The formation of epithelial tissues requires both the generation of apical-basal polarity and the coordination of this polarity between neighbouring cells to form a central lumen. During de novo lumen formation, vectorial membrane transport contributes to the formation of a singular apical membrane, resulting in the contribution of each cell to only a(More)
Defects in the development or maintenance of tubule diameter correlate with polycystic kidney disease. Here, we report that absence of the cadherin regulator p120 catenin (p120ctn) from the renal mesenchyme prior to tubule formation leads to decreased cadherin levels with abnormal morphologies of early tubule structures and developing glomeruli. In(More)
Four monoclonal antibodies (McAbs) previously generated against human soft tissue sarcomas and reacting with connective tissue differentiation antigens were evaluated for their interaction with tissues obtained from patients with classic Kaposi's sarcoma. Biopsy was performed on active neoplastic lesions from the skin of 26 patients, frozen sections were(More)
