Polynucleotide relationships were examined among many representatives of the Enterobacteriaceae by means of agar, membrane filter, and hydroxyapatite procedures. The amount of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) that reassociated was dependent, especially in interspecific reactions, on the annealing temperature. In only three cases: Escherichia coli-Shigella(More)

Bacteriol. 91:1136-1139. 1966.-Various properties have been determined for two bacteriophages, NCMB 384 and 385, and their host, NCMB 397, a Cytophaga sp., isolated from the marine environment. The(More)
9,10-Anthracenedicarboxaldehyde bis[(4,5-dihydro-1H-imidazol-2-yl)hydrazone] dihydrochloride (CL 216942; bisantrene hydrochloride; NSC 337766), a member of a new chemical class of compounds with antineoplastic properties, has been evaluated for antitumor activity in experimental murine tumor systems. The compound produced significant increases in life span(More)
A series of 3,6-bis(aminoalkoxy)acridines (2) was prepared and shown to have a protective antiviral effect against an interferon-sensitive virus (Columbia SK) and to partially restore an antibody response to a T-cell-dependent antigen in leukemic immunosuppressed mice. The presence of circulating interferon and the stimulation of natural killer cell(More)
Single doses of 14C-labeled bisantrene, a new antitumor agent, were administered intravenously at 10 and 100 mg/kg to mice bearing intraperitoneally implanted B16 melanoma. At 24 hr after dosing, the tumors contained relatively high drug concentrations as compared to most of the other tissues. The concentrations averaged 2.4 and 28.3 micrograms/g tumor and(More)
9,10-Anthracenedicarboxaldehyde bis[(4,5-dihydro-1H-imidazol-2-yl)hydrazone] (bisantrene, VI-1) showed anticancer activity in mice vs. both leukemias and solid tumors. Increases in life span vs. the following neoplasms were: P-388 leukemia, 137%; B-16 melanoma, 122%; Lieberman plasma cell tumor, greater than 85%; colon tumor 26, 150%; Ridgway osteogenic(More)
The synthesis, stability, and antitumor activity of a series of water-soluble third generation platinum(II) complexes have been described. Among these complexes, [2,2-bis(aminomethyl)-1,3- propanediol-N,N'] [1,1-cyclobutanedicarboxylato(2-)-O,O']platinum(II) and [1,1-cyclobutanedicarboxylate(2-)-O,O'](tetrahydro-4H-pyran-4,4-(More)
