Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs), due to their pluripotent nature, represent a particularly relevant model system to study the relationship between the replication program and differentiation state. Here, we define the basic properties of the replication program in hESCs and compare them to the programs of hESC-derived multipotent cells (neural rosette(More)
The mechanical force incurred by spinal cord injury results in degenerative neural tissue damage beyond the site of initial injury. By nature, the central nervous system (CNS) does not regenerate itself. Cell therapy, in particular, stem cell implantation has become a possible solution for spinal cord injury. Embryonic stem cells and fetal stem cells are(More)
Several fluoroquinolone antibacterial agents exhibit an adverse phototoxic effect in humans and are photo-cocarcinogenic in mice. The UV-induced production of reactive oxygen species plays a role in the toxicity and may be involved in carcinogenicity. Four fluoroquinolones were examined for the ability to photochemically produce oxidative damage in naked(More)
Seventy consecutive patients with adenocarcinoma of the colon and rectum had a liver scan followed by surgical exploration of the liver. Preoperatively, blood chemistry studies were done in addition to palpation of the abdomen. Surgical findings were correlated to results of the liver scans, function tests and palpation of the liver. The overall concordance(More)
The hydrogen bonding interactions between the Klenow fragment of Escherichia coli DNA polymerase I with the proofreading exonuclease inactivated (KF(-)) and the minor groove of DNA were examined with modified oligodeoxynucleotides in which 3-deazaguanine (3DG) replaced guanine. This substitution would prevent a hydrogen bond from forming between the(More)
