  • Purified human epidermal growth factor (hEGF) from urine promotes anchorage-independent cell growth in soft agar medium. This growth is enhanced by transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta), and is specifically inhibited by hEGF antiserum. Transforming growth factors of the alpha type (TGF-alpha), potentially present in normal human urine or urine from tumor-bearing patients, also promote anchorage-independent cell growth and compete with EGF for membrane receptor binding. Consequently, TGF-alpha cannot be distinguished from urinary hEGF by these two functional assays. Therefore, a technique for separation of TGF-alpha and related peptides from urinary EGF based on biochemical characteristics would be useful. Radioiodination of characterizedmore » growth factors (mouse EGF (mEGF), hEGF, and rat TGF-alpha (rTGF-alpha)), which were then separately added to human urine, was used to evaluate a resolution scheme that separates TGF-alpha from the high level of background hEGF present in human urine. Methyl bonded microparticulate silica efficiently adsorbed the /sup 125/I-labeled mEGF, /sup 125/I-labeled hEGF, and /sup 125/I-labeled rTGF-alpha that were added to 24-h human urine samples. Fractional elution with acetonitrile (MeCN) of the adsorbed silica released approximately 70 to 80% of the /sup 125/I-labeled mEGF and /sup 125/I-labeled hEGF between 25 and 30% MeCN, and over 80% of the /sup 125/I-labeled rTGF-alpha between 15 and 25% MeCN, with retention after dialysis of less than 0.2 and 1.7% of the original urinary protein, respectively. A single-step enrichment of about 400-fold for mEGF and hEGF, and 50-fold for rTGF-alpha were achieved rapidly. /sup 125/I-labeled mEGF and /sup 125/I-labeled hEGF eluted later than would be predicted on the basis of their reported molecular weight of approximately 6000, whereas /sup 125/I-labeled rTGF-alpha eluted from Bio-Gel P-10 at an approximate molecular weight of 8000 to 9000.« less
  • The hst gene was originally identified as a transforming gene in DNAs from human stomach cancers and from a noncancerous portion of stomach mucosa by DNA-mediated transfection assay using NIH3T3 cells. cDNA clones of hst were isolated from the cDNA library constructed from poly(A)/sup +/ RNA of a secondary transformant induced by the DNA from a stomach cancer. The sequence analysis of the hst cDNA revealed the presence of two open reading frames. When this cDNA was inserted into an expression vector containing the simian virus 40 promoter, it efficiently induced the transformation of NIH3T3 cells upon transfection. It wasmore » found that one of the reading frames, which coded for 206 amino acids, was responsible for the transforming activity.« less
  • Weber's transformation is used to show how Lin's constraint should be replaced if fluid equations are derived from Hamilton's principle. The same technique is used to derive a three-circulation theorem and a generalization of Ertel's theorem for perfect multifluid plasmas. The Hamiltonian and Lagrangian formulation of the equations for fluid and electromagnetic potentials is given, with a discussion of their multivaluedness and their gauge and time dependence for static magnetohydrodynamic equilibria. The linear stability of these equilibria is shown to depend on the weight of a single negative eigenvalue of the internal energy variation, compared with all other (positive) contributionsmore » to the energy'' functional.« less
