Mechanisms of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D resistance in tumor cells as they progress from the normal to the malignant phenotype by Cynthia Solomon( )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Human retinoid X receptor alpha (hRXRalpha) plays a critical role in DNA binding and transcriptional activity through its heterodimeric association with several members of the nuclear receptor superfamily, including the vitamin D receptor (VDR). Several cancer cell lines derived from many tissues have been shown to be resistant to the growth inhibitory action of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, (1,25(OH)2D3), the biologically active metabolite of vitamin D3. In the malignant ras-transformed human keratinocyte cell line, HPK1Aras, 10--100 fold higher concentrations of 1,25(OH)2D3 are required than the non-malignant normal human epidermal keratinocytes to achieve comparable inhibition of cell growth. Here we show that in ras-transformed keratinocytes, ser260 of hRXRalpha is phosphorylated through the Ras-Raf-MAP kinase cascade. This phosphorylation event results in the inhibition of vitamin D signaling via VDR/hRXRalpha heterodimers. Strategies to reverse this resistance include the use of the MAP kinase inhibitor, PD098059, and a non-phosphorylatable hRXRalpha mutant, ala260, which completely abolishes RXR phosphorylation and restores the function of both 1,25(OH)2D3 and a specific RXR ligand, LG1069 (4-[1-(5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-3,5,5,8,8-pentamethyl-2-naphtalenyl)ethenyl]-benzoic acid). In addition, we show that a vitamin D analog with low calcemic activity (EB1089) is more potent than 1,25(OH)2D3 in inhibiting cancer cell growth in this system. Targeted therapy with selective analogs such as EB1089, in combination with the inhibition of phosphorylation of the RXR, could play a critical role in the therapeutic strategies of cancer biology. In addition, we also demonstrate that resistance to 1,25(OH)2D 3 can be acquired through genetic alterations in the VDR, implying that both components of the VDR/RXR heterodimer are potential targets for the induction of cellular resistance to 1,25(OH)2D3 and present two distinct mechanisms through which tumour cells can escape the growt" --

Teaching the Computer to Add: An Example of Problem-Solving in an Anthropomorphic Computer Culture. Artificial Intelligence Memo No. 396 by Cynthia Solomon( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This document describes how to teach a computer to add numbers using the logo programing language. The programing project is described in the way a student might develop it. The model of developing the program uses humans as an anthropomorphic model for the computer, and the computer as a model for people. The document has an unorthodox style, as much of it is in the form of a monologue that reflects a programer's mind who is working on a project. The paper concludes with the goals of the project that were attained and contains suggestions for further extension of the investigation. (Mp)
Leading a Child to a Computer Culture. Ai Memo 343 by Cynthia Solomon( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper describes the way in which a child is introduced to logo, which is both a programming language and an environment or a way of thinking about computers and about learning. After a brief description of the devices used by logo, the process of acquainting a student with the system is explained. The strong anthropomorphization of components of the logo system is discussed, with emphasis on the computer controlled mechanical turtles and display turtles used in the system. Also discussed is the importance of having children learning to use logo to think of their projects as research enterprises. The 23 references listed include 11 working papers, memos, and reports on logo. (Lls)

The BBN-LISP system by Daniel G Bobrow( )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report describes in detail the BBN-LISP system. This LISP system has a number of unique features; most notably, it has a small core memory, and utilizes a drum for storage of list structure. The paging techniques described allow utilization of this large, but slow, drum memory with a surprisingly small time penalty. These techniques are applicable to the design of efficient list processing systems embedded in time-sharing systems using paging for memory allocation
