Biochem/physiol Actions

Sulindac sulfide is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory compound with a preference for COX-1; it is an inhibitor of Ras activation of Raf-1. It impairs nucleotide exchange on Ras by CDC25 and accelerates Ras hydrolysis of GTP by p120GAP. It is an active metabolite of sulindac. It is also shown to inhibit growth and induce apoptosis in human prostate cancer cells through a COX-1 and COX-2 independent mechanism. Sulindac sulfide is an analgesic that has antiproliferative and apoptotic effects. It inhibits the expression and activity of cyclooxygenase-2 in human colon cancer cells and reduces tumor burden in adenomatous polyposis patients.

Many reports indicate that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have antineoplastic effects, but the precise molecular mechanism(s) responsible are unclear. We evaluated the effect of cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitors (NSAIDs) on human colon carcinoma cells (HCA-7) and identified several genes that are

We examined the activity of two metabolites of sulindac (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug), sulindac sulfide and sulindac sulfone (exisulind, Prevatec), and a novel highly potent analog of exisulind (CP248) on a series of human prostate epithelial cell lines. Marked growth

The non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug sulindac is used in cancer prevention and therapy, but the molecular aspects of its anti-tumor effect remain unresolved. In vivo the prodrug sulindac, is converted into the metabolite sulindac sulfide. We found that sulindac sulfide strongly

γ-Secretase is a multisubunit membrane protein complex containing presenilin (PS1) as a catalytic subunit. Familial Alzheimer disease (FAD) mutations within PS1 were analyzed in yeast cells artificially expressing membrane-bound substrate, amyloid precursor protein, or Notch fused to Gal4 transcriptional activator.

Prostaglandins (PGs) are powerful lipid mediators in many physiological and pathophysiological responses. They are produced by oxidation of arachidonic acid (AA) by cyclooxygenases (COX-1 and COX-2) followed by metabolism of endoperoxide intermediates by terminal PG synthases. PG biosynthesis is inhibited
