    We studied the ability of F9 teratocarcinoma cells to arrest in G1/S and G2/M checkpoints after γ-irradiation. Wild-type p53 protein was rapidly accumulated in F9 cells after γ-irradiation, however, this was followed not by a G1/S arrest but by a short and reversible delay of the cell...

    In this study we investigated the growth inhibitory effects of UCN-01 in several normal and tumor-derived human breast epithelial cells. We found that while normal mammary epithelial cells were very sensitive to UCN-01 with an IC50 of 10 nM, tumor cells displayed little to no inhibition of...

    Focuses on a study that detailed the use of p53 proficient cells and examined expression of G2 arrest proteins to determine the role of Chk1 in p53-dpendent G2 arrest. Major regulatory proteins of G2 arrest; Factor associated with the arrest inhibition; Protein that is thought to play a role in...

    There is growing evidence about the role of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) as cancer stem cells in many sarcomas. Nevertheless, little is still known about the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying MSCs transformation. We aimed at investigating the role of p53 and p21, two important...

  • In vitro CO-induced ROS production impairs cell cycle in SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells. Montalto, Angela; Currò, Monica; Russo, Tiziana; Visalli, Giuseppa; Impellizzeri, Pietro; Antonuccio, Pietro; Arena, Salvatore; Borruto, Francesca; Scalfari, Gianfranco; Ientile, Riccardo; Romeo, Carmelo // Pediatric Surgery International;Jan2013, Vol. 29 Issue 1, p51 

    Purpose: We evaluated in vitro the role of CO-induced oxidative stress on the expression of proteins involved in cell-cycle regulation of neuroblastoma cells. Methods: SH-SY5Y cells were exposed to CO at 15 mmHg pressure (100 %) for 4 h and then moved to normal condition for 24 h. Control cells...

  • p53 and cell cycle independent dysregulation of autophagy in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. Groves, M J; Johnson, C E; James, J; Prescott, A R; Cunningham, J; Haydock, S; Pepper, C; Fegan, C; Pirrie, L; Westwood, N J; Coates, P J; Ganley, I G; Tauro, S // British Journal of Cancer;10/29/2013, Vol. 109 Issue 9, p2434 

    Background:Activation of wild-type p53 with the small molecule sirtuin inhibitor Tenovin-6 (Tnv-6) induces p53-dependent apoptosis in many malignant cells. In contrast, Tnv-6 reduces chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) cell viability with dysregulation of autophagy, without increasing...

  • High-Level Expression of Wild-Type p53 in Melanoma Cells is Frequently Associated with Inactivity in p53 Reporter Gene Assays. Houben, Roland; Hesbacher, Sonja; Schmid, Corinna P.; Kauczok, Claudia S.; Flohr, Ulrike; Haferkamp, Sebastian; Müller, Cornelia S. L.; Schrama, David; Wischhusen, Jörg; Becker, Jürgen C. // PLoS ONE;2011, Vol. 6 Issue 7, p1 

    Background: Inactivation of the p53 pathway that controls cell cycle progression, apoptosis and senescence, has been proposed to occur in virtually all human tumors and p53 is the protein most frequently mutated in human cancer. However, the mutational status of p53 in melanoma is still...

    Psoralens (5-MOP and 8-MOP), a class of naturally occurring compounds, in combination with ultraviolect light are potent modulators of epidermal cell growth and differentiation. For a long time, photo-chemotherapy has been used in the treatment of psoriasis where it can reduce the number of...

    Evidence is accumulating that estradiol (E2) may play a dual role in carcinogenic and anticarcinogenic effects by different metabolic pathways. It has been shown that some metabolites of E2 exert proliferative and others anti-proliferative properties on human cancer cells. In the present study,...
