Recent evidence suggests the involvement of phosphatidylcholine (PC) hydrolysis both in the control of normal cell growth and in transformation. We show here that the simple exogenous addition of Bacillus cereus PC-hydrolyzing phospholipase C (PC-PLC) is sufficient to elicit a potent mitogenic response in Swiss 3T3 fibroblasts by a mechanism that is(More)
The zebrafish paired box (Pax) genes are expressed in the early neural tube and are thought to be transcription factors that regulate the differentiation of cells in the central nervous system (CNS). The protein product of one of these Pax genes, pax[b], is detectable as a nuclear antigen in all the regions of the embryo that transcribe the gene including(More)
We have purified uracil DNA-glycosylase (UDG) from calf thymus 32,000-fold and studied its biochemical properties, including sequence specificity. The enzyme is apparently closely related to human UDG, since it was recognised by a polyclonal antibody directed towards human UDG. SDS-PAGE and western analysis indicate an apparent M(r) = 27,500. Bovine UDG has(More)
