One of the main characteristics of multiple myeloma (MM) cells is their specific homing and growth in the bone marrow (BM). Differences between stroma-dependent and-independent MM cell lines may reveal key molecules that play important roles in their homing to the BM. We addressed this topic with a murine MM model, including the in vivo 5T33MM (5T33MMvv)(More)
Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) has been described as an important factor in proliferation, cell survival and migration of multiple myeloma (MM) cells. Angiogenesis correlates with development and prognosis of the MM disease. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is one of the prominent factors involved in this process. The different functions of(More)
Concentrations of vasopressin (VP) precursor and oxytocin (OT) precursor mRNA were measured in magnocellular cell groups of the rat hypothalamus by newly developed solution hybridization assays. The assays employed single-stranded 35S-labeled VP-specific and OT-specific DNA probes that were prepared by primer extension on recombinant M13 DNA templates.(More)
Consistent chromosomal translocations involving the c-myc cellular oncogene and one of the three immunoglobin loci are typical for human Burkitt's lymphoma, induced mouse plasmacytoma (MPC) and spontaneously arising rat immunocytoma (RIC). Another plasma cell malignancy, multiple myeloma (MM), arising spontaneously in the ageing C57BL/KaLwRij mice, was(More)
