Although the majority of mammalian cells in situ are terminally differentiated, most DNA repair studies have used proliferating cells. In an attempt to understand better the relationship between differentiation and DNA repair, we have used the murine 3T3-T proadipocyte cell line. In this model system, proliferating (stem) cells undergo growth arrest (GD(More)
In this study, we investigated potential mechanisms through which the known anti-angiogenic factor, tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-3 (TIMP-3) blocks angiogenesis. As a strategy to identify TIMP-3 binding proteins, we used tandem affinity purification, employing recombinant adenoviruses constructed to deliver TIMP-3 fused to C-terminal S and His tags(More)
Sprouting angiogenesis is a multistep process consisting of basement membrane degradation, endothelial cell (EC) activation, proliferation, invasion, lumen formation, and sprout stabilization. Such complexity is consistent with a requirement for orchestration of individual gene expression alongside multiple signaling pathways. To better understand the(More)
Endothelial cells normally line the vasculature and remain quiescent. However, these cells can be rapidly stimulated to undergo morphogenesis and initiate new blood vessel formation given the proper cues. This study reports a new mechanism for initiating angiogenic sprout formation that involves vimentin, the major intermediate filament protein in(More)
Double-strand break (dsb) induction and repair was determined in the human colon carcinoma cell line clone A using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) coupled with photostimulable storage phosphor imaging technology. Because 14C-radioactivity was measured in a dried agarose gel following electrophoresis, no laborious processing of the gel, cutting out(More)
Aclacinomycin A (ACM), a potent inducer of leukemic cell differentiation, significantly enhances the radiosensitivity of a human colon tumor cell line (Clone A) when cultures are exposed to 15-nM concentrations for 3 days before irradiation. We now demonstrate that incubation with ACM after irradiation can also enhance Clone A cell killing. The maximum(More)
