BACKGROUND Multidrug resistance (MDR) phenotype of malignant cells is the major problem in the chemotherapy of neoplasia. The treatment of leukemia with retinoids is aimed on the induction of leukemic cells differentiation. However the interconnections between retinoid regulated differentiation of leukemic cells and regulation of MDR remains unclear. (More)
Plasmids containing four GFP-tagged isoforms of the human GDNF gene, with both pre- and pro-regions (pre–pro- GDNF), with the pre- (pre-GDNF) or the pro-region (pro-GDNF) alone, and without the pre- and pro-regions (mGDNF), were used to transfect HEK293 cells (human embryonic kidney cell line). The effect of the transgenic products on the growth of(More)
The goal of our study was to obtain direct evidence of co-ordinated regulation of P-glycoprotein (P-gp)-mediated multidrug resistance (MDR) and differentiation in tumour cells and to study some signalling pathways involved in joint regulation of these two cell phenotypes. The sublines of human melanoma (mS) and hepatoma (human HepG2 and rat McA RH 7777)(More)
Novel 3,5-bis(arylidene)-4-piperidones modified with diethyl[(aryl)methyl]phosphonate moiety attached to the piperidone nitrogen atom have been synthesized by crotonic condensation of aromatic aldehydes with diethyl[(4-oxopiperidin-1-yl)(aryl)methyl]phosphonates in the presence of LiClO4/Et3N system or acetonitrile solution of boron trifluoride etherate.(More)
Protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) is widely used in photodynamic diagnosis. To date, the details of molecular mechanisms underlying PpIX accumulation in malignant cells after 5-ALA administration remain unclear. The fluorescence of PpIX was studied in human glioma cells. Several cell cultures were established from glioma tumor tissue to study the differences between(More)
The activation of genetic constructs including the Drosophila hsp70 promoter with four and eight HSE sequences in the regulatory region has been described in human cells. The promoter was shown to be induced at lower temperatures compared to the human hsp70 promoter. The promoter activity increased after a 60-min heat shock already at 38 °C in human cells.(More)
Novel cytotoxic 3,5-bis(arylidene)-4-piperidones conjugated with phosphonate groups via 1,2,3-triazole ring have been synthesized and their antitumor properties have been evaluated. Synthetic route to these conjugates is based on 1,3-cycloaddition of diethyl (ω-azidoalkyl)phosphonates to 1-prop-2-ynyl-piperidin-4-one in the presence of Cu(I) catalyst(More)
