Positron emission tomography (PET) is a minimally invasive technique which has been well validated for the diagnosis, staging, monitoring of response to therapy, and disease surveillance of adult oncology patients. Traditionally the value of PET and PET/computed tomography (CT) hybrid imaging has been less clearly defined for paediatric oncology. However(More)
Chromatin structure at the silencer region of the epsilon-globin promoter was investigated using novel nitrogen mustards as probes of protein--DNA interactions. Sites of protection and enhancement that corresponded to known transcription factor binding sites were detected in both K562 and HeLa cells at this gene region. Protection was observed at several(More)
The human beta-globin locus control region DNase I hypersensitive site-2 (LCR HS-2) is erythroid-specific and is located 10.9 kb upstream of the epsilon-globin gene. Most studies have only examined the core region of HS-2. However, previous studies in this laboratory indicate that positioned nucleosomes are present at the 5'- and 3'-flanking regions of(More)
