Feline immunodeficiency virus infection in cats of Japan.
A seroepidemiologic survey for feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) infection was conducted in Japan. Between June and December 1987, individual sera (n = 3,323) were submitted by veterinaryExpand

Comparison of Expression of Glucokinase Gene and Activities of Enzymes Related to Glucose Metabolism in Livers between Dog and Cat
Plasma glucose and immunoreactive insulin (IRI) concentrations and activities of enzymes related to glucose metabolism in livers were measured in dogs and cats. Nucleotide sequences of the conservedExpand

Pathologic features of acquired immunodeficiency-like syndrome in cats experimentally infected with feline immunodeficiency virus.
Five specific pathogen free cats were inoculated with feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) isolated in Japan to observe changes toward development of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-likeExpand

Comparison of the activities of enzymes related to glycolysis and gluconeogenesis in the liver of dogs and cats.
Activities of enzymes related to glucose metabolism were measured in canine and feline liver. There were no significant differences in plasma glucose and immunoreactive insulin concentrations betweenExpand

Development of the polymerase chain reaction assay based on the canine genome database for detection of monoclonality in B cell lymphoma.
From the canine genome database and its bioinformatic analysis, we identified conserved sequences within the vast majority of 61 variable segments and 1 joining segment of the immunoglobulin heavyExpand

Genomic organization of the T-cell receptor gamma gene and PCR detection of its clonal rearrangement in canine T-cell lymphoma/leukemia.
Because the T-cell receptor gamma (TCRgamma) gene is rearranged at an early stage of T-cell development in both TCRalphabeta and TCRgammadelta lineages, it has been preferentially targeted to detectExpand

Efficient generation of canine bone marrow-derived dendritic cells.
Because of their unsurpassed potency in presenting antigens to naive T cells, dendritic cells are considered to be an important candidate in the development of immunotherapeutic strategies. DespiteExpand

Establishment and biological characterization of canine histiocytic sarcoma cell lines.
Seven novel cell lines from canine histiocytic sarcoma (HS), three of which were disseminated cutaneous HS and four of which were synovial HS, were established. All of the established cell lines hadExpand

Effect of tyrosine kinase inhibition by imatinib mesylate on mast cell tumors in dogs.
BACKGROUND Imatinib mesylate is a small molecule targeted at dysregulated protein-tyrosine kinase. Mutation of c-kit exon 11, which induces constitutive phosphorylation of KIT, is one of theExpand
