Autoantigen glycoprotein 70 expression is regulated by a single locus, which acts as a checkpoint for pathogenic anti-glycoprotein 70 autoantibody production and hence for the corresponding development of severe nephritis, in lupus-prone PXSB mice.

M E Haywood, T J Vyse, A McDermott, E M Thompson, A Ida, M J Walport, S Izui, B J Morley,

Retroviral envelope glycoprotein gp70 is present in the sera of immunologically normal and autoimmune-prone strains of mice. However, only lupus-prone mice spontaneously develop gp70-anti-gp70 immune complexes (gp70IC), and these have been implicated in the development of nephritis. We investigated the genetic factors that affect the production of both free serum ... Read more >>

Hematopoietic growth factor after autologous peripheral blood transplantation: comparison of G-CSF and GM-CSF.

J Jansen, E M Thompson, S Hanks, A R Greenspan, J M Thompson, M J Dugan, L P Akard,

Autologous peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transplantation results in rapid hematologic recovery when sufficient numbers of CD34+ cells/kg are infused. Recent studies suggest that filgrastim (G-CSF) administration following transplantation leads to more rapid neutrophil recovery and lower total transplant costs. This study compares the use of G-CSF (5 microg/kg/day) with ... Read more >>

Preferential nuclear location of a transgene does not depend on its transcriptional activity during early mouse development.

E M Thompson, J P Renard,

Changes in chromatin structure play an important role in regulation of the HSP70.1 gene during mouse preimplantation development. Using in situ PCR we have now examined whether the spatial organization of an HSP70.1 luciferase transgene within the nucleus is also a factor in regulating its expression. The transgene showed a ...

High mobility group 1 (HMG1) protein in mouse preimplantation embryos.

F Spada, A Brunet, Y Mercier, J P Renard, M E Bianchi, E M Thompson,

High mobility group 1 protein (HMG1) has traditionally been considered a structural component of chromatin, possibly similar in function to histone H1. In fact, at the onset of Xenopus and Drosophila development, HMG1 appears to substitute for histone H1: HMG1 is abundant when histone H1 is absent after the midblastula ... Read more >>
