The genetic makeup of the organism appears to dictate the species-specific rate of aging and the maximum life-span potential. The genotype is converted to phenotype through transcriptional and translational regulation. A group of gene regulatory proteins (transcription factors) play critical roles in controlling the rates of transcription of specific genes(More)
Oncolytic virotherapy is an emerging biotherapeutic platform for cancer treatment, which is based on selective infection/killing of cancer cells by viruses. Herein we identify the human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) as an oncolytic virus. Using prostate cancer models, we show dramatic enhancement of RSV infectivity in vitro in the androgen-independent,(More)
BACKGROUND Oncolytic virotherapy for cancer treatment utilizes viruses for selective infection and death of cancer cells without any adverse effect on normal cells. We previously reported that the human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a novel oncolytic virus against androgen-independent PC-3 human prostate cancer cells. The present study extends the(More)
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)-sulfotransferase (SULT2A1) is a phase II metabolizing/detoxifying enzyme with substrate preference for physiological hydroxysteroids, diverse drugs and other xenobiotics. The first-pass tissues (liver and intestine) express SULT2A1 at high levels. In senescent male rodents, Sult2A1 gene transcription in the liver is markedly(More)
Plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) is a multifunctional protein that has important roles in inflammation and wound healing. Its aberrant regulation may contribute to many disease processes such as heart disease. The PAI-1 promoter is responsive to multiple inputs including cytokines, growth factors, steroids and oxidative stress. The statin(More)
