The genomic organization and chromosomal distributions of two abundant tandemly repeated DNA sequences, dpTa1 and pSc119.2, were examined in six wild Hordeum taxa, representing the four basic genomes of the genus, by Southern and fluorescence in situ hybridization. The dpTa1 probe hybridized to between 30 and 60 sites on the chromosomes of all five diploid(More)
We examined the gene expression of human leukemia Molt-4 cells treated with non-thermal low intensity pulsed ultrasound. Six hours after 0.3W/cm(2) pulsed ultrasound treatment, apoptosis (24+/-3.3%, mean+/-SD) with minimal cell lysis was observed. Of approximately 16,600 genes analyzed, BCL2-associated athanogene 3 (BAG3), DnaJ (Hsp40) homolog, subfamily B,(More)
To obtain an optimal condition for ultrasound (US)-induced apoptosis that could be useful for cancer therapy, we applied low intensity pulsed US to sonicate U937 cells in vitro. Cells were then incubated at different time intervals before measuring apoptosis. The apoptosis was assessed by DNA fragmentation and phosphatidylserine externalization. The pattern(More)
To verify the effect of echo-contrast agent (ECA) on apoptosis induced by ultrasound, leukemia cell lines (Jurkat, Molt-4 and U937) were sonicated at intensities previously shown to induce optimal apoptosis with or without Levovist, an ECA. The results showed that loss of viability and apoptosis can be induced in all three cell lines, apoptosis highest with(More)
