Coexpression of constitutively active GSK-3beta[S9A] rescued the axonal pathology induced by overexpression of human tau in transgenic mice (Spittaels et al., (2000) J. Biol. Chem. 275, 41340-41349). We isolated dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neuronal cultures from adult tau4R- and tau4R x GSK-3beta-transgenic mice to define the mechanisms at the cellular and(More)
The relationship of abnormal nuclear morphology to molecular genetic alterations that are important in colorectal tumorigenesis is unknown. Therefore, Feulgen-stained isolated nuclei from 22 adenomas and 42 carcinomas that had been analyzed for ras gene mutations and allelic deletions on chromosomes 5q, 18q, and 17p were characterized by computerized image(More)
Altered total nuclear DNA content is frequent in colorectal carcinomas, but the mechanisms producing aneuploidy are unknown. Therefore, DNA ploidy by flow cytometry was correlated with molecular genetic alterations and tumor characteristics in 50 colorectal carcinomas. The prognostic value of these alterations was also evaluated because aneuploidy has been(More)
WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE The concomitant use of multiple drugs is common among the general population of elderly. The aim of this study was to provide an overview of which drugs are dispensed to elderly in the year before colon cancer diagnosis and to compare this with cancer-free controls. METHODS Data from the Eindhoven Cancer Registry were linked to(More)
PURPOSE A combined treatment of cells with 5-bromo-2'-deoxyurine (BrdU), Hoechst 33 258 and ultraviolet A (UVA) light was used to introduce chromosomal aberrations in cells for the study of bystander effects in non-labelled cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS Mixtures of BrdU-labelled and non-labelled Chinese hamster cells (V79) in S phase were exposed to(More)
