Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), initially defined by monoclonal antibody (mAb) 7E11, is a now well-characterized type 2 integral membrane glycoprotein expressed in a highly restricted manner by prostate epithelial cells. 7E11 has been shown to bind an intracellular epitope of PSMA that, in viable cells, is not available for binding. Herein, we(More)
Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is a cell surface glycoprotein expressed predominantly by prostate cancer cells. We have characterized four monoclonal antibodies that bind to the extracellular domain of PSMA (Liu et al., Cancer Res., 57: 3629-3634, 1997). Here we report that viable LNCaP cells internalize these antibodies. Laser scanning confocal(More)
Vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM1) is a member of the immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily which interacts with the integrin very late antigen 4 (VLA4). We have cloned the cDNAs for both murine and rat VCAM1 from endotoxin-treated lung libraries. Both sequences encode proteins with seven extracellular Ig-like domains, which show 75.9% and 76.9% identity,(More)
Vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM1) of the Ig superfamily is induced by the inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1 and tumor necrosis factor on human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). It binds to mononuclear leukocytes via the integrin VLA-4. We have cloned and expressed a cDNA encoding a new form of human VCAM1 containing an additional Ig(More)
Vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM1) is a member of the immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily which interacts with the integrin very late antigen-4 (VLA4). The VCAM1/VLA4 interaction mediates both adhesion and signal transduction and is thought to play an important role in inflammatory and immune responses in vivo. VCAM1 cDNAs cloned from mouse, rat, rabbit,(More)
secreted by different cells. If so, these pituitary tumors should be composed exclusively or predominantly of mammotropes, somatotropes, and adrenotropes. On the contrary, in our experience all of the many pituitary tumors arising in acidophilic cells secrete MtH and StH and some also AtH in varying ratios. It was reported independently from 3 laboratories(More)
The affinity for antiserum to the multipotent lipotropic hormone (beta-LPH) was tested by immunohistochemical staining of all known cell types in normal and certain abnormal mouse, rat, and human pituitaries. Results indicate that beta-LPH has ACTH, MSH, LH and StH(GH) immunologically cross-reacting determinants. Affinities of anti-LPH for TtH and MtH(More)
Vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM1) is a member of the immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily which interacts with the integrin very late antigen-4 (VLA4). The VCAM1/VLA4 interaction mediates both adhesion and signal transduction and is thought to play an important role in inflammatory and immune responses in vivo. The major form of human VCAM1 contains(More)
We have previously shown that the tat protein of HIV-1 can be used as a carrier to promote the intracellular delivery of heterologous proteins. Here we have tested if the tat-delivery technology can be used to direct MHC class I presentation of native protein, using ovalbumin (OVA) as a model system. We show that a tat-ovalbumin conjugate (tatOVA) can be(More)
