The purpose of the present work was to study the mechanisms involved in apoptosis induced by oxidative stress in rat hepatocytes. We focused on the apoptotic signaling molecules cytochrome c, Bcl-2 and Bax. Rat hepatocytes were exposed for 1 h to increasing concentrations of tert-butylhydroperoxide (t-BHP). Using lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) leakage as a(More)
Oxidative stress has been implicated in many physiopathologies including neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, and in mechanisms of action of environmental toxicants. tert-butylhydroperoxide (t-BHP) is an organic lipid hydroperoxide analogue, which is commonly used as a pro-oxidant for evaluating mechanisms involving(More)
EphB2 is a tyrosine kinase receptor that has been shown to be a tumor suppressor gene in various cancers. However the mechanisms of this function are unknown. We report that EphB2 induces a form of cell death that does not involve the formation of apoptotic bodies or nuclear fragmentation and is instead accompanied by extensive vacuolization.

The low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 1 (LRP-1) is a multiligand endocytic receptor, which plays a pivotal role in controlling cytoskeleton dynamics during cancer cell migration. Its rapid endocytosis further allows efficient clearance of extracellular ligands. Concanavalin-A (ConA) is a lectin used to trigger in vitro physiological cellular(More)
Inhibition of soluble matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity is among the non-antibiotic cellular effects exerted by the anti-inflammatory tetracycline derivative minocycline. The impact of minocycline on the signal transduction functions of membrane-bound MMPs is however unknown. We assessed minocycline in a concanavalin-A (ConA)-activated human HepG2(More)
A 7beta-O-glycosylated docetaxel analogue was semi-synthesized from 9-dihydro-13-acetylbaccatin III, the most abundant taxane isolated from the needles of Taxus canadensis. It was shown to be more bioactive than paclitaxel according to the tubulin assay. It had a reduced potency in the MCF7 cell line cytotoxicity assay compared to paclitaxel, but it(More)
