Being and truth by Thomas Langan( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and German and held by 247 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 demonstrated that essentially all breast cancer cell lines and tumor tissues have defects of varying degrees in the cyclin D1-Rb-p16 regulatory pathway that controls cell cycle progression at the Gl/S boundary. The most common defect in cell lines we observe is the expression or overexpression of cyclin Dl in the presence of Rb, accompanied by a failure to express p16. Expression of moderate amounts of p16 in breast cancer cell lines with this type of defect suppresses the transformed properties of the cells, preventing growth in soft agar and blocking formation of tumors in nude mice, indicating that the fundamental defect in these cell lines appears to be the failure to express p16. The most common defect in breast tumor tissues is the overexpression of cyclin Dl in the presence of both Rb and pl6. The coexpression of Rb and p16 in these tumors suggests that abnormalities in cell cycle control may be minimal. However, in a subset of breast cancer cell lines also coexpressing Rb and p16, we have found that the fundamental defect in cell cycle regulation involves an insensitivity to the inhibitory actions of p16. These findings suggest the possibility that this unusual defect in cell cycle regulatory control may also be present in breast tumors which coexpress Rb and p16

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
