Lectin-binding patterns of seven human melanoma clones and variants selected from the same parental cell line and differing in their spontaneous metastatic potential in an animal model were compared by flow cytometry and Scatchard analysis. Human melanoma clones and variants with high and low metastatic potential could be distinguished by their peanut(More)
The process of apoptosis is responsible for normal cellular turnover in numerous tissues throughout the body. The endometrial layer of the uterus shows steroid-dependent cyclic changes in structure and function. After a proliferative and secretory phase, steroid support is withdrawn and the uterine epithelium is shed. We hypothesize that the apoptosis(More)
It has recently been shown that the transcription factor Erg, an Ets family member, drives constitutive expression of the intercellular adhesion molecule 2 (ICAM-2) in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and that its expression is down-regulated by the pleiotropic cytokine tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha). To identify other Erg target(More)
Gene transfer by direct intramuscular injection of naked plasmid DNA has been shown to be a safe, simple but relatively inefficient method for gene delivery in vivo. Eukaryotic plasmid expression vectors incorporating the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) origin of replication (oriP) and EBNA1 gene have been shown to act as autonomous episomally replicating gene(More)
Analysis of the N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea (ENU)-induced repro42 mutation previously identified spermatogenesis associated 22 (Spata22) as a gene required for meiotic progression and fertility in both male and female mice, but its specific contribution to the process was unclear. Here, we report on a novel, null allele of Spata22 (Spata22Gt ) and confirm its(More)
