Exposure to specific polychlorinated diaromatic hydrocarbons (PCDH), such as 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD, dioxin), produces a wide variety of species- and tissue-specific toxic and biological effects. Many of these responses are mediated by the Ah receptor (AhR) and are modulated by the interaction of the PCDH:AhR complex with its DNA(More)
The Ah receptor (AhR) is a ligand-dependent transcription factor that mediates biological and toxicological actions of halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons such as 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin. Although much is known about the biochemical and molecular mechanisms of AhR action, little is known about the factors and events that control expression of the(More)
Using recombinant cell lines showing Ah receptor-controlled expression of a luciferase reporter gene, the interaction of di-ortho-substitute polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) with Ah receptor agonists was studied. In the recombinant Hepa1c1c7 mouse hepatoma (H1L1.1c7) cells strong antagonistic interaction of 2,2',5,5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl (PCB52) with(More)
The aromatic hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) is a ligand-dependent basic helix-loop-helix-PAS-containing transcription factor which is activated by chemicals such as 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin. Constitutive expression of the AhR gene occurs in a tissue- and developmentally specific manner and appears to be altered by chemicals which affect histone(More)
Primary open-angle glaucoma is a condition associated with an elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) that is defined as optic degeneration with a slowly progressive deterioration of the visual field that may lead to blindness. More than 1 million Americans are being treated for glaucoma, and 80,000 are legally blind as a result of the disease. Glaucoma has its(More)
A cache was first used in a commercial computer in 1968,<supscrpt>1</supscrpt> and researchers have spent the last 15 years analyzing caches and suggesting improvements. In designing a VLSI instruction cache for a RISC microprocessor we have uncovered four ideas potentially applicable to other VLSI machines. These ideas provide expansible cache memory,(More)
