Regulated cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) levels and activities are critical for the proper progression of the cell division cycle. p12(DOC-1) is a growth suppressor isolated from normal keratinocytes. We report that p12(DOC-1) associates with CDK2. More specifically, p12(DOC-1) associates with the monomeric nonphosphorylated form of CDK2 (p33CDK2). Ectopic(More)
Dysregulation of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is one of the most frequently studied molecular events leading to oral carcinogenesis. Overexpression of EGFR is a common event in many human solid tumors. Elevated levels of EGFR mRNA in human cancer occur with and without gene rearrangement. Structural alterations in the receptor can also result(More)
BACKGROUND The Human Genome Project, or HGP, has inspired a great deal of exciting biology recently by enabling the development of new technologies that will be essential for understanding the different types of abnormalities in diseases related to the oral cavity. LITERATURE REVIEWED The authors review current literature pertaining to the advanced(More)
PURPOSE p12DOC-1 is a growth suppressor that negatively regulates cyclin-dependent kinase 2 (CDK2) activities. Expression of p12DOC-1 is reduced and/or lost in tumor tissues. The purpose of this study is to correlate in vivo the expression of p12DOC-1 in oral cancer tissues by immunohistochemistry with clinical and pathological parameters. EXPERIMENTAL(More)
We have identified, isolated, and partially characterized doc-1, a novel cDNA sequence whose activity is consistent with a suppressor of hamster oral carcinogenesis. Doc-1 is an evolutionarily conserved gene exhibiting loss of heterozygosity and marked reduction in expression in malignant hamster oral keratinocytes. The full-length doc-1 cDNA encodes an 87(More)
p12(DOC-1) is a growth suppressor identified and isolated from normal keratinocytes. Ectopic expression of p12(DOC-1) in squamous carcinoma cells led to the reversion of in vitro transformation phenotypes including anchorage independence, doubling time, and morphology. Here we report that p12(DOC-1) associates with DNA polymerase alpha/primase(More)
Current advances in biomolecular technology allow precise genetic fingerprinting of specific cells responsible for the pathogenesis of human diseases. This study demonstrates the feasibility of generating target samples from laser capture microdissection (LCM) tissues suitable for hybridization of high-density oligonucleotide arrays for gene expression(More)
Loss of anatomical form due to wear has been cited as one factor limiting the clinical use of posterior composites. The physical properties and possibly the wear resistance of composite are influenced by the extent to which it is cured. The aim of this study was to vary degree of conversion (DC) in composites to test the hypothesis that resistance to wear(More)
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) and transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha) are known to promote the healing of epithelial wounds. Eosinophils are present in healing wounds and have recently been shown to be capable of producing TGF-alpha. This investigation was done to determine if eosinophils infiltrated into healing wounds are capable of expressing(More)
Analysis of single-cell gene expression promises a more precise understanding of human disease pathogenesis and important diagnostic applications. Here, we review the rationale for the study of gene expression at the single-cell level, practical methods to isolate homogeneous or single-cell samples, and current approaches to the analysis of single-cell gene(More)
