To determine the role of p53 protein on the cellular effects of amifostine, we used molecularly engineered HCT116 colon cancer cells in which the p53 gene was inactivated by targeted homologous recombination or p53 protein was degraded by high-level expression of papillomavirus E6 protein. Amifostine induced a G1 arrest and protected against paclitaxel(More)
BACKGROUND Studies comparing patient survival of hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) have yielded conflicting results and no such study was from South-East Asia. This study aimed to compare the survival outcomes of patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) who started dialysis with HD and PD in Singapore. METHODS Survival data for a maximum(More)
Cellular protein quality control (PQC) systems selectively target misfolded or otherwise aberrant proteins for degradation by the ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS). How cells discern abnormal from normal proteins remains incompletely understood, but involves in part the recognition between ubiquitin E3 ligases and degradation signals (degrons) that are(More)
A 95 kDa membrane protein (P-95) has been previously noted to be overexpressed in a doxorubicin-resistant subline of the MCF-7 breast cancer line and in clinical samples obtained from patients with solid tumours refractory to doxorubicin. We performed Western blotting on blast cell lysates from adults with acute myeloid leukaemia, using antisera to P-95.(More)
Background. The use of spot urine protein to creatinine ratios in estimating 24 hr urine protein excretion rates for diagnosing and managing chronic kidney disease (CKD) predated the standardization of creatinine assays. The comparative predictive performance of spot urine ratios and 24 hr urine collections (of albumin or protein) for the clinical outcomes(More)
