We examined the effects of various adenine analogues on the growth and differentiation of human myeloid leukemia HL-60 cells. Some of these analogues inhibit growth and induce nitroblue tetrazolium reducing activity in HL-60 cells. Cytokinins such as kinetin, isopentenyladenine, and...

Mitochondrial dysfunction is a causative and/or exacerbating feature of many pathologies. We discuss below approaches to modulate mitochondrial dysfunction that involve (1) increasing their energetic efficiency by targeting gene expression regulators such as PPAR or AMPK, (2) using antioxidant compounds...
