Agarose gel electrophoresis, a very routine procedure, requires molecular weight standards; these are usually manufactured from plasmid or viral DNA fragments, or more recently, from PCR products of defined sizes. We describe here the preparation of a molecular weight standard from a completely different DNA source - the uniquely organized genome of the(More)
1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) (1,25D(3)) is a powerful differentiation agent, which has potential for treatment of myeloid leukemias and other types of cancer, but the calcemia produced by pharmacologically active doses precludes the use of this agent in the clinic. We have shown that carnosic acid, the major rosemary polyphenol, enhances the(More)
OBJECTIVE Differentiation therapy with the hormonal form of vitamin D, 1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) (1,25D(3)), is a promising approach to treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML); however, 1,25D(3) induces hypercalcemia at pharmacologically active doses. We investigated the in vitro and in vivoantileukemic efficacy of combined treatment with non-toxic(More)
BACKGROUND The transcribed sequences of a cell, the transcriptome, represent the trans-acting fraction of the genetic information, yet eukaryotic cDNA libraries are typically made from only the poly-adenylated fraction. The non-coding or translated but non-polyadenylated RNAs are therefore not represented. The goal of this study was to develop a method that(More)
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is an aggressive hematologic malignancy characterized by extremely heterogeneous molecular and biologic abnormalities that hamper the development of effective targeted treatment modalities. While AML cells are highly sensitive to cytotoxic Ca2+ overload, the feasibility of Ca2+- targeted therapy of this disease remains unclear.(More)
