The determination of the structure of transient molecules, such as photoexcited states, in disordered media (such as in solution) usually requires methods with high temporal resolution. The transient molecular structure of a reaction intermediate produced by photoexcitation of NiTPP-L2 (NiTPP, nickeltetraphenylporphyrin; L, piperidine) in solution was(More)
Amplification of the MYCN gene is a characteristic feature of many neuroblastomas and is correlated with aggressive tumor growth. Amplicons containing this gene form either double minutes (dmins) or homogeneously staining regions (HSRs). To study the nuclear topology of these tumor-specific and transcriptionally active chromatin structures in comparison to(More)
Orthotopic bladder cancer xenografts are essential for testing novel therapies and molecular manipulations of cell lines in vivo. Current xenografts rely on tumor cell inoculation by intravesical instillation or direct injection into the bladder wall. Instillation is limited by the lack of cell lines that are tumorigenic when delivered in this manner. The(More)
Optimal animal models of muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) are necessary to overcome the current lack of novel targeted therapies for this malignancy. Here we report on the establishment and characterization of patient-derived primary xenografts (PDX). Patient tumors were grafted under the renal capsule of mice and subsequently transplanted over(More)
Orthotopic bladder cancer xenografts are the gold standard to study molecular cellular manipulations and new therapeutic agents in vivo. Suitable cell lines are inoculated either by intravesical instillation (model of nonmuscle invasive growth) or intramural injection into the bladder wall (model of invasive growth). Both procedures are complex and highly(More)
In this work the structure of (1100)M-plane GaN epitaxially grown on γ-LiAlO 2 (100) by using plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy (PAMBE) is studied. The heteroepitaxial alignment and the microstruc-ture of M-plane GaN as well as the defect formation in the layer are systematically investigated by using transmission electron microscopy (TEM). GaN is well(More)
Three operators each made five recordings from 15 symptomatic patients using the electronic mandibular position indicator. The method consisted of measuring bilateral spatial changes of the hinge axis recalculated by the computer to an intercondylar distance of 110 mm and a third position, calculated from the rotation of the hinge axis, at the incisal(More)
High-resolution infrared and microwave spectra of He(N)-carbonyl sulfide (He(N)-OCS) clusters with N ranging from 2 to 8 have been detected and unambiguously assigned. The spectra show the formation of a solvation layer beginning with an equatorial "donut" of five helium atoms around the OCS molecule. The cluster moment of inertia increases as a function of(More)
Rotational spectra of perfluorobutyric acid (PFBA) and its monohydrate were studied with a broadband chirped pulse and a narrow-band cavity based Fourier transform microwave spectrometer, and high-level ab initio calculations. Extensive conformational searches were performed for both the acid and its monohydrate at the MP2/6-311++G(2d,p) level of theory.(More)
