Resources:

Biological Specimens

  • Blood samples ( Biological Specimen )

    "from consented breast or colon cancer patients; and subjects without cancer"

  • Bone marrow samples ( Biological Specimen )

    "from consented breast cancer patients and subjects without cancer"

  • Breast tissue microarray ( Biological Specimen )

Human Studies

Instruments

  • AB 2720 thermal cycler ( Thermal cycler )

  • Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer ( Microfluidics platform )

    "The Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer is a microfluidics-based platform for sizing, quantification and quality control of DNA, RNA, proteins and cells. Results are delivered within 30-40 minutes in automated,
    high quality digital data."

  • Beckman-Coulter DU 800 spectrophotometer ( Spectrophotometer )

  • Biorad ChemiDoc ( Gel imaging system )

    "The ChemiDoc™ XRS+ system is based on CCD high-resolution, high-sensitivity detection technology and modular options to accommodate a wide range of samples and support multiple detection methods including fluorescence, colorimetry, densitometry, chemiluminescence, and chemifluorescence. The system is controlled by Image Lab™ software to optimize imager performance for fast, integrated, and automated image capture and analysis of various samples.

    The system accommodates a wide array of samples, from large handcast polyacrylamide gels to small ReadyAgarose™ gels and various blots. The system is an ideal accompaniment to PCR, purification, and electrophoresis systems, enabling image analysis and documentation of restriction digests, amplified nucleic acids, genetic fingerprinting, RFLPs, and protein purification and characterization."

  • Hitachi F2000 fluorescence spectrophotometer ( Fluorescence spectrometer )

  • Leica DMIR B inverted microscope ( Inverted microscope )

  • Roche Cobas Faras chemistry analyzer ( Chemistry analyzer )

  • Zeiss Axiophot inverted microscope ( Inverted microscope )

Organisms and Viruses

Reagents

  • BS-C-1 ( Cell line )

    "African green monkey kidney cell line"

  • Human primary breast cancer cell lines ( Tumor-derived cell line )

    127 cell lines established from breast cancer or non-cancer tissues from consented African American and Latina women

  • MCF7/Akt1-AA ( Tumor-derived cell line )

    Human breast adenocarcinoma cell line transfected with
    myristoylated Akt1

  • SV-40 immortalized primary breast cell lines ( Tumor-derived cell line )

    21 cell lines established from breast cancer or non-cancer tissues from consented African American and latina women
