Epigenetic mechanisms such as DNA methylation and histone modification are important in stem cell differentiation. Methylation is principally associated with transcriptional repression, and histone acetylation is correlated with an active chromatin state. We determined the effects of these epigenetic mechanisms on adipocyte differentiation in mesenchymal(More)
Three new antitumour drugs containing two 5-fluorouracil moieties at both ends of the structure and a two amide bond linker were synthesized. Appropriated bis-acetal were reacted with two equivalents of 5-FU to afford the desired compounds. These drugs were evaluated for their ability to induce myogenic maturation in vitro on human rhabdomyosarcoma cells in(More)
