Squamous cell lung carcinoma cells obtained from a patient who presented with leukocytosis and hypercalcemia were transplanted into nude mice and a serially transplantable cell line, OKa-N-1, was established. The nude mice transplanted with OKa-N-1 cells displayed leukocytosis and hypercalcemia. Serum levels of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF)(More)
An autopsy case of a 61 year old male with primary squamous cell carcinoma of the lung with associated marked leukocytosis and hypercalcemia is reported. High levels of serum parathyroid hormone-related peptide (PTHrP) and granulocyte colony stimulating factor (GCSF) were detected. The tumor cells distinctly showed positive cytoplasmic immunoreactions with(More)
We previously mapped a locus for porcine intramuscular fat content (IMF) by linkage analysis to a 17.1-cM chromosome interval on Sus scrofa chromosome 7 (SSC7) flanked by microsatellite markers SW1083 and SW581. In this study, we identified 34 microsatellite markers and 14 STSs from the 17.1-cM IMF quantitative trait loci (QTL) region corresponding to(More)
Peripheral blood cells from a female patient with Ph1-positive chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) in blast crisis were serially transplanted in BALB/c nude mice for 16 passages. This in vivo cell line, designated CML-N-1, had Ph1 chromosome abnormality and BCR gene rearrangement. The cells expressed CD11b, CD13, CD33, CD34, CD38, and HLA-DR antigens until(More)
—The output characteristics of state-of-the-art n-MOSFETs with effective channel lengths of 40 and 60 nm have been measured and compared with full-band Monte Carlo simulations. The device structures are obtained by process simulation based on comprehensive secondary ion mass spectroscopy and capacitance–voltage measurements. Good agreement between the(More)
We report a 52-year-old man with chronic myelogenous leukaemia (CML) who developed hypercalcaemia in blast crisis. There was a high serum level of parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP). The leukaemia cells secreted PTHrP into culture medium when cultured in vitro and were shown to express PTHrP mRNA by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction.(More)
An epithelioid sarcoma of the perineum of a 60-year-old man with widespread metastases produced leukocytosis, myeloid hyperplasia of the bone marrow, and splenomegaly. High titers of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) were found in the patient's serum and primary culture medium of the tumor tissue. The tumor tissue extract contained m-RNA for(More)
Previously we have established a clonal squamous cell carcinoma cell line OKa-C-1 derived from lung cancer of a patient with marked leukocytosis and hypercalcemia. OKa-C-1 cells simultaneously produce granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP) at the single cell level and cause paraneoplastic syndromes in(More)
