Activation of T lymphocytes by Ags or cytokines results in translocation of the transcription factors NF-kappa B, AP-1, NFAT, and STAT from the cytoplasm into the nucleus. The first step in the nuclear import process is recognition of a nuclear localization sequence (NLS) within the karyophilic protein by a cytoplasmic receptor such as the importin(More)
An understanding of how oncogenes affect differentiated liver functions might lead to improved treatments for liver cancer or other disorders where liver-specific functions are compromised. A retroviral vector that coexpressed beta-galactosidase (beta-gal) and activated Ras genes (Ras-gal) was transduced into a small fraction of adult rat hepatocytes in(More)
The product of the HER-2 proto-oncogene, p185HER-2, was found to be amplified approximately 10-fold in the human breast carcinoma cell line, BT474, compared to a cell line, HBL-100, derived from normal breast tissue. To explore the possible role of p185HER-2 in growth of the breast carcinoma cells, we investigated factors that may modulate cell growth and(More)
