Neuroblastoma originates from neural crest cells and is the most common extracranial solid tumor in childhood. Bone metastasis in neuroblastoma is an unfavorable prognostic factor even with intensive therapy. In the present study, we screened four cell lines of human neuroblastoma (NB-1, NB-16, NB-19, and NH-6) for tumorigenicity and metastatic capacity in(More)
Gene-trap mutagenesis is based on the notion that the random insertion of a trapping vector may disturb the function of inserted genes. Here, we applied this method to murine mesenchymal ATDC5 cells, which differentiate into mature chondrocytes in the presence of insulin. As the trap vector we used pPT1-geo, which lacks its own promoter and enhancer, but(More)

Gene-trap mutagenesis is based on the notion that the random insertion of a trapping vector may disturb the function of inserted genes. To identify the genes involved in chondrocytic differentiation, we applied this method to a murine mesenchymal cell line, ATDC5, which differentiate into mature chondrocytes in the presence of insulin, and isolated a clone(More)
