MNCs have been found, in multiple laboratories, to reduce neurologic deficits in animal models of stroke.6,8,17 An IA delivery of MNCs through the carotid artery confers more benefit in rats compared with an intravenous approach.6 While clinical studies outside the United States in patients with stroke have already commenced delivering MNCs into the cerebral arterial circulation,11 it is important to assess whether MNCs can be damaged with the devices commonly used in the endovascular suite. A recent study assessed the effects of catheter passage of mesenchymal stem cells to the heart and found that higher flow rates did impair gene expression of certain growth factors, which are believed to underlie, in part, the effects of these cells in promoting cardiac repair.18 Criteria have already been recommended by the FDA to determine the safety of endovascular delivery of stem cells in cardiac patients.7. We, therefore, performed ex vivo experiments to simulate a planned study involving an ...

AU - Huang, Tai-huang. PY - 2004/11/5. Y1 - 2004/11/5. N2 - Hepatoma-derived growth factor (HDGF)-related proteins (HRPs) comprise a new protein family that has been implicated in nephrogenesis, tumorigenesis, vascular development, cell proliferation, and transcriptional activation. All HRPs share a conserved N-terminal homologous to the amino terminus of HDGF (HATH) domain, but vary significantly in the C-terminal region. Here, we show that in solution the N and C termini of human HDGF form two structurally independent domains. The 100 amino acid residue N-terminal HATH domain is well-structured while the 140 amino acid residue C-terminal domain is disordered. We determined the solution structure of the HATH domain by NMR. The core structure of the HATH domain is a five-stranded β-barrel followed by two α-helices, ...
Hepatoma-derived growth factor (HDGF) belongs to a polypeptide family containing five additional members called HDGF related proteins 1-4 (HRP-1 to -4) and Lens epithelial derived growth factor. Whereas some family members such as HDGF and HRP-2 are expressed in a wide range of tissues, the expression of others is very restricted. HRP-1 and -4 are only expressed in testis, HRP-3 only in the nervous system. Here we investigated the expression of HDGF, HRP-2 and HRP-3 in the central nervous system of adult mice on the cellular level by immunohistochemistry. In addition we performed Western blot analysis of various brain regions as well as neuronal and glial cell cultures. HDGF was rather evenly expressed throughout all brain regions tested with the lowest expression in the substantia nigra. HRP-2 was strongly expressed in the thalamus, prefrontal and parietal cortex, neurohypophysis, and the cerebellum, HRP-3 in the bulbus olfactorius, piriform cortex and amygdala complex. HDGF and HRP-2 were found to be

Hepatoma-derived growth factor (HDGF) is a growth factor related to normal development and tumorigenesis; however, the mechanism of its mitogenic and angiogenic activity still remains unknown. Analysis of the HDGF interactome could be important for understanding its function and integrative mechanisms, because knowledge about HDGF interactors is very limited. In this study, through streptavidin-binding peptide (SBP) and Flag tag-based tandem affinity purification (SBP/Flag-TAP) coupled with LC-MS/MS, 106 proteins were shown to form complexes with HDGF. RNAs were also found in the HDGF complex through the SBP-tag based RNA co-immunoprecipitation (SBP-RIP) assay. Some of these interactions were confirmed by Co-IP and RT-PCR. We then found that the HATH domain was essential for HDGF interactions including protein-protein and protein-RNA interactions, and that in the absence of the HATH domain, NO-HATH could not form complex. The interactome suggests that HDGF is a multifunctional protein and participates
The Workshop on Growth Factors which took place at the Lugano Lymphoma Conference on June 8, 1990, included a presentation by Michael Sporn on the concept that loss of inhibitory control mechanisms may be important in the development and growth of human cancer. Examples illustrating this were taken from current experimental biology research into transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) interactions. Brian Durie presented recent data on the biology of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and its putative role in plasma cell diseases. These studies have culminated in the first clinical study of the role of an antibody to a growth factor as therapy for a human cancer (anti-IL-6 antibody as therapy for patients with myeloma). Derek Crowther presented data concerning the current clinical role of the haematopoietic growth factors in patients undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. Recent clinical research has established the role of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and granulocyte-macrophage ...

