Expression of beta-catenin and full-length APC protein in normal and neoplastic colonic tissues.
Mutations of the APC gene are thought to be early events in the process of colorectal carcinogenesis. Although the complete function(s) of the APC gene product is not known, it has been shown thatExpand

Thermostable uracil-DNA glycosylase from Thermotoga maritima a member of a novel class of DNA repair enzymes
Uracil-DNA glycosylase (UDG) is a ubiquitous enzyme found in eukaryotes and prokaryotes [1][2][3]. This enzyme removes uracil bases that are present in DNA as a result of either deamination ofExpand

Uracil-DNA Glycosylase in the Extreme Thermophile Archaeoglobus fulgidus *
Uracil-DNA glycosylase (UDG) is an essential enzyme for maintaining genomic integrity. Here we describe a UDG from the extreme thermophile Archaeoglobus fulgidus. The enzyme is a member of a newExpand

Purification and characterization of Thermotoga maritima endonuclease IV, a thermostable apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease and 3'-repair diesterase.
An endonuclease IV homolog was identified as the product of a conceptual open reading frame in the genome of the hyperthermophilic bacterium Thermotoga maritima. The T. maritima endonuclease IV geneExpand

Characterization of a polymorphism in NAD(P)H: quinone oxidoreductase (DT-diaphorase).
NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase (NQO1, EC is an obligate two-electron reductase that can either bioactivate or detoxify quinones and has been proposed to play an important role inExpand

Assessment of tumor cell kinetics by immunohistochemistry in carcinoma of breast
Cell proliferation was assessed in 33 invasive breast carcinomas by an immunoperoxidase procedure using the monoclonal antibody, Ki‐67, which reacts with a nuclear antigen in proliferating cells. TheExpand

Removal of UV light-induced pyrimidine-pyrimidone(6-4) products from Escherichia coli DNA requires the uvrA, uvrB, and urvC gene products.
Ultraviolet light induces the formation of cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers and pyrimidine- pyrimidone (6-4) photoproducts in cellular DNA. In Escherichia coli, the uvrA, uvrB, and uvrC genes areExpand

Escherichia coli DNA photolyase reverses cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers but not pyrimidine-pyrimidone (6-4) photoproducts.
The effect of purified Escherichia coli DNA photolyase on the UV light-induced pyrimidine-pyrimidone (6-4) photoproduct and cyclobutane pyrimidine dimer was investigated in vitro using enzymeExpand

Escherichia coli single-stranded DNA binding protein stimulates the DNA deoxyribophosphodiesterase activity of exonuclease I.
The E. coli single-stranded binding protein (SSB) has been demonstrated in vitro to be involved in a number of replicative, DNA renaturation, and protective functions. It was shown previously thatExpand

Multiple uracil-DNA glycosylase activities in Deinococcus radiodurans.
The extremely radiation resistant bacterium, Deinococcus radiodurans, contains a spectrum of genes that encode for multiple activities that repair DNA damage. We have cloned and expressed the productExpand
