The major human rhinovirus receptor has been identified with monoclonal antibodies that inhibit rhinovirus infection. These monoclonal antibodies recognize a 95 kd cell surface glycoprotein on human cells and on mouse transfectants expressing a rhinovirus binding phenotype. Purified 95 kd protein binds to rhinovirus in vitro. Protein sequence from the 95 kd(More)
We describe the first isolation of a human creatine kinase M cDNA clone and its mapping of the gene to human chromosome 19. A human creatine kinase M cDNA clone, pJN2CK-M, harboring a 1,160-bp insert, was isolated by colony hybridization with a previously sequenced chicken creatine kinase M cDNA probe. The human cDNA was used as a probe in Southern(More)
The recent cloning of complete cDNAs encoding carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and non-specific cross-reacting antigen has revealed the existence of a new gene family belonging to the immunoglobulin gene superfamily. We have reported the isolation of a partial CEA cDNA and of L-cell transfectant cell lines that express human antigens cross-reactive with(More)
We have screened a large number of isolated human genomic clones that hybridize to a cloned HLA cDNA probe for their ability to direct the synthesis of HLA-A, -B, and -C surface antigens on mouse L cells following DNA-mediated gene transfer. The surface expression of human histocompatibility antigens, monitored by indirect immunofluorescence and the(More)
Flow cytometry was used to monitor chitin synthesis in regenerating protoplasts of the yeast Candida albicans. Comparisons of cells stained with Calcofluor White, a fluorochrome with known affinity for chitin, and cells incubated in the presence of N-[3H]-acetylglucosamine, the precursor substrate for chitin, showed a linear relationship between(More)
We have mapped the gene which codes the species-specific determinant defined by monoclonal antibody 4F2 to human chromosome 11. All human chromosomes, except Y, were included in a group of four human-mouse hybrid lines. Hybrids heterogeneous for 4F2 antigen expression were sorted using the fluorescence-activated cell sorter (FACS) to yield populations(More)
Genomic DNA and mRNA from the adenocarcinoma cell line LoVo were used to generate L-cell transfectants and a bacteriophage lambda gt11 cDNA clone that express epitopes of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA). Primary and secondary L-cell transfectants expressing CEA were selected with a fluorescence-activated cell sorter (FACS). These transfectants, including(More)
The major protein to which metabolites of methylcholanthrene are covalently bound has been purified from C3H mouse liver cytosol. Its properties are identical to the mouse skin h-protein, which may be primary arget of carcinogenic hydrocarbon metabolites during transformation to caner. It has a molecular wight of 44,000, consists of 2 subunits o- M.W.(More)
The genes that code for the human lymphocyte cell surface determinants defined by monoclonal antibodies A- 1A5 and A- 3A4 have been genetically mapped. All human chromosomes, except Y, were included in a series of human less than mouse lymphocyte hybrid populations that retained expression of lymphocyte-specific surface markers. Expression of the A- 1A5 and(More)
