Rab proteins are involved in many aspects of dynamic vesicle processing within eukaryotic cells. We have previously identified Rab11 in gastric parietal cell tubulovesicle membranes. We have produced a monoclonal antibody that is specific for Rab11. In all rabbit tissues examined, Rab11 immunoreactivity was highly enriched in epithelial cells. In the(More)
Foreword To live, learn, and work successfully in an increasingly complex, information-rich and knowledge-based society, students and teachers must utilize technology effectively. Within a sound educational setting, technology can enable students to become: • Capable information technology users • Information seekers, analyzers, and evaluators • Problem(More)
Combining fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and indirect immunofluorescence staining of protein markers provides a highly specific method for identifying chromosomes in phenotypically defined cells and tissues. We developed a technique enabling dual chromosome painting and immunofluorescence staining of archival formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded(More)
The effect of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (ISTM) on passive properties and inflammation in human skeletal muscle has not been evaluated. Passive properties of muscle, inflammatory myokines and subjective reporting of functional ability were used to identify the effects of ISTM on the plantar flexors. 11 healthy men were measured for passive(More)

Transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF alpha) is a potent mitogen for epithelial cells that has been localized to normal human appendageal epithelia. To further understand the role of TGF alpha in human appendages, we examined TGF alpha expression immunohistochemically in 17 types of human appendageal tumors differentiating toward hair follicles, eccrine,(More)
