We have developed a procedure for sequential silver staining and in situ hybridization to analyze the relationship between the amount of rDNA present in nucleolar organizer regions, as estimated by in situ hybridization, and their level of expression, as estimated by the silver signal. For simplicity we used cells from the insectivorous mole Talpa(More)
The age-related evolution and ontogenic origin of the ovotestes in fertile females of the Spanish mole (Talpa occidentalis) were studied. Volume of the ovotestis and its ovarian and testicular components, size of the epididymis and testicular cords, number of ovarian follicles and testicular cords, uterus weight, and age index were analyzed statistically in(More)
To further contribute to the understanding of multiple myeloma, we have focused our research interests on the mechanisms by which tumour plasma cells have a higher survival rate than normal plasma cells. In this article, we study the expression profile of genes involved in the regulation and protection of telomere length, telomerase activity and apoptosis(More)
A specific fatty acid binding protein was isolated from Giardia lamblia, using an affinity column with butyric acid acting as a ligand in place of stearic acid. This method has proved to be more efficient than the one previously described using stearic acid as ligand. The purified fraction showed 8 electrophoretic bands of proteins, with molecular weights(More)
We describe here a fatty acid-binding protein (FABP) isolated and purified from the parasitic protozoon Giardia lamblia. The protein has a molecular mass of 8 kDa and an isoelectric point of 4.96. A Scatchard analysis of the data at equilibrium revealed a dissociation constant of 3.12 x 10(-8) M when the labeled oleic acid was displaced by a 10-fold greater(More)
