The inhibition of the 26S proteasome evokes endoplasmic reticulum stress, which has been shown to be implicated in the antitumoral effects of proteasome inhibitors. The cellular and molecular effects of the proteasome inhibitor—bortezomib—on human colon cancer cells are as yet poorly characterized. Bortezomib selectively induces apoptosis in some cancer(More)
Histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors are now intensively investigated as potential cytostatic agents in many malignancies. Here, we provide novel information concerning the influence of belinostat (Bel), a hydroxamate-based pan-HDAC inhibitor, on glioblastoma LN-229 and LN-18 cells. We found that LN-229 cells stimulated with 2 μmol/L of Bel for 48 h(More)
Glucose deprivation is a factor evoking endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and induction of expression of an oxygen-regulated protein of 150 kDa (ORP150). We studied the effect of inducible overexpression of ORP150 on senescence and apoptosis of human breast carcinoma cells (MCF7) and human skin fibroblasts. We found an inhibitory effect of ORP150 on(More)
Cancer cells have developed a number of adaptation mechanisms involving the signal activation of the transduction pathways, which promotes the progression and metastasis. Our results showed that the percentage of apoptotic MCF-7 cells incubated in the low glucose medium for 48 h was lower in comparison to those cultured in the high glucose medium, despite(More)
BACKGROUND Disturbances in the function of renal proximal tubules increase the activity of several enzymes in urine. Among them is fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (FBP-1), the key enzyme of gluconeogenesis normally present in the renal convoluted, and to smaller degree, proximal renal tubular cells cytosol. FBP-1 activity in urine and serum was used for(More)
Lysosomal exoglycosidases: N-acetyl-β-D-hexosaminidase (HEX), β-D-galactosidase (GAL), α-L-fucosidase (FUC) and α-D-mannosidase (MAN) modify oligosaccharide chains of glycoconjugates in endoplasmatic reticulum and/or Golgi apparatus and degrade them in lysosomes. In acid environment of lysosome, exoglycosidases degrade oligosaccharide chains of(More)
We evaluated the possibility of using the urinary concentrations of tryptophan metabolites such as kynurenine (KYN) and kynurenic acid (KYNA) for monitoring cadmium (Cd) exposure and detecting early effects of its action in the kidney. For this purpose, we analyzed correlations between urinary excretion of both metabolites, Cd concentration and the activity(More)
