromal cells which supports pre-B cell proliferation in vitro. To determine whether human B cells secrete IL-7 and express IL-7R we studied a wide panel of B cell lines (CLS). In Northern blot analysis we detected 2.4 kb IL-7 mRNA and by quantitative PCR we demonstrated IL-7 expression in 5 of 6 B CLS(More)
A recent addition to the lymphokine network is human IL-10 (hIL-10). This novel lymphokine has striking homology to BCRF1 protein, the product of a previously uncharacterized open-reading frame in the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) genome. To date, IL-10 expression has been described in several T clones induced with anti-CD3 and phorbol myristate acetate (PMA),(More)
Interferon gamma (IFN-gamma) production has been attributed exclusively to activated T cells and NK cells. We sought to determine whether human B cells express IFN-gamma. We studied 28 B cell lines including Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)+ normal lymphoblastoid B cell lines (N = 7), EBV+ B cell lines derived from patients with Burkitt's lymphoma with (N = 6) or(More)
A carbon fiber microelectrode is shown to give a potential-dependent dopamine-selective response in rat brain tissue. However, distinct evidence for dopamine release is not obtained with intraperitoneal amphetamine administration (1.8 or 3.7 mg . kg-1). In rats which have been unilaterally depleted of dopamine, the change in electrochemical signal obtained(More)
