The aim of the present review is to synthesise and summarise our recent knowledge on the involvement of cholecystokinin (CCK) and gastrin peptides and their receptors in the control of digestive functions and more generally their role in the field of nutrition in mammals. First, we examined the release of these peptides from the gut, focusing on their(More)
We have previously shown that carboxymethyl dextran benzylamide (CMDB7), a heparin-like molecule, inhibits the growth of tumors xenografted in nude mice, angiogenesis, and metastasis by altering the binding of angiogenic growth factors, including platelet-derived growth factor, transforming growth factor beta, and fibroblast growth factor 2, to their(More)
We have previously shown a high frequency of allele loss at D6S193 (62%) on chromosomal arm 6q27 in ovarian tumours and mapped the minimal region of allele loss between D6S297 and D6S264 (3 cM). We isolated and mapped a single non-chimaeric YAC (17IA12, 260-280 kb) containing D6S193 and D6S297. A further extended bacterial contig (between D6S264 and D6S149)(More)
BACKGROUND Specific cis-elements and the associated trans-acting factors have been implicated in the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. In the era of genome wide analyses identifying novel trans-acting factors and cis-regulatory elements is a step towards understanding coordinated gene expression. UV-crosslink analysis is a standard method(More)
