OBJECTIVE To pilot and test the feasibility of a novel technology to reduce anxiety and pain associated with an invasive medical procedure in children with cancer. METHOD Children with cancer (ages 7-19) whose treatment protocols required access of their subcutaneous venous port device (port access) were randomly assigned to a virtual reality distraction(More)
Arabidopsis END1-LIKE (AtEND1) was identified as a homolog of the barley endosperm-specific gene END1 and provides a model for the study of this class of genes and their products. The END1 is expressed in the endosperm transfer cells (ETC) of grasses. The ETC are responsible for transfer of nutrients from maternal tissues to the developing endosperm.(More)
Two-dimensional (2-D) electrophoresis of collagenase-digested human glomerular basement membrane (GBM), containing the Goodpasture antigen, revealed a range of monomeric (24-30 kD) and dimeric (43-56 kD) subunits present across a pI range of 3-10. Five distinct alpha(IV)-chains were identified by amino-terminal sequence analysis of 18 of these components(More)
20096 Background: The purpose of this study was to determine the potential of gene signature development to also identify leads among different tumor types compared to normal cells. The theory is that cancer cells will express unique markers that are related to their growth and metastatic potential and therefore be potential targets for therapeutics. (More)
The displacement of methyl green, a dye bound ionically to double stranded DNA, has been suggested as a potential assay for drug-DNA interaction. The present investigation studies the equilibrium system of methyl green, its colorless carbinol form and DNA in the presence of salt (MgSO4), ethidium bromide, and quinine. The reversibility of the equilibrium,(More)
