In the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, septation and constriction of the actomyosin ring for cell division are positively regulated by the Spg1 GTPase, a member of the Ras superfamily. Spg1 is negatively regulated by Byr4 and Cdc16, which together form a two-component GTPase-activating protein for the Spg1 GTPase. To better understand how Byr4(More)
The role of thymic functions in the development of insulin-dependent diabetes was investigated in athymic nude (nu/nu) mice and euthymic heterozygous (+/nu) littermates of BALB/c origin treated with streptozotocin. The injection of a single high dose of streptozotocin (200 mg/kg body weight) induced rapid and permanent hyperglycemia in both nu/nu and +/nu(More)
Clonal isolates of mouse 3T3 cells and primary rat embryo cells, recovered nonselectively after infection by simian virus 40 (SV40), have been tested for tumorigenicity in the immune-deficient nude mice in order to determine the cellular growth properties in vitro specifically correlated with neoplastic growth in vivo. In addition, mouse 3T3 cells(More)
The incidence of calcaneal fracture has been slowly increasing; however, the ideal treatment for displaced intra-articular fracture is not available yet, even though the fracture brings frequent complication and disability. Between April 1991 and March 1998, we treated 103 displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures of 92 patients surgically with limited(More)
Multiple subdiabetogenic doses of streptozotocin induce an insulin-dependent progressive hyperglycemia in genetically susceptible strains of mice. We have shown previously that T-cell-dependent autoimmune mechanisms play an obligatory role in this model of diabetogenesis by demonstrating that athymic nude mice and lethally irradiated euthymic mice are(More)
Fibronectin (FN; also called large external transformation-sensitive [LETS] protein or cell-surface protein [CSP]) is a large cell-surface glycoprotein that is frequently observed to be either absent or greatly reduced on the surfaces of malignant cells grown in vitro. Because FN may be a useful molecular marker of cellular malignancy, we have carried out(More)
Multiple low-dose injections of streptozotocin (STZ) induce a delayed but progressively increasing state of hyperglycemia in mice. Different inbred strains of mice show different susceptibility to this treatment. We examined whether genetic factors associated with the H-2 complex influence the susceptibility or resistance, using a selected group of 12(More)
Two stable mouse cell mutants Ao and RAG, which are resistant to 8-azaguanine and deficient in hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyl transferase (HGPRT), have been studied in order to establish the nature of molecular changes conferring the mutant phenotypes. A specific precipitating rabbit antiserum was prepared against the normal HGPRT purified from mouse(More)
