Neocarzinostatin (NCS) is a naturally occurring enediyne antitumor agent that produces single- and double-strand breaks in cellular DNA. We have previously shown that treatment of human (SK-N-SH) and murine (NB41A3) neuroblastoma cells with NCS results in cell death for a subpopulation within the culture. The remaining cells undergo mitotic arrest with(More)
The inotropic and radioligand binding characteristics of arachidonic acid (AA) and the fish oil derivative, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), were studied. AA alone was a concentration-dependent negative inotrope in isolated hamster papillary muscles. The negative inotropic effect of AA was enhanced 500-fold by the coadministration of indomethacin(More)
Chemotherapeutic agent-induced DNA cleavage gives rise to apoptosis in a subpopulation of SK-N-SH human neuroblastoma cells; the remaining cells undergo Schwann cell-like differentiation. Like other neural crest and primitive neurectodermal tumor-derived cell lines, SK-N-SH cultures contain cells of neural (N-type) and epithelial (substrate-adherent, or(More)
Using technology tools in math instruction can help stimulate problem-solving skills and understanding of math concepts. However, teachers need to be confident in their abilities to use technology tools. This study investigated whether or not a four-week in-service professional development institute that addressed the use of technology in math education(More)
We compared the effects of Phospholipases A2, C, B and D on [3H]nitrendipine binding to hamster cardiac membranes, in the absence and presence of ATP or GTP. Phospholipase A2, competitively inhibited [3H]nitrendipine binding to hamster cardiac membranes unchanged by ATP or GTP (Ki = 5 ng/ml); as evidenced by complete and reversible displacement of(More)
