We generated expression vectors for N-terminally green fluorescent protein -tagged NR2A and NR2B subunits (GFP-NR2A and GFP-NR2B). Both constructs expressed GFP and formed functional NMDA channels with similar properties to untagged controls when co-transfected with NR1 subunit partner in HEK293 cells. Primary cultured hippocampal neurons were transfected(More)
Multidrug resistance mediated by the drug efflux protein, P-glycoprotein (P-gp), is one of the principal mechanisms by which tumor cells escape the cell death induced by chemotherapeutic agents. In our previous study, we demonstrated that KBH-A42 [N-hydroxy-3-(2-oxo-1-(3-phenylpropyl)-1,2,5,6-tetrahydropyridin-3-yl)propanamide], a synthetic histone(More)
In order to facilitate the intracellular delivery of macromolecules, Pep-1 peptide-modified liposomal (Pep1-Lipo) nanocarriers were designed and examined for their in vitro cell translocation capability. Pep-1 peptides were coupled via thiol-maleimide linkage to small unilamellar vesicles composed of phosphatidylcholine, Tween 80, and(More)
This study was performed to elucidate the effect of a lipid-soluble ginseng extract (LSGE) on cancer invasion and metastasis. The LSGE, even at noncytotoxic concentrations, potently inhibited invasion and migration of B16F10 mouse melanoma cells in a dose-dependent manner. In the presence of 3 μg/mL of LSGE, the invasion and migration of B16F10 cells were(More)
BACKGROUND Though herbal medicines have been used for cancer prevention and treatment, their scientific evidences still remain unclear so far. Thus, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) project has been actively executed to reveal the scientific evidences in the USA and other countries. In the present study, we elucidated antitumor mechanism of(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the anti-tumor activity of KBH-A42, a novel synthetic histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor. KBH-A42 was shown to significantly suppress the proliferation of all 14 human cancer cell lines tested. Among these cell lines, the human leukemia cell line K562 was the most sensitive, whereas the UM-UC-3 bladder cancer cells(More)
