The level of expression of several cellular protooncogenes is examined at different stages of 7,12-dimethylbenzanthracene (DMBA)-induced tumor development in hamster buccal pouch epithelium (HBPE). Results presented demonstrate overexpression of c-Ha-ras gene at a very early stage of tumor development, and this elevated level of expression of the gene(More)
BACKGROUND Wheat-rye addition lines are an old topic. However, the alterations and abnormal mitotic behaviours of wheat chromosomes caused by wheat-rye monosomic addition lines are seldom reported. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Octoploid triticale was derived from common wheat T. aestivum L. 'Mianyang11'×rye S. cereale L. 'Kustro' and some progeny were(More)
BACKGROUND Monosomic alien addition lines (MAALs) can easily induce structural variation of chromosomes and have been used in crop breeding; however, it is unclear whether MAALs will induce drastic genetic and epigenetic alterations. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS In the present study, wheat-rye 2R and 5R MAALs together with their selfed progeny and(More)
A clonal strain of human lung tumor cells in culture (ChaGo), derived from a bronchogenic carcinoma, synthesizes and secretes large amounts of alpha (alpha) and a comparatively lower level of beta (beta) subunit of the glycoprotein hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). ChaGo cells lost their characteristic anchorage-independent growth phenotype in(More)
We purified many kinds of antifreeze proteins with high activity from the leaves of Ammopiptanthus mongolicus by several biochemical techniques. The antifreeze activities of these AFPs were measured by both osmometry and differential scanning calorimetry, and the inhibition of growth of ice crystals by the AFPs was obvious. Additionally, the antifreeze(More)
Experiments were performed to determine the rate at which hamster buccal pouch epithelium (HBPE) is committed to neoplastic development during a regimen of biweekly topical applications of 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) in mineral oil, administered for 1, 2, 3, 5 or 10 weeks. Evaluated indices of neoplastic commitment were: (i) primary tumor(More)
Dimethylbenzanthracene (DMBA) stimulates expression of P1-450 gene in human lung tumor cells (ChaGo). A concentration and time-dependent increase in the level of P1-450 specific mRNA sequences has been observed in ChaGo cells treated with sublethal concentrations of DMBA. The methylation pattern of "-CCGG-" sequence of most of the coding region and of the(More)
