The aim of this study was to determine the proliferative activity within the epithelial cells of the normal human breast in 122 patients (6 reduction mammoplasties and 116 fibroadenoma excisions) in relation to age and the phase of the menstrual cycle. Thirty three of the patients were on oral contraceptives and 33 were parous. Thin tissue slices were(More)
The protein coding region of the herpes simplex virus type-1 glycoprotein D (gD) gene was mapped, and the nucleotide sequence was determined. The predicted amino acid sequence of the gD polypeptide was found to contain a number of features in common with other virus glycoproteins. Insertion of this protein coding region into a bacterial expressor plasmid(More)
To assess changes in total and regional chest wall properties during nonrespiratory maneuvers, we measured electromyographic activity of various chest wall muscles, esophageal pressure, and rib cage and abdominal surface displacements in six subjects before and during various static tasks. Subjects were seated at functional residual capacity, and(More)
Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2) cause both persistent and latent infections, including recurrent cutaneous disease, lethal neonatal disease, central nervous system disease and other clinical syndromes. Modified live vaccines or conventionally prepared subunit vaccines have generally been unsuccessful in the treatment of HSV-1 and(More)
The binding of (1)-[3H]vesamicol was characterized in several subcellular fractions and brain regions of the rat. Binding to a lysed P2 fraction from the rat cerebral cortex reached equilibrium within 4 min at 37 degrees C and was reversible (dissociation half-time 4.9 min). At least two binding affinities were found in P2 fractions from the cerebral cortex(More)
Retinoblastoma like protein 2 (RBL2) or p130 is a member of the pocket protein family, which is infrequently mutated in human tumours. Its expression is posttranscriptionally regulated and largely G0 restricted. We have previously shown that E6/E7 oncoproteins encoded by human papillomavirus (HPV) type 16, which is a high-risk type for cervical cancer(More)
