The formation of clumps of RED BLOOD CELLS under low or non-flow conditions, resulting from the attraction forces between the red blood cells. The cells adhere to each other in rouleaux aggregates. Slight mechanical force, such as occurs in the circulation, is enough to disperse these aggregates. Stronger or weaker than normal aggregation may result from a variety of effects in the ERYTHROCYTE MEMBRANE or in BLOOD PLASMA. The degree of aggregation is affected by ERYTHROCYTE DEFORMABILITY, erythrocyte membrane sialylation, masking of negative surface charge by plasma proteins, etc. BLOOD VISCOSITY and the ERYTHROCYTE SEDIMENTATION RATE are affected by the amount of erythrocyte aggregation and are parameters used to measure the aggregation.
The internal resistance of the BLOOD to shear forces.

Mechanisms of GDF-5 action during skeletal development. (1/2029)

Mutations in GDF-5, a member of the TGF-beta superfamily, result in the autosomal recessive syndromes brachypod (bp) in mice and Hunter-Thompson and Grebe-type chondrodysplasias in humans. These syndromes are all characterised by the shortening of the appendicular skeleton and loss or abnormal development of some joints. To investigate how GDF-5 controls skeletogenesis, we overexpressed GDF-5 during chick limb development using the retrovirus, RCASBP. This resulted in up to a 37.5% increase in length of the skeletal elements, which was predominantly due to an increase in the number of chondrocytes. By injecting virus at different stages of development, we show that GDF-5 can increase both the size of the early cartilage condensation and the later developing skeletal element. Using in vitro micromass cultures as a model system to study the early steps of chondrogenesis, we show that GDF-5 increases chondrogenesis in a dose-dependent manner. We did not detect changes in proliferation. However, cell suspension cultures showed that GDF-5 might act at these stages by increasing cell adhesion, a critical determinant of early chondrogenesis. In contrast, pulse labelling experiments of GDF-5-infected limbs showed that at later stages of skeletal development GDF-5 can increase proliferation of chondrocytes. Thus, here we show two mechanisms of how GDF-5 may control different stages of skeletogenesis. Finally, our data show that levels of GDF-5 expression/activity are important in controlling the size of skeletal elements and provides a possible explanation for the variation in the severity of skeletal defects resulting from mutations in GDF-5.  (+info)

Analysis of the stimulation-inhibition paradox exhibited by lymphocytes exposed to concanavalin A. (2/2029)

High doses of Concanavalin A (Con A), which normally inhibit T-lymphocyte stimulation as measured by increases in DNA synthesis, cause these lymphocytes to become committed to mitogenesis while also generating a dominant but reversible negative growth signal. The observed response to the stimulatory signal as measured by the rate of commitment to enter the S phase (i.e., the rate at which the stimulation becomes lectin independent) increases with lectin concentration even in the inhibitory range. The generation of this positive signal is prevented by treating the cells with colchicine. Cells that have become committed but are also simultaneously blocked from entering the S phase by the high doses of Con A can begin synthesizing DNA if the lectin is released by adding a competitive inhibitor of binding. Experiments done in agarose cultures in which lymphocytes are kept from contact with each other suggest that the reversible inhibitory signal is mediated by structures in the individual cells rather than as a result of agglutination. Continuously dividing cells of the lymphoid line P388 are also individually and reversibly inhibited by Con A. These findings are considered in terms of the relation of the inhibitory signal to the microtubular components of cell surface modulating assemblies made up of submembranous arrays of microtubules, microfilaments, and associated proteins.  (+info)

The pro-phenoloxidase of coleopteran insect, Tenebrio molitor, larvae was activated during cell clump/cell adhesion of insect cellular defense reactions. (3/2029)

To characterize the proteins involved in cell clump/cell adhesion of insect cellular defense reactions, we induced the cell clump/cell adhesion reaction in vitro with the hemolymph of larvae of the coleopteran insect, Tenebrio molitor. The 72 kDa protein was specifically enriched in the residues of cell clump/cell adhesion and was purified to homogeneity. A cDNA clone for the 72 kDa protein was isolated. We found that the 72 kDa protein was an activated phenoloxidase from Tenebrio pro-phenoloxidase. We suggest that activated phenoloxidase is involved in the cell clump/cell adhesion reaction as well as in the synthesis of melanin.  (+info)

