Tenovin-6 is the most studied member of a family of small molecules with antitumour activity in vivo. Previously, it has been determined that part of the effects of tenovin-6 associate with its ability to inhibit SirT1 and activate p53. However

Oncogene, 40(31), 4967-4979 (2021-06-27)
The inactivation of p53, a tumor suppressor, and the activation of the RAS oncogene are the most frequent genetic alterations in cancer. We have shown that a unique E. coli MazF-MazE toxin-antitoxin (TA) system can be used for selective and

MAT2a is a methionine adenosyltransferase that synthesizes the essential metabolite S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) from methionine and ATP. Tumors bearing the co-deletion of p16 and MTAP genes have been shown to be sensitive to MAT2a inhibition, making it an attractive target for
Huw D Summers et al.
ACS nano, 7(7), 6129-6137 (2013-06-19)
Assessing dose in nanoparticle-cell interactions is inherently difficult due to a complex multiplicity of possible mechanisms and metrics controlling particle uptake. The fundamental unit of nanoparticle dose is the number of particles internalized per cell; we show that this can

Molecular vision, 18, 38-54 (2012-01-20)
Tyrosinase is the rate-limiting enzyme responsible for melanin biosynthesis in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) of the eye. Melanin has an important role in retinal development, function, and protection against light-induced oxidative stress, and melanin levels are associated with age-related
Takashi Hosono et al.
Carcinogenesis, 29(7), 1400-1406 (2008-06-03)
Alk(en)yl trisulfides (R-SSS-R') are organosulfur compounds produced by crushed garlic and other Allium vegetables. We found that these compounds exhibit potent anticancer effects through the reaction with microtubules, causing cell cycle arrest. Nine alk(en)yl trisulfides including dimethyl trisulfide, diethyl trisulfide
Maximilian Hörner et al.
Science advances, 7(25) (2021-06-18)
Methodologies for the controlled delivery of genetic information into target cells are of utmost importance for genetic engineering in both fundamental and applied research. However, available methods for efficient gene transfer into user-selected or even single cells suffer from low
Roman A Perez et al.
Journal of tissue engineering, 5, 2041731414543965-2041731414543965 (2014-11-11)
Developing appropriate cell culturing techniques to populate scaffolds has become a great challenge in tissue engineering. This work describes the use of spinner flask dynamic cell cultures to populate hydroxyapatite microcarriers for bone tissue engineering. The microcarriers were obtained through
Mika Pietilä et al.
Nature communications, 10(1), 2340-2340 (2019-05-30)
The human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) is an oncogene targeted by several kinase inhibitors and therapeutic antibodies. While the endosomal trafficking of many other receptor tyrosine kinases is known to regulate their oncogenic signalling, the prevailing view on
Xiang-Ping Liu et al.
Journal of experimental & clinical cancer research : CR, 28, 52-52 (2009-04-21)
RhoA and RhoC are deregulated by over expression in many human tumors, including colorectal cancer. Some reports show that they play a pivotal role in the carcinogenesis, tumor development and infiltration metastasis. In this study, for the first time we
Alexis Rossignol et al.
mAbs, 9(3), 521-535 (2017-03-11)
Standardized and biologically relevant potency assays are required by the regulatory authorities for the characterization and quality control of therapeutic antibodies. As critical mechanisms of action (MoA) of antibodies, the antibody-dependent cell-meditated cytotoxicity (ADCC) and complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC) must be
Margherita Sisto et al.
Archivum immunologiae et therapiae experimentalis, 68(5), 27-27 (2020-09-12)
To determine the role of IL-6 in bringing about the EMT, in SGEC obtained from healthy subjects. Human salivary gland (SGs) epithelial cells (SGEC) from primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) are able to synthesize interleukin (IL)-6, which is a critical mediator
Nina M Muñoz et al.
Growth factors (Chur, Switzerland), 26(5), 254-262 (2008-07-25)
Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) is a pluripotent cytokine that can have both tumor suppressing and tumor promoting effects on epithelial cells. It is unclear what determines when TGF-beta and its signaling pathway act predominantly as a tumor suppressor pathway or
Seungman Park et al.
Scientific reports, 9(1), 13286-13286 (2019-09-19)
We present a high-throughput microfluidics technique facilitating in situ measurements of cell mechanics parameters at the dorsal side of the cell, including molecular binding strengths, local traction forces, and viscoelastic properties. By adjusting the flow rate, the force magnitude exerted

Scientific reports, 4, 5433-5433 (2014-06-26)
No definitive therapy exists to treat human metastatic tumors. We reported previously that down-regulation of Lin-7C is essential for metastasis of human squamous cell carcinomas (hSCCs). In this study, we investigated the chemical restoration of Lin-7C expression and demonstrated its

In this study, we constructed multifunctional liposomes with preferentially mitochondria-targeted feature and gold nanoparticles-assisted synergistic photodynamic therapy. We systemically investigated the in vitro X-ray triggered PDT effect of these liposomes on HCT 116 cells including the levels of singlet oxygen
