OCEANOGRAPHYOcean scientists faced with budget cuts for new instrumentation ([see main text][1]) have adopted NASA's mantra of "faster, cheaper, better." Innovative tools at relatively low cost are surfacing throughout the United States, as researchers develop technology that their colleagues elsewhere can adapt and use. [1]:

Tumour necrosis factor-induced death of adult human oligodendrocytes is mediated by apoptosis inducing factor.
It is defined that TNF-induced death of hOLs is non-caspase dependent, as evidenced by lack of generation of caspases 8, 1 and 3 active subunits; lack of cleavage of casing substrates; and lack of hol death inhibition by the general caspase inhibitor, ZVAD.
Sensitization of AIDS-Kaposi's sarcoma cells to Apo-2 ligand-induced apoptosis by actinomycin D.
It is suggested that the possible involvement of Bcl-xL in Act D-induced sensitization of AIDS-KS cells to Apo-2L-mediated apoptosis may be of therapeutic value in the treatment ofAIDS-KS.
