The cellular tumour antigen p53 is a protein found in elevated levels in a great variety of transformed cells (reviewed in ref. 1). Overproduction of p53 was observed in cells transformed by a wide spectrum of agents as well as in embryonal carcinoma cells, and in spontaneous transformants. Although initially described in mice, similar p53-like proteins(More)
1. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) causes urinary obstruction in aging men that frequently requires surgery to relieve the symptoms of urinary retention, nocturia, and micturition. Smooth muscle tone which contributes to the urethral constriction in the enlarged gland appears to be mediated by the alpha 1-adrenoceptors. In this paper, molecular and(More)
A mutation to tetracycline sensitivity in a resistant strain of Streptococcus pneumoniae was shown by several criteria to be due to a point mutation in the conjugative omega (cat-tet) element found in the chromosomes of strains derived from BM6001, a clinical strain resistant to tetracycline and chloramphenicol. Strains carrying the mutation were(More)
The putative oncogene pim-1 is frequently activated by provirus insertion in MuLV-induced T cell lymphomas in mice. By analogy with other cellular oncogenes that are similarly activated (e.g., myc, myb, erbB) it is possible that pim-1 may also be involved in some human tumors. To study human pim-1 we cloned and sequenced human pim-1 cDNA clones. The human(More)