Distinct functions of alpha3 and alpha(v) integrin receptors in neuronal migration and laminar organization of the cerebral cortex. (4/2029)

Changes in specific cell-cell recognition and adhesion interactions between neurons and radial glial cells regulate neuronal migration as well as the establishment of distinct layers in the developing cerebral cortex. Here, we show that alpha3beta1 integrin is necessary for neuron-glial recognition during neuronal migration and that alpha(v) integrins provide optimal levels of the basic neuron-glial adhesion needed to maintain neuronal migration on radial glial fibers. A gliophilic-to-neurophilic switch in the adhesive preference of developing cortical neurons occurs following the loss of alpha3beta1 integrin function. Furthermore, the targeted mutation of the alpha3 integrin gene results in abnormal layering of the cerebral cortex. These results suggest that alpha3beta1 and alpha(v) integrins regulate distinct aspects of neuronal migration and neuron-glial interactions during corticogenesis.  (+info)

Multiple developmental roles for CRAC, a cytosolic regulator of adenylyl cyclase. (5/2029)

Receptor-mediated activation of adenylyl cyclase (ACA) in Dictyostelium requires CRAC protein. Upon translocation to the membrane, this pleckstrin homology (PH) domain protein stimulates ACA and thereby mediates developmental aggregation. CRAC may also have roles later in development since CRAC-null cells can respond to chemotactic signals and participate in developmental aggregation when admixed with wild-type cells, but they do not complete development within such chimeras. To test whether the role of CRAC in postaggregative development is related to the activation of ACA, chemotactic aggregation was bypassed in CRAC-null cells by activating the cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA). While such strains formed mounds, they did not complete fruiting body morphogenesis or form spores. Expression of CRAC in the prespore cells of these strains rescued sporulation and fruiting body formation. This later function of CRAC does not appear to require its PH domain since the C-terminal portion of the protein (CRAC-DeltaPH) can substitute for full-length CRAC in promoting spore cell formation and morphogenesis. No detectable ACA activation was observed in any of the CRAC-null strains rescued by PKA activation and expression of CRAC-DeltaPH. Finally, we found that the development of CRAC-null ACA-null double mutants could be rescued by the activation of PKA together with the expression of CRAC-DeltaPH. Thus, there appears to be a required function for CRAC in postaggregative development that is independent of its previously described function in the ACA activation pathway.  (+info)

Origin of the integrin-mediated signal transduction. Functional studies with cell cultures from the sponge Suberites domuncula. (6/2029)

Sponges (phylum Porifera) represent the phylogenetically oldest metazoan animals. Recently, from the marine sponge Geodia cydonium a first cDNA encoding a putative integrin receptor molecule was isolated. In the present study basic functional experiments have been conducted to test the hypothesis that in sponges integrin polypeptides also function as adhesion molecules and as outside-in signaling molecules. The sponge Suberites domuncula has been used for the experiments because from this sponge only has a cell culture been established. Here we report that aggregation factor (AF)-mediated cell-cell adhesion is blocked by the RGDS peptide which is known to interact with beta integrin. Both RGDS and AF were found to stimulate DNA synthesis within 24 h. The beta subunit of the integrin receptor was cloned from S. domuncula; the estimated 91-kDa molecule comprises the characteristic signatures. Evolutionary conservation of the beta integrin was assessed by comparison with corresponding beta integrin subunits from evolutionary higher metazoan taxa. Addition of RGDS or of AF to isolated cells of S. domuncula causes a rapid (within 1-2 min) increase in the intracellular Ca2+ concentration which is further augmented in the presence of Ca2+. Furthermore, incubation of the cells with RGDS or AF causes an activation of the GTP-binding protein Ras. In addition it is shown that after a prolonged incubation of the cells with RGDS and AF the expression of the genes coding for Ras and for calmodulin is upregulated. These results suggest that the integrin receptor functions in the sponge system not only as adhesion molecule but also as a molecule involved in outside-in signaling.  (+info)

