Specific siRNAs that target estrogen receptor alpha (ERalpha) were encapsulated in nanocapsules (NCs). We produced small (approximately 100-200 nm) ERalpha-siRNA NCs with a water core by incorporating two mixed duplexes of specific ERalpha-siRNAs (ERalpha-mix-siRNA) into NCs. The encapsulation yield that was obtained with poly(iso-butylcyanoacrylate)(More)
Lipoplexes containing a hyaluronic acid-dioleoylphosphatidylethanolamine (HA-DOPE) conjugate were designed to target the CD44 receptor on breast cancer cells. Cationic liposomes composed of a mixture of [2-(2,3-didodecyloxypropyl)hydroxyethyl]ammonium bromide (DE) and dioleoylphosphatidylethanolamine (DOPE) with or without HA-DOPE were prepared,(More)
For the first time, two organometallic triphenylethylene compounds (Fc-diOH and DFO), with strong antiproliferative activity in breast cancer cells, but insoluble in biological fluids, were incorporated in two types of stealth nanoparticles (NP): PEG/PLA nanospheres (NS) and nanocapsules (NC). Their physicochemical parameters were measured (size, zeta(More)
The suppression of oestrogen receptor α (ERα) functions by silencing RNAs in association with or not with anti-oestrogens (AEs) both in vitro and in breast cancer cell xenografts was assessed. In vitro, a prolonged decrease in ERα protein expression and an enhanced AE-induced inhibition of ERα-mediated transcription, together with antiproliferative(More)
Antioestrogens (AEs) are synthetic molecules that block proliferation and induce apoptosis in breast cancer (BC) cells, principally by competing with oestradiol for binding to oestrogen receptors. Their antiproliferative activity and their pro-apoptotic capacity are well documented and a small number of molecules of this class are currently used clinically(More)
In MCF-7 (estrogen receptor (ER)+) and in MDA-MB-231 (ER-) cells stably transfected with either estrogen receptor alpha (ERalpha) or beta (ERbeta) subtype (MDA-MB-231 stably transfected with the mouse ERalpha cDNA (MERA) and MDA-MB-231 stably transfected with the human ERbeta cDNA (HERB), respectively) N-term heat shock protein of 90kDa (hsp90) ligands(More)
The cochaperone p23 is required for the chaperoning cycle of hsp90 and to enhance the maturation of several client proteins. Tosylcyclonovobiocic acids (4TCNA and 7TCNA) are potent analogs of novobiocin and induce cell cycle arrest, apoptosis and degradation of hsp90 client proteins in a panel of cancer cells. In this study, Western blotting shows that(More)
A new series of coumarin inhibitors of hsp90 lacking the noviose moiety as well as substituents on C-7 and C-8 positions of the aromatic ring was synthesised and their hsp90 inhibitory activity has been delineated: for example, their capacity to induce the degradation of client proteins and to inhibit estradiol-induced transcription in human breast cancer(More)
We describe a lanthanide biosensor that responds to CDK4 kinase activity in melanoma cell extracts through a significant and dose dependent increase in luminescence, thanks to sensitization of a DOTA[Tb3+] complex incorporated into a CDK4 substrate peptide by a unique tryptophan residue in an adjacent phosphoaminoacid binding moiety.
