Microsomal glutathione transferase 1 (MGST1) possesses glutathione transferase and peroxidase activities and is active in biotransformation of xenobiotics and in defense against oxidative stress. To assess MGST1 role in the development and functioning of PC12 cells, we constructed a cell line with reduced MGST1 (PC12_M). Real-time PCR and immunoblot assays(More)
The inactivation of tumor suppressor genes located within 9p21 locus (CDKN2A, CDKN2B) occurs in up to 30% of children with B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (BCP-ALL), but its independent prognostic significance remains controversial. In order to investigate the prognostic impact of deletions and promoter methylation within 9p21, 641 children(More)
Microsomal glutathione transferase 1 (MGST1) is an integral homo-trimeric membrane protein with transferase and peroxidase activities. With glutathione as a co-substrate, it scavenges toxic compounds and may exert anti-apoptotic effect. We examined the effect of suppression of plasma membrane Ca(2+)-ATPase isoforms--PMCA2 or PMCA3 on MGST1 in PC12 cells.(More)
