Mouse mammary tumor virus integration regions int-1 and int-2 map on different mouse chromosomes
Two regions of mouse DNA which constitute common provirus integration sites in tumors induced by mouse mammary tumor virus have been identified and designated int-1 and int-2 and it is possible that proviral activation of two distinct cellular genes may result in the same neoplastic disease.
Structure, chromosome mapping and expression of the murine Fgf-6 gene.
The murine Fgf-6 gene is located in a region distinct from the Int-41 locus and belongs to a linkage group conserved between chromosome 12 in man and chromosome 6 in mouse and presents an intrinsic oncogenic capacity since it is able to transform cultured fibroblasts.
Human endothelial cell growth factor: cloning, nucleotide sequence, and chromosome localization.
The complete amino acids sequence of human ECGF was deduced from the nucleic acid sequence of these clones; it encompasses all the well-characterized acidic endothelial cell polypeptide mitogens described by several laboratories.
Cloning and characterization of an androgen-induced growth factor essential for the androgen-dependent growth of mouse mammary carcinoma cells.
It is clear that the androgen-induced growth of SC-3 cells is mediated in an autocrine manner by AIGF, which is secreted by the tumor cells themselves in response to hormonal stimuli.
Human KGF is FGF-related with properties of a paracrine effector of epithelial cell growth.
The complementary DNA sequence of KGF demonstrates that it is a member of the fibroblast growth factor family, and the KGF transcript was present in stromal cells derived from epithelial tissues.
Emergence of the keratinocyte growth factor multigene family during the great ape radiation.
The pattern of evolutionary occurrence suggests that a primordial KGF gene was amplified and chromosomally dispersed subsequent to the divergence of orangutan from African apes but before the trichotomous divergence of human, chimpanzee, and gorilla 5-8 million years ago.
Molecular cloning of a novel cytokine cDNA encoding the ninth member of the fibroblast growth factor family, which has a unique secretion property.
Restricted gene expression in organs and the unique secretion nature of the protein suggest that FGF-9 plays a physiological role which differs from those of well-characterized acidic FGF and basic FGF.
The FGF-related oncogenes hst and int.2, and the bcl.1 locus are contained within one megabase in band q13 of chromosome 11, while the fgf.5 oncogene maps to 4q21.
It is demonstrated by pulsed field gel analysis that these two genes are separated by only 40 kb, locate three HTF islands in their neighbourhood, and show that the bcl.1 locus (translocation breakpoint in B-cell proliferative malignancies) is not more than 1050 kb away.
