Methods are described for odor-stimulated labeling of olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) of the freshwater zebrafish Danio rerio and the marine spiny lobster Panulirus argus. Permeation of a cationic molecule, 1-amino-4-guanidobutane ( = agmatine, AGB), through ion channels following odor stimulation, and its detection by an anti-AGB antibody, allow labeling(More)
Programmers learning how to use an API or a programming language often rely on code examples to support their learning activities. However, what makes for an effective ode example remains an open question. Finding the haracteristics of the effective examples is essential in improving the appropriateness of these learning aids. To help answer this question(More)
The prosurvival protein BCL-2 is frequently overexpressed in estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer. We have generated ER-positive primary breast tumor xenografts that recapitulate the primary tumors and demonstrate that the BH3 mimetic ABT-737 markedly improves tumor response to the antiestrogen tamoxifen. Despite abundant BCL-XL expression, similar(More)
CSF-1 regulates macrophage differentiation, survival, and function, and is an attractive therapeutic target for chronic inflammation and malignant diseases. Here we describe the effects of a potent and selective inhibitor of CSF-1R-CYC10268-on CSF-1R-dependent signaling. In in vitro kinase assays, CYC10268 was active in the low nanomolar range and showed(More)
BACKGROUND The extracellular calcium-sensing receptor (CaR) is expressed in many tissues that are not associated with Ca(2+) homeostasis, including the endocrine cells in pancreatic islets of Langerhans. We have demonstrated previously that pharmacological activation of the CaR stimulates insulin secretion from islet beta-cells and insulin-secreting MIN6(More)
Human embryonic stem (hES) cells are pluripotent cells isolated from early human embryos. They can be grown in vitro and made to differentiate into many different cell types. These properties have suggested that they may be useful in cell replacement therapy for many degenerative diseases. However, if hES cells could also be manufactured with mutations(More)
The generation of human embryonic stem (hES) cells has captured the public and professional imagination, largely due their potential as a means of overcoming many debilitating and degenerative diseases by cell replacement therapy. Despite this potential, few well-characterized hES cell lines have been derived. Indeed, in the UK, despite several centres(More)
Multi-display environments (MDEs) have advanced rapidly in recent years, incorporating multi-touch tabletops, tablets, wall displays and even position tracking systems. Designers have proposed a variety of interesting gestures for use in an MDE, some of which involve a user moving their hands, arms, body or even a device itself. These gestures are often(More)
Osteosarcoma (OS) survival rates have plateaued in part due to a lack of new therapeutic options. Here we demonstrate that bromodomain inhibitors (BETi), JQ1, I-BET151, I-BET762, exert potent anti-tumour activity against primary and established OS cell lines, mediated by inhibition of BRD4. Strikingly, unlike previous observations in long-term established(More)
