KRAS mutations are found in 15–25 % of patients with lung adenocarcinoma, and they lead to constitutive activation of KRAS signaling pathway that results in sustained cell proliferation. Currently, there are no direct anti-KRAS therapies available. Therefore, it is rational to target the downstream molecules of KRAS signaling pathway, which are(More)
Histone deacetylases (HDACs) play a major role in the regulation of chromatin structure and gene expression by changing acetylation status of histone and non-histone proteins. MS-275 (entinostat, MS) is a well-known benzamide-based HDACI and Salermide (SAL), a reverse amide compound HDACI, have antiproliferative effects on several human cancer cells. In(More)
Flavopiridol is a cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor that promotes cell cycle arrest. We aimed to examine the anti-proliferative effects of the flavopiridol and oxaliplatin combination on p16INK4A deficient melanoma cells B16F10 and also its apoptotic effects on a subcutaneously injected B16F10 allograft melanoma tumor model. Flavopiridol and(More)
