12-lipoxygenase-catalyzed arachidonic acid metabolism in normal and neoplastic mouse epidermis was assessed by cDNA cloning of the epidermal 12-lipoxygenases and by studying their expression patterns, enzyme activities, and product levels. Papillomas and squamous cell carcinomas induced by the initiation/promotion protocol contained 50- to 60-fold more(More)
The impairment of protein degradation via the ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) is present in sporadic Parkinson's disease (PD), and might play a key role in selective degeneration of vulnerable dopamine (DA) neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SN). Further evidence for a causal role of dysfunctional UPS in familial PD comes from mutations in(More)
The in situ hybridization technique has been used to localize adenovirus type 12 (Ad12) genomes on specific chromosomes of Ad12-transformed hamster cells as well as on specific chromosomes of human cells productively infected with Ad12. Hamster cell lines T637 and A2497-2 contain 20 to 22 and 17 copies of Ad12 DNA, respectively, in an integrated form. The(More)
Using a combination of conventional screening procedures and polymerase chain reaction cloning, we have isolated a cDNA encoding an epidermis-type 12-lipoxygenase (e12-lipoxygenase) from mouse epidermis. The open reading frame corresponds to a protein of 662 amino acids and was found to be 99.8% identical to the ORF of an epidermal lipoxygenase gene Aloxe,(More)
KRAS is mutated in >90% of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas. As its inactivation leads to tumour regression, mutant KRAS is considered an attractive target for anticancer drugs. In this study we report a new delivery strategy for a G4-decoy oligonucleotide that sequesters MAZ, a transcription factor essential for KRAS transcription. It is based on the use(More)
The following restriction endonuclease fragments of human adenovirus type 12 (Ad12) DNA have been cloned in plasmid or bacteriophage lambda vectors using standard protocols: the EcoRI-A*, -B, -D, -E, and -F fragments, the BamHI-B, -C, -D, -F, -G, -H, and -I fragments, the HindIII-F and -I fragments, and the PstI-A, -D, -F, -G, and -H fragments. The EcoRI-A*(More)
