Description

Packaging

100, 250 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Carboplatin is a platinum-based antineoplastic drug that damages DNA by forming intrastrand cross-links with neighboring guanine residues. Tumors acquire resistance to these drugs through the loss of DNA-mismatch repair (MMR) activity and the resultant decrease in the induction of programmed cell death.

DNA损伤与修复

突变与癌症的发生均包含细胞DNA损伤过程。人类细胞中的DNA每天都会由于外部(外源)和内部(内源)的代谢进程而遭受成千上百次损伤。细胞基因组的改变可能导致DNA转录过程出现错误,进而通过翻译过程影响到信号转导和细胞功能必需的蛋白质。如果有丝分裂之前这些基因组突变尚未完成修复,则还会进一步遗传给子代细胞。一旦细胞丧失了有效修复DNA损伤的能力,就可能发生三种反应:细胞衰老、细胞凋亡和细胞癌变(参见...
