We reported a case of renal graft loss in cadaveric renal transplantation. An episode biopsy with renal dysfunction showed plasma cell predominant inflammatory infiltration in the interstitium without a finding of vascular or glomerular rejection, and was diagnosed as plasma cell-rich acute rejection (PCAR). Despite intensive immunosuppressive therapy, the(More)
INTRODUCTION Large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) and small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) show considerable differences in their histology but share neuroendocrine (NE) characteristics and also genetic and/or expression patterns. METHODS We used the subtractive expression method to identify differences in gene expression that would allow(More)
The purpose of this study was to purify a calcium-binding protein (CalBP) from human spermatozoa of 226 men and to determine the localization of this protein in spermatozoa. The sperm cells were extracted with 0.6 M KCl, and the KCl extract was then subjected to gel filtration and high performance liquid chromatography. Two CalBPs of Mr = 38 kDa and 52 kDa(More)
Neuroendocrine tumors can develop in various organs. All of these tumors are designated on the basis of their morphologic characteristics evident by light microscopy, and by immunohistochemistry for antigens such as synaptophysin, chromogranin-A, and CD56/NCAM. In the present study, we attempted to demonstrate the localization of Zonula occludens-1 (ZO-1)(More)
Fibroblasts in tumor tissue are thought to interact with tumor cells directly and/or indirectly and to have important roles in tumor invasion and metastasis. To characterize the phenotype of proliferating fibroblasts in pulmonary adenocarcinoma, we established short-term fibroblast cell lines from both normal bronchus and adenocarcinoma tissues obtained(More)
