We have developed a primer set for a prokaryotic differential display of mRNA in the Enterobacteriaceae group. Each combination of ten 10mer and ten 11mer primers generates up to 85 bands from total Escherichia coli RNA, thus covering expressed sequences of a complete bacterial genome. Due to the lack of polyadenylation in prokaryotic RNA the type T11VN(More)
Tumor suppressor genes play a prominent role in the modification and progression of urinary bladder carcinogenesis as a result of classic genetic alterations. Little is known about the potential significance of epigenetic events, mediated by DNA hypermethylation. This prompted our investigation to explore the global Alu methylation and the promoter(More)
BACKGROUND Human urokinase-type plasminogen activator has been implicated in the regulation and control of basement membrane and interstitial protein degradation. Because of its role in tissue remodeling, urokinase is a central player in the disease progression of cancer, making it an attractive target for design of an anticancer clinical agent: Few(More)
To explore the significance of epigenetic mechanisms in urinary bladder carcinogenesis mediated by methylation of cytosine in CpG dinucleotides at 5' promoter regions, we analysed the methylation status of a broad panel of different genes in transitional cell carcinomas (TCC) and nonurothelial cancers, among which the 14-3-3 sigma, SYK and CAGE-1 genes were(More)
Inhibition of the proteolytic activity of urokinase has been shown to inhibit the progression of tumors in rodent models and is being investigated for use in human disease. Understanding the rodent/human species-specificity of urokinase inhibitors is therefore critical for interpretation of rodent cancer progression models that use these inhibitors. We(More)
Experimental results are presented from vacuum-ultraviolet free-electron laser (FEL) operating in the self-amplified spontaneous emission (SASE) mode. The generation of ultrashort radiation pulses became possible due to specific tailoring of the bunch charge distribution. A complete characterization of the linear and nonlinear modes of the SASE FEL(More)
