PURPOSE A lipid-based prodrug of mitomycin C [MMC; 2,3-(distearoyloxy)propane-1-dithio-4'-benzyloxycarbonyl-MMC] was designed for liposome formulation. The purpose of this study was to examine the in vitro cytotoxicity, pharmacokinetics, in vivo toxicity, and in vivo antitumor activity of this new lipid-based prodrug formulated in polyethylene glycol-coated(More)
Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a primitive sarcoma with a consistent cytogenetic abnormality, t(11;22)(p13;q12). This chromosomal translocation generates a chimeric transcript that is formed by fusion of the 5' region of the Ewing's sarcoma gene, EWS, with the 3' DNA-binding segment of WT1, the Wilms' tumor suppressor gene. We collected 14(More)
S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine hydrolase (AdoHcy hydrolase, EC 3.3.1.1), a specific target for antiviral drug design, catalyzes the hydrolysis of AdoHcy to adenosine (Ado) and homocysteine (Hcy) as well as the synthesis of AdoHcy from Ado and Hcy. The enzyme isolated from different sources has been shown to contain tightly bound NAD+. Based on the 2.0(More)
