Hereditary hemochromatosis (HH) is a common autosomal recessive disease characterized by increased iron absorption and progressive iron storage that results in damage to major organs in the body. Recently, a candidate gene for HH called HFE encoding a major histocompatibility complex class I-like protein was identified by positional cloning. Nearly 90% of(More)
The level of expression of several cellular protooncogenes is examined at different stages of 7,12-dimethylbenzanthracene (DMBA)-induced tumor development in hamster buccal pouch epithelium (HBPE). Results presented demonstrate overexpression of c-Ha-ras gene at a very early stage of tumor development, and this elevated level of expression of the gene(More)
A recombinant retroviral vector (MFG-GC) was used to study the efficiency of transduction of the human gene encoding glucocerebrosidase (GC; D-glucosyl-N-acylsphingosine glucohydrolase, EC, in mouse hematopoietic stem cells and expression in their progeny. Transfer of the GC gene to CFU-S (spleen cell colony-forming units) in primary and secondary(More)
We purified many kinds of antifreeze proteins with high activity from the leaves of Ammopiptanthus mongolicus by several biochemical techniques. The antifreeze activities of these AFPs were measured by both osmometry and differential scanning calorimetry, and the inhibition of growth of ice crystals by the AFPs was obvious. Additionally, the antifreeze(More)
A clonal strain of human lung tumor cells in culture (ChaGo), derived from a bronchogenic carcinoma, synthesizes and secretes large amounts of alpha (alpha) and a comparatively lower level of beta (beta) subunit of the glycoprotein hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). ChaGo cells lost their characteristic anchorage-independent growth phenotype in(More)
One promising strategy for gene therapy of Gaucher disease involves ex vivo retroviral transduction of autologous hematopoietic stem cells. Studies in small animals have demonstrated that this approach provides a life-long supply of the glucocerebrosidase (GC) enzyme. Human application has developed to the stage of a clinical trial. In this study, we(More)
Experiments were performed to determine the rate at which hamster buccal pouch epithelium (HBPE) is committed to neoplastic development during a regimen of biweekly topical applications of 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) in mineral oil, administered for 1, 2, 3, 5 or 10 weeks. Evaluated indices of neoplastic commitment were: (i) primary tumor(More)
To investigate the expression of IgM in laryngeal cancer and the effect of anti-human IgM antibody on the proliferation, apoptosis and cell cycle of Hep-2 human LSCC cells, explore the potential mechanisms underlying its antitumor activity. The expression of IgM protein in Hep-2 cells was examined. The effects of anti-human IgM antibody on cell(More)
Dimethylbenzanthracene (DMBA) stimulates expression of P1-450 gene in human lung tumor cells (ChaGo). A concentration and time-dependent increase in the level of P1-450 specific mRNA sequences has been observed in ChaGo cells treated with sublethal concentrations of DMBA. The methylation pattern of "-CCGG-" sequence of most of the coding region and of the(More)
