The enhancement of tumor development following acute stress has been demonstrated in some animal studies. This study was designed to explore mechanisms that would account in part for the relationship between stress and tumor development at the level of DNA repair, using a rat model. Forty-four rats were given the carcinogen dimethylnitrosamine in their(More)
Early passage normal human fetal kidney epithelial cells were inoculated on top of a confluent monolayer of X-ray lethally irradiated human fibroblasts to determine the colony-forming ability of these epithelial cells. The results indicate that the great majority of the epithelial cells did not have the clonogenic ability on the fibroblast cell mat,(More)
The functional capacity of a cell, tissue, organ, or organism is dependent upon its ability to maintain the stability of its unit components. The higher the differentiated state of the system, the greater the amount of stability required to maintain that state as a function of time. Stability can be achieved via either redundancy or repair. Redundancy while(More)
Providing mechanisms to improve energy efficiency of mobile devices is, in the past few years, one of the important objectives in the field of green computing and energy savings. Several studies have addressed this issue from different point of views, i.e., hardware, software, as well as by analyzing the energy drained by different mobile applications. On(More)
This study reports a rapid assay to distinguish depurination from other forms of alkaline-labile lesions induced in DNA by alkylating agents. Covalently closed circular duplex PM2 DNA was treated with various alkylating agents such as N-methyl-N-nitrosourea, dimethyl sulfate, methyl methanesulfonate, N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea, diethyl sulfate, and ethyl(More)
Kinetic analyses of the irreversible inhibition of L-tyrosine and L-phenylalanine transport in Bacillus subtilis by phenylalanine chloromethyl ketone revealed that the inhibition was due to an affinity labeling process. Phenylalanine chloromethyl ketone is a competetive inhibitor of L-tyrosine and L-phenylalanine transport. The K, values for irreversible(More)