E-cadherin mediates aggregation-dependent survival of prostate and mammary epithelial cells through the retinoblastoma cell cycle control pathway. (7/2029)

E-cadherin and the retinoblastoma tumor suppressor (Rb) are traditionally associated with diverse regulatory aspects of cell growth and differentiation. However, we have discovered new evidence, which suggests that these proteins are functionally linked in a physiologic pathway required for cell survival and programmed cell death. Pharmacological activation of protein kinase C (PKC) or inducible overexpression and activation of the alpha isozyme of PKC (PKCalpha) resulted in approximately 60% apoptosis of mammary and prostate epithelial cells. Interestingly, the surviving cells had undergone dramatic aggregation concurrent with increased E-cadherin expression. When aggregation was inhibited by the addition of an E-cadherin-blocking antibody, apoptosis increased synergistically. We hypothesized that survival of the aggregated population was associated with contact-inhibited growth and that apoptosis might result from aberrant growth regulatory signals in non-aggregated, cycling cells. This hypothesis was confirmed by experiments that demonstrated that E-cadherin-dependent aggregation resulted in Rb-mediated G1 arrest and survival. Immunoblot analysis and flow cytometry revealed that hypophosphorylated Rb was present in non-aggregated, S phase cultures concurrent with synergistic cell death. We have also determined that the loss of membrane E-cadherin and subsequent hypophosphorylation of Rb in luminal epithelial cells preceded apoptosis induced by castration. These findings provide compelling evidence that suggests that E-cadherin-mediated aggregation results in Rb activation and G1 arrest that is critical for survival of prostate and mammary epithelial cells. These data also indicate that Rb can initiate a fatal growth signal conflict in non-aggregated, cycling cells when the protein is hypophosphorylated as these epithelial cells enter S phase.  (+info)

Differential responses to CD40 ligation among Burkitt lymphoma lines that are uniformly responsive to Epstein-Barr virus latent membrane protein 1. (8/2029)

Ligation of CD40 on the surface of B cells induces multiple phenotypic effects, many of which are mimicked by the EBV latent membrane protein 1 (LMP1) through its interaction with downstream components of the CD40 signaling pathway. Because the effects of LMP1 have been most closely studied in human Burkitt Lymphoma (BL) cell lines retaining a tumor biopsy-like phenotype in vitro, we have examined the response of a panel of such lines to CD40 ligation. Two distinct patterns of response were observed that were unrelated to the surface level of CD40 or to the EBV genome status of the lines. Following exposure to either CD40-specific mAbs or the soluble trimeric ligand (sCD40L), high responder (HR) lines showed rapid aggregation, activation of NF-kappa B, up-regulation of cell surface markers ICAM-1/CD54 and Fas/CD95, and growth inhibition. Aggregation was seen at lower doses than those required to elicit the other effects. By contrast, low responder (LR) lines showed no detectable response to CD40 mAbs, while their responses to sCD40L were limited to activation of NF-kappa B and up-regulation of CD95 only. However, in transfection experiments, LMP1 uniformly induced the full spectrum of phenotypic effects in both HR and LR lines. We conclude that some BL cell lines show a highly restricted response to CD40 ligation but remain fully susceptible to LMP1.  (+info)

So this is looking at the cellular aggregates and what we noticed, this is consistent with what weve seen in the animal models as well as what weve seen in the PDE9 study, that when a patient is reporting a VOC, we actually see an increase in cellular aggregates in terms of the monocyte platelet aggregates as well as the neutrophil platelet aggregates when you look at baseline comparison. In addition, we did see some changes in adhesion to P-selectin under flow conditions shown in the bottom. So both of these we do see changes in aggregates when a patient is self-reporting a VOC. So in addition to the other biomarkers that we said, we also took clinical laboratories and this is looking at the standard hemoglobin, hemoglobin F, nucleated red blood cells, eosinophiles as well as C-reactive protein. Interestingly, eosinophiles ...
Clone DB105 recognizes the CD44 antigen. CD44 is a marker for many types of cancer stem cells (CSCs), including breast CSCs that possess higher tumorigenicity and metastatic potential, colorectal, pancreatic, and prostate CSCs. In addition, expression was observed in several cancers as well as on carcinoma cell lines. Here, CD44 plays a role in cancer cell migration and matrix adhesion in response to a cellular microenvironment, thus enhancing cellular aggregation and tumor cell growth. CD44 is also expressed on mesodermal cells, such as hematopoietic, fibroblastic, and glial cells. - Österreich

