Identification of further direct target genes of RARα relevant to normal and malignant myelopoiesis has accelerated, using techniques such as subtractive cloning,139,140 differential screening,141 differential display (DD),142,143and representative difference analysis (RDA).144 These studies focused on genes induced 24 hours after ATRA treatment and tended to identify indirect targets of ATRA action. These included the IFN-inducible RIG-G145 and the related RI58 gene,146 RIG-E, encoding a GPI-linked cell surface molecule,147 and Jem1,148 a basic/leucine zipper transcription factor gene. In contrast, using RDA, a calcium/calmodulin kinase was isolated from ATRA-treated murine promyelocyte MPRO cells harboring a dominant negative RARα molecule. This gene was activated within a few hours after ATRA treatment in a cycloheximide-resistant fashion and therefore is a reasonable candidate as a direct target of RARα.149 Another report also using the MPRO cell line isolated, by subtractive hybridization, several genes rapidly induced by ATRA treatment.150 One transcript induced threefold by ATRA treatment was identical to that encoding LAPTM5, a lysosomal protein expressed preferentially in hematopoietic cell lines.151 The LAPTM5 promoter contained RAREs, and an LAPTM5-luciferase reporter gene was inducible by retinoic acid. The importance of this gene in differentiation is unknown. Current efforts towards the identification of ATRA target genes are using microarrays of immobilized cDNAs152,153 or oligonucleotides,154 which can monitor expression of thousands of gene simultaneously.155,156Table 2 summarizes some of the salient points regarding myeloid biology, RARs, and APL.

The growth-suppressive actions of PML were suggested by the finding that NB4 cells selected for expression of exogenous PML harbored mutations in PML, suggesting that the wild-type protein was not tolerated.210,247 Infection of NB4 cells with a retrovirus harboring PML suppressed the ability of the cells to form colonies in soft agar. In addition, conditioned medium from these cells suppressed colony formation of wild-type NB4 cells, suggesting the release of negative growth control factors.210 Furthermore, PML-overexpressing NB4 cells, when injected into nude mice, yielded smaller tumors that appeared with a longer latency than vector-expressing cells.210 Attempts to circumvent the toxic effect of PML led another group to create an episomal transfection system in which it was demonstrated that even low levels of PML were toxic to NB4 cells. Because RARα overexpression was also growth suppressive to these cells, these investigators concluded that, in t(15;17) APL, the reduced dosage of PML and RARα could contribute to uninhibited cell growth.247

In all of these models, the delay in onset of leukemia suggests that a second, as yet uncharacterized, genetic hit is required for neoplastic transformation. Whether the leukemias that do develop in the mice are monoclonal or polyclonal has not yet been determined. A monoclonal origin would be consistent with a model of tumor promotion induced by PML-RARα, potentially by preventing apoptosis and blocking differentiation, followed by a second genetic lesion. Such a multistep pathway was modeled by the introduction of N-ras into the hematopoietic cells derived from mice harboring the PML-RARα fusion expressed from the CD11b promoter.348 As a result, there was a 10- to 100-fold synergistic increase in myeloid colonies. With this proof of principle, we can anticipate experiments in which PML-RARα mice could be crossed with mice expressing activated oncogenes or lacking tumor suppressors. The APL that develops spontaneously in PML-RARα mice could also be screened for secondary mutations required for pathogenesis.

In the case of the t(11;17)(q23;q21) APL variant, the reciprocal transcript encoding RARα-PLZF that yields a protein containing the last seven zinc fingers of PLZF fused to the A-domain of RARα361,362 (Fig 6) is consistently expressed. In contrast, the RARα-PML transcript of t(15;17) APL is absent in a significant number of cases.5 These seven zinc fingers can bind to the artificial PLZF binding site derived from PCR-based site selection as well as a site derived from selection from a human CpG island library.415 RARα-PLZF demonstrates properties that may be critical to the disruption of transcriptional and nuclear regulatory events. Whereas PLZF represses gene transcription through its cognate binding site, RARα-PLZF activates transcription through this site.394 Whereas PLZF is a growth suppressor and inhibits expression of the cyclin A2 gene, RARα-PLZF activates transcription, activates expression of cyclin A2 in an adhesion independent manner in 3T3 cells,406 and enhances cell growth (Yeyati et al, unpublished data). Hence, t(11;17)(q23;q21) may be an ATRA and chemotherapy-resistant disease due to the presence of two oncogenes working through different mechanisms, PLZF-RARα blocks retinoid-mediated activation of genes critical for myeloid differentiation. RARα-PLZF may activate cell cycle regulators such as cyclin A, accelerate cell growth, and block the antiproliferative effects of retinoid treatment. This notion is supported by the finding that mice harboring the RARα-PLZF protein develop a myeloproliferative syndrome. Whether these mice or the progeny of RARα-PLZF/PLZF-RARα crosses will develop leukemia is under study.416

In one of his most controversial statements to date, Ben Affleck did directly blame ex-wife Jennifer Garner for his alcohol abuse. During an interview with Howard Stern, this is what Affleck said: "I'd probably still be drinking. It's part of why I started drinking ... because I was trapped. I was like 'I can't leave 'cause of my kids, but I'm not happy, what do I do?' What I did was drink a bottle of Scotch and fall asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution.

Honoka wonders if she's a bad person. Even though she knows how Hinata loves Yatarou, she wonders why she was given the stuffed toy. She even assumes that the toy was given because Yatarou was too embarassed to give it to Hinata. For a moment, she is happy that Yatarou looked at her for once and gave her the toy instead. However, she realises this is wrong-that it's bad to betray Hinata just because she too loves Yatarou and how she doesn't want to hurt a friend. She admits to sometimes have hated Hinata because how their technically rivals but then she grows uncertain. Through her reflection, she is being told to give up on her friendship-that she should be 'honest with herself' and take Yatarou for herself. Although she denies this reflection from the water, she is told how Hinata 'wanted her to lose' and how cheering her on was a way of covering it up. Honoka convinces herself that it's fine to be with Yatarou-so long as her haboring feelings are stronger than how Hinata has loved him.

There are many jobs that humans would rather leave to robots. The job may be boring, such as domestic cleaning or sports field line marking, or dangerous, such as exploring inside a volcano.[146] Other jobs are physically inaccessible, such as exploring another planet,[147] cleaning the inside of a long pipe, or performing laparoscopic surgery.[148]

Creating your own mini-bar is another fun drinking cruise hack we regularly employ. And for those who want better coffee without paying inflated specialty coffee prices, we show how to be your own barista! Actually, there are plenty of free non-alcoholic drinks to enjoy on a cruise. Yet cruisers looking for booze will find plenty of alcohol hacks to get cheap cruise drinks all throughout this post.

Sure, it may not be quite as good as a barista-made espresso-based drink. But this simple little cruise hack can save coffee drinkers about $35 over the course of a weeklong cruise, while still jazzing up a boring cuppa joe.

If your cruise has a 24-hour ice cream station, you can visit that and get even more creative with your coffee. To make your own caramel latte, jazz up a boring cup of coffee by adding some hot caramel. Heck, get some whip cream and sprinkles on top!

Part of the fun of drinking on a cruise is the social element, hanging out at the numerous bars, lounges, and clubs on these awesome ships. The nightly parties can be a blast. Drunken karaoke sessions are hilarious. Late-night clubs can get interesting.

He began taking drugs such as Speed, Marijuana and LSD, which only resulted in drug addiction. About a month prior to his graduation, King was arrested after binge drinking at a nearby bar and stealing traffic cones. Such an arrest seems certainly innocent; however, this was a clear-cut warning of the more concerning behavior to come. 041b061a72
