    The article discusses research on the use of MET growth factor-receptor protein for controlling tumors resistant to radiation therapy. It references a study by Carla Boccaccio and colleagues in the April 4, 2011 issue of the "Journal of the National Cancer Institute." The gene encoding MET is...

    Although stem cells succumbing to reproductive death are assumed to be the single relevant targets in radiation tissue damage, recent studies showed intestinal stem cell damage is conditionally linked to crypt endothelial apoptosis, defining a two-target model. Here we report that when mouse...

    Ataxia telangictasia mutated (ATM) is involved in DNA repair pathway and cell-cycle checkpoints. ATM alterations were found in medulloblastomas, gliomas, but not in astrocytoma. The polymorphism D1853N was reported in healthy individuals and medulloblastomas. We could observe this polymorphism,...

    The article assesses the potential of respiratory gating in improving radiation therapy on cancer patients. Topics discussed include the goal of respiratory gating is to enable further normal tissue sparing as the approach is done through 4-dimension computed tomography imaging, devices used for...

    Ataxia-telangiectasia (AT) is a complex, autosomal recessive disorder characterized by cerebellar ataxia, believed to result from progressive neurodegeneration, and telangiectasia, dilation of blood vessels within the eyes and parts of the facial region. AT patients suffer from recurrent...

    Shows that stem cells in the intestine seem to have a threshold at which they die as a result of radiation exposure. Variations in the amount of radiation required to kill a specified fraction of cells which depend on whether certain molecules are present, including the DNA repair protein ataxia...

    Telomere shortening in normal human cells causes replicative senescence, a p53-dependent growth arrest state, which is thought to represent an innate defence against tumour progression. However, although it has been postulated that critical telomere loss generates a ‘DNA damage’...

    The ataxia telangiectasia-mutated (ATM) gene has been implicated as an early barrier to the growth and progression of incipient solid tumors. Here, we show that germ-line nullizygosity for the mouse Atm gene significantly increases the proliferative index, net growth rate and multiplicity of...

  • The regulation of CHK2 in human cancer. Craig, Ashley L; Hupp, Ted R // Oncogene;11/4/2004, Vol. 23 Issue 52, p8411 

    Exceptional progress has been made in the past two decades in mapping oncogenes and tumour suppressors, defining a function for these master switches, and identifying novel anti-cancer drug targets. The p53 tumour suppressor is a central component of a DNA-damage-inducible pathway controlled by...