Scientists estimate that planet Earth formed about 4.5 billion years ago as part of the formation of the solar system. It was only about one billion years later that the first unicellular organisms made their debut, and it took about two billion years more for multicellular organisms to appear. Initially these were simple cellular aggregates that later on evolved into more complex life forms with distinct tissues and organs. The most dramatic segment of evolution took place about a half billion years ago when over a "brief” period of 30 million years the foundations were laid for all the groups of animals that still surround us today. The following video describes the basics of how life is believed to have emerged and evolved on Earth, from the formation of DNA to the appearance of human beings. It should be mentioned that the video contains several inaccuracies on which I will elaborate in the following paragraphs.

Exposure of Sulfolobus solfataricus to the DNA damaging agents UV-irradiation, bleomycin or mitomycin C induces cellular aggregation.[2] Other physical stressors, such as pH or temperature shift, do not induce aggregation, suggesting that induction of aggregation is caused specifically by DNA damage. Ajon et al.[3] showed that UV-induced cellular aggregation mediates chromosomal marker exchange with high frequency. Recombination rates exceeded those of uninduced cultures by up to three orders of magnitude. Frols et al.[2][4] and Ajon et al.[3] hypothesized that the UV-inducible DNA transfer process and subsequent homologous recombinational repair represents an important mechanism to maintain chromosome integrity. This response may be a primitive form of sexual interaction, similar to the more well-studied bacterial transformation that is also associated with DNA transfer between cells leading to homologous recombinational repair of DNA damage.[5] In another related species, Sulfolobus ...

The species-specific cell adhesion in the marine sponge Microciona prolifera involves the interaction of an extracellular proteoglycan-like macromolecular complex, otherwise known as aggregation factor. In the interaction, two highly polyvalent functional domains play a role: a cell-binding and a self-interaction domain. The self-recognition has been characterized as a Ca2+-dependent carbohydrate-carbohydrate ... read more interaction of repetitive low affinity carbohydrate epitopes. One of the involved epitopes is the pyruvated trisaccharide b-D-Galp4,6(R)Pyr-(1→4)-b-D-GlcpNAc-(1→3)-LFucp. To evaluate the role of this trisaccharide in the proteoglycan-proteoglycan self-recognition, b-D-Galp4,6(R)Pyr-(1→4)-b-D-GlcpNAc-(1→3)-a-L-Fucp-(1→O)(CH2)3S(CH2)6SH was synthesized, and partially converted into gold glyconanoparticles.

The fixation of dissociated chick embryonic cells in the presence of ruthenium red or alcian blue revealed a remarkable reduction in the binding of these cations to cell surfaces following tryptic digestion at 37 °C, but not after trypsin used at 4 °C or EDTA.. The reconstitution of anionic sites present over the cell plasma membrane was studied in retina, liver and heart cells from embryos of different ages, cultivated according to a method which promotes cell reaggregation. All these cells regenerated ruthenium red-stainability within the first hour of culture. Culturing at 15 °C, substitution of saline for the culture medium or addition of puromycin or of neuraminidase to the culture media did not affect this restitutive process. Neuraminidase and hyaluronidase digestion were not able to alter the ruthenium red-binding, once it was present.. From these data and from the reports available in the literature it has been concluded that the anionic binding-sites cannot be identified with the ...

