Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Activation of the noradrenaline transporter gene using the radiation-inducible WAF1-1 promoter sensitizes tumour cells to [I-131] MIBG targeted radiotherapy

McCluskey, A. G. and Mairs, R. J. and Robson, T. and Hirst, D. G. and Boyd, M. (2012) Activation of the noradrenaline transporter gene using the radiation-inducible WAF1-1 promoter sensitizes tumour cells to [I-131] MIBG targeted radiotherapy. Mutagenesis, 27 (1). p. 131. ISSN 0267-8357

Abstract

Radiotherapy given in combination with gene transfer is a promising approach for the treatment of cancer. However, progress in this field depends upon achieving the selective expression of therapeutic transgenes in tumours. Therefore, radiation-inducible gene promoters have attracted interest because they may enable temporal and spatial gene activation.
