Reduced accumulation of cisplatin is the most consistent feature seen in cisplatin-resistant (CP-r) cells that are cross-resistant to other cytotoxic compounds, such as methotrexate. In this report, defective uptake of a broad range of compounds, including [(14)C]-carboplatin, [(3)H]MTX, [(3)H]folic acid (FA), [(125)I]epidermal growth factor, (59)Fe,(More)
Neuritogenesis is a critical early step in the development and maturation of neurons and neuronal circuits. While extracellular directional cues are known to specify the site and orientation of nascent neurite formation in vivo, little is known about the genetic pathways that block inappropriate neurite emergence in order to maintain proper neuronal(More)
We isolated human KB adenocarcinoma cisplatin-resistant (CP-r) cell lines with multidrug-resistance phenotypes because of reduced accumulation of cisplatin and other cytotoxic compounds such as methotrexate and heavy metals. The uptake of horseradish peroxidase (HRPO) and Texas Red dextran was decreased several-fold in KB-CP-r cells, indicating a general(More)
The effects of acetylation on gene expression are complex, with changes in chromatin accessibility intermingled with direct effects on transcriptional regulators. For the nuclear receptors, both positive and negative effects of acetylation on specific gene transcription have been observed. We report that p300 and steroid receptor coactivator 1 interact(More)
Peptide:N-glycanases (PNGases) are cytoplasmic de-N-glycosylation enzymes that have been shown in cultured cells to facilitate the degradation of misfolded glycoproteins during endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation and in the processing of major histocompatibility complex class I antigens for proper cell-surface presentation. The gene encoding PNGase(More)
This paper joins the debate of why Chinese manufacturing has experienced a significant catch-up. We estimate the cost and non-cost competitiveness of China and other 12 countries‟ manufacturing between 1970-2008 in three steps: firstly providing an overview of the method to analyzing competitiveness, secondly identifying factors that affect it, at last(More)
