We investigated several lipophilic drugs with a polycyclic structure for their effect on the net uptake of vincristine in vincristine-resistant P388 leukemia cells. Fourteen of 23 agents promoted vincristine uptake in the resistant cells. The net increase in vincristine uptake was caused by prevention of its outward transport rather than by stimulation of(More)
Both pro- and anti-oncogenic roles of miR-221 and miR-222 microRNAs are reported in several types of human cancers. A previous study suggested their oncogenic role in invasiveness in lung cancer, albeit only one cell line (H460) was used. To further evaluate involvement of miR-221 and miR-222 in lung cancer, we investigated the effects of miR-221 and(More)
Neutral and acid sphingomyelinases were copurified from a rat brain P2 fraction by extraction with 1% Triton X-100, followed by (NH4)2SO4 fractionation, acetone powdering, extraction with 1% Triton X-100, (NH4)2SO4 fractionation, Sepharose CL-6B chromatography, and chromatofocusing. The neutral sphingomyelinase was eluted with buffer containing 0.4 M NaCl(More)
With favorable electrical and optical properties, carbon nanotube (CNT) based field effect transistors (FETs) are a promising area of nano-scale research. Compared to conventional MOSFETs, CNT-FETs can be used to create smaller, higher speed devices. However, due to the lack of precise control over CNT growth and the CNT's sensitivity to adhesive materials(More)
