Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

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.
