The major surface glycoprotein (MSG) of Pneumocystis carinii is encoded by a family of related but distinct genes distributed throughout the P. carinii genome. Previous reports of the genomic and mRNA MSG structure suggested that there was a highly conserved 5'-untranslated region and a highly variable translated region. In the current study, we demonstrate(More)
The Cancer Genomics Hub (CGHub) is the online repository of the sequencing programs of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), including The Cancer Genomics Atlas (TCGA), the Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia (CCLE) and the Therapeutically Applicable Research to Generate Effective Treatments (TARGET) projects, with data from 25 different types of cancer. The CGHub(More)
The effect of human GH (hGH) on c-myc gene expression and cell proliferation in the Nb2 lymphoma cell line was examined. The addition of hormone to stationary cultures of Nb2 cells resulted in an increased accumulation of c-myc transcripts that was detectable within 15 min, reached a maximum induction of 25-fold in 3 h, and then gradually declined. Although(More)
The canine gastric mucosa has previously been shown to contain considerable amounts of a polypeptide with the immunologic and physicochemical characteristics and biologic activity of glucagon (IRG3500). Using mucosal pieces that remained viable for at least 8 h, we have demonstrated that IRG3500 is synthesized in this extrapancreatic tissue. Gel filtration(More)
To characterize the glucagon released in response to epineephrine in depancreatized dogs, plasma samples before and during epinephrine infusion were subjected to molecular-sieve chromatography on Bio-Gel P-30 columns. The chromatographic profile for extrapancreatic immunoreactive glucagon (eIRG) revealed two glucagon moieties of molecular weight 9,000 to(More)
Samples from 19 resected lung tumours have been analysed for the levels of GST alpha, mu and pi mRNA and protein. No significant survival disadvantage was found for patients with tumours containing any of the GST subtypes at the levels of either protein or mRNA. Both GST mu and GST pi mRNAs were expressed at significantly higher levels in squamous(More)
