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.
