A time course study was conducted on nucleologenesis after release from a mitotic block in the presence and absence of actinomycin D to determine the composition and fate of prenucleolar bodies (PNBs). Prenucleolar bodies, whether naturally occurring or induced by actinomycin D treatment, stain with silver and contain phosphoproteins B23 and C23, two of the(More)
Most human tumor cells, including glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) cells, have aberrant control of cell aging and apoptosis. Subcytotoxic concentrations of oxidative or stress‑causing agents, such as hydrogen peroxide, may induce human cell senescence. Thus, induction of tumor cells into premature senescence may provide a useful in vitro model for developing(More)
Human HEK293 cells that stably express the Epstein Barr nuclear antigen 1 (EBNA1) support the episomal replication of plasmids containing the Epstein Barr virus origin of replication (EBV oriP). A 293EBNA (293E) cell line expressing the human corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor subtype I (CRHR1) from an episomal plasmid was generated (293CR1s),(More)
Levels of expression of two reporter genes cloned into SV40 or Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) ori-containing plasmids were measured following transient transfection of cell lines constitutively expressing T-antigen or EBV nuclear antigen 1 (EBNA1). The TSA201 and COS7 cell lines stably produce T-antigen and support replication of the SV40 ori-containing(More)
The APC gene was identified in 1991 at chromosome 5 q 21, which is responsible for the familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). The gene has been classified as one of the tumor suppressor genes. The APC gene mutations were suggested to initiate sporadic as well as inherited colorectal neoplasia and to be related to mental retardation. The different forms of(More)
