BACKGROUND The Src tyrosine kinase substrate and adaptor protein Tks5 had previously been implicated in the invasive phenotype of normal and transformed cell types via regulation of cytoskeletal structures called podosomes/invadopodia. The role of Src-Tks5 signaling in invasive prostate cancer, however, had not been previously evaluated. METHODS We(More)
The 24-h toxicity of 20 substituted chlorophenols upon Lebistes reticulatus has been determined. The biological results have been tentatively connected with several of the following six parameters: logarithm of the octanol-water partition coefficient (log P); index of molecular connectivity (1 chi v); molecular refraction (RM); perimeter of the efficient(More)
The chemical interaction of levamisole with human serum albumin (HSA) has been investigated using the technique of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Binding to HSA occurs primarily with the imidazolidine and thiazolidine groups of levamisole as it has been demonstrated by selective changes in the relaxation times and the chemical shifts of the(More)
Interactions of tetramisole, imidazo[2,1-b]thiazolic derived or immunomodulatory agents with human serum albumin (HSA) and immunoglobulins G and A has been investigated in vitro using polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and immunoelectrophoresis. The results suggest that only the chemical structure type of tetramisole is able to induce a protein-protein(More)
Comparative studies by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and immunoelectrophoresis showed that DL-2-oxo-3-(2-mercaptoethyl)-5-phenyl-imidazolidine (OMPI), a major metabolite of levamisole in vivo, exerted an inhibitory effect on the polymerization of albumin induced by levamisole action on human serum in vitro. Similar effects were obtained with sulfhydryl(More)
