HIV-1 Nef protein shares a significant homology with the immunosuppressive and highly conserved retroviral transmembrane protein p15E. In the present study, extracellular Nef protein is shown to induce interleukin (IL)-10 mRNA expression in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells as well as in cells of H9 T and U937 promonocytic human cell lines.

The effects of recombinant gp41 (rgp41) protein of the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) on interleukin 10 (IL-10) expression and production using human peripheral blood mononuclear cells was investigated. Expression of IL-10 mRNA was demonstrated within 3 h of cell exposure to endotoxin-free rgp41 by RT-PCR and Northern blot analyses in a time-(More)
Calorie restriction reduces mammary mitogenesis and tumorigenesis. To test whether epidermal growth factor (EGF) levels are influenced by calorie intake, 72 four-week-old C3H/HeOu mice were separated into two groups and either fed ad libitum (group AL) or calorie-restricted at a mean 19% (group CR). Three mice from each group were evaluated when 6, 8, 10,(More)
Calorie restriction reduces mammary mitogenesis and tumorigenesis. To test whether epidermal growth factor (EOF) levels are influenced by calorie intake, 72 four-week-old C3H/HeOu mice were separated into two groups and either fed ad libitum (group AL) or calorie-restricted at a mean 19% (group CR).

The format of an application to the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) frequently is designed to obtain detailed information from medical faculty proposing studies involving a precisely determined number of a few well-characterized species in a controlled laboratory setting. Unfortunately, these application formats typically are less than(More)