During oncogenesis, gene mutations or expression changes accumulate in pathways regulating specific aspects of cell proliferation. Biological pathways that, when dysregulated, allow cells to grow and divide unchecked include apoptosis (programmed cell death), cell cycle, DNA damage repair, and growth factor responses. Angiogenesis allows further tumor growth via vascularization and oxygenation. In addition, pathways such as cell adhesion and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition permit tumors to invade surrounding tissue. Many genes mediate and control each of these pathways, and changes in the sequence, expression, or epigenetics of any of those genes can dysregulate its pathway. The combination of mutated genes in any given cancer or tumor can be distinctive. Understanding molecular mechanisms behind specific cancers and developing diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers requires analyses of any one of these pathways in isolation or together with other pathways ...

What are blood growth factors? Growth factors are chemicals that encourage cells to divide and develop. These are sometimes called haematopoietic (blood-forming) drugs. There are lots of different growth factors that affect different types of cells. Your body makes growth factors naturally but growth factors can also be made in the laboratory. These can be used to stimulate the production of new cells in people who need them.
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Is inequality harmful for growth? The authors suggest that it is. In a society where distributional conflict is important, political decisions produce economic policies that tax investment and growth-promoting activities in order to redistribute income. The paper formulates a theoretical model that captures this idea. The models implications are supported by the evidence. Both historical panel data and postwar cross-sections indicate a significant and large negative relation between inequality and growth. This relation is only present in democracies.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Stimulation of PC cell-derived growth factor (Epithelin/Granulin precursor) expression by estradiol in human breast cancer cells. AU - Lu, Runqing. AU - Serrero, Ginette. PY - 1999/3/5. Y1 - 1999/3/5. N2 - PC cell-derived growth factor (PCDGF) is an 88 kDa glycosylated protein isolated from a highly tumorigenic mouse teratoma derived cell line which is similar to the epithelin/granulin precursor. Using Northern blot and western blot analyses, we detect the expression of PCDGF mRNA and protein in MCF-7 human breast cancer cells. We show that 17-β-estradiol stimulates PCDGF mRNA and protein expression in a time and dose-dependent manner. The stimulation of PCDGF expression by 17-β-estradiol was observed as early as 4 hours and reached a maximum at 12 hours. Maximal stimulation of PCDGF mRNA and protein expression by 17-β-estradiol was observed at a concentration of 10-8 M. The stimulation of PCDGF expression by 17-β-estradiol was completely inhibited by treatment with ...

The role of transforming growth factors type beta (TGF-beta) was investigated during murine embryogenesis. There are three known mammalian TGF-beta genes. The developmental pattern of expression of TGF-beta RNA has previously been elucidated by in situ hybridisation and the localisation of TGF-beta1 protein by immunohistochemistry. Based on this data it has been suggested that TGF-beta1 acts in both a paracrine and autocrine role during development. The expression of both TGF-beta2 and TGF-beta3 RNA has been observed in murine embryos by Northern analysis. In order to understand the role of these two genes, individually, and in relation with each other, the developmental regulation of all three genes was investigated by in situ hybridisation using mouse specific probes on serial mouse embryo sections from 6.5 days p.c. to 16.5 days p.c.. A comparison was made of the data concerning the temporal and spatial expression patterns of TGF-beta1, TGF-beta2 and TGF-beta3 RNA, and the role of each gene ...
Background: HIV-1 matrix protein p17 variants (vp17s) detected in HIV-1-infected patients with non-Hodgkins lymphoma (HIV-NHL) display, differently from the wild-type protein (refp17), B cell growth-promoting activity. Biophysical analysis revealed that vp17s are destabilized as compared to refp17, motivating us to explore structure-function relationships. Methods: We used: biophysical techniques (circular dichroism (CD), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and thermal/GuHCL denaturation) to study protein conformation and stability; Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) to study interactions; Western blot to investigate signaling pathways; and Colony Formation and Soft Agar assays to study B cell proliferation and clonogenicity. Results: By forcing the formation of a disulfide bridge between Cys residues at positions 57 and 87 we obtained a destabilized p17 capable of promoting B cell proliferation. This finding prompted us to dissect refp17 to identify the functional epitope. A synthetic peptide (F1) ...
Background: Whereas the prognosis of second kidney transplant recipients (STR) compared to the first ones has been frequently analyzed, no study has addressed the issue of comparing the risk factor effects on graft failure between both groups. Methods: Here, we propose two alternative strategies to study the heterogeneity of risk factors between two groups of patients: (i) a multiplicative-regression model for relative survival (MRS) and (ii) a stratified Cox model (SCM) specifying the graft rank as strata and assuming subvectors of the explicatives variables. These developments were motivated by the analysis of factors associated with time to graft failure (return-to-dialysis or patient death) in second kidney transplant recipients (STR) compared to the first ones. Estimation of the parameters was based on partial likelihood maximization. Monte-Carlo simulations associated with bootstrap re-sampling was performed to calculate the standard deviations for the MRS. Results: We demonstrate, for the first