Related Transcriptional Enhancer Factor-1 (RTEF-1) has been suggested to induce angiogenesis through regulating target genes. Whether RTEF-1 has a direct role in angiogenesis and what specific genes are involved in RTEF-1 driven angiogenisis have not been elucidated. We found that over-expressing RTEF-1 in Human dermal microvascular endothelial cells-1 (HMEC-1) significantly increased endothelial cell aggregation, growth and migration while the processes were inhibited by siRNA of RTEF-1. In addition, we observed that Endothelial differentiation gene-1 (Edg-1) expression was up-regulated by RTEF-1 at the transcriptional level. RTEF-1 could bind to Edg-1 promoter and subsequently induce its activity. Edg-1 siRNA significantly blocked RTEF-1-driven increases in endothelial cell aggregation in a Matrigel assay and retarded RTEF-1-induced endothelial cell growth and migration. Pertussis Toxin (PTX), a Gi/Go protein sensitive inhibitor, was found to inhibit RTEF-1 driven endothelial cell aggregation ...
The reaggregation of dissociated cells to form organotypic structures provides an in vitro system for the analysis of the cellular interactions and molecular mechanisms involved in the formation of tissue architecture. The retina, an outgrowth of the forebrain, is a precisely layered neural tissue, yet the mechanisms underlying layer formation are largely unexplored. Here we describe the protocol to dissociate, re-aggregate, and culture zebrafish retinal cells from a transgenic, Spectrum of Fates, line where all main cell types are labelled with a combination of fluorescent proteins driven by fate-specific promoters. These cells re-aggregate and self-organize in just 48 h in minimal culture conditions. We also describe how the patterning in these aggregates can be analyzed using isocontour profiling to compare whether different conditions affect their self-organization ...
Mechanistically, IgSF9 and IgSF9b share similarities, but also seem to have distinct properties. Both CAMs mediate homophilic adhesion or homotypic aggregation and are not sufficient to induce synapse formation. Both proteins are localized at inhibitory synapses. Interestingly, IgSF9b was shown to act on the postsynaptic side of inhibitory synapses onto interneurons (Woo et al., 2013), whereas our study suggests that IgSF9 is enriched on the presynaptic side and is required for inhibitory synapse onto pyramidal neurons. Whether IgSF9 and IgSF9b are necessary in either the presynaptic or postsynaptic compartment in vivo will require conditional knock-out mice and is a direction of future studies.. The most striking difference between IgSF9 and IgSF9b was the role of their respective intracellular domains (ICDs). The ICD of IgSF9b was shown to interact with Neuroligin-2 by way of the scaffolding protein S-SCAM and it was suggested, although not formally shown, that this interaction is necessary ...
The researchers took on one of the most insidious problems, compound aggregation, in which small molecules form colloids that bind to and partially denature proteins, causing false positives in all sorts of assays. This can happen even at nanomolar concentrations of compound, and is all the more problematic at higher concentrations used in fragment screening and early hit to lead optimization. In many cases aggregates can be disrupted or passivated by including nonionic detergents such as Triton X-100 or Tween-80, but not all assays tolerate detergent, and some aggregates form even in the presence of detergent ...

