Jius - Retro Collection 04 :) ((FULL))
This title was originally announced for Nintendo's hybrid system last year. It's described as a "blast from the past" and comes packed with the retro NES and Game Boy hits Bill & Ted's Excellent Video Game Adventure and Bill & Ted's Excellent Portable Adventure.
Jius - Retro Collection 04 :)
There are so many terrible, zero effort, rip-off and/or mobile-style games on the e-shop, seeing some legitimate (licensed!) retro console games made available without needing to pay a subscription always makes me happy, regardless of the worthiness of the titles themselves.
Thanks to all the comments mentioning that the Game Boy game is actually good, especially @Krambo42 who even linked the Nintendo Life review for it, I'll eventually get (probably on sale) this collection!
Nobody liked these games then and they did poorly. What's with the trend of looking for crappy games to rerelease, while ignoring the ones people liked and actually played? What's next, a Color Dreams collection?
The Julius Shulman Photography Archive documents Shulman's career as an architectural photographer from 1935 to 2009. The material primarily documents Southern California modern architecture, including the Case Study Houses. The collection comprises 1231 boxes and 8 oversize flat files, containing more than 260,000 negatives, vintage and modern prints, transparencies, contact prints, color slides, in addition to clippings, papers and indices. The material was generated and collected by Shulman.
This collection includes velvet platform sandals, leather ankle boots, crystal sandals, and leather pumps. Each shoe type has a variety of swatches and colors that are sure to make your Sims look stylish.
Everything is bigger in Texas, including ANTIQUES ROADSHOW appraisals such as Julius Cohen yellow diamond earrings, a 1928 Gibson Granada banjo, and a collection of original comic art dating to around 1937. Can you guess which is $105,000-$140,000?
Modern recombinant DNA technology has led to the development of different viral and nonviral vector systems to facilitate the delivery of specific genes of interest into target cell populations. More than 2100 patients are currently enrolled in >270 clinical Phase I and II studies (1, 2) to assess the clinical safety and efficiency of different modes of gene delivery. To date, most patients enrolled carry malignancies (68%), the most commonly used vectors are retroviral in origin (56%), and the transgenes in most protocols are reporter genes such as lacZ and neoR, immune-enhancing genes such as HLA B7 and interleukin 2, and the prodrug activating gene, HSV-1-tk.3 Retrovirus-mediated HSV-1-tk suicide gene therapy was successful in experimental brain tumor models (3). Clinical studies revealed that the HSV-1-tk/ganciclovir approach as an adjuvant to the surgical resection of recurrent high-grade brain tumors can be performed safely, although clinical responses were observed in only a few patients with very small brain tumors (4, 5). The lack of therapeutic efficiency of this replication-deficient retrovirus vector system in clinical settings may be attributable to: (a) inability to distribute vector-producer cells throughout the tumor; (b) vector-producer cell instability; (c) low transduction efficiency of retrovirions; and (d) tumor heterogeneity. Therefore, replication-competent oncolytic vectors in combination with new or improved prodrug-suicide gene systems are being evaluated as a part of a multimodal approach in current research (6, 7, 8, 9, 10).
The purpose of this study was to determine whether a recently developed radiotracer method for the assessment of viral TK activity, used previously to monitor retroviral and adenoviral vector-mediated transduction of the HSV-1-tk gene (39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47), could also be used to monitor the replication and spread of a replication-conditional HSV-1 vector in tumor cells. That is, can the HSV-1-tk gene be used as a marker/reporter gene to monitor the kinetics of hrR3 and MGH-1 replication and spread in infected tumor cells? These studies are the first assessments of feasibility for imaging replication-conditional HSV-1 vectors using a radiotracer assay. Monitoring the distribution of the viral vector and knowledge of the location, magnitude, and duration of transgene expression is highly desirable and could have a critical impact on the clinical application, management, and assessment of patients undergoing gene therapy. Potential clinical applications include the ability to monitor the location, spread, and persistence of the viral vector by noninvasive imaging of HSV-1-tk gene expression.
FIAU and TdR uptake in hrR3-infected and in retrovirally transduced rat 9L gliosarcoma cells (9LTK+ as positive control). A, the time-dependent accumulation of FIAU and TdR in 9L cells 19 h after hrR3 infection (MOI, 1.5). The rate of tracer accumulation (Ki) can be determined from the slope of the plots. B, the relationship between FIAU and TdR accumulation measured in A. C, the FIAU-TdR accumulation relationship in retrovirally transduced 9LTK+ cells. The slope of the plots in B and C yield the FIAU:TdR accumulation ratio, which normalizes FIAU accumulation to a measure of endogenous TK activity and which has been demonstrated to be a measure of viral TK activity (44). 041b061a72