In amphibians, certain growth factor antagonists are secreted by the most dorsal cells (i.e., Chordin, Noggin, Follistatin, Frzb). Mesoderm cells at different dorsal-ventral positions are committed to become different types of mesoderm based on their exposure to different levels of the dorsal-promoting Chordin, Noggin, Follistatin and Frzb proteins, which function by antagonizing the ventral-promoting growth factors BMPs and Wnts.. The most dorsal tissue (axial mesoderm, or notochord) forms from cells exposed to the highest levels of Chordin, Noggin, Follistatin and Frzb (and thus lowest effective levels of BMPs and Wnts) while the most ventral tissue (heart, which develops from lateral mesoderm) forms from mesoderm cells exposed to the lowest levels of Chordin, Noggin and Follistatin and hence the highest effective levels of BMPs and Wnts.. ...
ILK has a low basal kinase activity, which is stimulated transiently by cell-ECM interactions and by certain growth factors (Dedhar, 2000). The activity is stimulated in a phosphatidylinositol (PI) 3-kinase-dependent manner and likely involves binding of the phosphoinositide phospholipid product of PI 3-kinase, PI 3,4,5-triphosphate, to the PH-like domain of ILK (Dedhar, 2000). ILK activity is regulated negatively by two phosphatases: PTEN, a tumor suppressor lipid phosphatase, which dephosphorylates PI 3,4,5-triphosphate to PI 4,5-bisphosphate, and a PP2C protein phosphatase, ILKAP (Morimoto et al., 2000; Persad et al., 2000; 2001b; Leung-Hagesteijn et al., 2001). ILK activity is activated constitutively in PTEN-null tumor cells (Persad et al., 2000, 2001b). Both PI 3,4,5-triphosphate binding and (auto)phosphorylation appear to be crucial for ILK activation, since mutations in the PH domain (Arg 211) or in the activation loop serine (ser) 343 render the kinase inactive and unable to ...
Cells interpret their local environment by encoding extracellular cues into intracellular signaling responses. Peptide growth factors are one class of extracellular molecules that stimulate signaling pathways to control cell growth, proliferation or metabolism (Cross and Dexter, 1991). Each of these peptides typically binds to and activates a distinct subset of transmembrane receptors, thereby regulating a variety of intracellular signaling cascades (Lemmon and Schlessinger, 2010). The biochemical steps downstream of each receptor are shared among several classes of growth factors and have been relatively well defined (Lemmon and Schlessinger, 2010; Manning and Cantley, 2007). Yet, different growth factors induce distinctive behavioral responses in cells (Downward, 2001; Marshall, 1995), suggesting that variability in signaling dynamics or other related processes might be key determinants in producing unique biological outcomes.. Previous analyses of signaling dynamics downstream of growth ...

1. It is shown that when plant tissues are ground with water the growth substance contained therein is inactivated by the oxidizing enzymes.. 2. A simple method of extraction is described which enables the quantitative determination of growth substance in such tissues.. 3. The amount and distribution of growth substance in the Avena coleoptile is determined by this method, and it is shown that while the substance does not diffuse out from the lower parts of the coleoptile, it is nevertheless present in considerable amounts, the concentration decreasing steadily with the distance from the tip.. 4. Growth substance is also present in considerable amounts in Avena roots, and here also its concentration decreases steadily with distance from the tip.. 5. The amount of growth substance diffusing out of root tips into dextrose agar, even during long periods of time, is not greater than the amount obtainable by direct extraction. Actual production in the root tip therefore either does not take place at ...

