Efficient post-Golgi trafficking depends on microtubules, but actin filaments and actin-associated proteins are also postulated. Here we examined, by inverse fluorescence recovery after photobleaching, the role of actin dynamics in the exit from the TGN of fluorescent-tagged apical or basolateral and raft or non-raft-associated cargoes. Either the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Markers for hepatitis C virus are often detectable in patients suffering chronic hepatitis with liver-kidney microsomal type 1 antibodies. Several authors have suggested that two subsets of those patients can be defined: a) hepatitis C virus negative and b) hepatitis C virus positive. The aim of this work was to further analyze the possible(More)
In 1981, an epidemic occurred in Spain, toxic oil syndrome (TOS), in people who consumed rapeseed oil denatured with 2% aniline, and it was one of the largest intoxication epidemics ever recorded. In 1989, a similar disease, eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome (EMS) was reported in the USA and was associated with the ingestion of L-tryptophan. The pathologic(More)
