BACKGROUND Curcumin (CUR) has deserved extensive research due to its anti-inflammatory properties, of interest in human diseases including cancer. However, pleiotropic even paradoxical responses of tumor cells have been reported, and the mechanisms of action of CUR remain uncompletely elucidated. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS (1)H-NMR spectroscopy-based(More)
Marine natural products are a source of promising agents for cancer treatment. However, there is a need to improve the evaluation of their mechanism of action in tumors. Metabolomics of the response to anti-tumor agents is a tool to reveal candidate biomarkers and metabolic targets. We used two-dimensional high-resolution magic angle spinning proton-NMR(More)
Recent NMR spectroscopy developments, such as high-resolution magic angle spinning (HRMAS) probes and correlation-enhanced 2D sequences, now allow improved investigations of phospholipid (Plp) metabolism. Using these modalities we previously demonstrated that a mouse-bearing melanoma tumor responded to chloroethyl nitrosourea (CENU) treatment in vivo by(More)
NMR spectroscopy-based metabolomics still needs development in quantification procedures. A method was designed for quantitative two-dimensional high resolution magic angle spinning (HRMAS) proton-NMR spectroscopy-based metabolite profiling of intact cells. It uses referencing of metabolite-related NMR signals to protein-related NMR signals and yields(More)
The thermal dependence of the translational diffusion coefficient and of the regional blood volume was investigated in vivo by using a special MR pulsed gradient technique with reduced sensitivity to bulk tissue motion. Measurements were done at 0.5 T, using a small gradient insert. The diffusion coefficient of muscle water was calibrated against(More)
Medical imaging is now giving access not only to anatomy but also to functions of organs in the human body. Functional imaging may yield a direct appreciation of the function of a given organ, as is the case when measuring ejection fraction of heart with SPECT. Alternately the approach is indirect. This is the case of cerebral functional imaging, either(More)
Tumors frequently have abnormal L-methionine (Met) metabolism, the so-called Met-dependence phenotype that refers to the inability to proliferate in the absence of Met. However, the origin of this phenotype is still unknown and may arise from one of several pathways of Met metabolism. To help characterize the metabolic features of Met-dependent/independent(More)
The hypermetabolic nature of cancer cells and their increased reliance on "aerobic glycolysis", as originally described by Otto Warburg and colleagues, are considered metabolic hallmarks of cancer cells. BRCA1 is a major tumor suppressor in breast cancer and it was implicated in numerous pathways resulting in anticarcinogenic functions. The objective of our(More)
We study, in this paper, a model for the core of the system of the Glycerophospholipid metabolism in the murine cells. It comprises the simple and enzymatic reactions of PhosphatidylEthanolamine and the PhosphatidylCholine. The model's general structure is taken from a number of books and articles. We translate this model into a set of ordinary differential(More)