Matuzumab binds to epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) on the outer membrane of normal and tumor cells. The matuzumab epitope has been mapped to domain III of the extracellular domain of the EGFR.[7][8] The EGFR is receptor tyrosine kinase which binds multiple growth factors including EGF (epidermal growth factor) and other members of the EGF family of growth factors, resulting in activation of its tyrosine kinase activity. Activation of the EGFR has diverse effects on target cells depending on cell type and tissue context. It directs cell fate decision relating to cell growth, survival and, differentiation. Development of matuzumab and other antibodies to the EGFR (for example cetuximab) as cancer therapeutics was motivated by observations that EGFR expression and/or signaling is frequently upregulated in cancer cells. ...
Our laboratory is focusing on a family of proteins called phospholipid scramblases. We originally cloned phospholipid scramblase 1 (PLSCR1), a Ca2+-binding, endofacial plasma membrane protein, based on its capacity to promote rapid transbilayer movement of phospholipids in response to elevated Ca2+. Such redistribution of phospholipids is normally observed upon platelet activation, and in injured or apoptotic cells. We subsequently identified three additional members of this gene family. Recent data from our laboratory suggest a considerably more complex biology for these proteins than their putative role in mediating transbilayer lipid movement. PLSCR1 -- and possibly other members of the PLSCR gene family -- plays a role in modulating the signal transduction through multiple growth factor receptors, and is itself transcriptionally upregulated through these same growth factor receptor pathways. We also discovered that when transcriptionally induced, a portion of the newly synthesized PLSCR1 ...
Purpose : To optimize the growth condition of porcine corneal endothelial cells (PCEC), we evaluated the effect of coculturing with a feeder layer (irradiated 3T3 fibroblasts) with the addition of various exogenous factors, such as epidermal growth factor (EGF), nerve growth factor (NGF), bovine pituitary extract (BPE), ascorbic acid, and chondroitin sulfate, on cell proliferation, size, and morphology. Methods : PCEC cultures were seeded at an initial cell density of 400 cells/cm2 in the presence or absence of 20,000 murine-irradiated 3T3 fibroblast/cm2 in the classic media Dulbeccos Modified Eagles Medium (DMEM) supplemented with 20% fetal bovine serum (FBS). Mean cell size and bromodeoxyuridine incorporation was assessed at various passages. Growth-promoting factors were studies by seeding PCEC at 8,000 cells/cm2 in DMEM with 20% FBS or Opti-MEM I supplemented with 4% FBS and one of the following additives: EGF (0.5, 5, 25 ng/ml), NGF (5, 20, 50 ng/ml), BPE (25, 50, 100, 200 μg/ml), ...
Keywords: heparanase ELISA antibody Launch Heparanase can be an endoglycosidase that particularly cleaves heparan sulfate (HS) aspect chains of heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPG) [1-3]. HSPG contain a protein primary to which HS aspect chains are covalently attached. These complicated macromolecules are extremely loaded in the extracellular matrix (ECM) and so are thought to enjoy a significant structural role adding to ECM integrity and insolubility [4]. Furthermore HS aspect chains can bind to a number of biological mediators such as for example growth elements cytokines and chemokines hence providing a easily available tank of active molecules that can be liberated upon local or systemic cues [5]. Moreover HSPG around the cell surface participates directly in transmission transduction cascades by potentiating the conversation between certain growth factors and their receptors [6-8]. HS-degrading CC 10004 activity is usually thus expected to impact several CC 10004 fundamental aspects of ...
Normal tissue growth involves a complex interaction of cell proliferation, hypertrophy, migration, differentiation and senescence which proceeds within strict temporal and anatomical constraints. While classical endocrine hormones such as growth hormone and thyroxine can influence the overall rate of growth and maturation they do not contribute to the fundamental intercellular signalling within tissues that underlies these processes. This appears to be the primary role of peptide growth factors. During the rapid development of the embryo and fetus peptide growth factors are associated with tissue induction, the clonal growth of stem-cell populations, and the appearance of differentiated function in the presumptive organs. In post-natal life the actions of growth factors are less obvious although notable exceptions demonstrate that the same biological pathways exist; the best studied examples are the role of somatomedins during longitudinal skeletal growth and the coordinated actions of several growth

We revise multiple linear regression models, and see how they are special cases of a General Linear Model. We move on to consider Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) as another special case of a general linear model - this is the problem of investigating contrasts between different levels of a factor in affecting a response and then we generalize to the case of several factors. We consider Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) which involves mixing linear regression and factor effects, and the idea of interaction between explanatory variables in the way they affect a response. The module provides a comprehensive introduction to the issues involved in using statistics to model real data, and to draw relevant conclusions. There is an emphasis on hands-on application of the theory and methods throughout, with extensive use of R.. ...
