Competitive binding and monoclonal antibody staining techniques were used to demonstrate high-affinity (Kd = 1.9 nmol/l) receptors for epidermal growth factor (EGF) in 35 of 104 primary human breast tumours and in 10 of 14 secondary lymph-node deposits. There was a significant inverse relation between the presence of EGF receptors and the presence of(More)
Three metastatic variants, BL6 (high metastasis), F1 (nonmalignant) and F10 (intermediate malignancy) of the B16 murine melanoma, and a pulmonary metastatic line BL6-ML8 of the BL6 primary tumour have been examined for spontaneous sister chromatid exchange (SCE). Two human astrocytoma cell lines were also examined. SCE was encountered in 29 and 13% of(More)
This study was aimed at determining whether tumour DNA content measured by cell image analysis could provide additional prognostic information when compared to that provided by flow cytometry. Sections cut from paraffin blocks of tumours from 101 patients with node negative breast cancer were analysed by both methods and the results related to other(More)
The incidence of double minute chromosomes and sister chromatid exchanges has been examined in four variant lines of the B16 murine melanoma, two human melanoma and two astrocytoma cell lines. The incidence of double minutes and sister chromatid exchanges appears to be strongly associated in these cell lines.
Identification and treatment of involved axillary lymph nodes is important in the planning of strategies for adjuvant treatments of breast cancer. With the advent of the National Health Service Screening Programme, an increasing number of women with the disease are detected at an early stage, when the lymph nodes are not involved. In whom, therefore, is it(More)
The membrane fluidity of murine B16 melanoma and L5178 lymphoma variants is examined in relation to their metastatic potential. A higher lateral mobility of membrane proteins in metastasis is indicated by lectin receptor-mediated agglutination studies, but these do not constitute incontrovertible evidence that higher fluidity might be relevant in the(More)
The S100 family of calcium binding proteins has been shown to be involved in a variety of physiological function, such as cell proliferation, extracellular signal transduction, intercellular adhesion, motility as well as cancer metastasis. The role played by a member of the S100 gene family, viz. S100A4 (also referred to as mtsl, 18A2/mtsl, pEL-98, p9Ka,(More)
The pathways of transduction of oxidative stress signals have been studied using the Jurkat T cell model. The oxidative stress was induced by exposure of the cells to 100 microM H(2)O(2). DNA damage was detected within 15 min after commencement of treatment. DNA damage repair occurred within about 1 h in cells exposed to oxidative stress for 15 min. In(More)
Resveratrol (RES) is a natural occurring phytoalexin that has been shown to have chemopreventive activity. Resveratrol acts both by suppressing cell proliferation and inducing apoptosis in a variety of cancer cell lines. In this study, we show that RES induces apoptosis in MOLT-4 acute lymphoblastic leukaemia cells by modulating three different pathways(More)
