New bisoxynaphthalimidopolyamines (BNIPOPut, BNIPOSpd and BNIPOSpm) were synthesized. Their cytotoxic properties were evaluated against breast cancer MCF 7 cells and compared with bisnaphthalimidopolyamines BNIPSpd and BNIPSpm. Among the bisoxynaphthalimido polyamines, BNIPOSpm and BNIPOSpd exhibited cytotoxic activity with an IC50 f 29.55 and 27.22 microM,(More)
A number of polyamine derivatives have demonstrated potential as therapeutic agents. For example, 1,12-bisethylspermine and bisnaphthalimide (elinafide) are currently in phase I clinical trials for the treatment of certain cancers. Here, the biological activities of two new groups of polyamine derivative, namely the oxa-polyamines and the bisnaphthalimides,(More)
Beef and dairy bull calves fed a low-nutrition diet during early life had decreased concentrations of circulating insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I), delayed increases in testosterone, smaller testes and delayed puberty compared with those fed high-nutrition diets. Although IGF-1 has important roles in Sertoli cell function in rats and mice, this has not(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the duration for which sperm from the North American bison (Bison bison) could be chilled prior to being cryopreserved, without compromising post- thaw sperm quality. This would permit transport of samples collected remotely, to the laboratory (at 4°C) for cryopreservation. Epididymal sperm from plains bison (n =(More)
