Many aspects of myogenesis are believed to be regulated by myoblast interactions with specific components of the extracellular matrix. For example, laminin has been found to promote adhesion, migration, and proliferation of mammalian myoblasts. Based on affinity chromatography, the alpha7beta1 integrin has been presumed to be the major receptor mediating(More)
Human cyclin A1 is a newly cloned, tissue-specific cyclin that is prominently expressed in normal testis. In this study, we showed that cyclin A1 was highly expressed in a subset of leukemia samples from patients. The highest frequency of cyclin A1 overexpression was observed in acute myelocytic leukemias, especially those that were at the promyelocyte (M3)(More)
Aflatoxin production and degradation were examined in three isolates of A. parasiticus. Maximum yields were present after incubation for 14 days and these declined gradually as the culture aged. Young mycelia (4 days old) synthesized the greatest amounts of aflatoxin, but aging mycelia (14 days old) were mainly responsible for degradation. Addition of(More)
Human cyclin A1, a newly discovered cyclin, is expressed in testis and is thought to function in the meiotic cell cycle. Here, we show that the expression of human cyclin A1 and cyclin A1-associated kinase activities was regulated during the mitotic cell cycle. In the osteosarcoma cell line MG63, cyclin A1 mRNA and protein were present at very low levels in(More)
This paper describes the development of a vaccine for the prevention of pregnancy in female cattle. The vaccine is based on the established principle that antibodies to the hypothalamic releasing hormone, gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) block the action of GnRH on pituitary secretion of luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone, leading to(More)
High performance liquid chromatography has been applied to the separation of the globin chains of 16 non-human species which include common mammalian and avian species. The procedure uses a large-pore C4 column which has been effectively employed for the separation of human globin chains. In many cases, the gradient for human chains with trifluoroacetic(More)
Delayed hypersensitivity to DNCB in chickens is a dose-dependent reaction. It could be induced by a single painting of the skin with 1 mg of DNCB/bird without adjuvant and could be elicited at a challenge site with 50 mug DNCB. The sensitisation lasted for several weeks, and was mediated by sensitised lymphoid cells which required the presence of autologous(More)
A crude mycelial protein extract from a 16-day-old culture of A. parasiticus, on purification, lost 50% of its ability to degrade aflatoxin B1. The addition of hydrogen peroxide increased this activity to 97% of that of the crude extract. Ducklings dosed orally with aflatoxin extracts from 14- and 20-day-old cultures containing 46 micrograms or more of(More)
The beta-gene-cluster haplotype and alpha-gene status were determined for 221 patients with sickle cell anemia, 41 with SC disease, and 21 with S-beta-thalassemia. Among SS patients, eleven beta S haplotypes were found in 21 combinations. Three haplotypes--the Benin (Ben) [---+-], the Central African Republic (CAR) [+---+], and the Senegal (Sen) [+-(More)
Unresponsiveness to dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB) in chickens sensitised with a supraoptimal dose of DNCB (2.5 mg/bird) is an active process mediated by spleen lymphoid cells. Preparations of spleen lymphocytes/monocytes, or non-adherent spleen lymphocytes alone, from supraoptimally sensitised chickens, when transferred into optimally sensitised outbred(More)
