Central neurocytoma is considered to be a benign intracranial neoplasm, but little is known about the biological behavior of this type of tumor.Proliferative activity of central neurocytoma was measured in 10 cases using MIB-1 staining for Ki-67 antigen.The MIB-1 staining value varied from < 0.1% to 5.6%, to indicating that some of these tumors have(More)
The gene encoding the crystalline surface layer (S-layer) protein from Campylobacter rectus, designated slp, was sequenced and the recombinant gene product was expressed in Escherichia coli. The gene consisted of 4086 nucleotides encoding a protein with 1361 amino acids. The N-terminal amino acid sequence revealed that Slp did not contain a signal sequence,(More)
