Genomic instability is characterized by the increased rate of acquisition of alterations in the mammalian genome. These changes encompass a diverse set of biological end points including karyotypic abnormalities, gene mutation and amplification, cellular transformation, clonal heterogeneity and delayed reproductive cell death. The loss of stability of the(More)
Phosphodiesterase 11A (PDE11A) is the most recently identified family of phosphodiesterases (PDEs), the only known enzymes to break down cyclic nucleotides. The tissue expression profile of this dual specificity PDE is controversial, and little is understood of its biological function, particularly in the brain. We seek here to determine if PDE11A is(More)
Lead toxicity is known to be subject to individual susceptibility. This study compares two lead-exposed subjects, one (A; blood Pb 1800 micrograms/L) who remained totally asymptomatic, the other (B; blood Pb 1610 micrograms/L) who showed symptoms of toxicity. We have assessed the speciation of lead in the intra-erythrocyte proteins in these patients and(More)
The reported geographical association between Alzheimer's disease and levels of aluminium (Al) in water supplies may reflect the inverse relation between Al and silicon (Si) concentrations in water, and the potential for Si to reduce the bioavailability of the metal. We tested this hypothesis using isotopic 26Al tracer administered orally to five healthy(More)
Individuals with Down's Syndrome (DS) develop the neuropathological features of senile dementia of the Alzheimer's type (SDAT) by early middle age. Because of recent evidence that gastrointestinal (GI) aluminum (Al) absorption is increased in patients with SDAT, and that Al may contribute to associated neuropathological changes, we have investigated the GI(More)
Problems inherent to the in vivo localization of anti-brain tumor antibodies. Cerebral physiology in dogs after brain tumor induction with Schmidt-Ruppin Rous sarcoma virus: experiences with radioiodinated normal and antiviral immunoglobulin G. The fine structure of canine gliomas and intracranial sarcomas induced by the Schmidt-Ruppin strain of the Rous(More)
