General description

Modification of the original MEM formulation. Earle′s salts have been replaced with Hanks′ salts. Since the bicarbonate concentration is substantially lower, this medium has a substantially reduced buffering capacity.

Reconstitution

Supplement with 0.292 g/L L-glutamine.

Metabolic pathways of cancer cells depend on the concentrations of nutrients in their micro-environment as well as on the cell-to-cell interactions. Here we examined the effects of glucose, pyruvate and glutamine on the sensitivity of MDA-MB-231 cells to metabolic drug metformin...

The signaling cascade initiated in response to DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) has been extensively investigated in interphase cells. Here, we show that mitotic cells treated with DSB-inducing agents activate a "primary" DNA damage response (DDR) comprised of early signaling events...

Through negative regulation of gene expression, microRNAs (miRNAs) can function as oncosuppressors in cancers, and can themselves show altered expression in various tumor types. Here, we have investigated medulloblastoma tumors (MBs), which arise from an early impairment of developmental processes...
