Seven women in three generations of a family have been affected by Turner syndrome. Turner phenotype in this family is the result of deletion of the entire short arm of one X chromosome. The short arm deletion is transmitted by carriers of a balanced X-1 translocation. Autoradiographic findings showed that the deleted X chromosome was late labeling in those(More)
Histochemical assay for ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) activity in fixed frozen hepatic sections from a woman heterozygous for OTC deficiency revealed two populations of hepatocytes: those with normal activity and those with no activity. This observation, in conjunction with data from previous family studies, confirms the hypothesis that the gene for OTC(More)
The transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) family of cytokines and glucocorticoids regulate diverse biological processes through modulating the expression of target genes. Here we report that glucocorticoid receptor (GR) represses TGF-beta transcriptional activation of the type-1 plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) gene in a ligand-dependent manner.(More)
Incubation of HTC rat hepatoma cells with 8-bromo-cAMP results in a 3-fold increase in the rate of degradation of type-1 plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) mRNA. We have reported previously that the 3'-most 134 nt of the PAI-1 mRNA is able to confer cyclic nucleotide regulation of message stability onto a heterologous transcript. R-EMSA and UV(More)
Incubation of HTC rat hepatoma cells with the synthetic glucocorticoid dexamethasone rapidly inhibits tissue-type plasminogen activator activity by inducing a specific plasminogen activator-inhibitor (PAI-1). Using immobilized polyclonal antibodies raised against HT-1080 human fibrosarcoma PAI-1, we have purified HTC PAI-1 from serum-free medium conditioned(More)
The expression of urokinase-type plasminogen activator (u-PA) and its type-1 inhibitor (PAI-1) was examined in vivo in mouse wounds by in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry. u-PA mRNA was present in both basal and suprabasal keratinocytes in the regenerative epithelial outgrowths at the edge of the wounds. In the same area, PAI-1 mRNA was only(More)
Full-length cDNA for plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) was isolated from a human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC) lambda gt11 cDNA library. Three overlapping clones were identified by immunologic screening of 10(6) recombinant phage using a rabbit anti-human fibrosarcoma PAI-1 antiserum. The fusion proteins encoded by these three clones also(More)
We have reported previously that insulin causes a complete but reversible desensitization to insulin action in rat hepatoma HTC cells in tissue culture, and that this insulin resistance is mediated by postbinding mechanisms rather than receptor down-regulation (Heaton, J. H., and Gelehrter, T. D. (1981) J. Biol. Chem. 256, 12257-12262). We report here that(More)
Induced PAI-1 gene expression in renal epithelial (NRK-52E, clone EC-1) cells occurs as part of the immediate-early response to serum. PAI-1 transcripts are maximally expressed early in G(1) (within 4 h of serum addition to quiescent EC-1 cells) and then subsequently decline to basal levels prior to entry into DNA synthetic phase. Comparative analysis of(More)
