Three mitochondrial enzymes, cytochrome oxidase, succinate dehydrogenase, and monoamine oxidase, and two peroxisomal enzymes, catalase and urate oxidase, were measured spectrophotometrically in the postnuclear supernatant prepared from homogenates of normal mucosa and carcinoma of the human colon. The specific activities, in both normal mucosa and(More)
Experiments were carried out to determine if the difference in rates of cell proliferation between normal and neoplastic cells may be related to altered levels of oxidative enzymes. Assays were performed using homogenates from hepatocellular carcinoma HC-252, a rapidly growing and moderately well-differentiated tumor; from normal liver; and from the liver(More)
Excessive generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in cancer cells is associated with cancer development, but the underlying mechanisms and therapeutic significance remain elusive. In this study, we reported that levels of ROS and p22(phox) expression are greatly increased in human prostate cancer tissues, and knockdown of p22(phox) by specific small(More)
Previous studies reported that 5'-nucleotidase activity was undetectable or at much lower levels in the homogenate of human chronic lymphocytic leukemic (CCL) cells than in normal lymphocytes. In the present study, 5'-nucleotidase specific activity in acute myelocytic leukemia (AML), which varied in a range from undetectable to 1.4 (nmoles/min.mg protein),(More)
5'-Nucleotidase activity in the postnuclear supernatant of normal and SV-40 virus-transformed human embryonic lung, chick embryo, and mouse embryo fibroblasts, WI-38, IMR-90, VA-13, CEF, 3T3, and SV3T3 cells was measured. In IMR-90 and CEF cells, both of which have a limited lifespan in vitro, 5'-nucleotidase activity increased 6- and 20-fold, respectively,(More)
