1. B700, a murine melanoma antigen, is a member of the serum albumin protein family, being closely related to murine serum albumin (MSA). 2. We have studied and compared the metabolic fate and anatomic distribution of radioiodinated B700 and MSA administered to semisyngeneic naive and tumor-bearing mice. 3. Labelled material from both proteins is excreted(More)
B700 is an albumin-like mouse-melanoma-specific antigen of unknown primary structure and biochemical function. The ability of mouse serum albumin to catalyze weak degradation of prostaglandin E2 has been utilized to compare functional similarities between B700 and mouse serum albumin. Both proteins catalyze the degradation of prostaglandin E2 to(More)
B700, a murine melanoma-specific antigen, is a member of the serum albumin protein family. Other members include serum albumin and vitamin D binding protein. The primary structure and biochemical functions of B700, as well as its in vivo metabolic fate, are largely unknown. We compared murine albumin, vitamin D binding protein and B700 for their ability to(More)
This paper presents a novel sensor in the form of a ring to monitor vascular tone continuously and non-invasively. The signal that is generated by this sensor would allow for accurate detection and analysis of reflection waves that can be used to identify or predict several medical conditions including intradialytic hypotension (IDH). The sensor is(More)
B700 is a murine melanoma antigen that is closely related to, but distinct from, serum albumin. The present study examined the metabolic fate and anatomic distribution of radioiodinated B700 and mouse serum albumin (MSA) administered s.c. to mice. In blood, both proteins were associated with the plasma fraction where the halflife of B700, a glycoprotein,(More)
In a variety of injuries and illnesses, internal organs in the abdominal and pelvic regions, in particular liver, may be compromised. In the current practice, CT scans of liver are visually inspected to investigate the integrity of the organ. However, the size and complexity of the CT images limits the reliability of visual inspection to accurately assess(More)
Pretreatment with 16,16 dimethyl prostaglandin E2 (DiPGE2) provides effective protection against radiation and chemical injury. Cytoprotection against chemical injury is known to be influenced by sex factors, and is more effective in females than males. Since prostaglandin metabolism and biological responses to prostaglandin may vary between sexes, studies(More)
