- Going places. Bussell, Katrin // Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology;Dec2003, Vol. 4 Issue 12, p905
The article focuses on research on netrins; scientists previously believed that netrins were used in neural tissues as guidance cues. Vincenzo Cirulli and Marc Tessier-Lavigne have demonstrated, in an article that appeared in "Developmental Cell," that netrin-1 helps to mediate adhesion and...
- Repetitive Acute Pancreatic Injury in the Mouse Induces Procollagen a1(I) Expression Colocalized to Pancreatic Stellate Cells. Neuschwander-Tetri, Brent A.; Bridle, Kim R.; Wells, Lisa D.; Marcu, Mann; Ramm, Grant A. // Laboratory Investigation (00236837);Feb2000, Vol. 80 Issue 2, p143
Pancreatic stellate cells may be a major source of extracellular matrix deposition during injury. This study was undertaken to establish whether pancreatic stellate cells are a source of Type I collagen in vivo and whether they continue to be a sourc
- Foregut mesenchyme contributes cells to pancreatic acini during embryonic development in a chick-quail chimera model. Teague, Warwick; Jayanthi, Naga; Lear, Pamela; Johnson, Paul // Pediatric Surgery International;Mar2005, Vol. 21 Issue 3, p138
To understand causes of developmental abnormalities of the pancreas, it is essential to understand its normal embryonic development. Current understanding of the development of pancreatic exocrine tissue is that it develops solely from embryonic epithelium, while the role of the surrounding...
- Role of ERCP in the Diagnosis of Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms. Pavone, Elio; Mehta, Shailesh N.; Hilzenrat, Nir; Bret, Patrice; Lough, John; Goresky, Carl A.; Barkun, Alan N.; Jabbari, Mansour // American Journal of Gastroenterology;May1997, Vol. 92 Issue 5, p887
Mucinous cystic neoplasms of the pancreas may present in a "ductectatic" form, which parallels a distinct clinical presentation. We describe six patients with this entity termed mucinous ductal ectasia, or intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm. All six patients presented with typical clinical...
- Are we studying the correct state of the stellate cell to elucidate mechanisms of chronic pancreatitis? Pandol, S. J. // Gut;Jun2005, Vol. 54 Issue 6, p744
The article discusses about important insights into the states of pancreatic stellate cells and their relation to the disease conditions of the pancreas. The processes of chronic pancreatitis include chronic inflammation and fibrosis with loss of parenchymal cells of the exocrine and endocrine...
- Expression of Id1 in adult, regenerating and developing pancreas. Hong Hua; Nora Sarvetnick // Endocrine (1355008X);Dec2007, Vol. 32 Issue 3, p280
AbstractÂ Â Several key transcription factors are necessary for alpha cell development in the pancreas. In this study, we describe the expression of Inhibition of DNA-binding protein 1 (Id1) in the developing as well as the normal adult pancreas. We found co-expression of Id1 with bone...
- Occupations with increased risk of pancreatic cancer in the Swedish population. Alguacil, J; Pollan, M; Gustavsson, P // Occupational & Environmental Medicine;Aug2003, Vol. 60 Issue 8, p570
Provides information on a study that identified occupations with increased risk of pancreatic cancer in the Swedish population gainfully employed in 1970 over the period 1971-89. Methodology of the study; Results and discussion on the study; Conclusions.
- Efficacy of Routine Pancreatic Scanning. Sodee, D. Bruce // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Sep1967, Vol. 48 Issue 3, p211
Presents a study which examined the efficacy of routine pancreatic scanning. Description of the Picker Magnascanner model 6184P; Clinical application and results; Limitations of the pancreatic scanning technique.
- Pancreas. // Encyclopedic Reference of Cancer;2001, p676
A definition of the term "pancreas," which refers to an abdominal growth with both endocrine and exocrine function is presented.
