Notch is a crucial cell signaling pathway in metazoan development. By means of cell-cell interactions, Notch signaling regulates cellular identity, proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. Within the last decade, numerous studies have shown an important role for this pathway in the development and homeostasis of mammalian stem cell populations. Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) constitute a well-defined population that shows self-renewal and multi-lineage differentiation potential, with the clinically relevant capacity to repopulate the hematopoietic system of an adult organism. Here, we review the emergence, development and maintenance of HSCs during mammalian embryogenesis and adulthood, with respect to the role of Notch signaling in hematopoietic biology.

    We used clinically relevant murine allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) models to study the mechanisms by which IL-7 administration can improve posttransplant peripheral T cell reconstitution. After transplant we could distinguish two populations of mature donor T cells: (a) alloreactive...

    From a wealth of experimental findings, derived from both in vitro and in vivo experiments, it is becoming clear that fibroblast growth factors regulate processes that are central to all aspects of nervous system development. Some of these functions are well known, whereas others, such as the...

    Somatic activating mutations in Notch1 contribute to the pathogenesis of T cell acute lymphoblastic lymphoma (T-ALL), but how activated Notch1 signaling exerts this oncogenic effect is not completely understood. Here we identify HIV-1 Rev-binding protein (Hrb), a component of the...

    The constitutive expression of angiogenic and tumorigenic chemokines by tumour cells facilitates the growth of tumours. The transcription of these angiogenic and tumorigenic chemokine genes is modulated, in part, by the nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kappa B) family of transcription factors. In some...

    Bone marrow transplantation (BMT) can give rise to donor-derived osteopoiesis in mice and humans; however, the source of this activity, whether a primitive osteoprogenitor or a transplantable marrow cell with dual hematopoietic and osteogenic potential, has eluded detection. To address this...

    Mobilizing bone cells to the head, astutely referred to as 'bonehead' therapeutic approach, represents a major discipline of regenerative medicine. The last decade has witnessed mounting evidence supporting the capacity of bone marrow (BM)-derived cells to mobilize from BM to peripheral blood...

  • Adenosine mediates IL-13-induced inflammation and remodeling in the lung and interacts in an IL-13-adenosine amplification pathway. Blackburn, Michael R.; Lee, Chun G.; Young, Hays W.J.; Zhu, Zhou; Chunn, Janci L.; Kang, Min Jong; Banerjee, Suman K.; Elias, Jack A. // Journal of Clinical Investigation;Aug2003, Vol. 112 Issue 3, p332 

    IL-13 is an important mediator of inflammation and remodeling. We hypothesized that adenosine accumulation, alterations in adenosine receptors, and adenosine-IL-13 autoinduction are critical events in IL-13-induced pathologies. To test this, we characterized the effects of IL-13 overexpression...

    The adipose-derived hormone, leptin, acts via its receptor (LRb) to convey the status of body energy stores to the brain, decreasing feeding and potentiating neuroendocrine energy expenditure. The failure of high levels of leptin in most obese individuals to promote weight loss defines a state...
