Estrogens are believed to play a role in the etiology of both human and murine systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus; SLE), presumably through the agency of their cellular receptor proteins. There is now considerable interest in the molecular mechanism of action of estrogens in immune tissues, particularly with regard to autoimmune disorders, which are(More)
Binding properties of estrogen receptors in liver, thymus and uterus of BALB/c and (NZBxNZW) F1 mice were compared. (NZBxNZW) F1 mice spontaneously develop an autoimmune disease resembling human systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). It is hypothesized that estradiol, through its receptors, mediates the progression of murine SLE. High-speed cytosols were(More)
Cultures of mouse Balb 3T3 fibroblasts exposed to a noncytotoxic dose of ethidium bromide for 16-18 hr are unable to produce foci after infection with murine sarcoma virus. Such cultures regain susceptibility to infection when incubated for 6-8 hr in drug-free growth medium. Pretreated but not untreated cultures exhibit sensitivity toward brief (6 hr)(More)
Infectious disease surveillance, timely detection and early warning of outbreaks present a complex challenge to health authorities in India. Approaches based on the use of unexplored data sources, like emergency medical services (EMS) data, can contribute to the further advancement of public health surveillance capacities in India and support and strengthen(More)
