The gland maintains a continuous renewal of cells to ensure a dynamic balance between cell division, differentiation, growth arrest and apoptosis. Apoptosis is a frequent event in the anterior pituitary in which unwanted cells are eliminated without affecting neighboring(More)
Clusterin is shown to contain putative amphipathic alpha-helices that mediate hydrophobic interactions with numerous types of molecules and may be involved in clearance of cellular debris caused by cell injury or death. To assess this function in vivo, we have cloned the full-length cDNA encoding guinea fowl (Numida meleagris) clusterin and studied its(More)
