Cancer gene therapy strategies for inducing apoptosis in solid tumors may allow contemporary medicine to reassess its management of these cancers. We demonstrated previously that overexpression of the wild-type p53 gene in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck cell lines via adenovirus-mediated gene transfer suppressed growth both in vitro and in(More)
In order to better understand the molecular basis of heterosis in maize, the methylation-sensitive amplification polymorphism method was used to estimate patterns of cytosine methylation in seedling roots and leaves and 15-d postfertilization embryo and endosperm tissues of hybrids and their parental lines Zheng58 and Chang7-2. In all tissues, total(More)
Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a metabolic disorder secondary to a deficiency of the hepatic enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH). The recent creation of a mouse strain for PAH deficiency has provided an excellent model system to explore the possibility of its phenotypic correction by hepatic gene therapy. A recombinant retrovirus containing the mouse PAH cDNA(More)
A visualization tool for EPA's Community Multiscale Air Quality modeling system, VisCMAQ, which is developed in this study as an OpenGL based visualization tool that has the capability to render data on both regular and irregular grids. The goal of this project is to enhance the VisCTM model, which was created last summer with additional flexibilities such(More)
