Laminin alpha 2, a sub-unit of the basement membrane component laminin-2, is deficient in the dy/dy and allelic dy2 J/dy2 J mouse. It is also the defective protein in a proportion of children with congenital muscular dystrophy. Linkage and mutational analysis have established that this is a primary effect caused by defects in the LAMA2 gene. Laminin alpha 2(More)
The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) tests for Salmonella in meat, poultry, and egg products through three regulatory testing programs: the Pathogen Reduction-Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (PR-HACCP) program, the ready-to-eat program for meat and poultry products, and the pasteurized egg products program. From 1998 through 2003,(More)
We have previously shown that the transcription factor AP-1 regulates the expression of genes which allow neoplastically transformed rat fibroblasts to become invasive. Searches for further AP-1 target genes led to the identification of a gene encoding a novel rat kelch family member, named kelch related protein 1 (Krp1). Kelch family members are(More)
Monophasic compound action potentials were recorded from Rana sciatic nerves. Three distinct peaks were observed and designated A alpha, A delta and C. All peaks were abolished by replacement of the external medium with Na(+)-free solution. However, the C peak alone was unaffected by external application of 1 microM tetrodotoxin (TTX), both A peaks were(More)
The prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) EP4 subtype is one of four prostanoid receptors that use PGE2 as the preferred ligand. We have investigated the agonist-mediated regulation of EP4 using a multifaceted approach. Short-term (30 min) agonist challenge of recombinant EP4 expressed in human embryonic kidney 293 cells (EP4-HEK293 cells) with PGE2 (1 microM) resulted(More)

Glutaraldehyde fixed patch grafts of bovine pericardium were implanted in myocardial windows in young (3-4 months old) sheep. The samples were retrieved after one to three weeks for study with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive x-ray microanalysis (EDX). A layer of porous material (pseudoneointima, PNI), consisting mostly of a dense(More)

Pericardial patch grafts were implanted in the hearts of young sheep for periods ranging from two to 120 days. Explants seven to 21 days old revealed the formation of a "pseudoneointima" (PNI) on the blood contacting surface of the pericardium. The PNI was more heavily mineralized than the pericardium. Mineralization was most intense on the blood contacting(More)
