    Using a model plant Nicotiana benthamiana, we have demonstrated that initial calcium uptake in response to the HR (hypersensitive response)-causing pathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv syringae 61 is followed by net calcium efflux initiated at about 12 h after the bacterial challenge and sustained...

    Cancer cells survive despite violating rules of normal cellular behaviour that ordinarily provoke apoptosis. The blocks in apoptosis that keep cancer cells alive are therefore attractive candidates for targeted therapies. Recent studies have significantly increased our understanding of how...

  • RSR13, an allosteric effector of haemoglobin, and carbogen radiosensitize FSAII and SCCVII tumours in C3H mice. Khandelwa, S.R.; Kavanagh, B.D.; Lin, P.-S.; Truong, Q.T.; Lu, J.; Abraham, D.J.; Schmidt-Ullrich, R.K. // British Journal of Cancer;2/15/99, Vol. 79 Issue 5/6, p814 

    Pre-clinical evaluation has demonstrated that 2-[4-(((3,5-dimethylanilino)carbonyl)methyl)phenoxy]-2-methylpropionic acid (RSR13) acts as an allosteric effector of haemoglobin (Hb). RSR13 binding to Hb results in decreased haemoglobin–oxygen (Hb–O2) affinity, improved tumour...

    P53 is an attractive target in molecular cancer therapeutics because of its critical role in regulating cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. The limitations in the development of p53-based cancer therapeutic strategy include its inefficient transmission through cell membrane of tumor cells and low...

  • Autotaxin is induced by TSA through HDAC3 and HDAC7 inhibition and antagonizes the TSA-induced cell apoptosis. Song Li; Baolu Wang; Yan Xu; Junjie Zhang // Molecular Cancer;2011, Vol. 10 Issue 1, p18 

    Background: Autotaxin (ATX) is a secreted glycoprotein with the lysophospholipase D (lysoPLD) activity to convert lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) into lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), a bioactive lysophospholipid involved in diverse biological actions. ATX is highly expressed in some cancer cells and...
