- Detection and quantification of the soluble form of the human erythropoietin receptor (sEpoR) in the growth medium of tumor cell lines and in the plasma of blood samplesG Westphal
Division of Radiobiology and Radiooncology, German Cancer Research Center DKFZ, Heidelberg
Clin Exp Med 2:45-52. 2002..In conclusion, an ELISA to quantify the sEpoR was established and the expression of sEpoR in human tumor cell lines was demonstrated for the first time...
- Erythropoietin and G-CSF receptors in human tumor cells: expression and aspects regarding functionalityGabriela Westphal
Division of Radiobiology in Radiooncology, German Cancer Research Center DKFZ, Heidelberg
Tumori 88:150-9. 2002..We therefore investigated in human tumor cell lines the expression of these receptors in tumor cells as well as their response to Epo and G-CSF...
- Detection of NGF-receptors TrkA and p75NTR in human tumor cell lines and effect of NGF on the growth characteristic of the UT-7/EPO cell lineG Westphal
Division Radiobiology in Radiooncology, German Cancer Research Center, DKFZ, Heidelberg, Germany
J Exp Clin Cancer Res 21:255-67. 2002..TrkA inhibition with K252a--a blocker of Trk-induced receptor kinase--suggests, that the NGF signal may be transduced by the TrkA receptor in UT-7/NGF cells. This indicates that NGF is a decisive mediator of cellular adhesion...
