Neural activity and neurotrophins induce synaptic remodeling in part by altering gene expression. A cDNA encoding a glycosylphoshatidylinositol-anchored protein was identified by screening for hippocampal genes that are induced by neural activity. This molecule, named neuritin, is expressed in postmitotic-differentiating neurons of the developing nervous(More)
Accumulation of intracellular cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) has been shown to inhibit the growth of cultured airway smooth-muscle cells, but the precise mechanism underlying the antimitogenic action of cAMP in these cells is unknown. We examined the effects of forskolin, an activator of adenylate cyclase, on DNA synthesis, cyclin D1 expression, and(More)
The t(14,18) chromosomal translocation that occurs in human follicular lymphoma constitutively activates the BCL2 gene and disrupts control of apoptosis. Interestingly, 70% of the t(14,18) translocations are confined to three 15-bp clusters positioned within a 150-bp region (major breakpoint region or [MBR]) in the untranslated portion of terminal exon 3.(More)
