We extend use of the lacZ reporter gene for tumor biology. Intracerebral growth of 9L/lacZ, a gliosarcoma cell line that stably expresses lacZ, was evaluated in syngeneic rats. The reporter gene product, Escherichia coli-derived beta-galactosidase (beta-gal), was detected histochemically on tissue sections. This permits visualization of disseminated tumor(More)
General practitioners (GPs) have an important role in public health response to CBRN incidents, including disseminating information to worried patients and undertaking risk assessments of patients. The authors undertook the first known UK survey of GPs' CBRN preparedness to assess knowledge and attitudes towards CBRN preparedness among GPs in East London,(More)
Xenotransplantation of tissues between discordant species such as pig into human is not yet feasible due to the problem of hyperacute rejection. This rapid response to xenogeneic tissue is mediated by natural antibodies that react with antigens on the xenograft. A number of xenoantigens consist of carbohydrate residues, and a terminal galactose in alpha(More)
In ENU induced rat glioma model, the location of tumor is unpredictable and serial observation of neoplastic changes in a single lesion is not possible. We induced neoplastic transformation of cultured type-I astrocyte (AS-l) by exposure to ENU and observed the morphological changes of them. Since the importance of p53 alteration is stressed in human glial(More)
The mechanisms underlying rejection of grafted neural tissue are still being defined. Mechanisms relevant to genetically engineered cells are of current interest. To date, attention has focused on major histocompatibility complex (MHC) antigens as targets of graft rejection. Yet even when there is no MHC disparity, as when the patient’s own cells are(More)
