A major unresolved question for 11q23 translocations involving MLL is the chromosomal mechanism(s) leading to these translocations. We have mapped breakpoints within the 8.3-kb BamHI breakpoint cluster region in 31 patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) de novo and in 8 t-AML patients. In 23 of 31 leukemia de novo(More)
Translocations involving chromosome band 11q23, found in acute lymphoid and myeloid leukemias, disrupt the MLL gene. This gene encodes a putative transcription factor with regions of homology to several other proteins including the zinc fingers and other domains of the Drosophila trithorax gene product, and the "AT-hook" DNA-binding motif of high mobility(More)
By using a shuttle vector system developed in our laboratory, we have carried out studies on the molecular mechanism by which 5-bromodeoxyuridine (BrdUrd) induces mutations in mammalian cells. The target for mutagenesis in these studies was the Escherichia coli gpt gene that was contained within a retroviral shuttle vector and integrated into chromosomal(More)
Interstitial deletions of the short arm of chromosome 9 are associated with glioma, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, melanoma, mesothelioma, lung cancer, and bladder cancer. The distal breakpoints of the deletions (in relation to the centromere) in 14 glioma and leukemia cell lines have been mapped within the 400 kb IFN gene cluster located at band 9p21. To(More)
This work describes a cell-based assay that does not depend on radioactivity or laboratory animals for the detection of ligands of angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R). The assay makes use of stable transfected Chinese hamster ovary cells (CHO-AT1R) expressing the AT1R. A sequential saturation assay principle was used in which receptor binding sites of the(More)
The synthesis of spacer-linked neoaminoglycoside 5 is described. Key steps of the synthesis are the introduction of nitrogen functionalities at C-3 and C-6 and the olefin cross metathesis of allyl glycoside 16. Although it is known that Grubbs catalysts tolerate nitrogen functionalities, difficulties were encountered in the cross metathesis reaction.(More)
