EBP-80, a transcription factor closely resembling the human autoantigen Ku, recognizes single- to double-strand transitions in DNA.
We have previously reported the purification and characterization of the transcription factor EBP-80 (Falzon, M., and Kuff, E. L. (1989) J. Biol. Chem. 264, 21915-21922). EBP-80 mediates the DNAExpand

DNA-dependent protein kinase is activated by nicks and larger single-stranded gaps.
DNA-PK is a DNA-activated serine/threonine protein kinase capable of phosphorylating a number of nuclear DNA-binding proteins. Purified human DNA-PK has two subunits, a 350-kDa polypeptide, Prkdc,Expand

Binding of the transcription factor EBP-80 mediates the methylation response of an intracisternal A-particle long terminal repeat promoter.
Intracisternal A-particle (IAP) expression in mouse cells has been correlated with hypomethylation of HhaI and HpaII sites in proviral long terminal repeats (LTRs). In a previous study, in vitroExpand

Comparative effects of indomethacin on hepatic enzymes and histology and on serum indices of liver and kidney function in the rat.
The effects of high-dose indomethacin (three daily dose, 8.5 mg/kg ip) on pathology and histology, on serum and urine biochemistry, and on various hepatic enzyme activities were studied in rats.Expand

Metabolic activation and cytotoxicity of 4-ipomeanol in human non-small cell lung cancer lines.
In the normal lungs of many animal species, 4-ipomeanol is transformed to a highly reactive metabolite preferentially in pulmonary bronchiolar Clara cells and to a lesser extent in alveolar type IIExpand

Preferential metabolism of N-nitrosodiethylamine by two cell lines derived from human pulmonary adenocarcinomas.
Diethylnitrosamine (DEN), in common with other nitrosamines, is a carcinogenic agent which produces tumors in a wide variety of tissues in experimental animals. The pulmonary Clara cell is a majorExpand

Inhibition of N-diethylnitrosamine metabolism by human lung cancer cell lines with features of well differentiated pulmonary endocrine cells.
Cell lines derived from a human pulmonary carcinoid tumor (NCI-H727) and from a human pulmonary large cell carcinoma (NCI-H460) were investigated by transmission electron microscopy. Both cell lines,Expand

Cell type-specific differences in metabolic activation of N-nitrosodiethylamine by human lung cancer cell lines.
The metabolism of N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA) and its modulation by inhibitors of cytochrome P450 and prostaglandin H synthetase enzymes was investigated in seven well-differentiated early-passageExpand

Decreased hepatic microsomal cytochrome P450 due to indomethacin: protective roles of 16,16-dimethylprostaglandin F2 alpha and inducing agents.
Indomethacin administration to rats caused a dose-dependent decrease in hepatic microsomal cytochrome P450, aminopyrine N-demethylase, ethoxyresorufin O-de-ethylase and benzyloxyresorufinExpand
