BACKGROUND Histone deacetylase inhibitors have been proposed as potential enhancers of the cytotoxic effect of cisplatin and other anticancer drugs. Their application would permit the use of lower therapeutic doses and reduction of the adverse side effects of the drugs. However, the molecular mechanisms by which they sensitize the cells towards anticancer(More)
It is well established that DNA and histone synthesis are tightly coupled. Nevertheless, these two processes can be partially uncoupled by drugs specifically inhibiting protein or DNA synthesis, and also during n-butyrate-induced differentiation of Friend cells. The fate of the histones synthesized in the absence of DNA synthesis is unknown; they could be:(More)
Helix pomatia agglutinin (HPA) is a N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) binding lectin, found in the reproductive gland of a Roman snail. The present study has shown that HPA, in addition to its carbohydrate binding capacity possesses a hydrophobic binding activity. This protein binds with high affinity (k(D)=1.9-2.4 microM) steroid hormones: testosterone and(More)