We specialize in using statistical and soft matter physics methods and advanced computational tools to understand stabilities and dynamic transitions of various molecular and cellular biosystems, from single biomolecules, assemblies, to cell dynamics. We are particularly interested in mechanical structures at the nanometer to micrometer scale. Our research spans from internal motions of biomolecules (often near equilibrium) to subcellular assemblies and cell aggregation, which can be far-from-equilibrium systems. These nanoscale molecular machines are not only quite complicated structurally, but have evolved intriguing functions responding to many environmental pressures. It is both fun and important to answer questions such as: How stable and robust are their functions? Under what conditions will they fail? How quickly can such molecules carry out their functions? How does a molecule actually pick out one unique, or maybe a few conformations, from an astronomical number of possibilities? How ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - A study of whole blood platelet and white cell aggregation using a laser flow aggregometer. AU - Sun, J.. AU - Abel, E. W.. AU - Bancroft, A.. AU - McLaren, M.. AU - Belch, J. J. F.. PY - 2003. Y1 - 2003. N2 - Both platelet aggregation and white blood cell aggregation are involved in pathological processes such as thrombosis, atherosclerosis and chronic inflammation. People in older age groups are likely to suffer from cardiovascular diseases and may have increased white cell and platelet aggregation which could contribute to this increased risk. This study aimed to compare white cell and platelet aggregation between different age and gender groups. Whole blood white cell aggregation and platelet aggregation were carried out on healthy volunteers using cytometric techniques. It was found that both white cell and platelet aggregation in the elderly group (white cell aggregation median value, 0.08; range, 0.02-0.14; platelet aggregation median value, 0.32; range, 0.1-0.39) were ...
Membrane interaction in aggregating cells of Dictyostelium discoideum can be blocked by univalent antibodies directed against specific membrane sites. Using a quantitative technique for measuring cell association, two classes of target sites for blocking antibodies were distinguished and their developmental dynamics studied. One class of these sites is specific for aggregation-competent cells, their quantity rising from virtually 0-level during growth, with a steep increase shortly before cell aggregation. The serological activity of these structures is species specific; they are not detectable in a nonaggregating mutant, but present in a revertant undergoing normal morphogenesis. Patterns of cell assembly in the presence of antibodies show that selective blockage of these membrane sites abolishes the preference for end-to-end association which is typical for aggregating cells. A second class of target sites is present in comparable quantities in particle fractions from both growth-phase and ...
The aggregation phenomenon in lactococci has been studied for more than thirty years. It was found to be directly associated with a sex factor and lactose plasmid co-integration event [1] or duplication of the cell wall spanning (CWS) domain of PrtP proteinase [2]. Lactose plasmid conjugation in Lactococcus lactis 712 and in the related strains C2 and ML3, frequently involves plasmid co-integration with a sex factor. Moreover, this phenomenon is often associated with a cell aggregation phenotype and high frequency transfer ability [3-5]. The lactococcal sex factor exists integrated in the chromosome [6], although it can be excised as a closed circular form and lost from the cell [1]. Deletion and over-expression experiments confirmed that CluA is the only sex factor component responsible for aggregation in L. lactis. This 136 kDa surface-bound protein, encoded by the chromosomally located sex factor of Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris MG1363, is associated with cell aggregation linked to ...

The purpose of these studies was to determine whether hematogenous clonal pulmonary melanoma metastases originate from the expansion of a single cell and if so, by extrapolation, metastasis can be considered a cloning process. Three different cell lines of murine K-1735 melanoma with different metastatic properties and unique karyotypes were injected i.v. into syngeneic C3H/HeN mice as multicell aggregates of individual cell lines or combinations of cell lines. Resultant solitary lung metastases were isolated in culture as individual lines and then karyotyped. Even when heterogeneous clumps of tumor cells were injected, the individual metastases exhibited a karyotype unique to one metastatic cell type. Furthermore, when cellular aggregates were composed of metastatic cells admixed with cells that were tumorigenic but nonmetastatic, the resultant metastases exhibited only the karyotype of the metastatic cells. This finding suggests that the presence of metastatic cells did not change the ...
The study clearly showed that the gene correction procedures did not impair the full pluripotentiality of iPS cells, said Shinya Yamanaka (director of the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application at Kyoto University). Yamanaka is the father of the iPS field. In 2006 his laboratory was the first to coax adult mouse fibroblasts into an undifferentiated state through the expression of 4 transcription factors: Oct4, Sox2, Klf4, and c-Myc.4. Yamanaka said that the findings of the German group indicate a possibility that human iPS cells generated from people with genetic defects may be repaired and have the similar abilities. The work should encourage researchers to improve differentiation methods from iPS cells into functional cells.. An intriguing aspect of the study was the relatively high efficiency at which the groups approach yielded full-term surviving pups. Up to 60% of cellular aggregates from tetraploid complementation generated surviving pups, and a significant number of the pups ...
Because sponges (Porifera) are generally the dominant group of multicellular animals found in the marine benthos they are key animals for the testing of biomarkers in this biotope. Previously, it was shown that the heat shock protein hsp70 from the marine sponge Geodia cydonium is a useful biomarker for following biological responses to selected physical and chemical stressors. One protein which is critical for hsp70 function in other organisms is the DnaJ-like protein. In this study we therefore isolated and characterized a cDNA encoding the DnaJ-like protein from G. cydonium designated GCDNAJ. GCDNAJ is 1476 base pairs (bp) long with a 1236 bp open reading frame encoding a protein of 45542 daltons. Northern blot analysis revealed a transcript size of 1.5 kilobase (kb). The deduced amino acid (aa) sequence of GCDNAJ contains motifs characteristic of most prokaryotic and eukaryotic DnaJ family members. In response to a 7°C temperature increase, expression of the transcripts encoding hsp70 and ...
To examine if cadherin function is essential for the activity-induced spine enlargement, we took advantage of the W2A mutant of N-cadherin (W2A-cadherin), a point mutant that lacks adhesive activity (Tamura et al., 1998). The overexpression of W2A-cadherin suppressed the adhesive function of N-cadherin as examined by cell aggregation assays (Fig. 7 A). The number of dendritic protrusions on the neurons overexpressing W2A-cadherin was equal to the spine number on the control neurons (Table II). 16% of these spines on the W2A-transfected neurons remained in normal cotyloid shape (Fig. 7 C-1; Table I). 32% of spines appeared largely normal with their heads still identifiable as the bulging end, but their apexes were flat without cotyloid curve (Fig. 7 C-2; Table I). This type of spine was occasionally accompanied by transient protrusions on its apex (see Fig. 8 D). 13% showed normally bulged spine head, but with elongated neck (Fig. 7 C-3; Table I). The other 39% showed filopodia-like elongated ...
Many types of mammalian cells can aggregate and differentiate into 3-D multicellular spheroids when cultured in suspension or a nonadhesive environment. Compared to conventional monolayer cultures, multicellular spheroids resemble real tissues better in terms of structural and functional properties. Multicellular spheroids formed by transformed cells are widely used as avascular tumor models for metastasis and invasion research and for therapeutic screening. Many primary or progenitor cells on the other hand, show significantly enhanced viability and functional performance when grown as spheroids. Multicellular spheroids in this aspect are ideal building units for tissue reconstruction. Here we review the current understanding of multicellular spheroid formation mechanisms, their biomedical applications, and recent advances in spheroid culture, manipulation, and analysis techniques. ...

