We have attempted to use a familial genetics strategy to study mechanisms of topoisomerase 1 (Top1) inhibition. Investigations have steadily been chipping away at the pathways involved in cellular response following Top1 inhibition for more than 20 years. Our system-wide approach, which phenotypes a collection of genotyped human cell lines for sensitivity(More)
We have compared the pattern of neural catecholamine fluorescence with that of immunoreactivity for the catecholamine-synthesizing enzymes tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and DOPA decarboxylase (DDC) in dog atrium, which is innervated by noradrenergic nerves, and in dog kidney, which is thought to be supplied by dopaminergic nerves as well. In both tissues the(More)
Using a technique by which binding sites for two antibodies can be visualized in single tissue sections, we have studied the distribution of neurones containing DOPA decarboxylase-like and dopamine beta-hydroxylase-like immunoreactivity in ganglia of dog sympathetic chain. Three types of neurones could be distinguished: those that contained both enzymes,(More)
The generation of nitrite (NO(2) (-)) was used as an index of the production of nitric oxide by human and rat polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) and rat peritoneal macrophages. Human peripheral blood PMN did not produce significant levels of NO(2) (-). Attempts to induce NO(2) (-) generation in human PMN by incubation with GM-CSF (1 nM), TNFalpha (0.3 nM),(More)
The detection of gene-gene and gene-environment interactions in genetic association studies presents a difficult computational and statistical challenge, especially as advances in genotyping technology have rapidly expanded the number of potential genetic predictors in such studies. The scale of these studies makes exhaustive search approaches infeasible,(More)
Some of the paravertebral sympathetic ganglia of the dog contain relatively large amounts of dopamine, which we have suggested previously is localized in dopaminergic neurones. However, the possibility exists that intraganglionic chromaffin-like cells may also be a source of dopamine. In order to resolve this question, we have examined the distribution of(More)
Grammatical evolution neural networks (GENN) is a commonly utilized method at identifying difficult to detect gene-gene and gene-environment interactions. It has been shown to be an effective tool in the prediction of common diseases using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). However, GENN lacks interpretability because it is a black box model.(More)
