Screening of synthetic retinoids for activity against prostate carcinoma cell lines has identified antagonists of retinoic acid receptors (RARs) as potent growth inhibitors (Hammond et al, 2001, Br J Cancer 85, 453-462). Here we report that 5 days of exposure to a high-affinity pan-RAR antagonist (AGN194310) abolished growth of prostate carcinoma cells from(More)
Antiserum has been raised to a chromosomal protein fraction specific for Hela cells. The immunoactivity is located in the transcriptionally inactive regions of log phase chromatin. Digestion of metaphase chromosomes results in the purification of the immunoactivity in the scaffold region of the chromosomes. Extensive nuclease digestion of the scaffolds(More)
