DNA Repair | Year: 2013
The nucleoside analog ganciclovir (GCV) elicits cytotoxicity in tumor cells via a novel mechanism in which drug incorporation into DNA produces minimal disruption of replication, but numerous DNA double strand breaks occur during the second S-phase after drug exposure. We propose that homologous recombination (HR), a major repair pathway for DNA double strand breaks, can prevent GCV-induced DNA damage, and that inhibition of HR will enhance cytotoxicity with GCV. Survival after GCV treatment in cells expressing a herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase was strongly dependent on HR (>14-fold decrease in IC50 in HR-deficient vs. HR-proficient CHO cells). In a homologous recombination reporter assay, the histone deacetylase inhibitor, suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA; vorinostat), decreased HR repair events up to 85%. SAHA plus GCV produced synergistic cytotoxicity in U251tk human glioblastoma cells. Elucidation of the synergistic mechanism demonstrated that SAHA produced a concentration-dependent decrease in the HR proteins Rad51 and CtIP. GCV alone produced numerous Rad51 foci, demonstrating activation of HR. However, the addition of SAHA blocked GCV-induced Rad51 foci formation completely and increased γH2AX, a marker of DNA double strand breaks. SAHA plus GCV also produced synergistic cytotoxicity in HR-proficient CHO cells, but the combination was antagonistic or additive in HR-deficient CHO cells. Collectively, these data demonstrate that HR promotes survival with GCV and compromise of HR by SAHA results in synergistic cytotoxicity, revealing a new mechanism for enhancing anticancer activity with GCV. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

At 7T MR imaging, T2*-weighted gradient echo has been shown to provide high-resolution anatomic images of gray matter lesions. However, few studies have verified T2*WI lesions histopathologically or compared them with more standard techniques at ultra-high-field strength. This study aimed to determine the sensitivity of T2WI and T2*WI sequences for detecting cortical GM lesions in MS.At 7T, 2D multiecho spin-echo T2WI and 3D gradient-echo T2*WI were acquired from 27 formalin-fixed coronal hemispheric brain sections of 15 patients and 4 healthy controls. Proteolipid-stained tissue sections (8 m) were matched to the corresponding MR images, and lesions were manually scored on both MR imaging sequences (blinded to histopathology) and tissue sections (blinded to MR imaging). The sensitivity of MR imaging sequences for GM lesion types and white matter lesions was calculated. An unblinded retrospective scoring was also performed.If all cortical GM lesions were taken into account, the T2WI sequence detected slightly more lesions than the T2*WI sequence: 28% and 16%, respectively (P = .054). This difference disappeared when only intracortical lesions were considered. When histopathologic information (type, location) was revealed to the reader, the sensitivity went up to 84% (T2WI) and 85% (T2*WI) (not significant). Furthermore, the false-positive rate was 8.6% for the T2WI and 10.5% for the T2*WI sequence.There is no strong advantage of the T2*WI sequence compared with a conventional T2WI sequence in the detection of cortical lesions at 7T. Retrospectively, a high percentage of lesions could be detected with both sequences. However, many lesions are still missed prospectively. This could possibly be minimized with better a priori observer training.

In this paper, we present novel constructions of matrices with the restricted isometry property (RIP) that support fast matrix-vector multiplication. Our guarantees are the best known, and can also be used to obtain the best known guarantees for fast Johnson Lindenstrauss transforms. In compressed sensing, the restricted isometry property is a sufficient condition for the efficient reconstruction of a nearly k-sparse vector x ∈ C d from m linear measurements Φx. It is desirable for to to be small, and further it is desirable for Φ to support fast matrix- vector multiplication. Among other applications, fast multiplication improves the runtime of iterative recovery algorithms which repeatedly multiply by Φ or Φ*. The main contribution of this work is a novel randomized construction of RIP matrices Φ ∈ Cm×d, preserving the ℓ2 norms of all k-sparse vectors with distortion 1 + ε, where the matrix-vector multiply Φx can be computed in nearly linear time. The number of rows m is on the order of ε-2klog d log2(k log d), an improvement on previous analyses by a logarithmic factor. Our construction, together with a connection between RIP matrices and the Johnson-Lindenstrauss lemma in [Krahmer-Ward, SIAM. J. Math. Anal. 2011], also implies fast Johnson-Lindenstrauss embeddings with asymptotically fewer rows than previously known. Our construction is actually a recipe for improving any existing family of RIP matrices. Briefly, we apply an appropriate sparse hash matrix with sign flips to any suitable family of RIP matrices. We show that the embedding properties of the original family are maintained, while at the same time improving the number of rows. The main tool in our analysis is a recent bound for the supremum of certain types of Rademacher chaos processes in [Krahmer-Mendelson- Rauhut, Comm. Pure Appl. Math, to appear].
