The George S. Bailey Papers document research conducted by Bailey and several research faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers working under his direciton on dietary cancer prevention agents. The research focussed on the mechanisms whereby chlorophylls (specifically chlorophyliin) and indoles inhibit the carcinogens Aflatoxin B1 and Dibenzo(a,1,)pyrene (DBP) in trout. Research with zebrafish is also reflected in the records.
The Papers include research and laboratory notebooks, correspondence, drafts of articles, manuals, photographs, reference materials, research data, and theses. The research and laboratory notebooks include research data, laboratory procedures (such as PCR), and reference materials. The research data include sequenced gels containing DNA information. The photographs consist of color slides of trout specimens, chlorphyll, charts and graphs of research data, and researchers at work in the laboratory.
Graduate students and researchers whose work comprise a substantial component of the papers include Vibeke Breinholt, R.H. Dashwood, Patricia M. Loveland, Patricia O'Neal-Tragen, Ashok P. Reddy, and Lijing You. Aflatoxin research conducted prior to Bailey's arrival at OSU in 1979 is available in the research notebooks of Patricia Loveland, Norman E. Pawlowski, and David Jones.
An addition to the Bailey Papers (Accession 2011:070) consists of materials reflecting research conducted by Bailey and several faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers working under his direction on dietary cancer prevention agents. Made up of notebooks and files containing research data, correspondence, and protocols for conducting experiments, these materials document various projects examining the mechanisms by which chlorophylls (specifically chlorophyliin) and indoles inhibit the carcinogens Aflatoxin B1 and Dibenzo(a,1,)pyrene (DBP) in trout. Reference materials found in this accession are primarily made up of photocopied articles on studies relating to chlorophyll, anti-cancer foods, indole-3-carbinol, and ellagic acid. Also found in this transfer is a notebook of class assignments, outlines, and notes reflecting the course: "Techniques in Molecular and Cellular Biology" (MCB 524). Other than Bailey, researchers represented in these records include: Tammie McQuistan, Kate Matthews, Ashok Reddy, Margaret Pratt, Ulrich Harttig, Mike Simonich, and Cliff Pereira.
