Recent studies on the control of specific metabolic pathways in bacteria have documented the existence of entirely RNA-based mechanisms for controlling gene expression. These mechanisms involve the modulation of translation, transcription termination or RNA self-cleavage through the direct interaction of...

The ability to control expression of a specific gene is a prerequisite to understand the function of essential genes. Many gene regulation systems operate on the transcriptional level by employing heterologous cis- and trans-acting elements. Recently, novel approaches employing autocatalytic...

Toyocamycin and some analogues have shown potent antitumor activities; however, none of them could be used clinically primarily owing to their cytotoxicity to normal human cells. In order to overcome the weakness of these nucleoside analogues, substitution of a variety...

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the mechanisms involved in the antiproliferative and apoptotic effects of MCS-C2, a novel analog of the pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine nucleoside toyocamycin and sangivamycin, in human prostate cancer LNCaP cells. MCS-C2, a selective inhibitor...
