Being and truth by Thomas Langan( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and German and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Balancing the realities of subjectivism with the demands of objective form and structure, giving both the relatively permanent and the ephemeral their due, is at every moment delicate. The "common sense" at the core of each person's "natural faith" must serve as a guide - yet neither of these is a simple notion. Langan unabashedly calls on his own wide-ranging experience of the lived world to illustrate this dialectic. Students and scholars of political philosophy, intellectual history, and theology will benefit from this rich and insightful text, which integrates historicity without undermining the possibility of attaining lasting truth

Role of Changes in the Expression of Cyclins and Retinoblastoma Protein in the Development of Breast Cancer( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our studies, together with work carried out in other laboratories, have indicated that defects in the Rb-Cyclin D 1-p 16 cell cycle regulatory system are present in the vast majority of breast cancer cells. In previous years we have focused on characterizing these defects and on determining the mechanisms responsible for causing them. In the current year we have turned our efforts towards demonstrating the contribution of these defects to the tumorigenic properties of breast cancer cells, in order to provide potential targets for therapy. In particular, we have focused on the effects of restoring the expression of the tumor suppressor p16 in breast cancer cells, using constructs in which p16 expression in under control of the inducible Tet promoter. After demonstrating the feasibility of this approach in breast cancer cells in transiently transfected cells, we have now produced stably transfected ceU lines in order to test effects of p16 expression on growth in soft agar and in formation of tumors in nude mice. Currently we have demonstrated that MCF-7 breast cancer cells stably transformed with constructs expressing p16 are impaired or have lost the ability to grow in soft agar, indicating that defects in p16 expression may make a critical contribution to tumorigenicity. However, additional controls are required to establish unequivocally that loss of growth of these cells in soft agar is in fact due to restoration of p16 expression

Chemotherapy of Late Stage Breast Cancer Targeted Towards Cell Cycle Regulatory Components( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We have investigated two drugs which target cell cycle regulatory components as potential cancer chemotherapeutic agents for use in late stage breast cancer. The first, 5,6-dihydro-5-azacytidine (DHAC), a DNA methylation inhibitor, has been tested for its potential to reduce unregulated growth in cultured breast cancer cell lines which fail to express the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor protein p16 due to p16 gene methylation. DHAC was found to significantly affect the growth and cell cycle distribution of cultured T47-D breast cancer cells. However, this was not accompanied by detectable expression of p16 protein in these cells. We are currently employing a related methylation inhibitor, 5-aza-2 deoxycytidine, in attempts to optimize conditions for promotion of detectable p16 expression, since this has the potential to produce greater reductions in cell growth as well as in tumorigenic properties. The second drug studied, bryostatin-1, promotes expression of another type of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor, p21
