  1. Regulation of adrenocortical cell proliferation in culture.

    Endocrine Research 10(3-4):259 (1984) PMID 6100245

    The regulation of the proliferation of adrenocortical cells in culture is reviewed. The hormones and growth factors affecting adrenocortical proliferation in culture and their physiological relevance are discussed. The following general conclusions are made: (i) ACTH is growth-stimulatory in vivo, b...
  2. Giant cell tumor of bone. The role of fibroblast growth factor 3 positive mesenchymal stem cells in its pathogenesis.

    Pathobiology 70(6):333 (2002) PMID 12865629

    The neoplastic stromal spindle-shaped subpopulation of cells in giant cell tumors are mesenchymal stem cells capable of inducing histiocyte proliferation. Retinoid acid is capable of inducing differentiation of the cells into mature osteoblasts. This should be further investigated in an in vivo mode...
  3. Effect of serum amyloid A, HDL-apolipoprotein, on endothelial cell proliferation. Implication of an enigmatic protein to atherosclerosis.

    Biomedical peptides, proteins & nucleic acids :... 2(3):79 (1996) PMID 9575344

    Our results suggest that human SAA, both purified and recombinant, in concentrations relevant to mild acute phase events, significantly inhibit endothelial cell proliferation in a dose-dependent manner (e.g., 50 micrograms/ml causes approximately 88% inhibition; p < 0.001). This inhibition was atten...
  4. Peptide growth factors and prostate cancer: new models, new opportunities.

    Cancer and Metastasis Reviews 17(4):317 (1998) PMID 10453274

    We have developed and characterized the Transgenic Adenocarcinoma of Mouse Prostate (TRAMP) animal model that expresses the oncogene SV40 T antigen specifically in the epithelium of the prostate. TRAMP develops spontaneous autochthonous prostate cancer compelte with distant site metastasis and can p...
  5. Ontogenetic limb bone scaling in basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2) transgenic mice.

    Growth, Development & Aging 61(3-4):127 (1997) PMID 9546104

    We collected radiographic and weight data longitudinally and obtained the length, proximal, distal, and minimum diaphyseal widths of the humerus, femur, and tibia. Because growth is nonlinear with respect to time, we used the Gompertz mathematical model to obtain parameters describing rate and timin...