In this paper we report a novel effect of soluble Fbg that contributes to the sequential activation of circulating neutrophils. Although β2 integrins on myeloid cells were initially identified as cell surface structures mediating the traffic and localization of circulating immune cells (37), they are also able to regulate multiple cellular responses to environmental stimuli, leading to growth, differentiation, gene expression, and apoptosis (38). We now demonstrate that soluble hFbg is capable of triggering neutrophil activation through a CD11b-dependent mechanism. It is well known that several products of coagulation and fibrinolysis profoundly affect many facets of inflammatory reactions, such as induction of platelet activation (39), cytokine production by mononuclear phagocytes (40, 41, 42), neutrophil aggregation, and chemotaxis (43, 44, 45). However, the effects of soluble hFbg on inflammatory cells have only recently been investigated. In this regard, Sitrin et al. (9) recently reported ...

In 1975, Orci et al. (1) reported that human islet cells contain specialized membrane domains that are compatible with the ultrastructural features of two types of intercellular junctions: tight junctions and gap junctions. Since then, numerous reports have demonstrated critical functions for these cell-cell junctional complexes in islet cells (2-8). Eventually, a number of proteins were identified that regulated cell aggregation, islet cell-type segregation, architectural organization within islets of Langerhans, and state of differentiation, cell growth, and hormone secretion (9-16). Hints that direct islet cell-to-islet cell interactions are required for proper insulin secretion were uncovered in the 1980s when it was observed that single (isolated) β-cells are unresponsive to glucose unless they are given the opportunity to reaggregate into small clusters (17). Even more interesting, it was observed that islet cell types harbor specific cell-to-cell recognition signatures that drive their ...
We have recently demonstrated that the CD40 molecule was expressed on both normal human plasma cells and most malignant plasma cells, i.e., myeloma cells. Thus, we have investigated its putative role in the proliferation of myeloma cells. We report that 7 of 15 myeloma cell lines were CD40+ but only one, XG2, presented a high level of CD40 expression. We show that the CD40 stimulation by anti-CD40 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) of the interleukin 6-dependent myeloma cell line XG2 induced a total inhibition of its proliferation. This inhibition was also observed when cells were either cultured in the CD40 system, where the anti-CD40 mAb has been immobilized on fibroblasts expressing Fc receptors or in the presence of a soluble chimeric CD40 ligand molecule. This inhibition of proliferation was neither accompanied by differentiation nor apoptosis. Triggering CD40 induced an homotypic aggregation of XG2 cells, and the inhibition of proliferation was totally prevented by a blocking anti-CD18 mAb. ...

