Epigenetic mechanisms of drug resistance: drug-induced DNA hypermethylation and drug resistance.
(East Carolina University, 1993-04-01)
In a model system employing Chinese hamster V-79 cells, the DNA synthesis inhibitor 3'-azido-3'- deoxythymidine (BW A509U, AZT) was shown to induce genome-wide DNA hypermethylation, low-frequency silencing of thymidine ...
Genetic and biochemical analysis of a novel Ambler class A β-Lactamase responsible for cefoxitin resistance in Bacteroides species.
(East Carolina University, 1993-05)
A clinical isolate of Bacteroides vulgatus was resistant to tetracycline, clindamycin, ampicillin, cephaloridine, cefoxitin, and other 13-lactam antibiotics except imipenem. 13-Lactam resistance was mediated by a ...
Autocrine production of extracellular catalase prevents apoptosis of the human CEM T-cell line in serum-free medium.
(East Carolina University, 1993-05-15)
CCRF-CEM is a human T-cell line originally isolated from a child with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. At cell densities > 2 x 10 cells per ml, CEM cells grow in serum-free medium, but at lower cell densities the cultures ...
Neurogenic inflammation and sensitivity to environmental chemicals.
(East Carolina University, 1993-08)
Neurogenic inflammation as a pathway distinct from antigen-driven, immune-mediated inflammation may play a pivotal role in understanding a broad class of environmental health problems resulting from chemical exposures. ...
