The Oncotype DX Recurrence Score (RS) is often used in lymph node-negative, estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer to refine prognosis and direct therapy. Its utility is limited by its cost, proprietary nature, and turnaround time. Markers of proliferation factor heavily into determination of RS. Our aim is to correlate expression of proliferation markers(More)
1. Liver nuclei isolated from male mice treated with the carcinogen N, N-diethylnitrosamine were examined for the homopolymer poly(adenosine diphosphate ribose) and for the activity of the conjugate polymerase. 2. At all levels of the carcinogen tested, a concomitant increase in both poly(adenosine diphosphate ribose) content and activity of the enzyme were(More)
Structural analogues of adenosylhomocysteine (AdoHcy) have been tested as inhibitors of a tRNA(uracil-5-)-methyltransferase preparation obtained from Escherichia coli. All analogues tested gave linear competitive inhibition kinetics with adenosylmethionine (AdoMet) as the variable substrate. Comparison of the Ki values obtained leads to the following(More)