Downloadable! In this paper we analyze judgement aggregation problems in which a group of agents independently votes on a set of complex propositions that has some interdependency constraint between them (e.g., transitivity when describing preferences). We consider the issue of judgement aggregation from the perspective of approximation. That is, we generalize the previous results by studying approximate judgement aggregation. We relax the main two constraints assumed in the current literature, Consistency and Independence and consider mechanisms that only approximately satisfy these constraints, that is, satisfy them up to a small portion of the inputs. The main question we raise is whether the relaxation of these notions significantly alters the class of satisfying aggregation mechanisms. The recent works for preference aggregation of Kalai, Mossel, and Keller fit into this framework. The main result of this paper is that, as in the case of preference aggregation, in the case of a subclass of a
Using Rezais cells, Norriss technology and Seagles leg work, the team was able to capture convincing and dramatic evidence that melanin protects the retinal cells. In the PNAS paper (21 June 2005), they show that increased melanin aggregation and radical migration within melanin aggregates can protect RPE cells from free-radical damage and help prevent cell death. In the JACS paper (17 August 2005, but available online) they demonstrate how melanin actually scavenges the harmful free radicals produced by high-energy blue or ultraviolet light as it flows into the eye, soaking them up and neutralizing their effects ...
Amphiphilic molecules have a hydrophilic head and a hydrophobic chain. Under certain conditions, they can self-organize into hollow spherical hollow vesicles with a surfactant bilayer enclosing an aqueous core, the overall diameter ranging from a few tens of nanometers to several microns. By carefully choosing specific preparation conditions, the scientists of SIS2M have shown that extremely robust aggregates can be synthesized with an interesting potential for encapsulation. The vesicles are widely studied for many fundamental issues (mechanism of self-assembly, physical properties of the membrane, etc ...) which understanding may open new perspectives (controlled release of active molecules, chemical nanoreactors, energy conversion, etc...). Usually, these vesicles (in this case also known as

Organizations which change service provider but do not renumber. This has the effect of punching a hole in the aggregation of the original service providers advertisement. This plan will handle the situation by requiring the newer service provider to advertise a specific advertisement for the new client, which is preferred by virtue of being the longest match. To maintain efficiency of aggregation, it is recommended that organizations which do change service providers plan to eventually migrate their address assignments from the old providers space to that of the new provider. To this end, it is recommended that mechanisms to facilitate such migration, including improved protocols and procedures for dynamic host address assignment, be developed. Note that some aggregation efficiency gain can still be had for multi-homed sites (and, in general, for any site composed of multiple, logical IP network numbers) - by allocating a contiguous power-of-two block of network numbers to the client (as ...

Relative GDP shares are frequently used as weights in aggregations. In order to ensure that these weights reflect countries shares in real output, GDP data in national currencies should be converted into a common numeraire currency at purchasing power parity (PPP) rates. A review of the empirical evidence on the relationship between exchange rates and prices suggests that market (or official) exchange rates are generally poor proxies for PPP rates. The paper examines the PPP-based GDP data generated by the International Comparison Program and compares aggregations with PPP- and exchange rate-based GDP weights.

We begin this discussion with an analysis of the hierarchical framework discussed in Hax and Meal, 1975. After defining the different levels of the hierarchy we provide necessary and detailed models. Several interpretations and consequences of these results are discussed. In addition, it is shown that planning horizons to insure consistency on a detailed level are intimately related to planning on an aggregate level. Although we cannot demonstrate the optimality of the approach of Hax and Meal, lower bounds are easily derived. For the remainder of the report, we do not consider the aggregate product structure of Hax and Meal. Instead, in a linear model, we aggregate all items together. Under a quite general cost structure, we are able to characterize optimal aggregate production which can be optimally disaggregated. The analysis is extended from the single to the multi-echelon case. We formalize some of the preceding notions and present a more general underlying theory. The aggregate
