Retinoic acid metabolism and mechanism of action: a review.
Retinoids are vitamin A (retinol) derivatives essential for normal embryo development and epithelial differentiation. These compounds are also involved in chemoprevention and differentiation therapyExpand

Activation of Retinoic Acid Receptor-dependent Transcription by All-trans-retinoic Acid Metabolites and Isomers*
We have shown that four metabolites of all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA) (4-oxo-, 4-OH-, 18-OH-, and 5,6-epoxy-RA) can induce maturation of NB4 promyelocytic leukemia cells (Idres, N., Benoit, G.,Expand

Human cytochrome P450s involved in the metabolism of 9-cis- and 13-cis-retinoic acids.
The purpose of this work was to identify the principal human cytochrome P450s (CYPs) involved in the metabolism of the retinoic acid (RA) isomers, 9-cis- and 13-cis-RA, by using a combination ofExpand

Regulation of CYP26A1 expression by selective RAR and RXR agonists in human NB4 promyelocytic leukemia cells.
All-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) can induce complete remission in acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), but resistance to this treatment develops rapidly partly due to increased ATRA metabolism. AmongExpand

Hafnium oxide nanoparticles: toward an in vitro predictive biological effect?
BackgroundHafnium oxide, NBTXR3 nanoparticles were designed for high dose energy deposition within cancer cells when exposed to ionizing radiation. The purpose of this study was to assess theExpand

One pot synthesis of new hybrid versatile nanocarrier exhibiting efficient stability in biological environment for use in photodynamic therapy.
A new versatile hybrid nanocarrier has been designed using a "soft chemistry" synthesis, to efficiently encapsulate a photosensitizer - the protoporphyrin IX (Pp IX) - while preserving its activityExpand

Radiotherapy-Activated Hafnium Oxide Nanoparticles Produce Abscopal Effect in a Mouse Colorectal Cancer Model
Purpose Despite tremendous results achieved by immune checkpoint inhibitors, most patients are not responders, mainly because of the lack of a pre-existing anti-tumor immune response. Thus, solutionsExpand

DNA damage enhancement by radiotherapy-activated hafnium oxide nanoparticles improves cGAS-STING pathway activation in human colorectal cancer cells.
The cGAS-STING pathway can be activated by radiation induced DNA damage and because of its important role in anti-cancer immunity activation, methods to increase its activation in cancer cells couldExpand

Abstract LB-A30: Hafnium oxide nanoparticles with radiotherapy induce immunogenic cell death
Background - Between 70 to 90% of patient have "cold" tumors, i.e. devoid or poorly infiltrated by immune cells, rendering inoperative their treatment by immune checkpoint inhibitors. To allow theseExpand
