Bone marrow stem cells develop into hematopoietic and mesenchymal lineages but have not been known to participate in production of hepatocytes, biliary cells, or oval cells during liver regeneration. Cross-sex or cross-strain bone marrow and whole liver transplantation were used to trace the origin of the repopulating liver cells. Transplanted rats were(More)
Immunohistochemical identification of alpha 1-antitrypsin (alpha 1-AT) and alpha 1-antichymotrypsin (alpha 1-ACh) in pleomorphic adenomas of salivary glands is reported in order to compare their distribution profiles with those of lysozyme and lactoferrin, already described elsewhere. Normal salivary glands indicated positive alpha 1-AT staining in ductal(More)
An immunohistochemical survey of the distribution of keratin was studied in chemically induced carcinomas of the submandibular glands of mice. Initial signs of premalignant changes were degranulation of granular convoluted tubule cells and deposition of keratin protein in small limited areas of the degranulated cells. There was a gradual increase in the(More)
This study investigated the anti-allergic effect of a diethyl ether fraction from dried Sargassum fusiforme. In vivo experiments showed that percutaneous administration of this fraction suppressed mouse ear swelling induced by three types of sensitizers (arachidonic acid, 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate and oxazolone). At a dose of 0.1 mg/mouse, the(More)
Immunohistochemical identification of factor VIII related antigen (F VIII RAG) filament proteins (actin, myosin, filamin, vimentin and desmin) and lectin binding patterns of Con A, PNA, SBA, WGA, RCA-1, UEA-1 and DBA in the endothelial cells and the muscular layers of haemangiomas and normal blood vessels are reported, using paraffin sections with the HRP(More)
In order to distinguish 18 Porphyra and Pyropia species, the present study employed polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) analysis using mitochondrial DNA related to the ATP synthase F0 subunit 6 (ATP6) gene and partial mitochondrial DNA including trnC, rps11, sdh3, trnG, trnN, trnP, and rns. The two primer sets on(More)
The immunohistochemical distribution of keratin is reported in experimental carcinogenesis in the mouse submandibular gland (SMG). The initial changes included degranulation of granular convoluted tubule (GCT) cells and the appearance of keratin in the degranulated cells. There was a gradual increase in the area showing keratin staining in the altered(More)
The immunohistochemical localization of keratins in the oral epithelia of several mammals was investigated using the monoclonal antibodies to keratins, PKK1 (41-56 kilodaltons) and KL1 (55-57 kilodaltons). The staining patterns obtained in different locations of the oral mucosa and of the skin epidermis were compared. In the papillae on the dorsal surface(More)
Immunohistochemically detected keratin proteins in mucoceles of oral mucosa were used to served as markers to identify epithelial-derived cells of minor salivary glands. Normal ducts of minor salivary glands showed an intense keratin staining. Epithelial lining and or epithelial fragments in cystic walls of mucoceles displayed a strong reaction to keratin(More)
