[Response to Stress]

Description: Photographs of the 2011-2012 artist's book competition winner "Response to Stress" created by Catherine Snapp Lavoie. The books contains no text. It is an accordion-fold book with five panels of double card stock joined together with one piece of cloth running in between the two layers of the panels. The verso and recto of each panel features collages in pastel earth tone colors. Pieces of crochet thread are applied to both recto and verso of the three panels. One panel has thread on the verso, the remaining on the recto only. The book is housed in a clam shell box that is covered in two-tone letterpress paper. The first image is the book opened up showing the pattern on the panels that are splashes of tan/yellow colors, stretched out in front of the case with a splotch of tan over it. Image 2, the stretched out panels and case seen from the top. Image 3, the open panels of the book are seen from the front, the yellow/tan splotches more visible with thread over it and propped on top the box.

Regulation of Autophagy by Kinases

Description: This review focuses on the regulation of autophagy by several kinases with particular emphasis on serine/threonine protein kinases such as mTOR, AMP-activated kinase, Akt, mitogen-activated protein kinase (ERK, p38 and JNK) and protein kinase C that are often deregulated in cancer and are important therapeutic targets.

Structural Consideration in Designing Organotin Polyethers to Arrest the Growth of Breast Cancer Cells In Vitro

Description: The article looks at antitumor activity using a matched pair of cell lines MDA-MB-231 cells that are estrogen-independent, estrogen receptor negative and MCF-7 cells, a cell line that is estrogen receptor (ER) positive. Those polyethers that contained a O-phenyl unit were able to significantly inhibit the non-estrogen sensitive cell line but were much less effective against the estrogen sensitive cell line; that is, the human breast cancer cell line MDA-MB-231 showed better test results for polymers derived from diols containing the O-phenyl moiety than the breast cancer cell line MCF-7, a well-characterized estrogen receptor positive control cell line.

Antiviral Activity of Metal-Containing Polymers—Organotin and Cisplatin-Like Polymers

Description: This article examines the use of metal-containing polymers as a novel class of antivirals. Polymers containing platinum and to a lesser extent tin, have repeatedly demonstrated antitumor activity in vitro and in vivo against a variety of cell and tumor types. The mechanisms responsible for the antitumor activity include inducing a delay in cell proliferation and sister chromatid exchanges blocking tumor growth.
