Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a herpesvirus associated with lymphomas and carcinomas. While EBV-associated epithelial cell lines are good model systems to investigate the role of EBV in carcinoma, only a few cell lines are available as they are hard to acquire. A greater variety of naturally EBV-infected cell lines which are derived from tumour patients are(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize the distribution of the receptor for the fibroblast growth factor in human normal tissues and tumors using a new monoclonal antibody. DESIGN Monoclonal antibodies for a kinase-insert region of fibroblast growth factor receptor-1 (FGFR-1) were generated. We conducted an immunohistological analysis of FGFR-1 using a highly specific(More)
BACKGROUND Previously, we reported that neonatal porcine pancreatic cells transfected with hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) gene in an Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-based plasmid (pEBVHGF) showed improved proliferation and differentiation compared to those of the control. In this study, we examined if pancreatic cells transfected repeatedly with pEBVHGF can be(More)
