We have developed a serum-free medium designated RDSF for the generation of LAK cells based on RD6F medium, which was originally developed as a serum-free medium for the growth of myeloma and hybridoma cells. The cytotoxic activity of LAK cells generated in RDSF against Raji, K562 and oral cancer cells, is 3-4 times that of LAK cells generated in medium(More)
Sleep disruption has detrimental effects on glucose metabolism through pathways that remain poorly defined. Although numerous studies have examined the consequences of sleep deprivation (SD) in the brain, few have directly tested its effects on peripheral organs. We examined several tissues in mice for induction of the unfolded protein response (UPR)(More)
Localization of histamine H1-receptors in subcellular fractions from rat and guinea pig brains was examined in a [3H]mepyramine binding study. Major [3H]mepyramine binding sites with increased specific activities [( 3H]mepyramine binding vs. protein amount) were recovered from P2 fractions from both rat and guinea pig brains by differential centrifugation.(More)
Immuno-cross-reactivity between histidine decarboxylase (HDC) and dopa decarboxylase (DDC) was investigated. By comparing the cDNA sequences of rat HDC with rat and guinea-pig DDCs, we found a region that may possibly be related to the cross-reactivity of anti-rat HDC antibody with guinea-pig DDC. The peptide encoded by this region was synthesized and(More)
Gastrointestinal toxicities of tegafur (FT) and doxifluridine (DFUR) were compared using mouse intestinal enzymes as the marker. Enzyme activities were decreased during repeated administration of these 5-FU derivatives. When the drugs were administrated once a day, the decrease of enzyme activities were almost equal, but when administrated twice a day. DFUR(More)
We have purified a 16,000 dalton protein that stimulates growth of human umbilical cord vein-derived endothelial cells (HUV-EC) from mouse submaxillary glands by using heparin-Sepharose affinity and C4 reverse phase chromatography. The purified molecule was identified as an FGF-1 on the basis of its biological activities, its affinity for heparin and its(More)
Two patients with monoclonal IgM-secreting neoplasms are presented. Though both patients could be diagnosed as Waldenström's macroglobulinemia, the clinicopathologic features were quite contrastive. Most neoplastic cells in Case 1 showed lymphocytic morphology with rather leukemic process, while those in Case 2 were highly polymorphic with solid(More)
