While the most conspicuous response to low red/far-red ratios (R:FR) of shade light perceived by phytochrome is the promotion of stem growth, additional, less obvious effects may be discovered by studying changes in the stem transcriptome. Here, we report rapid and reversible stem transcriptome responses to R:FR in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum). As(More)
Taxol is a unique mitotic inhibitor that has entered phase II investigation. Phase I studies demonstrated hypersensitivity reactions that were related to the cremophor vehicle and to the rate of drug infusion. As a result, the time span of intravenous (IV) infusion of taxol was routinely prolonged to 6 hours or beyond, and premedication with(More)
Sulofenur (LY186641), a diarylsulfonylurea, was evaluated clinically utilizing either a daily x 21 schedule or a daily x 5 (with 2 days off) for 3 weeks schedule. Eighteen patients with refractory solid tumors received 47 evaluable courses of sulofenur given p.o. daily x 21 every 28 days at five dose levels while 14 received 29 courses of sulofenur given(More)
In many plant species, the duration of the daily exposure to light (photoperiod) provides a seasonal cue that helps to adjust flowering time to the most favourable time of the year. In Arabidopsis thaliana, the core mechanism of acceleration of flowering by long days involves the stabilisation of the CONSTANS (CO) protein by light reaching the leaves, the(More)
Deoxyspergualin (DSG) is an analog of the polyamine spergualin with preclinical evidence of activity in murine and human tumor models. This phase I study examined a 120 h continuous infusion schedule in 56 patients with refractory solid tumors at doses ranging from 80 to 2792 mg/m2/day. Dose-limiting toxicity was reversible hypotension and appeared to be(More)
Long days repeatedly enhance the expression of the FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT) gene during the evening and early night. This signal induces flowering despite low FT expression the rest of the day. To investigate whether this temporal behaviour transmits information, plants of Arabidopsis thaliana were exposed to different day-night cycles, including combinations(More)
