A combination of stem cell factor and granulocyte colony‐stimulating factor enhances the growth of human progenitor B cells supported by murine stromal cell line MS‐5
We have developed a long‐term culture system using the murine bone marrow stromal cells MS‐5 to support the growth of progenitor B cells with CD34–, CD10+, CD19+, and cytoplasmic μ chainExpand

Irritated seborrheic keratosis of the external ear canal
Although a seborrheic keratosis is not rare on the skin of the trunk, extremities, head and neck of an elderly person, it is uncommon to originate in the external ear canal. Even rarer, an irritatedExpand

Tumor growth inhibitory activity of a lymphocyte blastogenesis inhibitory factor.
A lymphocyte blastogenesis inhibitory factor (LBIF) has been characterized as an immunoregulatory molecule, especially on the T-lymphocyte proliferation. Using fast protein liquidExpand

The Solvent Extraction of Alkali Metal Picrates by Benzo-15-crown-5
Benzo-15-crown-5 (B15C5) extracted alkali metal picrates (MA) into benzene by forming M(B15C5)A or M(B15C5)2A complexes and moreover, in the presence of tributyl phosphate (B), B15C5 extractedExpand

Heat- or stress-inducible transformation-associated cell surface antigen on the activated H-ras oncogene-transfected rat fibroblast.
A WKA rat fetus fibroblast (WFB) was transfected by several oncogenes including EJras (activated H-ras), polyoma middle T (PyMT), v-src, c-myc, and adenovirus type 12 E1A-E1B. We analyzed theExpand

Inherited hyperactivation of L-arginine synthesis in gamma + B lymphocytes of systemic autoimmune MRL mice.
The hyperactivation of B lymphocytes of MRL mice, which are an animal model for human systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), is characterized as the preferential propagation of gamma + B lymphocytes andExpand

T‐Cell Receptor Gene Structures of HLA‐A26‐restricted Cytotoxic T Lymphocyte Lines against Human Autologous Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma
We isolated two cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) lines, which were independently obtained by mixed lymphocyte‐tumor cell culture from tumor‐infiltrating lymphocytes of a patient with pancreaticExpand

Identification of natural antigenic peptides of a human gastric signet ring cell carcinoma recognized by HLA-A31-restricted cytotoxic T lymphocytes.
Peptides of human melanomas recognized by CD8+ CTLs have been identified, but the nature of those of nonmelanoma tumors remains to be elucidated. Previously, we established a gastric signet ring cellExpand
